Revolving Credit Facility On 5 May 2011, Heineken N.V. announced the successful closing of a new Revolving Credit Facility for an amount of EUR2 billion with a syndicate of 17 banks. The new self-arranged credit line has a tenor of five years with two 1 -year extension options and can be used for general corporate purposes. The new Revolving Credit Facility replaces the existing EUR2 billion facility. As at 31 December 2011the committed available financing headroom was approximately EUR1.3 billion, including cash available at Group level. On 27 October 2011EIEINEKEN issued USD90 million of notes with a 6-year maturity, further improving the currency and maturity profile of its long-term debt. EMTN Programme In September 2008, HEINEKEN established a Euro Medium Term Note ("EMTN") Programme which was subsequently updated in September 2009 and September 2010. The programme allows HEINEKEN from time to time to issue Notes. Currently approximately EUR1.9 billion of Notes is outstanding under the programme. The programme can be used for issuance up to one year after its latest update. The EMTN Programme and all Heineken N.V. bonds are listed on the Luxembourg Stock Exchange. HEINEKEN still has a capacity of EUR3.1 billion under this programme. HEINEKEN is in the process of updating the programme. Incurrence covenant HEINEKEN has an incurrence covenant in some of its financing facilities. This incurrence covenant is calculated by dividing Net Debt (calculated in accordance with the consolidation method of the 2007 Annual Accounts) by EBITDA (beia) (also calculated in accordance with the consolidation method of the 2007 Annual Accounts and including the pro-forma full-year EBITDA of any acquisitions made in 2011). As at 31 December 2011 this ratio was 2.1 (2010:2.1If the ratio would be beyond a level of 3.5, the incurrence covenant would prevent us from conducting further significant debt financed acquisitions. 26.
