Aluminium Dunkerque Completes Refinancing

Guillaume de Goÿs, the Chief Executive Officer of Aluminium Dunkerque Industries France SAS, stated, “This refinancing by AIP is welcome news, as it completely stabilizes our capital structure and provides greatly needed working capital.  Among other benefits, it will allow all of the Alumimium Dunkerque companies in France to deliver their statutory audits, as required. We operate in a volatile industry, and as a result a stable financial structure is required for long term operational success.”

Amélie Hennion, the Managing Director of Aluminium Dunkerque SAS, added, “This major refinancing, which AIP delivered in 22 days, along with the social bonus confirmed to the workforce this past week, starts a new chapter for Aluminium Dunkerque in its relationships with its customers, suppliers and employees, as well as the French State.”

Separately, the company has announced that several entity name changes have been completed:
“Liberty Industries France SAS (FR)” is now “Aluminium Dunkerque Industries France SAS (FR)”
“Alvance Aluminium Dunkerque SAS (FR)” is now “Aluminium Dunkerque SAS (FR)”
“Alvance Aluminium Service SAS (FR)” is now “Aluminium Dunkerque Service SAS (FR)”
“Liberty France Industries 1 SA (LUX)” is now “Aluminium Dunkerque Industries 1 SA (LUX)”
“Liberty France Industries 2 SA (LUX)” is now “Aluminium Dunkerque Industries 2 SA (LUX)”.
