Fugro has had sounding discussions with a select number of investors and, subject to market conditions, expects to announce further details about the Senior Secured Notes transaction imminently.
Fugro will enter into a new 4.5 year EUR 200 million Revolving Credit Facility, subject to the successful issuance of the Senior Secured Notes. The rate of interest will be EURIBOR plus a margin based on the ratio of consolidated net debt to EBITDA. The new syndicated Revolving Credit Facility, which will replace the current EUR 575 million Revolving Credit Facility, is arranged by ING, Rabobank, Credit Suisse, BNP Paribas, HSBC and Bank of China.
BNP Paribas has been retained as sole dealer manager in relation to the buy-back of any and all of the Convertible Bonds due 2021. Further details about the buy-back of any and all of the Convertible Bonds due 2021 will be announced imminently.
Fugro does not require additional shareholder authorisation for the envisaged refinancing plan.
