Trelleborg strengthens long-term financing
Trelleborg AB and Trelleborg Treasury AB have jointly concluded an agreement regarding an extension of their existing syndicated credit facilities established in 2011. The extended credit facilities totaling EUR 750 M and USD 625 M, equivalent to approximately SEK 11,000 M, have a tenor of five years and will mature in December 2018, with an option of extension thereafter for a maximum of two further years.
A total of 17 financial institutions from nine countries are participating in the credit facilities. Commerzbank Aktiengesellschaft, DNB, Nordea, SEB, Swedbank and UniCredit Bank Austria AG acted as Co-ordinating Bookrunners.
“We are pleased that we have been able to work together with several reputable banks to strengthen our long-term financing by extending our existing syndicated credit facilities. The facilities provide a solid financing base for the Trelleborg Group until 2018. They also ensure good flexibility to allow us to robustly improve our market positions over the next few years,” says Ulf Berghult, Chief Financial Officer.
