"We are pleased to have leveraged the current attractive market conditions to secure an additional $120 million of long-term debt at a 4% effective yield, as an expansion of our series F senior unsecured notes due in 2038," said Kobi Altman, ICL's CFO. "This is in addition to the action we took in the third quarter to solidify our financial strength, which included the renewal of our five-year $300 million securitization facility and the extension of our $900 million credit facility to 2025."
The additional notes will be part of the same series as the previously issued $600 million aggregate principal amount of ICL's 6.375% senior unsecured notes due 2038. The additional notes will have terms identical to the initial notes, except with respect to the date of issuance, the issue price, the initial interest accrual date and the initial interest payment date.
