Henkel signs new 800 million euros revolving credit facility

Henkel today signed a new 800 million euros revolving credit facility. The facility with a tenor of 5 years and two additional one-year extension options serves as a backup for Henkel’s Commercial Paper programs, securing flexible financing for the company. The existing 700 million euros 5-year revolving credit facility signed inMarch 2010 will remain in place. Due to Henkel’s excellent cash situation the company decided to reduce the total volume of its revolving credit facilities from 2.1 billion euros to 1.5 billion euros.

Henkel CFO Lothar Steinebach was delighted that the facility was significantly oversubscribed: “The success of the transaction shows once more Henkel’s strong standing in the international capital markets, even in a challenging environment”.

The credit facility was coordinated by Citigroup Global Markets Limited and Deutsche Bank AG. Banco Santander S.A., Bank of America Securities Limited, BNP Paribas S.A., HSBC Trinkaus & Burkhardt AG, J.P. Morgan Limited, The Royal Bank of Scotland plc, and UniCredit Bank AG acted as Bookrunners in the transaction.
