Railpool says the total volume of the refinancing measures exceeds €800m.

Crédit Agricole Corporate and Investment Bank (CIB) acted as advisor for the refinancing, with KfW-Ipex bank acting as agent. The two banks are participating in the bank financing as Mandated Lead Arrangers, alongside ABN AMRO Bank, Bank of America Merrill Lynch, DVB Bank and ING Bank.

The private placement was implemented by Crédit Agricole CIB with Generali Global Infrastructure, Schroders and three other institutional investors.

Railpool continues to expand its traction portfolio and recently finalised orders for 20 Bombardier Traxx and 10 Siemens Vectron locomotives.
