Quartiers Properties obtains a loan of EUR 17 million and secures its cash position
Quartiers Properties AB (publ) (”Quartiers Properties” or the ”Company”) has entered into a loan agreement with the lenders DESALKIV Portfolios, L.L.C. and Alantra under which the Company obtains a loan of a total of EUR 17 million (the ”Loan”).
The Loan secures necessary working capital which will enable the Company to continue generate growth and proceed to develop its long term business strategy by gradually reallocating capital from already developed projects, such as Hacienda del Señorio de Cifuentes, to new projects that can be developed and where added value can be created.
Part of the Loan will be used to refinance existing debts within the group with similar or higher interests as the Loan.
The interest of the Loan is 12.5% and the term of the Loan is 48 months, but Quartiers can freely refinance the loan after 24 months without additional charges. According to the terms of the Loan, no dividends may be paid on the Company’s shares (neither ordinary shares nor preference shares) during the term of the Loan.
The Loan, arranged by Alantra and provided by Alantra and DESALKIV Portfolios, L.L.C. as co-lenders, is secured by, among other things, pledge over shares of some group companies and pledge over the properties CFS Residential and Boho Club.
