Xcel Energy Inc. secured a $500 million, 364-day term loan Dec. 3 to pay down borrowings and terminate the existing and expiring $500 million term loan.
The new credit facility has one covenant, requiring Xcel Energy to maintain a consolidated funded debt to total capitalization ratio less than or equal to 65%.
The new facility has interest rate options of either the Eurodollar rate plus a margin of 50 basis points or an "alternate base rate," according to a Dec. 6 filing. It matures Dec. 1, 2020, with an option to extend the maturity for another 364 days.
