FREY improves the terms of its syndicated credit facility
FREY S.A. (ISIN: FR0010588079 - FREY), a property investment company (French
REIT) specialising in open-air shopping centres, signed with its banking
partners, an extension of the existing syndicated credit facility from EUR300m
to EUR350m. Meanwhile, the Group improves the financial conditions of this
credit facility and extends its maturity by one year to September 2024 (the
Group still has an option to extend the facility by one year).
For the record, the Group signed in June 2017 a EUR300m syndicated loan, with
an initial duration of five years, with two optional one-year extensions, on
favourable financial terms to refinance part of its debt and to finance its
expansion programme. In February 2018, FREY obtained unanimous agreement from
its banking pool for the first one-year extension.
This credit bears interest at the 3-month Euribor plus a margin based on a
pricing grid and is subject to a certain number of usual financial covenants
(LTV ratio, ICR ratio, secured debt ratio).
BNP Paribas, CA CIB and LCL acted as co-arrangers, and also as lenders
alongside Banque Postale, Crédit Foncier, CIC-Est, Crédit Agricole Ile-de
France and BECM.
FREY was advised by the law firm De Pardieu Brocas Maffei and the lenders by
Gide Loyrette Nouel AARPI.
