Glencore announces extension of its revolving credit facilities

Baar, Switzerland
31 March 2021

 

Glencore is pleased to announce the extension of its revolving credit facilities (the "Facilities").

The shorter-term facilities were extended to May 2022 and the longer-term facility was extended to May 2026.  44 banks agreed to the extension across the Facilities.

In line with Glencore’s stated target of managing Net debt towards the lower end of its USD 10-16 billion target range, and then sustainably maintaining this lower level, the aggregate Facilities have been reduced to USD 12.7 billion by way of a voluntary cancellation. 

The extended Facilities are for general corporate purposes, comprising:

  • USD 8.07 billion 12-month revolving credit facilities, with a 12-month term-out option at the borrowers discretion
  • USD 4.65 billion revolving credit facility with final maturity in May 2026

The margins on the Facilities remain the same as 2020.

As in previous years, these committed unsecured Facilities contain no financial covenants, no rating triggers and no material adverse change clauses.
