PIRAEUS, Greece, May 28, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Aegean Marine Petroleum Network Inc. (NYSE: ANW) (" Aegean" or the " Company") today announced the launch of the syndication on a best efforts basis of its Secured Multicurrency Revolving Credit Facilities (the " Facilities"). To date, USD 800 million has been subscribed, subject to satisfactory legal documentation, by eight banks that are experienced in commodity and trade finance.

  • Tranche A – a USD 100 million 364-day Secured Committed Multicurrency Borrowing Base Revolving Credit Facility;
  • Tranche B – a USD 100 million 2-year Secured Committed Multicurrency Borrowing Base Revolving Credit Facility; and
  • Tranche C – a USD 600 million Secured Uncommitted Multicurrency Borrowing Base Revolving Credit Facility.

"We appreciate the interest of our lenders and their confidence in our ability to execute our strategy, which is focused on achieving profitable revenue growth and increased global market share," said E. Nikolas Tavlarios, President. "We have significantly enhanced our financial flexibility and we believe our strong financial position is a key competitive advantage.
