Total bank loans from Nordea amount to 7.3 MEUR or 71 MSEK, of which guaranteed by Finnvera is 3.6 MEUR. Loan repayments will begin in 2018. The loan agreement with Nordea includes a number of financial loan covenants to be fulfilled by either Endomines Oy or Endomines AB, unless waived by the bank and the guarantor.
