Sandvik resumes loan agreement from the European Investment Bank
For the second time Sandvik resumes a loan agreement from The European Investment Bank (EIB). The new agreement amounts to 250 million EUR and is based on Sandvik's investments in Research and Development in Europe during the years of 2012 to 2015. A similar loan was signed in 2007 for activities carried out during the years 2007 to 2011.
The disbursement of the loan was made in October, which has a 10 year maturity. Amortization will start after four years.
"This loan extends and evens our debt maturity profile at the same time as it contributes to a further diversification of funding sources, in line with Sandvik's funding strategy," says Anders Örbom, Group Treasurer, Sandvik AB.
