Dufry hires 13 to market Sfr650m of refinancing
Dufry, the Swiss travel retailer, has launched a new Sfr650m ($695.2m) multicurrency facility, hiring 13 banks to arrange the syndication of the loan. BBVA, Banco Santander, Bank of America Merrill Lynch, Crédit Agricole, Credit Suisse, Goldman Sachs, HSBC, ING, Morgan Stanley, RBI, Royal Bank of Scotland, UBS and UniCredit have been named as bookrunners and mandated lead arrangers on the new deal, which will be marketed to the company’s existing relationship banks.
The new five year facility will replace an outstanding $435m loan, which was initially agreed in August 2008 and later amended. It will be used for general corporate purposes.
Last September, Dufry saw a $1bn syndicated loan it used to back its takeover of assets in South America
