LONDON, May 4 (Reuters) - British chocolatier Hotel Chocolat has increased its banking facilities to help get it through the coronavirus crisis, it said on Monday.
The firm said it had agreed a 35 million pounds ($43.5) million) revolving credit facility with Lloyds Bank, replacing a 10 million pounds overdraft. The new facility follows a 22 million pounds equity placing in March.
Hotel Chocolat closed all its stores on March 23 in line with the UK lockdown. It said this had a material impact on Easter trading but was partly mitigated by online sales.
