Promasidor Nigeria Limited (PNL) has secured a N5.6 billion facility from the Bank of Industry (BoI) to support its expansion programmes.

PNL Finance Director, Mr. Per Kristensen said the facility would be used for additional machinery, factory expansion and value chain development, which would create jobs for Nigerians and increase the company’s capacity to support the country’s economy.

A statement quoted Kristensen to have stated that repayment of the loan was structured over a seven-year tenor, including a 12-month moratorium.

He added that the facility was a vote of confidence on the company’s untainted financial integrity, high credit rating, and exceptional corporate governance practice.

“The near single digit interest loan is guaranteed by First City Monument Bank Limited. You cannot compare this with any other commercial loans in the country. What this means is that Promasidor has the needed funds to pursue its growth in machinery, backward integration, production plants and create more jobs.

“The loan comes with comfort because it is denominated in local currency. For the period of seven years, the only risk is the interest rate, which is minimal. We are going to repay in Naira and the process is very transparent. We are excited about the development. It will give us additional opportunity to contribute to the growth of the country’s economy.

The business is expanding and we need a lot of capital to support that. The injection of the BoI facility gives the management the needed stability and relief to continue to pursue the expansion plans. A lot of expansion activities are ongoing at the factory, and we will continue to see more of that in the next 24 months,” the statement added.

Head of Legal and Corporate Communications, Promasidor, Mr. Andrew Enahoro, was also quoted to have said the company and BoI had shared passion and interest in supporting job creation and the economic growth of the country.

He said: “BoI’s interest is to support business expansion, stimulate jobs and create social values. These are fundamental to BoI’s support for any organization. Promasidor, on its part, has plans to expand its different plants and develop other exciting products. These will create jobs. If we employ an additional 500 people as a result of the credit, it is just the beginning of the impact it will create.”
