Mercer International Inc. announces completion of a new €300 million sustainability-linked term revolving credit facility

NEW YORK, NY, September 16, 2022

Mercer International Inc., or “Mercer”, (Nasdaq: MERC) today  announced that it has successfully entered into a new €300 million revolving credit facility for its German  subsidiaries with a syndicate of European banks (the “New Facility”). The New Facility has a five year term, is  unsecured and accrues interest at a rate of Euribor plus a stipulated margin.  

The New Facility is “sustainability linked” whereby if certain sustainability targets are achieved, there is  a reduction in the applicable interest rate. The sustainability-linked feature is consistent with Mercer’s long term  ESG objectives as validated by the Science Based Targets Initiative.  

The New Facility is available to Mercer’s German operating subsidiaries, including after closing of its  acquisition, HIT Holzindustrie Torgau GmbH & Co. KG and replaces Mercer’s current €200 million revolving  credit facility.  

In connection with the New Facility, Mercer was represented by Sangra Moller LLP.
