Saint-Gobain extends maturity of €4bn RC facilities
Source - SMW
Compagnie de Saint-Gobain has signed with a group of banks an undrawn revolving credit facility for €1.5bn, maturing in December 2022 with two options for an additional one-year extension each.
This replaces a facility of an equivalent amount which was due to mature in December 2018.
Saint-Gobain said the new facility was significantly oversubscribed with bank commitments reaching €2.5bn.
Saint-Gobain also obtained the agreement from banks to extend the maturity of another undrawn revolving credit facility for €2.5bn from December 2020 to December 2022, also with two options for an additional one-year extension each.
The cost of this facility has now been aligned with that of the new €1.5bn facility.
Saint-Gobain said 32 banks of 12 nationalities were participating in at least one of these facilities, underlining their confidence in the credit quality of the group.
Saint-Gobain said the financial conditions for the two facilities going forward represented an annual saving of over €4m in financial charges.
