Press release
Boulogne-Billancourt, 3 April 2018



Completion of Antalis Group refinancing

Confirmation of full-year 2017 results forecast

On 29 March 2018, Antalis signed an agreement in principle with its lenders setting out the terms and conditions for financing its syndicated credit facility for an amount of €285 million and its maturity has been extended through 31 December 2021. Details of the exact terms and conditions will be disclosed along with the Group's full-year results and the legal formalities should be completed during Q2 2018.

On the same date, Antalis also signed an agreement in principle for refinancing its €215 million factoring contract whose maturity has been aligned with that of the credit facility.

Refinancing of the Group's debt is an important milestone in its medium-term strategic development, particularly in the growing, high-potential Packaging and Visual Communication sectors.

Antalis has also confirmed its full-year 2017 results forecast issued at the time of the IPO. At constant perimeter and exchange rates, Antalis should record a low single-digit decrease in its consolidated full-year sales when compared with FY 2016 and EBITDA margin should come in at between 3.4% and 3.8%.

Full-year 2017 results will be published on 10 April 2018 before trading.
