Embracer Group AB (”Embracer”) has entered into agreements for its two main credit- and loan facilities, with a nominal value of around SEK 17 billion, extending the maturity until February and May 2025, respectively. The amendment agreements include scheduled quarterly minimum prepayments, that amount to SEK 2.6 billion on an accumulated basis up until January 2025, starting in Q1 FY 24/25. The currently expected interest rate on the group’s total debt, based on a floating rate, is around 6.15%.

“We are pleased to further strengthen Embracer’s financial flexibility, which also demonstrates the confidence that our main banks and financial institutions have in our financial profile and strategy. As part of the ongoing restructuring program, we have the ambition to reduce debt, both on a gross and net debt level. This credit and loan extension is aligned with our own agenda and puts us in a stronger position as we transition from heavy-investment mode to a highly cash-flow generative business”, says Lars Wingefors, co-founder and Group CEO of Embracer.
