HOUSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Keane Group, Inc. (“Keane” or the “Company”) today announced that on December 22, 2017, the Company amended and restated its Asset-Based Revolving Credit Facility (“New ABL Facility”). The New ABL Facility expands the Company’s total availability by $150 million to a total of $300 million, subject to a borrowing base. In addition, subject to approval by the applicable lenders and other customary conditions, the New ABL Facility allows for an increase in commitments of up to an additional $150 million, up from a previous amount of up to $75 million. Keane’s estimated availability under its New ABL Facility following the amendment is approximately $215 million. The New ABL Facility bears interest at LIBOR + 150-200 bps, compared to LIBOR + 400-450 bps previously. The New ABL Facility also benefits from a lower undrawn commitment fee of 25-37.5 bps, compared to 100-125 bps previously. The New ABL Facility also amended certain terms to reflect Keane’s growth and provide additional flexibility under its covenants.
“This latest amendment to our ABL facility significantly expands our revolving credit capacity, materially reduces interest costs and deepens our lender base,” said Greg Powell, President and Chief Financial Officer of Keane. “We are pleased to enhance our already strong liquidity position, enhancing our growth and financial flexibility against a highly constructive market backdrop for U.S. completions services.”
BofA Merrill Lynch, J.P. Morgan, Morgan Stanley, Citigroup, PNC Capital Markets LLC and Barclays acted as the joint lead arrangers and joint book runners for the New ABL Facility. Bank of America, N.A. will serve as the administrative agent for the New ABL Facility. For further information regarding the New ABL Facility, please refer to the Company’s current report on Form 8-K to be filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
