Marseilles, 7 March 2014. The Avenir Telecom Group, a leading designer and
distributor of accessories and connected devices, announced that it has reached
an agreement with its financial partners with a view to adjusting its financing
structure to its new stakes.
The agreement sets down the new particulars for the amortisation of the current
loans, with a two-year grace period in repayments on medium-term loans, extends
the outstanding amount on the short-term loans that the company has for two
years and releases the halfyear bank covenants for 24 months.
The success in renegotiating its bank loans allows the Avenir Telecom Group to
continue its activity in conditions that are better suited to the changes in
its economic model and to have the financial means required for its operating
projects on repositioning in the promising lowcost mobile, accessory, connected
device and electronic cigarette markets.
All of these new product ranges should contribute in substantially changing the
product mix, the level of profitability and the growth profile of the Avenir
Telecom Group in the upcoming years.
