Saipem completes the prepayment of the €387 million loan guaranteed by SACE

Milan (Italy), March 28, 2024 – Saipem announces that today it has completed the prepayment of the €387 million loan that was signed in February 2023 and communicated to the market on February 13, 2023 and June 21, 2023, with a pool of Italian and international banks, 70% of which was guaranteed by SACE under the "SupportItalia" program.  A first partial prepayment of €150 million had already been made in December 2023, and today the prepayment of the remaining outstanding amount of €237 million was completed. The loan agreement envisaged a pre-amortization period of 2 years, with repayment in 12 quarterly instalments starting on March 31, 2025, and final maturity on December 31, 2027.

The prepayments were made by using available cash. The transaction, therefore, results in a reduction of Saipem Group's gross debt, as well as a reduction in the average cost of debt.

The decision reflects Saipem Group's liquidity position and is in line with the guidance provided in the context of the 2024-2027 Strategic Plan, approved by Saipem’s Board of Directors on February 28, 2024 and presented to the market on February 29, 2024.
