PARIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Regulatory News:
As part of the ongoing optimisation of its financial structure, Rémy Cointreau S.A. (hereinafter “Rémy Cointreau”) (Paris:RCO) is today announcing that it has taken out an €80 million loan with Crédit Agricole d’Ile-de-France.
The loan bears interest at a fixed rate of 0.60% per annum and offers a maturity of seven years, in keeping with the Group’s desire to back its long-dated assets with appropriate financial resources. Rémy Cointreau is thus extending the maturity of its debt and continuing to gradually reduce its average cost of funding.
This new financing, taken out at favourable terms, reflects the quality and financial strength of Rémy Cointreau (rated Baa3 by Moody’s). It enables the Group to strengthen its balance sheet structure by providing it with greater flexibility in implementing its long-term growth strategy.
