Press Release
13 April 2022

New US$800m RCF agreed

The Weir Group PLC has successfully completed the refinancing of its main banking facility, with a syndicate of 11 global banks. The new US$800m Revolving Credit Facility (RCF) will mature in April 2027 with the option to extend for up to a further two years. The margin on the new facility is significantly lower than the previous facility that was agreed during the early stages of the Covid-19 pandemic and reflects positive credit rating momentum over the last two years as Weir has continued to reduce leverage and show its resilience as a mining technology focused business . This new facility replaces the existing US$950m RCF that was due to mature in June 2023. All key terms including covenants remain unchanged.
