Plan of Merger


On September 2, 2014, NCLH entered into an Agreement and Plan of Merger, as amended (the “Merger Agreement”) with Portland Merger Sub, Inc., a corporation organized under the laws of the Republic of Panama and a wholly-owned direct subsidiary of NCLC (“Merger Sub”), Prestige Cruises International, Inc., (“Prestige”) and Apollo Management, L.P., a Delaware limited partnership, as the stockholders’ representative.  At the Effective Time (as defined in the Merger Agreement) and subject to the terms and conditions contemplated in the Merger Agreement, Merger Sub will merge with and into Prestige (the “Merger”), and upon consummation of the Merger, Merger Sub will cease to exist and Prestige will continue as the surviving corporation and wholly-owned subsidiary of NCLC. The Merger is expected to close within the fourth quarter of 2014. For more on the Merger, we refer you to our Definitive Information Statement on Schedule 14C filed with the SEC on October 16, 2014.


Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers


Prior to our initial public offering in January of 2013, members of our management and former management were granted profits interests in NCLC, which were converted into units in NCLC in connection with our initial public offering (the “Management Units”). Subject to the terms of the Amended and Restated United States Tax Agreement for NCLC (as further amended, the “Tax Agreement”) and the Exchange Agreement for NCLC that forms a part of the Tax Agreement (as amended, the “Exchange Agreement”), each vested Management Unit may currently be exchanged for one ordinary share of NCLH.


On October 17, 2014, the NCLH’s Compensation Committee approved a series of actions intended to result in our named executive officers and other holders of Management Units exchanging their Management Units for ordinary shares of NCLH so that NCLH may become the sole member and 100% owner of the economic interests in NCLC.
