Liquidity reserve

CECONOMY AG possesses comfortable liquidity reserves consisting of various syndicated revolving credit facilities, which complement the reserves held in cash and other liquid assets. In order to strengthen its liquidity reserves, CECONOMY AG has increased the letter one by €1.7 billion to a new overall volume of €2.7 billion. The additional volume is provided by the state-owned bank KfW (Kreditanstalt für Wiederaufbau) and a consortium of CECONOMY’s partner banks as part of the government’s COVID-19 programme in order to safeguarded access to substantial back-up lines for potentially longer lock-downs and a possible second wave in view of the worldwide spread of the COVID-19 pandemic.
