Eran Ezra, Rivulis CFO, explained: “This Financing package, offered by such prestigious banking institutions, underscores our strong forward momentum to become a global irrigation and climate leader, and is testimony to the strong backing received in this. The package will allow for strong organic growth while simultaneously enabling us to execute on our already announced merger with Jain’s IIB. The terms obtained by the banks, including covenant and maturities’ structure, will give us the operational flexibility we need to execute on our strategic plans to make modern irrigation accessible to growers across the globe and will enable management focus on the tasks ahead of us.”

Dalit Uri, HSBC Israel, Head of Corporate Banking, added: “We are proud to support Rivulis, a truly innovative company committed to resolving the most pressing challenges of our planet: feeding humanity while preserving the planet from the perils of climate change. As a leading international bank, it was natural for us to become a part of Rivulis’ journey to help growers across the world.”
