In conjunction with the two-stage extension of the maturity date of the DBS RCF to June 30, 2024, Keppel Corporation entered into a further agreement with DBS on Dec 30 to extend the term of the bilateral contract with DBS for the same period.

The agreement was made to continue Keppel Corporation’s support of KrisEnergy’s efforts to effect a consensual debt restructuring plan and to continue to make liquidity available to KrisEnergy to fund the group’s on-going expenses and thereby, retain the possibility of a successful financial restructuring, it says.

As at Dec 31, about US$185 million ($245.0 million) in outstanding principal is owed by KrisEnergy under the DBS RCF.
