Agfa has closed a new five year multi-currency revolving creditfacility of € 445m . The new facility will run until May 31, 2016. Added to the loan of € 130m Agfa received from the European Investment Bank at the end of 2010, this new revolving credit facility will replace the existing revolving credit facility that expires in July 2012. This new revolving credit facility will be used for general corporate purposes. The new revolving credit facility was arranged and underwritten by a syndicate of six banks.
No impact on our model. As a reminder, after the 1Q release we have returned from Hold to Accumulate with a € 3.80 target. Agfa’s 1Q results showed that the company coped better with the high silver prices than we had feared, prompting us to up our FY profit forecasts. At our target price, Agfa would be trading at 6.8x EV/REBITDA11E and 5.4x EV/REBITDA12E, which we see as a fair valuation.
[ CURRENT PRICE € 3.05 ; RATING (UNCHANGED): ACCUMULATE ; TARGET PRICE € 3.80 ]
