Tognum Secures Long-term Financing

Press Release
Friday, August 10, 2012

Tognum has recently concluded an agreement with a bank consortium for a revolving credit line of €300 million.

The credit line has a term of five years. In addition to Commerzbank as the coordinator, seven other banks are involved. Tognum will redeem the consortium financing that was agreed during the IPO in 2007 accordingly in the next few days.


In the last few months, Tognum also received loans totalling €200 million for research projects from the European Investment Bank (EIB). In addition, KfW IPEX-Bank will finance R&D activities amounting to €50 million. The contract was signed quite recently.


“Tognum was able to secure the currently favourable interest rate for a long-term basic financing agreement,” explains Dieter Royal, CFO of Tognum AG. “The company thus has solid financing and is well prepared for the future.”
