Byggmax has signed a new funding agreement with a tenor of three years, which means that the agreement extends until March 2017. Accordingly, this means that Byggmax has chosen to extend its cooperation with Handelsbanken, with whom the company has a long-standing relationship. The funding agreement comprises a SEK 400 M overdraft facility and a revolving credit facility of SEK 270 M, with no amortization obligation. The new agreement means that Byggmax lowers its interest expenses by about 30% on a full-year basis, based on last years net debt-level.
