MND Group (Euronext Growth - FR0011584549 - ALMND) has entered into an agreement with its long-standing bank partners to renew its short and medium-term credit lines.
To mitigate the strong seasonal trends that impact its industry and business, the MND Group uses short-term credit lines to finance working capital during peak business periods.
Accordingly, the Group is delighted to announce the renewal of these lines of credit with its long-standing bank partners.
The agreement signed with these banks provides for (i) the renewal of the Group's short-term credit lines (overdraft facilities, receivables assignment under the “Dailly” Act, etc.) until 31 October 2019 and (ii) a 12-month extension to its medium-term financing arrangements and real estate finance leases.
Meanwhile, MND is also working on restructuring and extending its medium and long-term debt for the purposes of the 2020 strategic plan and the following period. MND will issue a press release informing the market of the progress of these negotiations.
Xavier Gallot-Lavallée, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of MND Group, made the following comments:
“The renewal of our short-term credit lines by our long-standing bank partners reflects their confidence in our continued growth, while the first half of 2018/2019 demonstrated the Group's strong sales momentum with revenues up 25%, an improvement over the last two years. These financing arrangements will allow us to continue our sustained growth over the coming months, backed by a healthy order backlog of €174.4 million at 30 September 2018, and to take a big step towards achieving our revenue target of €150 million by 2020.”
