HS Orka has secured a US$210 million financing package with a group of leading European commercial lenders.

The new financing comprises a term loan, capex facility and revolving credit facility. HS Orka will use the facilities to pursue attractive development projects. The company had been exploring financing options to both refinance its existing facilities and support its long-term growth plans following the acquisition of the company in May 2019 by funds managed by Jarðvarmi and Ancala Partners.

Tomas Sigurðsson, CEO of HS Orka, commented: “We are happy to have finalized the refinancing process of HS Orka. The interest shown in participating from various financial institutions around Europe is a great testament to HS Orka´s strong position and future prospects. The involvement of shareholders and the experience they bring allowed the company to achieve a market-leading, low cost and flexible financing which supports further growth of the company in Iceland”

DC Advisory acted as financial adviser and Latham & Watkins and LOGOS acted as legal advisers to HS Orka.
