Committed Credit Facility

In November 2012 Syngenta negotiated a US$1.5 billion committed, revolving, multi-currency, syndicated credit facility. In 2014, the credit facility was extended by one year and will now mature in 2019. The Credit Facility provides for fixed interest rate, multi-currency short-term borrowings, with the interest rate based on LIBOR.

In January 2016, the terms of Syngenta’s $1.5 billion committed, revolving, multi-currency syndicated credit facility were amended to enable Syngenta to establish an additional $1 billion committed, syndicated facility. This additional facility was established in January 2016 and expires in 2019.
