AMSTERDAM, 5 February 2019 – TIP Trailer Services, a portfolio company of I Squared Capital, has successfully refinanced its existing Revolving Credit Facility (RCF), increasing it from €700 million to €967 million while obtaining reduced margins and extra flexibility. The funding round was substantially oversubscribed, and the facility is now a syndication of ten leading banks and a maturity of five years with optional extensions of one to two years. The facility was originally established in 2014 for a five-year period with three banks in the syndicate and a total amount of €300 million. The new facility aims to support the long-term growth plan of the business.
“The refinancing of our RCF and the liquidity it provides put us in a strong position to continue to invest in CapEx, PP&E, bolt-on acquisitions and broaden our geographic presence. It will support and underpin our growth aims over the coming years.”
Bob Fast, CEO, TIP Trailer Services
“We originally structured and funded our RCF with three banks four years ago and now we are delighted to have ten leading banks in the syndicate. There was strong demand from the market, driven by our business growth and performance over the past five years. As well as providing us with competitive cost of funds, it provides us with a solid and flexible base to grow, as well as navigate any economic downturn that might arise over the coming years. We are entering 2019 with a strong balance sheet.”
