International Public Partnerships ('the Company', 'INPP'), the listed infrastructure investment company, is pleased to announce that it has renewed its corporate debt facility for a further three years to March 2024 to support its future investment pipeline.

The new facility has the same overall GBP400 million capacity as the previous fully committed arrangement but is structured to more efficiently support the Company's near-term pipeline comprising GBP250 million on a fully committed basis together with a flexible 'accordion' component which will, subject to lender approval, allow for a future extension by an additional GBP150 million. The new facility will expire in March 2024 and the following key pricing terms have been negotiated:

-- a margin of 165bps over EURIBOR for Euro drawings and 170bps over SONIA for Sterling drawings; and

-- a ratchet mechanism applies to the commitment fee such that it varies between 50bps and 90bps depending on the level of utilisation.

The banking group for the existing facility has been retained. This includes National Australia Bank, The Royal Bank of Scotland International, Sumitomo Mitsui Banking Corporation and Barclays Bank.

As at 3 March 2021, the Company had utilised GBP38 million of the credit available to it under the debt facility, leaving GBP212 million of the new GBP250 million committed facility available. This available funding will be used to finance the Company's existing preferred bidder Offshore Transmission Project ('OFTO') investment commitments including Beatrice, Rampion and East Anglia One OFTOs, as well as further investments into Diabolo Rail, Offenbach Police Headquarters and existing digital infrastructure investments.
