KKR, a renowned global investment firm, announced on Friday that its credit business, responsible for managing funds and accounts, has agreed to provide a £75M (approximately €87M) non-recourse financing facility to TalkTalk.
TalkTalk is a value for money connectivity provider in the UK that believes in simple, affordable, reliable and fair connectivity to everyone. From its HQ in Salford, TalkTalk is rolling out the UK’s latest fibre technology, bringing 100 per cent full fibre directly into homes and businesses across Britain.
The facility is backed by accounts receivables from TalkTalk and subsidiaries, replacing a £75M facility maturing in 2023. The new facility will give TalkTalk additional liquidity for approximately three years.
