Malaysia: Lafarge's LMCB secures loan agreement
Published: 21 August 2013


Lafarge Malaysia Cement Bhd (LMCB) has converted the MYR580.69m (USS$225m) fixed rate notes due 2013 into an inter-company term loan with M-Cement Sdn Bhd.

The company executed a loan agreement with M-Cement to convert the notes into a five-year inter-company term loan. M-Cement is the sole note holder. The conversion of the notes into an inter-company loan does not have any impact on the consolidated net debt position of the Lafarge Malaysia Group.

Following the latest development, Lafarge Malaysia said the fiscal agency agreement signed on 18 August 2003 with Standard Chartered Bank, Singapore Branch had been terminated and the notes were cancelled on 19 August.
