Carlsberg Breweries A/S (“Carlsberg”) has entered into a new revolving credit facility (“the Facility”) of EUR 2.510bn maturing February 2019, with an option to extend the maturity until February 2020/2021. The Facility has been signed with the group of relationship banks and replaces the EUR 1.749bn facility signed in 2010 and the EUR 800m facility signed in 2011.
With the Facility in place, Carlsberg has extended the maturity profile of its bank commitments and has achieved favourable pricing and terms. The Facility is for general corporate purposes.
The Facility gained a healthy oversubscription and was self-arranged by Carlsberg.
Carlsberg's Deputy CEO and CFO Jørn P. Jensen says “We are very pleased with the terms of the new credit facility and the confidence that our banks have shown us once again”.
A total of 19 banks are participating in the Facility. Seven banks have been awarded the title “Mandated Lead Arranger and Bookrunner”, seven banks have been awarded the title “Mandated Lead Arranger” and five banks have been awarded the title “Lead Arranger”. Danske Bank is Facility Agent.
