Loyens & Loeff team successfully advised the Pierre & Vacances group in its restructuring

On 24 June 2021, the restructuring of the Pierre & Vacances group was completed. Pierre & Vacances is a well-known listed French tourism services provider, with holiday parks in (among others) Belgium, the Netherlands and Germany known as ‘Center Parcs’. The restructuring has led to a new credit facility of a maximum amount of €300 million enabling the Pierre & Vacances group to meet its short-term and medium-term cash-flow needs.
