SEIF: Signed a loan agreement for Euro 2,500,000 in order to finance the pursuit of the Company's industrial development project.
Rome, 11 June 2020 – Società Editoriale Il Fatto S.p.A. hereby enounces that today it has signed a loan agreement with Unicredit S.p.A. for a total amount of Euro 2,500,000 and aimed at supporting the Company's industrial development project.
The loan agreement provides for a repayment in 60 months with a 12-month grace period, with a variable rate, in line with the best market conditions. The loan is backed by a guarantee from Cassa Depositi e Prestiti for 90% of the amount. As usual in this type of transaction, the Company has also subscribed an interest rate cap under which it will periodically receive an amount of interest equal to the difference (if positive) between Euribor and the cap rate.
Luigi Calicchia, CFO of SEIF, commented: "The transaction with Unicredit S.p.A. should be considered as a bridge loan needed to support the current investment programme, which is already included in the company's business plan. Given the positive trends recorded in 2020 in terms of volumes and revenues, also due to the investments made in the last 18 months, it is considered important to continue implementing the development plan by providing the Company with adequate financial resources".
