This facility will replace the former € 570 million multicurrency revolving credit facility, which was originally due for re-financing in 2016. Benefitting from current favourable market conditions, PostNL secured access to committed future financing capacity in line with its financing strategy at reduced financing costs and updated terms and conditions.
The facility can be used for general funding purposes.
