Moscow, Russia - 23 June 2017 - Metalloinvest ("the Company"), a leading global iron ore and HBI producer and supplier, and one of the regional producers of high-quality steel, has completed the refinancing of existing pre-export finance facilities amounting to USD 1.03 bn. The refinancing took place using funds obtained through a new pre-export finance facility (the "PXF-2017"), which was provided with a syndicate of international banks under the terms of the deal announced on 5 May 2017. As a result, the Company has improved its debt maturity schedule and reduced debt servicing costs.
The PXF-2017 includes a USD 800 mn five-year tranche to be redeemed in 2020-2022 and
a USD 250 mn seven-year tranche to be redeemed in 2022-2024. Both tranches have floating interest rates linked to one-month LIBOR.
The Company's two recent debt management transactions, the PXF-2017 and Eurobond-2024 issue, reduced the Company's debt payments due in the period 2017-2020 by almost half to USD 1.7 bn from USD 3 bn as at the end of 2016.
