Glencore plc ("Glencore") is pleased to announce the refinancing of its committed short-term revolving credit facilities (the "Facilities").

The Facilities were initially launched at $5 billion, closing substantially oversubscribed, with commitments received in excess of $6.8 billion.

Reflecting strong support from Glencore's broad group of relationship banks:

  • Glencore scaled back subscription levels to $6.535 billion, materially in line with the $6.572 billion facilities being refinanced
  • A total of 39 banks committed to the Facilities, including 29 Mandated Lead Arrangers and Bookrunners.

The revolving credit facilities are for general corporate purposes, now comprising:

  • a $6.535 billion 12-month revolving credit facility (maturing May 2023), with a 12-month term-out option at the borrower’s discretion, and two 12-month extension options at the lenders’ discretion
  • a $4.65 billion revolving credit facility, $4.2 billion of which matures in May 2026 and $450 million in May 2025.

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