Evraz Borrows to Refinance

Evraz said its North American division agreed to borrow as much as $610 million to refinance loans as it seeks to reduce debt costs.

The five-year revolving credit facility will replace two loans of $225 million and 300 million Canadian dollars ($294 million), Evraz said Wednesday.

Evraz, which reported debt of $7.2 billion at the end of September, is refinancing loans as it seeks to expand while protecting credit ratings.

The company agreed to pay interest at 1.5 percent to 2 percent over the London interbank offered rate, compared with current rates of 3.25 percent and 4.25 percent, the company said.
