LJUBLJANA (Slovenia), December 22 (SeeNews) – Slovenian home appliances manufacturer Gorenje [LJE:GRVG] said on Friday it will start, at the beginning of 2018, preparations for placing a new issue of commercial paper to accommodate its seasonal financing requirements.
Gorenje will launch pre-issue activities in the capital market, with the subscription and payment for new commercial paper planned to take place by the beginning of February 2018, the company said in a filing to the Ljubljana bourse.
The anticipated volume of the new issue shall be similar to this year's issue of 40 million euro ($47.4 million).
"The purpose of the commercial paper issue is to diversify the short-term financing sources, financing of operations with a pronounced seasonal dynamics, and optimization of financing costs," Gorenje noted.
