AP Alternative Assets, L.P. Announces the Sale of its remaining interests in Athene Holdings, Ltd and its Intention to Commence a Liquidation Process
Guernsey, Channel Islands, September 11, 2020: AP Alternative Assets, L.P. (“AAA”; Euronext Amsterdam: AAA) announces that Athene Holding, Ltd (“Athene”) will be repurchasing AAA’s remaining interests in Athene as a step towards the eventual liquidation of AAA.

The Board of Directors of AAA Guernsey Limited (the “Board”), the general partner of AAA, has determined that as part of the remaining steps to achieve the voluntary solvent liquidation of AAA it has today entered into an agreement with Athene pursuant to which Athene has agreed to purchase for cash all of the 605,554 common shares in Athene (“Athene Shares”) indirectly held by AAA.  The purchase price per Athene Share payable by Athene is $35.70 (which price equals the market price of the Athene Shares as at close of trading on September 10, 2020) resulting in an aggregate proceeds of $21,618,277.80 payable by Athene.

The proceeds of this sale will be used to settle outstanding liabilities and expenses (including expenses relating to ultimately winding up AAA). After payment of these expenses the remaining cash of AAA (if any) will be distributed to AAA unitholders (unless the cash, on a per unit basis, is de minimis, in which case it is expected to be given to charity). This distribution which, based on information now available to AAA, is currently estimated to be between USD 7 cents and 9 cents per AAA unit, is expected to be distributed to unitholders by the end of this calendar year. A further announcement in this regard will be made at the relevant time.

After all liabilities are settled and any remaining assets distributed or given to charity as set out above, it is expected that AAA will apply for the units in AAA to be delisted from Euronext Amsterdam and AAA will subsequently be liquidated.
