PARIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Regulatory News:
On July 2nd 2018, Rémy Cointreau S.A. (“Rémy Cointreau”) (Paris:RCO) signed a syndicated loan amounting to €100 million, funded by a pool of six banks: Natixis, Credit Agricole-CIB (LCL/CA-IDF), Société Générale (CdN), HSBC, CIC and BNP Paribas.
This new facility will mature in 5 years (with a possible extension of 2 years) and includes a margin grid between 35bps and 125bps, depending on the Group’s debt level.
