This amount includes the €80 million loan approved for Agrokor by Croatian banks in April. An additional €50 million is also foreseen for suppliers as a potential trade credit with refinancing.

Representatives of large and small suppliers, secured creditors and bond holders voted to approve, while representatives of unsecured creditors withheld their vote of approval for the loan.

According to Agrokor, the new financing is aimed at securing long-term stability for business operations, maintaining value for all company stakeholders, and decreasing systemic risks with the Croatian economy.

This new loan will be secured by bondholders headed by Knighthead Capital Management. A financing tranche in Croatia will be arranged by Zagrebačka Banka, under the condition that it receives approval from the bank’s committee.

Most of the new financing will be used to complete preparations for the upcoming season and continue the regular business operations of Agrokor member companies.
