Teekay Secures $1bln from Chinese Bank

September 30, 2015

 Teekay Corporation announced today it has entered into a framework cooperation agreement with the Export-Import Bank of China (CEXIM) for up to $1 billion in new loan facilities.

 
The loan facilities would be made available to Teekay and its subsidiaries, including Teekay LNG Partners L.P., Teekay Offshore Partners L.P. and Teekay Tankers Ltd., to finance the construction or conversion of vessels from shipyards in China over the next three years.
 
“We are very pleased to announce the signing of this framework agreement in Beijing, China as it further strengthens our existing relationship with CEXIM and represents yet another source of capital for the Teekay group,” said Vince Lok, Teekay Corporation's Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer. “We anticipate that the shipyards in China will become an increasingly important supplier of vessels for Teekay, as we have seen recently with the construction of Teekay Offshore's Units for Maintenance and Safety in China.”
 
The CEXIM loan facilities are subject to approvals by CEXIM, customary closing conditions and the execution of satisfactory documentation.
