LONDON — Gazprom Germania arranged a 500 million euro ($710 million) credit line to fund its business.
The five-year revolving facility pays interest of 130 basis points more than the euro interbank offered rate, according to data compiled by Bloomberg. A basis point is 0.01 percentage point. Lenders also received a commitment fee equivalent to 35 percent of the interest margin. Commerzbank and UniCredit led arrangers.
Gazprom founded Berlin-based Gazprom Germania in 1990 to market Russian natural gas to western Europe, according to its web site. About a third of the natural gas consumed in Germany originates from West Siberia.
