Closing of Term Loan and Credit Facility Extension
Pembina has closed its previously announced $1 billion non-revolving term loan (“Term Loan”) with certain existing lenders. The Term Loan will be used to partially repay existing amounts drawn under Pembina’s $2.5 billion revolving credit facility, thereby providing additional liquidity, flexibility and interest cost savings. The Term Loan will have an initial term of three years and is pre-payable at the Company’s option. The other terms and conditions of the Term Loan, including financial covenants, are substantially similar to Pembina’s $2.5 billion revolving credit facility. Concurrently, Pembina also completed an extension of its $2.5 billion revolving credit facility, which now matures May 31, 2023.
