Global economic uncertainty may lead to payment delays, increase the risk for credit losses and weaken the availability and terms of financing. To fund its operations, EB relies mainly on income from its operative business and may from time to time seek additional financing from selected financial institutions. Currently EB has a committed overdraft credit facility agreement of EUR 10.0 million with Nordea Bank Finland Plc and a committed overdraft credit facility agreement of EUR 10.0 million with Pohjola Bank Plc. These agreements meant for general financing needs are valid until June 30, 2017. These agreements include customary covenants related to, among other things, equity ratio, transferring property and pledging. There is no assurance that additional financing will not be needed in case of clearly weaker than expected development of EBīs businesses or in case customer commitments of the Automotive Business Segment would represent more than planned funding for R&D phase.
Customer dependency in some parts of EBīs business may translate as accumulation of risk with respect to outstanding receivables and ultimately with respect to credit losses.
