Orion Engineered Carbons Expands Its Revolving Credit Facility

1 June 2022

Orion Engineered Carbons, a specialty chemical company, today announced that it has added 100 million EUR to its senior secured revolving credit facility, which expands the company's facility to 350 million EUR.

“In light of current volatility within the global energy markets, we feel it is prudent to increase our revolving credit facility. We believe this will cover our working capital needs up to an oil price of about $200 per barrel. We want to be proactively prepared for this higher level of volatility,” said Jeff Glajch, Orion’s chief financial officer.

This expansion was completed at similar terms as Orion’s previous facility. Two new global lenders were added to the lending group. The credit facility was oversubscribed, reflecting confidence in Orion’s prospects during these unsettled times.
