According to a Euro2day article (in Greek), the Attica Group is in the process of concluding a 5-year bond loan from the domestic market within July. The goal is to raise funds from EUR 100 to 170 million. The 100 million of that loan will be used to repay existing bank loans (pp. Fortress’s loans were repaid at the end of last year) and therefore high-value pre-payments will be removed. Another EUR 25 million will be made available for investments to ship scrubbers in order to meet the new EU stricter standards. If additional funds are raised (up to EUR 45 million), they will be used for general business purposes.
