MET Group (“MET” or the “Group”), a leader in European energy marketing, is pleased to announce the closing of its new Revolving Credit Facilities (the “Facilities” or the “Transaction”) at EUR 885 million, with 15 banks participating in the transaction.

The Transaction was oversubscribed and upsized by EUR 150 million from the previous facility extended in December 2017. The new Facilities consist of a EUR 607.5 million secured and a EUR 277.5 million unsecured revolving credit facility with a 364-day tenor and evergreen extension options. The new Facilities are used for working capital and general corporate purposes.

This Transaction follows MET’s debut unsecured three-year term loan credit facility closed in May 2018 that was subsequently upsized to EUR 74 million in October 2018.

MET now has access to a total of EUR 959 million in syndicated short- and medium-term credit facilities almost reaching the EUR 1 billion bar. MET’s credit facilities have more than doubled in size over the last three years demonstrating MET’s ongoing and increased support offered by banking partners across Europe.
