ITAB Shop Concept AB (ITAB)(STO:ITABB), a provider of complete interiors solutions for chain stores, supermarkets and specialty shops, announced on Thursday that it has renegotiated terms of its EUR200,000,000 credit facility with Nordea Bank Abp and its approximately EUR28,000,000 loan agreement with Svensk Exportkredit.
Under the Nordea facility, the parties have now agreed to realign the debt structure into a long-term facility of EUR100,000,000 and short-term facility of EUR75,000,000. The total credit facility will hereafter be EUR175,000,000. The available credit for ITAB under the facility from Svensk Exportkredit remains unchanged.
ITAB will be subject to interim financial covenants under both the Nordea and the Svensk Exportkredit facilities. According to ITAB, these interim financial covenants are adapted to support the company in the current market environment impacted by COVID-19. The facilities will be used for running business operations.
Also, as a part of the total refinancing solution, ITAB's board of directors has agreed on the terms for short-term shareholders' loans with Pomona-gruppen AB (controlled by board member Fredrik Rapp), VIEM Invest AB (controlled by board member Anna Benjamin) and Ovre Kullen AB (controlled by board member Petter Fagersten).
In total, the loans amount to SEK140,000,000 and will be used for repayment of the outstanding convertible loan. The execution of these shareholders' loans is
subject to approval by a general meeting as these transactions constitute
closely-related parties transactions under Chapter 16 a of the Swedish Companies Act.
