Extension of Revolving Credit Facility

 

Micro Focus International plc ("Micro Focus" or "the Company") is pleased to announce the revision and extension of its revolving credit facility ("RCF") to June 2024.

In extending the facility, the Board has taken the opportunity to review the Group's borrowing requirements in the light of the strong cash generation of the business. The Board has elected to repay the $175 million of the RCF which was previously drawn as a precautionary measure in March 2020, and has reduced the size of the RCF to $350 million. These actions reduce the Company's gross debt and costs associated with the facility.

As at 31 August 2020, the Group had cash and cash equivalents of approximately $700 million, which combined with the extended facility provides the Group with total liquidity of approximately $1,050 million, with no maturity dates on Group facilities prior to June 2024.
