Gerresheimer signs credit facility with improved conditions

Duesseldorf, October 8, 2019—Based on its good business results, Gerresheimer AG has increased its syndicated loan relative to the previous agreement by another EUR 100.0m, from EUR 450.0m to EUR 550.0m, while simultaneously further improving the conditions. Gerresheimer expects a long-term reduction in financing costs by some EUR 1m per year.
Once again, the proposed facility amount was substantially oversubscribed. The facility has a term of five years plus two extension options of one year each. It is arranged in the form of a revolving credit facility. “Based on our successful business results, we have succeeded in leveraging the favorable market conditions to extend our financial headroom for the long-term and improve the conditions under the facility documentation. This provides us with a stable foundation for continuing to systematically advance our business objectives,” commented Dr. Bernd Metzner, CFO of Gerresheimer AG.
