Pacific Drilling Announces Entry into Revolving Credit Agreement

(NYSE: PACD) (the “Company”) announced today that it has entered into a $50 million first lien superpriority revolving credit agreement with Angelo, Gordon Energy Servicer, LLC, as administrative agent and the lenders party thereto (the “Revolving Credit Agreement”). The Company expects to use any future borrowings under the Revolving Credit Agreement to finance working capital and capital expenditure needs.
The Company’s obligations under the Revolving Credit Agreement are guaranteed by all of the subsidiaries that guaranty the Company’s 8.375% First Lien Notes due 2023 (“First Lien Notes”) and 11.0/12.0% Second Lien PIK Notes due 2024 (together, the “Notes”).
