Over three quarters of the bilateral credit facilities serve to provide guarantees, which are particularly important in the Defence sector, and they are generally utilized up to a maximum of 70 % to ensure sufficient flexibility at all times. With these instruments, Rheinmetall is in a good position to provide the financial resources that it needs for its operating activities in the form of liquidity or guarantees at any time. The use of these options is kept as balanced as possible, taking into account aspects relating to liquidity, margins and security.
