On 22 January 2020, the last payment of a syndicated loan granted by two banking entities was paid to a company in which an NH Group company is a minority shareholder. This company, which consolidates into the NH Group, using the equity method had an outstanding principal of 15,742 thousand euros (equivalent to 17,685 thousand dollars), thereby releasing the guarantees that had been granted for the fulfilment of payment of said loan.

In order to carry out such payment, the Group has made a contribution of 6,315 thousand euros (5,588 thousand euros at 31 December 2019 (See Note 26)) corresponding to the proportional part of NH Hotel Group as a guarantor.

At a date subsequent to the year-end, a claim against a Group company was filed; it is pending processing and in no case will have a significant adverse effect.
