Superdry PLC

(“Superdry” or the “Company”)



Secondary lending facility of up to £25m


Superdry is pleased to announce that it has agreed a secondary lending facility (the “Facility”) of up to £25m with Hilco Capital Limited (“Hilco”)1, providing the Company with improved liquidity to help accelerate the implementation of the turnaround plan and cost reduction programme.


This agreement comes in addition to the Company’s existing asset backed lending facility with Bantry Bay Capital Limited (“Bantry Bay”) and will help mitigate the headroom cap on this outstanding credit agreement. The facility with Hilco is for a twelve-month term with the option to extend and is at an interest rate of 10.5% plus the Bank of England base rate on the drawn element. It is covenant-light, with borrowing availability based upon an asset base that is consistent with our current agreement with Bantry Bay. Upon signing, the Company must also meet a number of mutually agreed conditions subsequent to satisfy the terms of the agreement.
