The Transaction was oversubscribed and upsized from the previous facility extended in February 2019. The new Facilities consist of a EUR 632.5 million secured and a EUR 317.5 million unsecured revolving credit facility with a 364-day tenor and evergreen extension options. The new Facilities are used for working capital and general corporate purposes. MET now has access to a total of EUR 1,024 million in syndicated short- and medium-term credit facilities mainly from European banks.
For the fifth consecutive time, MET has successfully demonstrated the ability to upsize the Transaction despite a challenging environment. MET is grateful for the support that the European banking community has shown to the Group once again and is pleased to welcome new banks to the Facilities.
