As requested by Carnegie, the Swedish Central Bank today decided to expand the SEK one billion credit that the Central Bank decided on yesterday to a credit facility of up to SEK five billion. The Central Bank’s assessment is that the bank is solid but that Carnegie has difficulty gaining access to liquidity on the Swedish market. The larger credit facility enhances financial flexibility. This does not imply that Carnegie will use the entire facility.
