DGAP-News: VTG Aktiengesellschaft / Key word(s): Financing VTG Aktiengesellschaft: VTG concludes refinancing with considerably improved terms 12.01.2016 / 10:06 The issuer is solely responsible for the content of this announcement. --------------------------------------------------------------------------- VTG concludes refinancing with considerably improved terms - EUR 1.2 billion refinancing volume - Terms between 5 and 7 years - Group interest rate decreases significantly - Improved conditions lead to annual savings of EUR 10 million Hamburg, January 12, 2016. VTG Aktiengesellschaft (WKN: VTG999), one of Europe's leading wagon hire and rail logistics companies, has refinanced a large proportion of its existing bank loans. In this process, the company has concluded new financial agreements for approximately EUR 1.2 billion with an international banking consortium led by KfW IPEX-Bank and UniCredit. This equates to about two thirds of VTG's total financial liabilities. Due to the current low level of interest rates and improved creditworthiness, the Group's average interest rate has fallen significantly. This will lead to noticeable relief in the interest costs for the years ahead. This financing further includes the conclusion of a new credit and guarantee line, in an amount of some EUR 300 million, which increases VTG's flexibility for further growth-related investments. "The new financing structure allows us to benefit from the current low level of interest rates, while consolidating and standardizing the credit structures of both VTG and the acquired AAE Group," explained Mark Stevenson, member of the Executive Board responsible for Treasury, Financing and Taxes and added: "This represents an important step towards attaining the medium-term financial targets we have set for 2018." In the course of refinancing the EUR 1.2 billion, VTG worked with a consortium of twelve international banks. VTG has long-standing business relations with the two institutions which are managing the syndicate, namely KfW IPEX-Bank and UniCredit, whose structuring expertise allowed them to implement the complex financing process in cooperation with the other banks and investors. VTG's new financing arrangement comprises two principle elements, namely a credit line of EUR 500 million with a seven-year term and a further credit line of EUR 400 million with a term of up to five years, both lines financed by a single syndicate of banks. These credit lines replace the majority of the Group's previous financings. In addition, a credit line of EUR 300 million with a three-year term, also financed through the bank consortium, ensures VTG flexibility for future growth. Through its refinancing VTG is able to make annual savings of EUR 10 million. One-off extraordinary expenses amounting to EUR 7.0 million will be reflected in the consolidated financial statements for the 2015 financial year. "Acquiring AAE has not only enabled our fleet to expand considerably, but it has also substantially broadened our funding framework", said Dr. Heiko Fischer, CEO of VTG Aktiengesellschaft, commenting on the transaction. "The new financing agreement gives us a foundation for increasing profitability and, in turn, achieving our financial objectives", he added.
