IGas announces that it has signed a US$40 million senior secured Reserve-Based Lending Facility (RBL) with BMO Capital Markets (BMO).

In addition to the committed US$40 million RBL, a further US$20 million accordion facility is available on an uncommitted basis, subject to new bank commitments. The RBL has a five year term, an interest rate of LIBOR plus 4.0% and matures in September 2024.

The Company has also exercised its call option and issued a redemption notice with respect to all outstanding bonds ("Secured Bonds") pursuant to the 10 per cent. IGas Energy PLC Senior Secured Callable Bond Issue 2013/2018 - ISIN NO 001 0673791. The Secured Bonds will be redeemed at par value (100%) plus accrued interest on the redeemed amount up until, but not including, the settlement date of the call option on 19 November 2019.

The proceeds from the new RBL will be used to repay the Secured Bonds, fund development opportunities in the conventional portfolio and for general corporate purposes.

The new RBL has been underwritten and arranged by BMO. Rothschild & Co. acted as financial adviser to the Company and Pinsent Masons LLP were the Company's legal adviser. Herbert Smith Freehills LLP acted for BMO.

Commenting Stephen Bowler, Chief Executive Officer, said:

"We are extremely pleased to announce that we have signed a $40 million RBL facility with BMO. The facility reduces our overall cost of debt and provides the financial flexibility for continued investment into our conventional portfolio to grow our production over the coming years."
