1Malaysia Development Berhad (“1MDB”) has today undertaken the first update call for its USD denominated bondholders (“Holders”).

During the call 1MDB provided a current update on the status of the bonds and outlined the next steps of the process.

1MDB is committed to an open dialogue with Holders throughout this process and there will be further update calls held in due course.
