"Building on our strong earnings and cash performance in Q1 this gives KBR significant capital deployment flexibility at an opportune time. Further, it reflects our resilience, improved overall financial outlook and transformed and de-risked business mix," said Stuart Bradie, KBR president and CEO.
KBR has replaced its $500 million Performance Letter of Credit (PLOC) capacity with Revolving Credit Facility (RCF) capacity under its existing Credit Agreement. The change in business has included the recently announced exit from lump-sum EPC, and improvement in its corporate credit ratings.
The PLOC to RCF replacement has enabled all capacity formerly available under the PLOC to effectively convert, which will increase RCF capacity from $500 million to $1 billion, with no change to RCF rates. Aggregate capacity under the Credit Agreement remains unchanged at $1.795 billion.
"This marks another milestone in our capital structure evolution," added Bradie.
