Vale SA said June 9 that it secured a US$2 billion syndicated revolving credit facility, which will be available for five years.

The syndicate also includes ABN AMRO, Bank of Montreal, Deutsche, Mizuho, Sumitomo, UniCredit Bank, HSBC, Industrial and Commercial Bank of China, JPMorgan, Société Générale, Standard Chartered, BNP Paribas, The Bank of Tokyo-Mitsubishi UFJ and Natixis.
