Cicor Obtains New Revolving Loan Facility

Reading time ( words)

Cicor, a leading international technology company in the fields of printed circuit boards and hybrid circuits, printed electronics, microelectronics as well as EMS (electronic manufacturing services) based in Boudry (Switzerland), signed a credit agreement on 18 June 2021 for a new revolving credit facility of CHF 80 million and for an additional optional acquisition credit facility of CHF 75 million. 

Successful Renegotiation of Syndicated Loan 

Cicor is replacing the existing syndicated loan of CHF 75 million due on 30 June 2022, early and at attractive conditions and is increasing it to CHF 80 million. 

The new syndicated loan has a term of four years with two one-year extension options. The renewal of the revolving credit facility provides financing and liquidity security and increases Cicor's overall strategic flexibility.

The syndicated loan was structured as a club deal. The banking syndicate comprises a core banking group consisting of Commerzbank AG as mandated arranger and agent, HSBC Trinkaus & Burkhardt AG, Landesbank Baden-Württemberg, Migros Bank AG and Zürcher Kantonalbank. 

Additional Optional Acquisition Credit Facility

The new credit agreement also contains an optional acquisition credit line in the amount of CHF 75 million, which, in the event of a future acquisition, is to be used to finance the purchase price and the working capital of the company to be acquired.

I’m sure it’s just me being hyperaware, but I can’t shake it: Mars is where it’s at right now. Is it just me, or do you get the same feeling from the news? There are the Mars rovers—three generations of them still rolling, now—and a drone helicopter winding up for a maiden flight any day now. But that’s not all. There’s SpaceX’s StarShip, rapid-prototyping its way into a manned flight to Mars. And NASA’s whole “return to the Moon” project is simply a shakedown for the U.S. government contractors’ Mars flight hardware, too.

With the wrap-up of IPC APEX EXPO 2021, it was extremely gratifying to note the emphasis placed on getting young people involved to combat the “graying out” knowledge losses facing our industry. A part of that emphasis was reflected in the award ceremony on Tuesday, March 9, which featured some people you may have seen mentioned in my “Better to Light a Candle” columns.
