Largo Resources Ltd. (“Largo” or the “Company”) (TSX: LGO) (OTCQX: LGORF) is pleased to announce that it has prepaid in full all of its outstanding credit facilities in Brazil that were scheduled to mature on March 12 and March 18, 2021, respectively.
The Company completed the prepayment of $24.8 million in aggregate principal amount between the dates of January 29 and February 3, 2021, plus accrued and unpaid interest and all exit fees which were paid at a lower rate than the scheduled interest payable to the end of the maturity dates.
Paulo Misk, President and Chief Executive Officer of Largo, stated : “Largo’s financial position remains strong following the full repayment of the Company’s outstanding credit facilities. After a successful transition year in 2020, which included bringing sales and trading in-house whilst navigating the impacts of the global COVID-19 pandemic, Largo has built up its working capital position to a normalized level and the Company accordingly deemed the credit facilities surplus to its liquidity needs. The Company is now debt-free and we look forward to advancing our strategic growth initiatives with Largo Clean Energy in addition to further fortifying our position as the industry leading source of high-quality vanadium with our VPURE™ and VPURE+™ products.” He continued: “We expect 2021 to be an exceptional year for the Company as we look to deliver on our increased annual production and sales targets. Additionally, vanadium prices continue to strengthen in all main markets on the back of robust demand and low inventories. We also believe that the fast-growing renewable energy storage market is expected to significantly drive additional demand growth of vanadium redox flow batteries in the years to come.”
