PARIS--()--Regulatory News:

The Maurel & Prom group (Paris:MAU) (“M&P”, “the Group”) has secured a new bank loan as well as an extension and amendment of its shareholder loan in order to refinance the existing term loan facility which was entered into in December 2017 with a syndicate of lenders.

As a reminder, M&P’s current gross debt before refinancing amounts to $489 million, including $406 million for the term loan, and $82 million (as well as $100 million undrawn) for the shareholder loan from PT Pertamina Internasional Eksplorasi dan Produksi (“PIEP”), M&P’s majority shareholder. Note that M&P’s cash position at the end of March 2022 was $187 million, giving net debt of $302 million.

The documentation for the new loans, with a total available amount of $437 million, was finalised on 12 May 2022, and M&P now has 60 days to draw the bank loan to repay the existing term loan. It should be highlighted that these loans do not include any cap on dividend distributions to be made by M&P.

Olivier de Langavant, Chief Executive Officer at M&P, stated: “In an environment where access to credit is becoming increasingly difficult and costly for companies in our sector, we have secured very favourable borrowing terms for the next six years. Our repayment schedule allows us to confidently continue working on our development and enables the full repayment of our debt even at oil prices well below current levels. Finally, the lifting of restrictions on dividends opens the door to a firm policy of returning value creation to shareholders, within the framework of a balanced capital allocation strategy.”
