Saudi power company secures SR13.4bn financing facility to fund long-term growth
Published in The Saudi Gazette on 11 - 08 - 2022

The Saudi Electricity Company (SEC), Saudi Arabia's premier electricity service provider, has announced signing an agreement to obtain a dollar-denominated $3 billion international syndicated facility from 15 leading international lenders.
Covering a five-year tenor, the unsecured facility will be used to refinance an existing syndicated facility, initially raised in 2017 and set to mature in August of 2022, as well as fund the company's capital expenditure needs.
On Thursday, SEC also announced obtaining a $567.5 million Export Credit Agency (ECA) facility, covering a 14-year tenor, to finance its Saudi-Egypt electricity interconnection project.
The ECA facility agreement was signed with Standard Chartered Bank and Sumitomo Mitsui Banking Corporation, and subject to satisfaction of conditions precedent, will be guaranteed by the Swedish Export Credit Agency and funded by the Swedish Export Credit Corporation.
Commenting on singing these Facilities, CEO of SEC Engineer Khaled Al-Gnoon said: "SEC's obtainment of this International Syndicated Facility as well as the ECA facility, both achieved at favorable terms and pricing, is testament to the Company's substantial asset base, high-quality credit, and ties with the Kingdom's sovereign credit rating. The increased interest from the regional and international banking community is also encouraging and speaks to Saudi Arabia's strong economic fundamentals, especially amid volatile market conditions. We look forward to leveraging the International Syndicated Facility to serve our CAPEX requirements, resulting in long-term growth for the business and our investors. Furthermore, the ECA facility will support the Saudi-Egypt electricity interconnection project."
SEC had raised the size and maturity of the International Syndicate Facility, and has attracted new lenders, given the overwhelming interest for participation from the regional and international banking market.
The 15-bank syndicate comprises Standard Chartered Bank, HSBC, Intesa Sanpaolo, Mizuho Bank, MUFG Bank, Sumitomo Mitsui Banking Corporation, Industrial and Commercial Bank of China, State Bank of India, Bank of China, Abu Dhabi Commercial Bank, Abu Dhabi Islamic Bank, First Abu Dhabi Bank, National Bank of Kuwait, KfW IPEX-Bank and Societe Generale. SEC has appointed Mizuho Bank and Abu Dhabi Commercial Bank as the agents for this international syndicate facility. — SPA
