Programmes and credit facilities

Vattenfall finances its operations and investments through a combination of its own generated cash flow and external funding, mainly in the form of corporate bonds. Senior bonds are issued under a Euro Medium Term Note programme (EUR 10 billion). The programme is unrated but each bond is rated separately by Moody’s (A3) and S&P (BBB+).

For short-term funding, Vattenfall has a European Commercial Paper programme (EUR 6 billion) which is rated by Moody’s (“P-2”) and S&P (“A-2”). In addition, Vattenfall has access to an undrawn Revolving Credit Facility (EUR 2 billion) which serves as a general liquidity back-up and ensures financial flexibility. A total of 15 banks, which also comprise Vattenfall’s core bank group, participates in the credit facility.
