Vossloh AG completes comprehensive restructuring of Group financing
Vossloh AG has concluded a new syndicated loan in the amount of €150 million. The financing agreement has a term of five years until November 2022 and contains two options to extend the final maturity of one year each. These options can be exercised prior to the first and second anniversary of the agreement. Furthermore, the loan amount can be increased if required by up to further €150 million. The funds are available to the Company in the form of a revolving credit facility that can be flexibly utilized.
Together with this transaction and the issue of a Schuldschein loan in the amount of €250 million in July 2017, Vossloh has now completely replaced the syndicated loan that it concluded in 2015 with a term running until April 2018. “When putting together the new financing agreement, it was important to us that we not only significantly improved the conditions of the agreement, but also that we ensured maximum flexibility for our targeted growth. We have achieved these goals in every respect and I would like to thank our credit partners for their trust in our performance and strategic direction,” said Oliver Schuster, Chief Financial Officer of Vossloh.
The new syndicated loan was made available by a consortium consisting of eight lending banks within the framework of a club deal.
