ABN AMRO Bank N.V. and BNP Paribas (the “Active Bookrunning Mandated Lead Arrangers”) are pleased to announce the successful syndication and signing of a 650,000,000 364-day Multicurrency Revolving Credit Facility (the “Facility”) for ECOM Agroindustrial Corp. Ltd. (“ECOM” or the “Company”).
The Facility agreement was signed on 11 October 2016, with an effective date of 17 October 2016.
The Active Bookrunning Mandated Lead Arrangers were joined by Commerzbank AG, Coöperatieve Rabobank U.A, Deutsche Bank AG, UBS Switzerland AG and Zürcher
Kantonalbank before general syndication.
The Facility is for general corporate purposes including the refinancing of the Company’s USD 635,000,000 364-day Revolving Credit Facility dated 13 October 2015.
The Facility, launched at USD 500,000,000, was significantly oversubscribed and attracted new lenders keen to build a relationship with the Company.
Following the strong support received from its banks, ECOM eventually decided to increase the total size of the Facility to USD 650,000,000.
The Facility carries one 364-day extension option exercisable at the Company’s request and at the discretion of each lender. ABN AMRO Bank N.V. acted as Documentation Agent and Facility Agent.
