MYTRAVEL is discussing offering a 20% stake in the
company to bondholders as part of its negotiations to secure £220 million worth
of convertible bonds by September.

Also under discussion is to extend the maturity of the
bonds by three years to January 2007, a possible increase in the rate of
interest payable on the bonds, and a “success fee” based on the
percentage in the company’s market capitalisation.

The company confirmed it remained confident in securing
the deal within the agreed timescale. In April it announced it had successfully
negotiated a £1.3 billion refinancing deal.
