UPPSALA, Sweden , July 9, 2019 /PRNewswire/ --Orexo AB (publ.) has resolved to prepay SEK 32.5 million, corresponding to 10 percent, of the unsecured corporate bond loan of in total SEK 325 million, which was issued by the company in November 2017 and which carries a floating interest rate of STIBOR 3m +4.50 percent.
The prepayment is made, in accordance with the terms and conditions of the corporate bond loan, at an amount corresponding to 102 percent of the nominal amount of the loan, together with accrued but unpaid interest.

"Orexo continues to strengthen the cash position and following the strong first quarter, we decided to take the first possible opportunity to repay a part of the outstanding corporate bond according to the terms. In addition to a saving on future interest payments, the repayment will decrease our exposure to a potentially stronger SEK, as Orexo's revenue and cash are predominately in US dollars," said Nikolaj Sørensen, President and CEO of Orexo AB.
