Kinetik Holdings Inc. (NASDAQ: KNTK) shares lost 50% after announcing the successful completion of a comprehensive refinancing that consists of a new 5-year $1.25B unsecured revolving credit facility, a 3-year $2B unsecured term loan A facility, and also a $1B 5.875% sustainability linked senior notes expected in 2030.
Kinetik has a fully unsecured financial structure
Now Kinetik has a completely unsecured financial structure due to the Refinancing. Kinetik put the Refinancing’s net proceeds into repayment and retirement of all current aggregated credit facilities, and it plans to fully redeem the Series A Preferred by the end of 2022.
Kinetik Holdings LP, the company’s affiliate, has completed the earlier disclosed $1B sustainability-linked senior notes maturing in 2030 (the “Senior Notes”). The company completely and unreservedly guarantees the Senior Notes. The Senior Notes are due on June 15, 2030, and will pay an interest rate of 5.875% yearly. They are payable annually on June 15 and December 15 of every year. On December 15, 2022, the initial interest payment shall be made.
CEO and President Jamie Welch said:
We are excited to announce the completion of the comprehensive Refinancing as we believe it materially improves and streamlines Kinetik’s capital structure with no asset level or structurally senior debt as well as solidifies our commitment to achieving Kinetik’s environmental and social sustainability performance targets.
Kinetik’s progress versus sustainability performance criteria linked to methane and greenhouse gas emissions reduction objectives, as well as the presence of women in company officer roles, is tied to the overall Refinancing.
