The construction company Strabag SE today announced that it has arranged a revolving syndicated cash credit line in the amount of 400 mn euros with a consortium of banks. With a term of five years, the credit line represents a long-term loan commitment with which Strabag will be able to maintain its comfortable liquidity position.
The syndicated cash credit line partially replaces already existing short-term bilateral credit lines, provides an overall improvement of the liquidity reserves and in particular can be used to balance out the cash infusions as required over the course of the year. “The positive experience with the 2010 syndicated surety loan spoke in favour of the syndication also of the cash credit line”, says Hans Peter Haselsteiner, CEO of Strabag.
The bank consortium consists of Bayern LB, Commerzbank Aktiengesellschaft, Crédit Agricole Corporate and Investment Bank, Deutsche Bank AG, Deutsche Postbank International S.A., Landesbank Baden-Württemberg, Raiffeisen Bank International AG, SEB AG and UniCredit Group – with Raiffeisen Bank International AG and UniCredit Bank Austria AG as agents.
