HeidelbergCement improves credit terms

HeidelbergCement has agreed with its core banks better terms for its EUR 3 billion syndicated credit facility concluded in April 2010. The amendment agreement, effective immediately, includes a reduction in credit margins of up to 100 basis points, depending on the ratio of net debt to EBITDA. The favourable credit terms reflect the recent positive development of the performance of HeidelbergCement. The agreement is another successful step in the company’s cost reduction program.
