CHARLOTTE, N.C., March 31, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Honeywell (NYSE: HON) announced today that it has entered into a $6 billion two-year delayed draw term loan agreement to maximize financial flexibility and further bolster liquidity in the event global economic conditions persist or worsen throughout 2020.
"Honeywell is in an extremely strong position to effectively manage the current economic environment. We closed 2019 with $10 billion in cash on our balance sheet, our pension liability is in an overfunded position, and our debt commitments are manageable thanks to the smart actions we took over the past several years to refinance our debt at attractive rates. The term loan we announced today will further strengthen our resilience in uncertain times," said Darius Adamczyk, chairman and chief executive officer of Honeywell.
Further details about the loan agreement will be contained in a Current Report on Form 8-K to be filed by Honeywell with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.
