GFL Environmental Successfully Completes Refinancing Initiatives


VAUGHAN, ON, Jan. 31, 2023 /PRNewswire/ - GFL Environmental Inc. (NYSE: GFL) (TSX: GFL) ("GFL" or the "Company"), a leading North American diversified environmental services company, today announced that it has amended its term loans as part of its strategy to create long-term value by reducing its cost of capital, pursuing opportunistic financings to fund its growth and preserving leverage, with a view to increasing its free cash flow. 

GFL has amended its senior secured term loan to extend the maturity date by two years to May 31, 2027 and to transition the remainder of the loan from a LIBOR-based interest benchmark to a SOFR-based interest benchmark. The senior secured loan was refinanced on more favourable pricing terms, resulting in a reduction in the Company's cost of capital. GFL also amended its revolving credit facility to increase the term loan portion by $275.0 million on existing terms. The proceeds from the increased loan will be used for general corporate purposes and to fund acquisitions. Following the completion of these initiatives, the Company expects to maintain its current credit rating profile and leverage within previously stated ranges.

" Our ability to successfully complete these refinancing initiatives on such favourable terms in the current market is a testament to the support of our long-standing group of institutional debt investors," said Patrick Dovigi, Founder and CEO of GFL. "We have worked very hard to build the trust of these investors who have supported us in our growth strategies, allowing us to continue to pursue our goal of creating long-term value for all stakeholders." Mr. Dovigi concluded, "I look forward to sharing with investors our year end results and expectations for 2023 and providing an update on our other strategic initiatives during our earnings call on February 22, 2023."
