MBWS refinances its senior debt with a new syndicated credit facility of €77.5m


MBWS (Euronext Paris : MBWS) has refinanced its senior debt of €62.5m (in place since May 2016) with a new syndicated credit facility of €77.5m, maturing in July 2022.    

The syndicated credit facility, which will be held at the corporate level of the MBWS Group, is comprised of:           a term loan in the amount of €45m, used to refinance the previous outstanding balance of the 2016 senior debt; and a revolving credit facility in the amount of €32.5m which will be used to finance the company's general operating needs and possible external growth.

The refinancing of the company's debt strengthens the Group's financial agility as the syndicated credit facility lengthens the maturity of long-term debt to 4.3 years, and provides a more flexible framework for some of the conditions, such as the bank covenants, in addition to reducing financial costs.  Moreover, this refinancing demonstrates the confidence the French banking community has in MBWS and the company's growth prospects.

This syndicated credit facility was subscribed by a syndicate of banks comprised of CIC Lyonnaise de Banque, Le Crédit Lyonnais, Natixis, Société Générale, and Crédit Agricole Ile de France.  The syndicate was advised by the law firm of Hogan Lovells.  For this transaction, MBWS was advised by Redbridge Debt & Treasury Advisory and by the law firm of De Pardieu Broca Maffei.
