This Amendment No. 3 amends the statement on Schedule 13D filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission by Qatar Airways Group Q.C.S.C (formerly known as Qatar Airways Q.C.S.C., “Qatar Airways”) and Qatar Airways Investments (UK) Ltd. (“QAI UK”; together with Qatar Airways, the “Reporting Persons”) on January 17, 2017 (as amended, the “Schedule 13D”) as amended by Amendment No. 1 filed by the Reporting Persons on September 7, 2021 and Amendment No. 2 filed by the Reporting Persons on December 16, 2021 with respect to the Common Stock, no par value, of LATAM Airlines Group S.A. (“LATAM” or the “Issuer”). Capitalized terms used but not defined in this Amendment No. 3 have the meanings set forth in the Schedule 13D. Except as specifically provided herein, this Amendment No. 3 does not modify any of the information previously reported in the Schedule 13D.

 

Item 4.

Purpose of Transaction.

Item 4 of the Schedule 13D is hereby amended and supplemented as follows:

On January 12, 2022, QAI UK, Costa Verde Aeronáutica S.A., and Delta Air Lines, Inc. (collectively, the “Facilitating Shareholders”) entered into a Backstop Commitment Agreement with LATAM and the other Debtors (as may be amended, modified, or supplemented, the “BCA”), setting forth the terms by which each Facilitating Shareholder, severally and not jointly, will participate in the rights offering for the common stock rights offering and/or a tranche of unsecured notes convertible into shares of reorganized LATAM equity in connection with the Company Plan and in furtherance of the terms of the RSA. The Reporting Persons anticipate that their percentage ownership in LATAM following the transaction will be no greater that their percentage ownership prior to the transaction. Also on January 12, 2022, the Debtors, the Facilitating Shareholders and certain members of the Ad Hoc Group constituting the Requisite Commitment Creditors (as defined in the RSA) entered into an amendment to the RSA (the “RSA Amendment”) with respect to the terms of the tranche of the unsecured convertible notes rights offering in which the Facilitating Shareholders would participate.

The foregoing descriptions of the BCA and the RSA Amendment are qualified in their entirety by the express terms of such agreements, copies of which are attached hereto as Exhibit 7.4 and Exhibit 7.5 and are incorporated herein by reference.

The Reporting Persons disclaim membership in a “group” within the meaning of Section 13(d) of the Act and Regulation 13D-G thereunder, with any other person, including the Other Shareholders or any member of the Ad Hoc Group, and nothing in this Amendment No. 3 shall be deemed an admission that the Reporting Persons are a member of a “group” within the meaning of Section 13(d) of the Act and Regulation 13D-G thereunder.

 

Item 6.

Contracts, Arrangements, Understandings or Relationships with Respect to Securities of the Issuer.

Item 6 of the Schedule 13D is hereby amended and supplemented as follows:

The information contained in Item 4 is incorporated herein by reference.

Exhibit     
7.4    Backstop Commitment Agreement, dated as of January 12, 2022, incorporated by reference to Exhibit 99.1 to the Form 6-K filed by the Issuer on January 13, 2022.
7.5    First Amendment to Restructuring Support Agreement, dated as of January 12, 2022.
