Pivovarna Lasko Extends Loan Repayment by a Year, STA Says

Pivovarna Lasko (PILR) Group d.d. agreed with banks in Slovenia to delay about 160 million euro ($210 million) of loan repayments, STA newswire reported, citing people close to the Slovenian drinks company it didn’t name.

The loans from Nova Ljubljanska Banka d.d., Nova Kreditna Banka Maribor d.d. and others were due at the end of March and were extended for one year or more with some of the lenders, the Slovenian newswire said.

Pivovarna Lasko spokesman Jure Struc declined to confirm the agreement in a phone interview today and said the company may give details at a press conference in Ljubljana tomorrow.
