Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings today announced it has amended and extended the majority of its operating credit facility consisting of its senior secured revolving credit facility and senior secured term loan A facility on December 6, 2022.
The amendment has resulted in the extension of maturities of approximately $1.4 billion of the Operating Credit Facility by one year to January 2025, according to a press release.
The Company is actively pursuing alternatives to address the remaining debt associated with the Operating Credit Facility that will otherwise mature in January 2024.
“We are pleased to have successfully amended and extended the majority of our Operating Credit Facility by one year to 2025,” said Mark A. Kempa, executive vice president and chief financial officer of Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings Ltd. “As part of this amendment, we were able to modify certain financial covenants and secure additional debt capacity of $1.5 billion, including approximately $0.5 billion of secured debt capacity. While we continue to believe our ongoing and organic cash generation provides a path to restore our balance sheet over time, the increase in debt capacity provides meaningful additional financial flexibility, if needed, as we prepare for multiple scenarios in an uncertain macroeconomic environment.”
The Operating Credit Facility consists of the $875.0 million senior secured revolving credit facility and the senior secured term loan A facility with an outstanding principal amount of approximately $1.5 billion as of September 30, 2022. Additional details on the terms of the amendment can be found in the Company’s Current Report on Form 8-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on December 9, 2022.
