Dexia Crédit Local is funded on the markets via a guarantee granted by the Belgian and French States
Within the framework of the Dexia Group’s orderly resolution plan, the Belgian and French States granted Dexia Crédit Local a guarantee on its funding. This guarantee was granted by law in each State and took effect on 1 January 2022.
It extends the funding guarantee granted by the Belgian, French and Luxembourg States on 24 January 2013, which, although it expired on 31 December 2021, continues to have effect for all guaranteed bonds issued by Dexia Crédit Local until 31 December 2021 and for a maximum maturity period of 10 years since their issue date.
This extended funding guarantee remains irrevocable, unconditional and payable on first demand. It covers the Group's guaranteed bonds issued until 31 December 2031, with a maximum maturity of 10 years from their date of issue and a maximum principal amount of EUR 72 billion.
The guarantee is also joint but not several, which means that in the event of a call on the guarantee, each guarantor State will be liable to fulfil its payment obligations only to the extent of its proportional commitment under the guarantee (i.e. 53% for Belgium and 47% for France).
