Vale and the China Merchants Group Signs an Expanded Framework Agreement for Strategic Cooperation in Iron Ore Shipping and Integrated Logistics

Vale and the China Merchants Group (CMES) signed an expanded framework agreement for strategic cooperation in iron ore shipping and integrated logistics on a long-term basis. According to the expanded agreement, Vale will sell four existing very large ore carriers (VLOCs) to CMES. Vale and the China Ocean Shipping Company (COSCO) struck a similar deal on Tuesday during Chinese Premier Li Keqiang's official visit to Brazil. COSCO acquired four 400,000t VLOCs owned and operated by Vale. Both agreements are expected to be funded by China's Eximbank (CEXIM), which is considering providing a loan facility of up to $1.2 billion each to COSCO and CMES. The companies would use the vessels to provide shipping services to Vale. In addition, Vale signed an MOU with the Commercial bank of China (ICBC) for a $4 billion fund in the form of syndicated loans, bilateral loans, export credit and trade finance.

Vale S.A. Signs $3 Billion Revolving Credit Facility

Vale S.A. announced that it has successfully completed a $3 billion syndicated revolving credit facility, which will be available for five years. The revolving credit line was arranged by a banking syndicate comprised of 24 global banks, led by BNP Paribas, Citibank, Crédit Agricole and Sumitomo. The syndicate also includes the following banks: The Bank of Nova Scotia, Intesa San Paolo, Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce, Royal Bank of Canada, Mizuho, HSBC, Bank of Montreal, TD Securities, Barclays, Industrial and Commercial Bank of China, Société Générale, Standard Chartered, Santander, JP Morgan, Bank of Tokyo-Mitsubishi UFJ, Morgan Stanley, Bank of America, Goldman Sachs, ANZ Banking Group and DZ Bank. The commitments received from the banks substantially exceeded the amount originally requested by the company. This revolving credit facility will replace the $3 billion line that was signed in 2011. Therefore the total available amount in revolving credit facilities remains at $5 billion, as they already have an existing agreement for $2 billion. These facilities are liquidity sources for Vale and some of its wholly-owned subsidiaries and could be drawn at any time throughout the life of the facilities ($2 billion until 2018 and $3 billion until 2020). The revolving credit lines work as a buffer and allow more efficient cash management, consistent with Vale's strategic focus on cost of capital reduction.
