The syndication, made up of an enlarged group of thirteen banks, including existing and new banking partners, was led by Credit Agricole Corporate & Investment Bank and ING Bank N.V. in their roles as Bookrunner and Coordinator, and a core group of lead arrangers including BNP Paribas, Credit Suisse and Deutsche Bank.

“I am pleased that the outstanding support from our leading commodity banking partners affords the Group valuable lender diversity, which in turn will support our continued growth globally.
