Avance signs $104 million sustainability-linked financing

BERMUDA: Avance Gas Holding Ltd has signed and completed the $104 million sustainability-linked term facility with a bank syndicate previously announced in May 2021.

The transaction will secure financing of the two first dual fuel newbuildings, Avance Polaris and Avance Capella, scheduled for delivery in Q4 2021 and Q1 2022. The facility has a maturity at the earlier of five years from delivery of the second newbuilding and June 2027. The financing is expected to be drawn upon delivery of the vessels from the shipyard.

The facility has an annual sustainability margin adjustment mechanism linked to the Company’s ambition to reduce and outperform the carbon intensity targets set in the Poseidon Principles. The dual fuel newbuildings will significantly lower our carbon footprint and the sustainability-linked financing further demonstrates our commitment to de-carbonisation of the shipping industry with support from the bank syndicate in this facility.
