The Facilities were launched at USD 2.1 Billion on 23rd April and a bank meeting was held in London on 25th April. Following strong demand from banks, the Facilities were oversubscribed by more than 25%, and subsequently increased to USD 2.25 Billion in aggregate, with Mercuria choosing to scale back lender commitments. 

 

The Facilities comprise a 1-year Multicurrency Revolving Credit Facility, a 1-year Multicurrency Revolving Credit/Swingline/OBSI Facility and two 3-year Revolving Credit Facilities. The two 1-year Multicurrency Revolving Credit Facilities (launched at USD 1.4 Billion) both include two 12-month extension options. A new 3-year Revolving Credit Facility (launched at USD 100 Million) also includes one 12-month extension option, while the existing 3-year Revolving credit Facility (USD 600 Million) was extended by one year aligining the maturity with the new USD 100m 3-year facility. The Facilities will be used for general corporate purposes and working capital.

 

 “The renewal of our 2019 European RCF (ERCF) has again been a success and another strong vote of confidence coming from our banking partners that value the resilience and performance of the business model developed by Mercuria over the past 15 years” said Guillaume Vermersch, Group Chief Financial Officer of Mercuria. “Across a diversified portfolio of over 40 banks joining this USD 2.25 billion ERCF facility, Mercuria has continued to strengthen its strategic banking relationships supporting the continued growth of the firm.”
