Gerald Group ("Gerald”), the world’s largest independent, employee-owned metals trading house is pleased to have successfully executed its tenth annual Revolving Credit Facility (“RCF”) for US$
253.5 million.

The syndication, made up of an enlarged group of thirteen banks, including existing and new banking partners, was led by Credit Agricole Corporate & Investment Bank and ING Bank N.V. in their roles as Bookrunner and Coordinator, and a core group of lead arrangers including BNP Paribas, Credit Suisse and Deutsche Bank.

“I am pleased that the outstanding support from our leading commodity banking partners affords the Group valuable lender diversity, which in turn will support our continued growth globally. We have to thank Credit Agricole Corporate & Investment Bank and ING and all the banks that participated, for their continued support and confidence in Gerald,” said Craig Dean, Gerald Group’s Chairman and Chief Executive Officer.
