Stockholm, June 15, 2009 The medical technology company Elekta has entered a cooperative agreement with SEK, the Swedish Export Credit Corporation. The agreement entails customer financing and applies globally with the exception of North America, where Elekta already has an established partner for customer financing.
The cooperative agreement with SEK Customer Financing strengthens and expands Elekta’s opportunities for offering competitive solutions for customer financing. Within the framework of the agreement, SEK will offer care providers around the world financing in the form of installment credit and leasing of Elekta’s clinical systems.
Elekta will be able to offer customers financing with limited impact on its own balance sheet.
“Since the credit crisis began, we have seen increased demand for alternative financing solutions. I am therefore delighted that we are now able to offer our customers a broad range of attractive solutions in this area,” says Håkan Bergström, CFO at Elekta.
“We are pleased to be entrusted with assisting Elekta with its customer financing platform. This agreement is completely in line with our ambition to increase the competitiveness of Swedish export companies in the global market,” says Peter Yngwe, President of SEK.
