Puma Energy Successfully Closes Oversubscribed Sustainability-Linked Revolving Credit and Term Loan Facilities

Singapore, 5 June 2024 – Puma Energy announced today that it has successfully closed the amendment and extension of its Revolving and Term Loan Facilities (the “Facilities”). These Facilities represent USD 775 million of commitments in aggregate.

The Facilities were oversubscribed, attracting commitments close to USD 1 billion from a diverse group of 30 existing and new lenders, with a broad geographical split (32 per cent Africa, 18 per cent Europe, 22 per cent Asia-Pacific, 14 per cent Middle East and 14 per cent America). The Facilities will include a sustainability linked component with margins adjusted subject to Puma Energy achieving KPIs relating to greenhouse gas emissions as well as road safety.

Carlos Pons, Chief Financial Officer at Puma Energy, said: “I am pleased to announce the successful completion of our 2024 Revolving Credit Facilities and Term Loan. The support we have received from our existing and new lenders demonstrates confidence in the future of Puma Energy as we shift our focus from turning around the business to exploring prudent growth opportunities across our core downstream markets.”

“In addition, the Sustainability-Linked Loan terms reflect our commitment to continue improving our safety practices and to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from our operations,” added Pons.

The two sustainability KPIs, which will be tested annually and verified by a third-party expert, are focused on cutting operational greenhouse gas emissions (Scope 1 & 2), and improving road safety by implementing an in-vehicle monitoring system (IVMS) across Puma Energy’s directly contracted road transportation providers. The facility agent will apply a penalty or discount on the margin, depending on the number of KPIs met each year.

The Facilities comprise a revolving credit facility (“Facility A”) split into Facility A1 (loans and credit instruments for USD 25 million – to be used mainly for off balance sheet instruments like guarantees), Facility A2 (swingline facility for USD 25 million), Facilities A3 (1-year RCF for USD 300 million – which constitutes the core of Puma Energy’s liquidity) and A4 (loans only, 3-year RCF for USD 150 million – to be considered as a liquidity backstop facility); and a term loan facility (“Facility B”, 3-year TL for USD 275 million). Facilities A1, A2 and A3 will have a 1-year tenor and Facilities A4 and B, which make up c.55 per cent of the total facility, will have a 3-year tenor. The Facilities are refinancing the USD 847.5 million facility agreement dated 28 April 2023, as well as being used for general corporate and working capital purposes.

On the back of strong operational performance, the size of the term loan facility was upsized by USD 100m and the tenor of both the medium-term RCF and term loan was increased from 2-year to 3-year. This demonstrates Puma Energy’s capacity to source medium-term liquidity and, coupled with the recent successful issuance of 2029 Notes and subsequent refinancing of 2024 Notes, significantly extends Puma Energy’s debt maturity profile.

ABSA Bank (Mauritius) Limited (“ABSA”), FirstRand Bank Limited (Acting through its Rand Merchant Bank Division), London Branch (“FirstRand”), Industrial and Commercial Bank of China Limited, London Branch (“ICBC”), ING Bank N.V.
