Loan Programs and Facilities

Investor’s loan financing is primarily managed through short-term and long-term loan programs in the Swedish and European capital markets.

Investor has a European Medium Term Note Program (EMTN), which is an uncommitted loan program intended for long-term financing. This program is for EUR 5 bn. For short-term financing Investor has an uncommitted Swedish and an uncommitted European Commercial Paper program (CP/ECP) for SEK 10 bn. and USD 1.5 bn., respectively. Investor also has a committed syndicated bank loan facility of SEK 10 bn. until January 2022 with the option to be prolonged one year plus one. This facility can be used for financing and as a liquidity reserve. This facility was unutilized at year-end. In contrast to an uncommitted credit facility, a committed loan program is a formalized commitment from the credit grantor. There are no financial covenants to any of Investor AB's loan contracts, meaning that Investor does not have to meet special requirements with regard to key financial ratios for the loans it has obtained.
