Newmont Mining Corporation Analyst Notes
On April 1, 2014, Newmont Mining Corporation (Newmont) announced the closing of its previously announced five-year, amortizing term loan of $575 million which will be used to repay the debt maturing in July 2014. The Company also renewed its $3.0 billion corporate revolving credit facility, extending the maturity date two years to March 31, 2019. Commenting on the development, Laurie Brlas, Executive Vice President and CFO, said, "The term loan allows us to repay the 2014 maturities and provides the flexibility to reduce debt over the coming years. Extending the maturity of our revolving credit facility ultimately enhances our corporate liquidity profile." Both bank facilities are unsecured and include a single financial covenant requiring a net-debt-to-capitalization ratio below 0.63. As of December 31, 2013, the Company's leverage ratio, as defined, was 0.29. The full analyst notes on Newmont Mining Corporation are available to download free of charge at:
