The Sartorius Group, a leading international laboratory and biopharmaceutical equipment provider, took out a long-term syndicated loan of 400 million euros for the next five years. Yesterday, the company signed the loan agreement with an international bank syndicate led by BNP Paribas, Commerzbank and LBBW. This new agreement replaces the two previously separate credit contracts ahead of schedule.

Based on this transaction, Sartorius is consolidating credit lines for financing within the Group. Until now, one of the former credit lines taken out had been available only to the subgroup Sartorius Stedim Biotech. “The new credit agreement enables us to invest flexibly in our various business areas and provides leeway for taking further strategic measures,” commented Jörg Pfirrmann, CFO and member of the Executive Board of Sartorius. “We were able to conclude this agreement under highly attractive terms and conditions. On the one hand, such conditions are a consequence of the low interest environment and, on the other hand, they also reflect the confidence that banks have in the financial strength of and in the positive prospects for Sartorius and Sartorius Stedim Biotech.”
