Refinancing risks and liquidity

At December 31th 2018, the financial liabilities amounted to SEK 54,326m. After additions for net provisions for pensions, cash and cash equivalents, interest-bearing receivables, the net debt was SEK 54,404m.

Essity’s financing is partly secured through committed bank credit facilities. With these as protection against refinancing risks, Essity uses short-term borrowing under market programs.

Essity’s policy is that loan documentation should not contain clauses that entitle the lenders to terminate the loans or change coupon rates when changes occur in Essity’s financial key ratios or credit ratings. 

As per December 31th 2018, unutilized bank credit facilities amounted to SEK 20,544m. In addition, cash and cash equivalents amounted to SEK 3,008m.
