GrafTech International Ltd. Amends its Revolving Credit Facility to Provide Additional Flexibility

GrafTech International Ltd. announced that it has amended its revolving credit facility to provide additional flexibility, resulting in access to the full $400 million revolver. In addition, the company established a new $40 million senior secured term loan facility. The primary purpose of the credit facility amendment and the term loan facility is to further enhance its capital structure and to provide more than ample liquidity to repay its $200 million senior subordinated notes due in November 2015 while comfortably funding its ongoing operations and initiatives. The term loan is a delayed draw facility, which is to be used in connection with the repayment of the company's senior subordinated notes. The term loan facility was provided by a group of financial institutions led by J.P. Morgan and Bank of America. The interest rate on the facilities is a spread over the London Interbank Offered Rate and will vary based on leverage. The initial interest rate at closing is LIBOR plus 225 basis points.

GrafTech International Announces New Ohio Locations for Headquarters and Technology Center

GrafTech International Ltd. has announced two new Northeast Ohio locations for its global headquarters and innovation and technology center. The company previously announced its decision to relocate its headquarters and redesign its R&D function in September 2014 as part of its ongoing cost savings initiatives to improve profitability and competitive positioning. GrafTech's global headquarters will relocate to Independence, Ohio and will house approximately 50 employees working in the Company's corporate functions, including finance, legal and human resources. The decision to downsize corporate functions by approximately 25% has enabled the relocation to a smaller, more cost effective, corporate headquarters. The newly established Innovation & Technology Center will be located in Brooklyn Heights, Ohio and will include scientists, lab technicians and marketing professionals focused on driving innovation to support new product development. The redesigned R&D function will be focused on commercializing next generation technologies in carbon and graphite material science. The transition is expected to be completed by the end of the first quarter of 2015.
