NSG - Revolving Credit Facility

Today, Norske Skog has signed a 5-year revolving credit facility of USD 500 million.  The deal has been entered with a syndicate of top-tier Nordic and International banks. The new credit facility will constitute part of Norske Skog's liquidity reserves, and replaces the existing undrawn USD 450 million transaction originally signed Dec 10, 1998.
Norske Skog has obtained competitive terms. The credit facility was arranged by Citigroup, Danske Bank, and HSBC.
