The Facility, which is guaranteed by the Company, will be used for general corporate and working capital purposes of the Borrowers via OBSIs issued in the form of standby letter of credits, bid bonds, performance bonds and/or guarantees.

The Facility, which was launched at US $250 million, was significantly oversubscribed after syndication and subsequently increased to US $290 million.
