Wells Fargo Capital Finance announced it acted as left lead arranger, book manager, and administrative agent on a $1 billion, multi-currency, senior secured revolving credit facility for Novelis, Inc. The credit facility refinanced Novelis’ existing credit facility, and funded working capital needs, capital expenditures and general corporate purposes.

Headquartered in Atlanta, Novelis is a leading global producer of aluminum-rolled products and the world's largest recycler of aluminum. For fiscal year 2013, the company operated in nine countries, had approximately 11,000 employees, 25 operating plants and reported revenues of $9.8 billion. Novelis supplies premium aluminum sheet and foil products to automotive, transportation, packaging, construction, industrial, electronics and printing markets throughout North America, Europe, Asia and South America. Novelis is a subsidiary of Hindalco Industries Limited, one of Asia's largest integrated producers of aluminum and a leading copper producer. Hindalco is a flagship company of the Aditya Birla Group, a multinational conglomerate based in Mumbai.

“We are pleased to have been able to complete such an important financing for Novelis as their business continues to grow around the world,” said Henry Jordan, chairman and chief executive officer of Wells Fargo Capital Finance. “By utilizing the expertise of our London business unit, Burdale Financial Limited, this transaction demonstrated the expanding capabilities that Wells Fargo Capital Finance offers its U.S.-based clients with overseas operations.”

“Novelis is in the midst of a significant investment program involving major capacity expansions to meet growing demand worldwide,” said Steve Fisher, senior vice president and chief financial officer for Novelis. “The amended credit facility will further strengthen our liquidity and provide additional flexibility, helping to support these investments.”
