Financial debt

At December 31, 2017, net financial debt totaled 116 million euros, 946 million euros lower than the 1,062 million euros at December 31, 2016.

In 2017, thanks to the cash generated by operating activities and disposals, Edison reimbursed the outstanding bonds (nominal amount of 600 million euros maturing in November) and the credit line provided by EDF Sa expired in April (utilized for 150 million euros at year end 2016), with no recourse to additional sources of funding. The credit line granted by EDF was replaced with another two year revolving credit facility for the same nominal amount (600 million euros), fully available at the end of 2017.
