CECONOMY AG settles post-pandemic financing structure: Existing KfW syndicated loan agreement replaced by ESG-linked syndicated credit facilities

Düsseldorf, 30 July 2021 - CECONOMY AG ("CECONOMY") has settled its post-pandemic financing structure with the termination of its syndicated revolving loan agreement with the participation of KfW and implementation of its new ESG-linked syndicated revolving credit facilities. The €1.7 billion loan facility of the existing syndicated loan agreement with the participation of KfW was concluded in mid-May 2020 during the first wave of the COVID-19 pandemic and complemented CECONOMY's existing credit facilities of €980 million at that time. It purely served as a back-up line and was never drawn.

The company had already laid the foundation for its long-term post-pandemic financing structure in May of this year with the signing of new ESG-linked syndicated revolving credit facilities in the amount of €1.06 billion. The new facilities have a diverse maturity profile and are split into an initial five-year tranche with a volume of €707 million and an initial three-year tranche with a volume of €353 million. In addition, CECONOMY issued an inaugural €500 million 5-year senior unsecured bond in June of this year, thereby further enhancing its long-term financing structure.

Following the recent issuance of the 5-year senior unsecured bond, CECONOMY now concludes its post-pandemic financing structure with the implementation of the new ESG-linked syndicated revolving credit facilities. The new structure underpins CECONOMY's continued prudent financial policy, which still allows the company to cover liquidity needs even in extraordinary times.

IGEA Pharma N.V. Realignment to CBD extraction

The goal is to become the quality and cost leader in the field of CBD in Europe. To this end, a GMP pharma compliant plant is being built in Switzerland. The supercritical CO2 extraction process is to be used to achieve the highest standard of quality. The CBD market is growing strongly and with the focus on quality leadership and pure extraction, IGEA Pharma's new business model should be able to occupy an attractive niche market. With the proprietary supercritical CO2-extraction technology, other markets such as vanilla, rose or rosemary can be developed in the medium term. Based on our DCF model, we have determined a fair value of € 1.05 (CHF 1.13) per share and assign a BUY rating.
