Government guarantee programme for companies extended until 30 September 2021
Government guarantee programme for companies extended until 30 September 2021
The Swedish Government has decided to extend the Government guarantee programme for companies (Företagsakuten) ending 30 June, to 30 September 2021. The guarantee programme for companies is a credit guarantee scheme introduced in the spring of 2020 to mitigate the damage to the economy from the coronavirus pandemic.
The guarantee programme entails that the Swedish National Debt Office can provide credit guarantees for loans granted to companies by participating banks and credit institutions. The programme caters primarily to small and medium-sized enterprises in Sweden that have been adversely affected financially by the pandemic but are otherwise viable.
“The majority of the guarantees were issued during the spring of 2020 when uncertainty about the pandemic's impact on the economy was at its peak. Although current demand for the state guarantees is limited, an extension of the Government guarantee programme for companies is a good measure because the pandemic is not over and the economy has not yet returned to normal,” says Magnus Rystedt, Head of Guarantee and Financing at the Debt Office.
Statistics show that mainly smaller loans have been issued within the framework of the Government guarantee programme for companies. On 30 May 2021, lending under the programme amounted to SEK 2.6 billion across 754 loans.
With the extension, companies can now apply for loans under the guarantee programme until 30 September 2021 by contacting their lender/bank. The state guarantee framework for 2021 amounts to SEK 50 billion. Since the central government guarantees up to 70 per cent of the loan amount, guaranteed loans under the programme if fully utilised could total just over SEK 71 billion.

OSLO, Norway (2 August 2021) - TGS, a global provider of energy data and intelligence, today announced a new Ocean Bottom Node (OBN) seismic survey on the Norwegian Continental Shelf (NCS). The 437 square kilometer survey will be acquired in the NOAKA area, between Oseberg and Alvheim in the Norwegian North Sea, containing both held and open acreage.

TGS expects to emulate the recent success of the TGS-AGS Utsira OBN project in the North Sea (the first large-scale, densely sampled OBN survey for exploration) and will apply the learnings from TGS’ ongoing reprocessing of Utsira, including the extraction and use of ultra-long offset signal for FWI-based model building.

Yara continues its transformation with divestment of Salitre phosphate mining project in Brazil1.8.2021 21:00:00 CEST | Press release
Oslo, 1 August 2021: Yara has signed a Share Purchase Agreement with EuroChem to sell its Salitre phosphate mining project for a cash consideration of USD 410 million.

Salitre remains an attractive project, but as previously communicated the project progress has been impacted by Covid 19, and significant construction time and capital expenditure remains to reach completion. The Salitre divestment therefore supports Yara’s transformation by reallocating capital and risk appetite in the coming years towards Yara’s strategic focus areas. “This transaction allows us to further sharpen our strategic focus, based on our strong competitive edges. Yara Brazil will continue to play an essential role in this growth agenda, and this transaction enables that growth to be driven with a sharper downstream focus,” said Svein Tore Holsether, President and Chief Executive Officer o
