Global Label Manufacturing and Technology Company, Beontag, Secures Loan of €120 Million from Syndicate led by Deutsche Bank

Share

Today, Beontag – one of the world’s largest manufacturers of self-adhesives and smart tags (such as digital labels, and labeling technology solutions like RFID and NFC) – announced that Tags Lux Sarl., a wholly owned subsidiary of the Company, has secured and closed a binding agreement for a syndicated loan of €120 million with global banks and Deutsche Bank as sole lead arranger.

Beontag, the second largest provider of digital RFID and NFC solutions for some of the world’s biggest fashion and consumer brands, is expected to achieve €550 Million in revenue for 2022, with international and national acquisitions, integrations and expansion contributing to significant top-line growth from pro forma actualized revenues of more than €400 Million in 2021. This is the first significant, international capital raise by the Brazilian-founded company – with operations now spanning more than 15 international facilities and a presence in over 40 countries.

Terms of Syndicated Facility

  • The syndicated loan shall mature within 60 months from closing date with 18 months grace period, including a possibility of prepayment from the 18th month.
  • Beontag intends to use the net proceeds from the issuance to primarily refinance its existing debt throughout the group. Any excess proceeds will be used to support organic strategic initiatives across multiple geographies and enhance liquidity.
  • The transaction is expected to be leverage-neutral after closing.
  • The loan shall carry an interest rate of EURIBOR plus 4.5% per annum and contains incentivised terms that are linked to Beontag 2030 ESG strategy, which is aligned to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Every year, Beontag will seek third-party verification to certify and report upon progress against the ESG-related terms agreed.

Global Expansion, Borderless Solutions

Beontag’s Chief Financial Officer, Pedro Christ, commented: “Investment is a key aspect of our journey to become a truly borderless, end-to-end solutions provider of self-adhesive label stock and IoT solutions. And we believe this syndicated capital raise is a good example of the confidence of international investors in Beontag’s global strategy, as well as our current operational fundamentals.

For 2023, and beyond, we are excited to continue to innovate and expand our solutions to meet our clients’ demands for future-focused support, all while taking care to improve our ESG credentials and reduce the impact of our sector on the planet.”

The Managing Director of Global Emerging Markets from Deutsche Bank, Ricardo Cunha, added: “We are delighted to partner with Beontag for this transaction. This commitment, with and added ESG incentive, reflects our confidence in both the strength and sustainable intention of their innovative plans for the sector.

We look forward to keep supporting Beontag as the company expands into different markets and geographies.”

Major Landowner Federations to Support AMR Against Nordic Mining ASA (NOM) in the Norwegian Supreme Court27.1.2023 12:59:00 EET | Press release

Key landowner federations declare 3rd party intervention in support of Arctic Mineral Resources’ appeal to the Supreme Court in the case against Nordic Rutile AS (NRU), a wholly owned subsidiary of Nordic Mining ASA (NOM). Arnold Rørholt, lawyer and AMR’s Chairman, welcomes the 3rd party intervention in favour of AMR: “The intervention will ensure that the Supreme Court, as opposed to the courts of lower instance, appreciates the principal nature of the case and the Constitutional issues underpinning it, and interprets the Mineral Act in light of these – to the favour of AMR.” “The Western part of the Engebø garnet and rutile province contains around half of the proven reserves in the Engebø deposit, as well as a majority of inferred resources and will support a highly profitable 50 years plus fully underground mining project without a need for deposits on land or in the sea” continues Rørholt. Arctic Mineral Resources (AMR) and the federations argue that the two mineral categories – o

Ipsen Receives CHMP Negative Opinion for Palovarotene as a Treatment for Fibrodysplasia Ossificans Progressiva in E.U.27.1.2023 09:00:00 EET | Press release

Regulatory News: Ipsen (Euronext: IPN; ADR: IPSEY) announced today that the Committee for Medicinal Products for Human Use (CHMP) of the European Medicines Agency (EMA) has recommended not to grant marketing authorization for investigational palovarotene as a treatment for the ultra-rare bone disease, fibrodysplasia ossificans progressiva (FOP). In the E.U. there are currently only symptomatic treatments for FOP, which do not reduce the formation of extra-skeletal bone in patients with the condition. Ipsen will be requesting a re-examination of the CHMP opinion, based on scientific data available from the existing palovarotene clinical trial program. FOP causes permanent and continuous new bone formation in soft and connective tissues, like muscles, tendons and ligaments, a process known as heterotopic ossification (HO).1 Once formed, it is irreversible.1 The average age of diagnosis is 5 years old2 and ultimately FOP shortens the median life expectancy to 56 years as untimely death is
