LONDON, Oct. 01, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Ferroglobe PLC (NASDAQ: GSM) (“Ferroglobe” or the “Company”) announced today that it has obtained the consent of its lenders for and entered into an amendment (the “Amendment”) to its existing revolving credit agreement (the “RCF”). Among other provisions, the Amendment:

  • reduces the aggregate amount of revolving commitments under the RCF from $200 million to $150 million;
  • reduces the minimum unrestricted cash required to be maintained by the Company at all times to $70 million;
  • adds a requirement for the Company to maintain, at all times, an aggregate amount of restricted cash equal to (i) the amount outstanding under the RCF at any time minus (ii) $100 million, in a blocked deposit account, which shall be in addition to the minimum cash requirement above;
  • provides that any breach of the financial covenants requiring the Company to maintain a maximum net total leverage ratio or a minimum interest coverage ratio as of the end of the fiscal quarter ending September 30, 2019 shall not constitute an event of default under the RCF until October 30, 2019; and
  • imposes additional requirements for the Company to deliver certain information and documentation to the RCF lenders.

Pedro Larrea, Ferroglobe’s Chief Executive Officer, commented: “This amendment demonstrates the continued support of our current lenders and enhances our actual available liquidity. We would highlight that the amount outstanding under the RCF has remained constant at $133 million for almost twelve months and this is not expected to change. As such, the amendment improves the cash available to the Company by effectively reducing the aggregate minimum cash requirement under the RCF at current levels from $150 million to $103 million (representing $70 million of unrestricted cash and $33 million in a blocked account).” Mr. Larrea added: “We are now focused on closing the proposed refinancing of the RCF, with a view to affording the Company greater operational and financial flexibility. We are in advanced negotiations on this and remain on track to close in the short-term.”
