Agri-business co-operative Saskatchewan Wheat Pool (SWP) announced today that it has elected to prepay C$25m (US$16.4m) of an outstanding term loan with its bank group. The prepayment, which is a partial credit against an installment payment due in November 2002, allows the Regina, Saskatchewan-based company to reduce its borrowing charges by C$2.6m over the life of the bank facility, which expires in approximately a year and a half.
