GFL Environmental Successfully Reprices its Senior Secured Term Loan


VAUGHAN, ON, Sept. 25, 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 US$729.0 million senior secured term loan to reduce its borrowing rate to SOFR + 250 basis points from the previous SOFR + 300 basis points, plus 10 basis points CSA, resulting in a total borrowing rate reduction of 60 basis points.

"Our ability to reprice our senior secured term loan on the tightest pricing terms since 2021 for a company with our credit rating is a testament to the improvement in our credit quality and the support of our high quality long standing institutional debt investors, many of whom have been with us for over a decade," said Patrick Dovigi, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of GFL. "This transaction will result in approximately $6 million in annualized interest savings which should not only increase free cash flow but also position us well for future credit rating upgrades."
