HSBC Leads Lenders in AMG’s $320MM Credit Facility

AMG Advanced Metallurgical Group N.V. has entered into a new $320 million multicurrency term loan and revolving credit facility. The new facility, which was oversubscribed, includes an accordion feature that allows the Company, subject to certain conditions, to increase the amount of the facility by up to $100 million. HSBC Bank plc coordinated the financing and together with Lloyds Securities Inc. and UniCredit Bank AG, served as joint bookrunners and mandated lead arrangers. Fifth Third Bank and SEB AG also served as mandated lead arrangers.

AMG used the proceeds of the credit facility to repay its existing term loan and revolving credit facility, which was due to expire in April 2016. The new three-year facility extends the term of the Company's primary debt agreement to May 2018, with two extension options of one year each.

"We are pleased to have concluded a successful refinancing transaction," said Amy Ard, AMG's Chief Financial Officer. "Our new credit facility has improved terms and conditions, including the removal of the tangible net worth covenant, and will reduce borrowing costs. The refinancing provides a stable capital base and additional liquidity for strategic growth opportunities. We are grateful to the entire bank group for their support of AMG."

AMG is a global critical materials company at the forefront of CO2 reduction trends. AMG produces highly engineered specialty metals and mineral products and provides related vacuum furnace systems and services to the transportation, infrastructure, energy, and specialty metals & chemicals end markets.
