“During the quarter, we have successfully refinanced our 2024 bond maturity, and I am pleased to see that we now have no further credit maturities until June 2026. This gives us security in a turbulent financial market. Our plan is to use the available proceeds from the refinancing to invest in highly accretive portfolios going forward. Furthermore, I am satisfied to see continued growth on a range of key financial metrics, such as gross revenue and cash EBITDA,” commented Johnny Tsolis, CEO of Axactor.
