MULTICURRENCY CREDIT FACILITY AGREEMENT
OF UP TO USD400 MILLION
The Company is pleased to announce that a multicurrency credit facility
agreement of up to USD400 million was signed on 30 January 2013 with the first
utilization under that financing scheduled for early February 2013.
United Company RUSAL Plc (the “Company”) is pleased to announce that, on 30
January 2013, it entered into a multicurrency credit facility agreement of up
to USD400 million with various international banks, including ING Bank N.V. as
the coordinating mandated lead arranger, and Bank of China (UK) Limited and
OJSC Nordea Bank as the mandated lead arrangers, UniCredit Bank Austria AG,
ZAO UniCredit Bank, Raiffeisen Bank International AG and Société Générale as
the senior lead arrangers (the “Facility”).
The Company intends to prepay the scheduled amortizations of principal due for
the third and fourth quarters of 2013 in early February 2013 under the USD4.75
billion syndicated facility dated 29 September 2011 arranged and funded by the
international and Russian lenders (as mentioned in the Company’s announcement
dated 30 September 2011) in the total amount of USD406 million using the funds
under the Facility (to be disbursed upon the satisfaction of all conditions
precedent) as well as the Company’s own funds (up to USD80 million). Following
such prepayment, the Company will not have any amounts of principal due in
2013 under the aforementioned USD4.75 billion syndicated facility. Therefore
the total scheduled repayments of principal in 2013 due under the Company’s
financing arrangements will be reduced to approximately USD500 million (such
amount being due in the third and fourth quarters of 2013).
