Baar, Switzerland,  5-7-2013 — /europawire.eu/ — Glencore Xstrata plc (“Glencore”) is pleased to announce the signing of revolving credit facilities (the “Facilities”) for a total amount of USD 17,340 million. The Facilities are for general corporate purposes and replace the previous revolving credit facilities of both Glencore and Xstrata plc.

The Facilities were initially launched at USD 12 billion and closed substantially
oversubscribed, raising in excess of USD 19 billion, due to strong support from Glencore’s broad and deep group of relationship banks. A total of 80 banks have committed to the Facilities, including 29 Mandated Lead Arrangers and Bookrunners.

The Facilities comprise:

• a USD 5,920 million 12-month revolving credit facility with a 12-month term-out option and a 12-month extension option. The facility has two tranches of USD 3,515 million and USD 2,405 million.
• a USD 7,070 million 3-year revolving credit facility with two 12-month extension options.
• a USD 4,350 million 5-year revolving credit facility

Abbey National Treasury Services plc (trading as Santander Global Banking and Markets), Barclays Bank PLC, Commerzbank Aktiengesellschaft, Société Générale CIB and The Royal Bank of Scotland plc were the Active Bookrunners in the syndication of the facilities.

Steven Kalmin, CFO, commented:

“The strong result of syndication and the competitive terms achieved under this transaction demonstrate the widespread support across the banking sector for the newly merged company.”
