Castleton Commodities International LLC announced the closing of two credit facilities totaling $3.6 billion.
The facilities include a committed senior secured working capital facility and a committed unsecured revolving credit facility. The senior secured facility is comprised of a $1.25 billion 3-year tranche and a $2.0 billion 364-day tranche. The unsecured facility is comprised of a single $350 million 364-day tranche.
Castleton said that both facilities were significantly oversubscribed, with CCI receiving over $4.9 billion of commitments in total.
The proceeds will refinance CCI’s existing $3.3 billion senior secured facility and $300 million unsecured facility signed in June 2016, fund general corporate purposes and provide letters of credit for the company’s merchanting activities in multiple countries. The senior secured facility features a $1.0 billion accordion which remains available to support future growth.
