Strong bank support for Group strategy results in substantial over-subscription
GENEVA, Nov. 16, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Gunvor Group Ltd ("Gunvor" or the "Group") has signed a US $1.39 billion Revolving Credit Facility ("RCF") in favour of Gunvor International B.V. and Gunvor SA (the "Borrowers"). The RCF, launched at US $1 billion, was substantially over-subscribed, drawing in US $1.81 billion, a record high for the facility. The RCF was scaled back to accommodate the needs of the Group, which will use the funds to finance general corporate purposes and working capital requirements.
"Gunvor continues to receive considerable support from both its existing banking partners as well as from new ones," said Jacques Erni, CFO, Gunvor Group. "Thanks to our continuous efforts to tighten cash management and improve financial structuring, we have become more efficient financially, with reduced working capital needs. At the same time, Gunvor continues to implement our strategy of geographic expansion and product diversification, generating positive returns in a challenging and evolving environment."
The RCF will replace the maturing Tranche A (US $1.415 billion) of the Borrowers' US $1.67 billion RCF dated 17 November 2016 and Tranche B (US $210 million) of the US $1.36 billion RCF dated 23 November 2015. The first RCF for Gunvor in Europe was launched in 2008 and is complemented by the Group's Asian Revolving Credit Facilities, Borrowing Base facilities, and OBSI Facility.
