The transaction was conducted by the Company’s affiliated party, ie. between Protelindo and Iforte, under the consideration that the guarantee provided by Iforte is given to meet the conditions under the Facility Agreement, in order for the loan facility to be provided. The Corporate Guarantee would not be provided if Iforte was not an affiliated party of Protelindo. The facility is expected to support Protelindo’s business activities which on a consolidated basis will also have a positive impact on Iforte and the Company.
