Kuwait’s Agility signs 1.4 billion euro facility with banks

One of the biggest Gulf logistics companies, Agility of Kuwait, said on Sunday that it has inked a new 1.4 billion euro credit facility.

According to the statement, the transaction is a part of a funding round with a projected value of $3.2 billion. The business said that the funds would be used to support its expansion goals, including financing the purchase of British aviation services provider John Menzies.
