Kreate Group Plc has signed a credit and credit limit agreement worth EUR 52.5 million
Kreate Group Plc (“Kreate Group”) has, on 6 July 2022, signed a new credit and credit limit agreement (hereinafter referred to as the “Financing Arrangement”) worth EUR 52.5 million with OP Corporate Bank.
The Financing Arrangement replaces Kreate Group’s earlier credit limit and loan agreements that would have been due in 2023. The company intends to use EUR 25.75 million for refinancing its existing loans, and to reserve EUR 15 million as credit limits for the company’s general working capital needs. The Financing Arrangement will further enable growth according to the company’s strategy in the coming years.
– The Financing Arrangement offers us good starting points for executing on our growth plans, extends the maturity of our loans and offers flexibility for our financing. The agreement was drawn up efficiently with OP Corporate Bank and our cooperation was smooth. I am very happy with the outcome, says Mikko Laine, Chief Financial Officer for Kreate Group.
The new Financing Arrangement has a duration of four years, and it contains one financial covenant measuring the ratio between Kreate Group’s net debt and operating profit.
The current Financing Arrangement, together with the EUR 50 million domestic commercial paper programme signed in spring 2022 will create a robust financing set-up that will reinforce Kreate Group’s financial flexibility in the coming years.
