Freshfields advises Schön Klinik on €350m Term Loan B Financing

Global law firm Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer (‘Freshfields’) has advised Schön Klinik SE (‘Schön Klinik’) on a €350 million Term Loan B financing. J.P. Morgan SE acted as Sole Physical Bookrunner for the financing.

Schön Klinik is one of the leading hospital groups in Germany. Through the Term Loan B financing, Schön Klinik aims to refinance existing debt together with creating operational flexibility for future investments.

"We are very pleased that our debut issue on the Term Loan B market was well received by international lenders and that we were able to register such strong interest that we were oversubscribed," said Christopher Schön, Chief Strategic and Investment Officer of the Schoen Clinic group. "Thanks to this transaction, we can continue the almost 40-year success story of the hospital group and secure the group's financing in a sustainable and flexible manner," said Schön.

Freshfields advised Schön Klinik on all legal aspects of the financing and had also advised Schön Klinik on its €575 million syndicated financing in 2022.

The core team comprised Partner Frank Laudenklos, Counsel Alexander Pospisil and Associates Lucas Lengersdorf and Alexander Bräuer (all Finance, Frankfurt). They were supported by Partner Aled Batey and Associate Akua Danso (both Finance, London) on aspects of English law.
