Credit Facilities

Overview

Uniper's credit facilities currently consist mainly of a syndicated loan agreement with its group of core banks established in June 2016 which was early refinanced in September 2018. The new syndicated credit facility was signed in an amount of EUR 1.8bn securing Uniper’s backup liquidity reserve until the year 2025. The facility originally had a tenor of five years plus two options to extend the maturity by one year each. Furthermore, the facility amount may be increased by EUR 0.5bn at the discretion of the banks until maturity.

In addition, Uniper established guarantee facilities with banks, for e.g. letters of credit and sureties, in order to meet specific requirements in the operative business
