The new credit facility improves Embracer's financial capacity and aligns with the previously announced financing policy, while keeping the average interest rate at less than 1 percent. Embracer targets a strong balance sheet to maintain maximum strategic flexibility. The new credit facility, together with the potential issuance of up to approximately 39 million B shares under the exisiting authorization granted by the extra general meeting held on 16th November 2020, will enable Embracer to intensify the acquisitive part of Embracer's growth strategy.
"I am very pleased to have strengthened our strategic flexibility by this new credit facility, increasing our liquid funds to more than SEK 11.5 billion. We see a growing interest in Embracer from experienced and successful gaming entrepreneurs running companies with a strategic and cultural fit. Increased financial capacity enables us to pursue the most attractive inorganic growth opportunities to create a stronger Embracer Group with improved organic growth potential. Going forward our M&A processes will run separately from other corporate events, like quarterly reporting or general meetings. M&A transactions will be carried out on an ongoing basis. We are also pleased to further extend our relationship with Nordea, one of the leading banks in the Nordics" says Lars Wingefors, Co-founder and Group CEO of Embracer.
