Trico Announces Completion of New Senior Secured Credit Facility

Friday, February 13, 2004
Trico Marine Services, Inc. has closed its previously announced refinancing of its existing U.S. revolving credit facility ("U.S. Dollar Facility"). The Company refinanced the U.S. Dollar Facility to relieve the Company of the maintenance debt covenants under that existing facility and to add operating flexibility. The Company's new $55 million senior secured credit facility ("New Credit Facility") is secured by 43 supply vessels. The New Credit Facility is a floating rate facility, was priced at a 600 basis point spread over LIBOR with base rate of LIBOR not less than 2.0%, has an original issue discount of 2.0% and is subject to incurrence-based covenants. The net proceeds from the New Credit Facility are approximately $51.4 million after deducting the original issue discount and estimated offering expenses. Net proceeds from the New Credit Facility will be used to retire and repay indebtedness of $31.0 million aggregate principal under the U.S. Dollar Facility, collateralize a letter of credit facility and for general corporate purposes. The New Credit Facility has a maturity of February 2009 and will have two years of call protection. In addition to extending the maturity for the Company's credit facility, the refinancing will also provide incremental available liquidity.
