Debt payable to entities under the common control of Thomson Reuters Corporation
Following the formation of the DLC and subsequent group reorganization, there are a number of loan arrangements in place between Thomson Reuters PLC companies and companies under the control of Thomson Reuters Corporation. These loans carry terms that are comparable with terms that would have been arranged in similar agreements with third parties. Net interest
payable in the period on these loans amounted to £99 million and has been charged to finance costs. The following arrangements were in place at June 30, 2008.
Of the debt payable to entities under the common control of Thomson Reuters Corporation in less than one year, a total of £3,555 million bears interest at a variable rate of 3 month US$ LIBOR plus a specified margin of 2.25% and is repayable on demand. The revolving loan is a US$150 million facility bearing interest based upon the US Prime rate plus a specified margin of 0.75%.
In addition to the above amounts, 269 million of Reuters Group Limited non-voting redeemable preference shares of £1 each are held by entities under the common control of Thomson Reuters Corporation, and are classified within non-current liabilities. Each preference share currently in issue shall be redeemed no later than April 2059. Each preference share accrues a fixed cumulative preference dividend at an annual rate of 5% of its nominal value, payable half-yearly in June and December.
