Rosenbauer International AG has brokered its first syndicated loan. The debut transaction is for € 170 million, with the option of increasing the amount. The term is three years, with the option of twice extending the agreement by a further year each time. In taking this step, the Rosenbauer Group is optimizing the maturity profile of its existing bank facilities and securing the refinancing of its existing liabilities.
'The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic is also being felt on the debt capital market. So I'm all the more pleased that we were able to successfully implement this syndicated loan,' says Sebastian Wolf, Chief Financial Officer of Rosenbauer International AG. 'This, combined with the equally successful placement of a promissory note loan last year, has allowed us to strengthen the financial foundations for the further development of our Group. This gives us planning reliability in the medium to long term.'
The transaction was arranged by UniCredit Bank Austria AG and Raiffeisen Bank International AG, who acted as joint coordinators, mandated lead arrangers and bookrunners. The banking syndicate also includes Commerzbank AG, Erste Bank AG, RLB Oberösterreich AG and Sparkasse Oberösterreich AG.
