Scout24: Further debt repayment at the end of March 2018

EUR 250 million loan repayment towards the existing bank loan Repayment partly financed by proceeds from the first Schuldschein loan

Berlin / Munich, 9 April 2018 - Scout24 AG ("Scout24" or "the Group"), the leading operator of digital marketplaces specializing in the real estate and automotive sectors in Germany and other selected European countries, has made a repayment in the amount of EUR 250 million towards its existing bank loan.  

The repayment was financed by the proceeds from the first Schuldschein loan in the amount of EUR 215 million and own liquid assets from excess cashflow in the amount of EUR 35 million. On the back of the loan repayment, the total outstanding debt of the Group was reduced by EUR 35 million. The debt on the existing bank loan now amounts to EUR 370 million after the repayment.  

At the beginning of 2018, Scout24 successfully placed its first Schuldschein loan in the amount of EUR 215 million. Due to the high demand, the placement was oversubscribed, and all tranches were placed at the lowest end of the respectively offered price range. With the first Schuldschein loan placement, Scout24 further diversifyied its financing structure and extended its maturities profile. At the same time, the company secured attractive long-term interest rates with tranches of 3 to 6 years of fixed interests.
