Paris, 22 March 2021

Casino Group announces the launch of a refinancing to extend the maturity of its debt and to reduce its costs.

The refinancing includes (i) a new Term Loan B of maturity August 2025 of a targeted size of €800 million and (ii) the potential launch of a new €425 million senior unsecured debt instrument of maturity April 2027.

The funds will be used to fully redeem the current €1.225 billion Term Loan B which matures in 2024. The refinancing is expected to almost halve the 2024 payments, and to extend the debt maturity profile while reducing its costs.

The completion of the transactions is expected in the coming weeks.
