PBF Energy Announces Upsizing of its Credit Agreement and Termination of
Certain Offtake Agreements with Morgan Stanley Capital Group
PARSIPPANY, N.J. -- January 2, 2013
PBF Energy Inc. announced today that it has upsized its subsidiaries’ existing
revolving credit agreement from $1.375 billion to $1.575 billion in
commitments. The credit agreement runs through October 2017 and is used for
working capital and other general corporate purposes.
With the increase in its credit agreement, PBF also announced that its
subsidiaries have terminated, effective June 30, 2013, their existing product
offtake agreements with Morgan Stanley Capital Group Inc. that cover the sales
of refined products from PBF’s Delaware and Paulsboro, NJ refineries.
Commenting on today’s announcements, Tom Nimbley, PBF’s CEO, stated, “PBF’s
ability to sell products directly from our East Coast refineries should
enhance our profitability in the second half of 2013.”
Matthew Lucey, PBF’s CFO, added, “Today’s announcements are a direct result of
the strength of our balance sheet, which we continue to focus on, and are
consistent with actions we described in our public offering.”
Concurrent with the upsizing of the credit agreement, PBF also terminated its
letter of credit facility with BNP Paribas and other lenders, and will use the
upsized credit agreement for letters of credit going forward.
