(London & Dubai, 7 May 2019) ADES International Holding PLC ("ADES" or the "Company"), a leading oil & gas drilling and production services provider in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA), is pleased to announce that it has secured an additional SAR 540 million (US$144 million) top-up to the SAR 525 million (US$140 million) credit facility (the "KSA Facility") from Alinma Bank, one of the leading Saudi Arabia based financial institutions.

 

Consequently, the total approved facility from Alinma Bank is SAR 1,065 million (US$284 million) out of which SAR 525 million (US$140 million) has been utilized in 2018. The terms of the facility have remained unchanged.

Commenting on the KSA Facility agreement, Dr. Mohamed Farouk, Chief Executive Officer of ADES, said:

 

"We are very pleased to be continuing our relationship with Alinma Bank and signing this flexible facility, which demonstrates continued confidence in the Group and our strategy. The first debt arrangement was important in realizing our strategic acquisitions in KSA last year, whereas the new facility will further enhance our strong cash position and optimise the cost of funding for our business activities."
