("PIP" or the "Company")


Update on credit facility


Pantheon International Plc is pleased to announce that it has agreed an amendment and extension to its £300m multi-currency revolving credit facility agreement ("Loan Facility") that expires in June 2022. The terms of the amended facility agreement are materially the same as those of the existing facility; the amended facility comprises a £225m tranche that expires in May 2024 and a £75m tranche that expires in June 2022. In addition, the amended agreement allows the Company flexibility to increase its committed facilities to £350m through additional facilities.

The Loan Facility remains undrawn. PIP's mature portfolio, which at 31 May 2020 was reported to have an average fund vintage maturity of 5.1 years, is in a cash generative phase. The Company expects to continue to finance its new investments and meet its unfunded commitments, amounting to £493m as at 30 September 2020, principally from internally generated cash resources. As at 30 September 2020, PIP had available cash balances of £123m. Therefore, based on current exchange rates, PIP's total liquid financial resources, taking into account the terms of the new Loan Facility and 30 September 2020 available cash balances, are equivalent to £424m.

Commenting on the Loan Facility, Sir Laurie Magnus, Chairman of PIP, said: "The Board is pleased to have secured this amendment to the Loan Facility, particularly in the current challenging economic conditions. PIP's strong balance sheet means that the Company is able comfortably to finance its unfunded commitments while remaining alert to compelling new investment opportunities as they arise."
