Seven Generations' Lenders Extend $850 Million Credit Facility

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwired - June 1, 2016) - Seven Generations Energy Ltd.'s (TSX:VII) lenders have renewed and extended the company's $850 million credit facility following a scheduled redetermination of its borrowing base.

"We appreciate the ongoing support from our lending syndicate of 10 financial institutions. In the past six months, we have increased our reserves, the basis for our borrowing capacity, and have improved our financial strength as we continue to grow production and cash flow from our Kakwa River Project," said Chris Law, Chief Financial Officer at Seven Generations.

The credit facility was extended by one year to May 2019 and is subject to a semi-annual redetermination in the fall and spring of each year. At the end of the first quarter of 2016, Seven Generations had approximately $1.3 billion of available funding, which included amounts available under the credit facility.
