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 33%, and subsequently increased to USD 2.4 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 Facility/Swingline and a 3-year Revolving Credit Facility. The two 1-year Multicurrency Revolving Credit Facilities (launched at USD 1.7 Billion) both include two 12-month extension options. The 3-year Revolving Credit Facility (launched at USD 400 Million) also includes two 12-month extension options. The Facilities will be used for general corporate purposes and working capital.
“Our 2018 European RCF successful renewal is another very strong message sent by our banking partners, highlighting their deep understanding of Mercuria’s diversified and robust business model . Forty geographically different strategic banks have participated into the Facility which has been highly oversubscribed.” said Guillaume Vermersch, Group Chief Financial Officer of Mercuria.
We look forward to continuing to work closely with our banking group, essential to keep on supporting the ongoing growth of the firm.”
