Nomad Foods Announces Closing of Term Loans

Feltham, England - Nomad Foods Limited (“Nomad Foods” or the “Company”) announces that it has closed on the issuance of both a USD 700 million term loan bearing interest at a rate per annum equal to the SOFR rate plus 3.75% and a EUR 130 million term loan bearing interest at a rate per annum equal to EURIBOR plus 3.5%, both due 2029 (collectively the “Term Loans”).

The net proceeds of the Term Loans were used to repay the Company's existing USD 960 million principal term loan due in 2024, and for transaction expenses and general corporate purposes. Concurrent to these transactions, the Company closed out its existing cross currency interest rate swaps associated with repaid loans and added new 5-year cross currency and interest rate swaps for the new Term Loans.

Samy Zekhout, Chief Financial Officer of Nomad Foods, stated, “We are pleased to have now closed our refinancing on market leading terms within our rating category, reflecting the defensiveness of our business model and strength of our cash flows. These transactions have materially extended our average debt maturities, while the associated hedging delivers certainty on our interest charge over the next five years. With financing secured until 2028/2029 and planned continued strong free cash flows in the years to come, we are well positioned to leverage our capital allocation to maximize shareholder value.”

The Term Loans will be guaranteed and secured on a senior basis by the Company and certain of its subsidiaries.
