The note issuance and previously announced increase and extension of the Group’s existing senior debt facility is said to, “increase the weighted average debt maturity from 1.7 years as at 31 December 2020 to 3.2 years as at 30 June 2021.”

Peet also said the impact will be to “reduce the weighted average cash cost of debt, on a proforma basis as at 31 December 2020, from 7.3% to 6.1%.”

“together with the previously announced increase and extension of the Group’s senior debt facility, provides additional tenor to the Company’s debt maturity profile.”
