Kinland expands and diversifies its debt stack by entering into new financing arrangements with Edmond de Rothschild
Oslo/Helsinki, 21 April 2023
Kinland AS (“Kinland”), supported by PATRIZIA Infrastructure, is pleased to announce the successful closing of new senior institutional debt facilities from Edmond de Rothschild’s BRIDGE debt platform. A five-year term loan facility was drawn on 18 April 2023 in connection with the acquisition of a Finnish social infrastructure portfolio of 28 properties from eQ Community Properties Fund announced on 15 December 2022, as well as the refinancing of certain other previously acquired assets. Further committed undrawn debt has also been made available to support Kinland’s continued growth ambitions.
“Through our BRIDGE debt financing platform, Edmond de Rothschild is pleased to have been provided the opportunity to support Kinland’s social infrastructure mandate, and look forward to working with management on their further growth objectives.” says Audrey Colin West, Managing Director and Head of Transport & Social Infrastructure, Real Assets and Structured Finance at Edmond de Rothschild Asset Management (UK) Limited.
“The establishment of new financing from Edmond de Rothschild, a leading European infrastructure lender, at competitive terms is a welcome addition to Kinland’s debt financing mix and flexibility, and is testament to our Nordic social infrastructure credit case in the current market environment. Together with the wider Kinland team, we look forward to building upon the trust and support shown by our new debt financier as part of Kinland’s future growth endeavours.” says Teodor Coucheron-Gautier Teigen, CFO of Kinland.
Kinland was advised by Rothschild & Co. (financial debt) and Deloitte (legal).
