RBC Capital Markets Leads 27% Upsize to Seven Generations Energy Credit Facility

Filed Under: Energy

A syndicate of lenders has agreed to increase the size of Seven Generations Energy Ltd.'s senior secured credit facility by about 27%, from $1.1 billion to $1.4 billion. With this increase, 7G had available funding of about $1.9 billion as of March 31, 2017 on a pro-forma basis.

The credit facility was led by RBC Capital Markets and had participation from a syndicate of 12 other financial institutions. The credit facility matures on June 9, 2021. 

7G's credit facility has moved from a reserve-based structure, with lending capacity re-determined on a semi-annual basis, to a covenant-based facility governed by senior secured leverage and interest coverage metrics. The new facility structure provides 7G with four years of funding and ensures committed credit capacity across the commodity price cycle.

"Our financial strength is reflected in this additional credit capacity and flexibility. Shifting away from reserves-based security to a four-year covenant-based facility recognizes the high quality of our assets, their capacity to generate profitable growth, a large established production base with processing, transportation and markets, as well as our track record of successfully converting our significant resources to reserves, production, cash flow and earnings. We plan to continue our conservative approach to debt and draws on our credit facility. We now have access to $1.4 billion in addition to adjusted working capital of about $500 million that we had at the end of the first quarter of 2017. Our credit facility remains undrawn," said Chris Law, 7G's Chief Financial Officer.
