Amendments to Eltel's financing agreement

Eltel has agreed with its banks on certain amendments to its existing financial agreement that matures in Q1 2021. The new amendments include financial covenants and a plan to reduce net debt during the term.

The covenant revisions relate to minimum adjusted EBITDA to be applied until the end of the transformation period (Q2 2020) and maximum net debt of EUR 120 million to be applied as from the end of Q4 2019. As from the end of Q2 2020 the original net debt/EBITDA ratio and adjusted EBITDA/net finance charges ratio are applied.

In consideration for the facilitated amended loan agreement, Eltel has agreed to secure its debt obligations towards the banks by share and intragroup loan pledges and floating charges over certain assets of the Group, all on customary terms and conditions.
