Dentons has advised a syndicate of four banks, consisting of Bank Pekao S.A., Ceska Sporitelna, a.s., PKO BP, and ING Bank Slaski on the financing of AmRest Group.

On October 1, 2018, the banks amended their 2017 facilities agreement, granting a new facility of up to EUR 190 million to AmRest Group for the financing of capital expenditure, M&A transactions, and general corporate purposes.

According the amended agreement, the banks will also provide up to PLN 580 million, EUR 250 million, and CZK 300 million of term loans to AmRest, as well as a revolving loan of up to PLN 450 million. The latter, Dentons reports, is to refinance the existing indebtedness and finance the growth of AmRest Group in various European countries including Romania, Poland, Czech Republic, France, Germany, Hungary, Russia, and Spain.

The Dentons team was led by Warsaw-based Partner Mateusz Toczyski and Bucharest-Based Managing Partner Perry Zizzi, Managing Counsel Magdalena Raducanu, Senior Associate Oana Ionascu, and Associate Cosmin Vasilescu.
