Under the arrangement, Oaktree will provide Molycorp and certain of the Company's subsidiaries with up to $400 million in secured financing through credit facilities and the sale and leaseback of certain equipment at the Company's Mountain Pass facility (the "Financings"). $250 million of the Financings has now been funded, with the remaining $150 million available until April 30, 2016 if Molycorp achieves consolidated adjusted EBITDA of not less than $20.0 million per quarter for two consecutive fiscal quarters, and production volume at its Mountain Pass facility of at least 4,000 metric tons per quarter for two consecutive fiscal quarters.
The financings are secured by certain Molycorp assets and certain assets of the Company's subsidiaries, guaranteed by most of the Company's subsidiaries, and will mature in five years, subject to certain springing maturity dates dependent on the Company's repayment of certain outstanding debt, beginning on April 30, 2016.
