Viterra Limited, through its subsidiary Viterra Finance B.V., has successfully signed two separate senior unsecured sustainability-linked revolving credit facilities in the aggregate amount of USD 4.085 million (together, the “Facilities”).
The Facilities were launched on 26 March 2021 in the proposed aggregate amount of USD 3.250 million, and quickly gained strong interest from Viterra’s relationship banks, resulting in an oversubscription of more than 25 percent. As a result, the Facilities were subsequently increased to an aggregate amount of USD 4.085 million, with Viterra choosing to scale back lender commitments.
The Facilities are comprised of (a) a 12-month revolving credit facility with a one-year extension option and a one-year term-out option, and (b) a three-year revolving credit facility with two one-year extension options.
With sustainability being regarded as a key priority at Viterra, the Facilities are linked to achieving Viterra’s sustainability targets.
Viterra’s sustainability targets include a reduction of greenhouse gas emissions, a reduction of water and fossil energy consumption, increased traceable-to-origin soy sourced in South America, and achieving safety targets. If Viterra meets these targets, it will reinvest its interest savings from these credit facilities into additional sustainability initiatives within the company.
The Facilities were arranged by Citi (Coordinator and Documentation Agent), Coöperatieve Rabobank U.A. (Sustainability Coordinator), ING Bank N.V. (Facility Agent) and the Royal Bank of Canada, all of which acted as Active Bookrunners and Mandated Lead Arrangers.
