Rheinmetall AG renews €500 million revolving credit facility

Rheinmetall AG has replaced its existing €500 million revolving credit facility with a new syndicated loan, substantially extending the maturity profile of Group funding. The new syndicated loan, also amounting to €500 million, has a term of five years, plus two one-year extension options ("5+1+1"). It can be used for general corporate financing purposes, while simultaneously serving as a back-up facility for Rheinmetall AG’s existing €500 million commercial paper programme.

Significantly oversubscribed, the transaction was arranged by Commerzbank Aktiengesellschaft, Crédit Agricole Corporate and Investment Bank, and UniCredit Bank AG. In addition to the three coordinating banks, other key relationship banks of Rheinmetall were invited to take part in the new syndicated loan. Owing to the high oversubscription, the allocation to participating banks was adjusted accordingly.

This highly successful transaction reinforces Rheinmetall’s financial profile on attractive terms, while strengthening its longstanding business ties to the Group’s key relationship banks.
