YIT has concluded EUR 80 million of refinancing to improve the maturity profile

YIT has concluded EUR 80 million of refinancing to improve the maturity profile. The loans consist of a EUR 50 million pension loan maturing in August 2019 and a EUR 30 million term loan maturing in August 2017. The average interest of the new loans is below the average interest of YIT’s debt portfolio in the end of June 2014.

YIT’s net interest-bearing debt, in the end of June 2014, was EUR 860 million (IFRS), and EUR 66 million of the long-term loans mature in the second half of 2014. In addition to refinancing, reducing gearing and the level of interest bearing net debt by operative actions such as the ongoing capital release program is a top priority for the company.
