Filed Under: Auction News

Ritchie Bros. Auctioneers announced the closing of an amendment and extension of its credit agreement totaling US$1.045 billion with a syndicate of lenders comprising:

  •     Multicurrency revolving facilities of up to US$750 Million
  •     A delayed-draw term loan facility of up to US$295 Million

BofA Securities and RBC Capital Markets served as Joint Lead Arrangers and Joint Bookrunners. Bank of America served as Administrative Agent and the Royal Bank of Canada as Syndication Agent.

The maturity date of the Facilities has been extended from October 27, 2023 to September 21, 2026. Drawn amounts under the Delayed-Draw Facility will amortize in equal quarterly installments in an annual amount of 5%, with the balance payable at maturity. The Facilities continue to be secured by the assets of the Company and certain of its subsidiaries in the United States and Canada.

"We are very pleased with the interest the banks expressed in participating in the extension and upsize of our syndicated credit facilities," said Sharon Driscoll, Chief Financial Officer of Ritchie Bros. "The upsized debt arrangement provides us with increased financial flexibility relative to the previous debt arrangement and will help us achieve future growth initiatives, including our previously announced acquisition of Euro Auctions. Ritchie Bros.' strong cash flow profile will assist with de-levering of our balance sheet following the acquisition of Euro Auctions. We would like to thank our syndicate of banking partners for their support and demonstrating their confidence in our business, especially during these uncertain times."
