Telia Company signs a EUR 1,200 million sustainability linked revolving credit facility

Telia Company has signed a new dual tranche EUR 1,200 million Revolving Credit Facility with a group of twelve relationship banks. The Facility has a tenor of 5 years and includes two extension options of one year each, subject to approval of the lenders. This facility will replace the existing EUR 1,500 million credit facility dated September 30, 2016, ensuring full eligibility given its extended maturity under the rating agencies’ liquidity models.

Entering into this agreement reflects our commitment to constantly reinvent better for all our stakeholders.”
