Follow-up financing – Hanover, 20 December 2021 – Delticom AG (German Securities Code (WKN) 514680, ISIN DE 00005146807, stock exchange symbol DEX) today concluded a syndicated loan agreement with a term of two years with Commerzbank, Deutsche Bank and Sparkasse Hannover, which were also represented in the previous financing group. The purpose of the agreement is the general corporate financing of the Delticom Group, the repayment of the existing financial liabilities under the restructuring credit agreement of 13 December 2019 and the financing of the general letter of credit and guarantee requirements of the Delticom Group. The financing framework that will be available to the company in the future via the syndicated loan agreement is sufficiently structured with regard to the future growth targets.
With effect from the contractually stipulated end of the restructuring period on 31 December 2021, three of the six lenders will withdraw as financing banks at their own request after full repayment of the credit lines that may have been drawn down from them at that time.
The restructuring agreement was extended today with the remaining lending banks until 31 January 2022 to allow the company and these banks sufficient time to qualify for disbursement under the new syndicated loan agreement.
The trustee agreement concluded in connection with the restructuring agreement regarding the shares of the anchor investor Prüfer GmbH was terminated today.
The operational restructuring was already declared successful in August by the restructuring and turnaround consultant Struktur Management Partner. With the first payment under the syndicated loan agreement planned for January 2022, the financial restructuring of the company will also be completed.
