Metso has signed two revolving credit facilities for future Metso Outotec and future Neles

Metso Corporation, insider information, on September 30, 2019 at 7:30 p.m. EEST

Metso Corporation has signed two revolving credit facilities as part of the planned Metso Outotec transaction and creation of Neles.

EUR 600 million revolving credit facility
The new EUR 600 million multi-currency revolving credit facility agreement was signed with a syndicate of 10 banks. This new facility is part of the preparations for the planned Metso Outotec transaction while it also refinances Metso’s existing EUR 500 million revolving credit facility. The facility will transfer to Metso Outotec at the completion of the contemplated combination of Outotec and the Metso Minerals Business.

The new facility is to be used for the general corporate purposes of the Metso Group and later, following the transfer to Metso Outotec, for general corporate purposes of the combined company. The facility has a tenor of five years, with two one-year extension options, dependent on the approval of the lenders.

Nordea acted as Coordinating Bookrunner and Mandated Lead Arranger. The other Mandated Lead Arrangers were BBVA, BNP Paribas, Citi, Commerzbank AG, HSBC, OP Corporate Bank plc, Scotiabank (Ireland) Designated Activity Company, SEB and Standard Chartered Bank.

EUR 200 million revolving credit facility
In addition to the above, Metso Corporation has signed a new EUR 200 million multi-currency revolving credit facility agreement for future Neles Corporation with a syndicate of four banks. The new facility will be used for general corporate purposes of the Neles Group and will become available at the completion of the contemplated partial demerger of Metso Corporation. The facility has a tenor of three years, with two one-year extension options dependent on the approval of the lenders.

Nordea acted as Coordinating Bookrunner and Mandated Lead Arranger. The other Mandated Lead Arrangers were BNP Paribas, OP Corporate Bank plc, and SEB.

The planned transaction in brief

On July 4, 2019, Metso announced that its Board of Directors has approved a plan to combine Metso Minerals Business and Outotec to create Metso Outotec. As a result, the Flow Control business will become the continuing business of the currently listed Metso, which will be subsequently renamed Neles, an independent flow control equipment and services company. The transaction will be executed through a partial demerger of Metso in which all assets and liabilities of Metso that relate to, or primarily serve, the Metso Minerals Business will transfer without liquidation of Metso to Outotec.

Telenor: The Covid-19 digitalisation wave makes its mark on 2021 tech trends22.1.2021 09:00:00 CETPress release

Telenor: The Covid-19 digitalisation wave makes its mark on 2021 tech trends (Fornebu, 22 January 2021) Digitalisation efforts in every corner of society will accelerate in the wake of Covid-19, predicts Telenor Research. From new technology to combat loneliness, to remote education that’s here to stay, compounded by password panic induced by rising security concerns - these are some of the trends that will shape 2021. The year 2020 will go down in history as not only one of the most challenging of the century, but also as one of the most transformative. Covid-19 has forced the global population to urgently adapt to a new way of life. A life lived much more digitally. “The pandemic has triggered us and nearly every industry around the globe to adapt at a rate once thought impossible. The past year has proved that digitalisation will be key to tackling major societal issues and to facilitate new ways of working and living in 2021,” says Bjørn Taale Sandberg, Head of Telenor Research.

GrandVision reports comparable revenue growth of 0.8% in 4Q2022.1.2021 07:00:00 CETPress release

Schiphol, the Netherlands – 22 January 2021. GrandVision NV (EURONEXT: GVNV) publishes its preliminary and unaudited 4Q and FY20 revenue and comparable growth update. Fourth Quarter and Full Year Development Following a strong revenue recovery in the third quarter, GrandVision entered the fourth quarter with good momentum. The impact of the COVID-19 second wave subsequently built up through the quarter and slowed our progress resulting in 4Q revenue growth of 1.1% at constant exchange rates. Organic and comparable revenue growth for the quarter were 0.7% and 0.8% respectively. In the fourth quarter, we continued the strong EBITA momentum from the previous months. However, the increased restrictions in more and more countries due to the second wave in November and December resulted in a deceleration in the EBITA growth compared with the previous quarter. In the fourth quarter profit growth exceeded revenue growth. Revenue at constant exchange rates declined by 12.2% for the full year wi
