Teekay Looks to CEXIM to Finance Vessels

New York-listed Teekay Corporation has entered into a Framework Cooperation Agreement with The Export-Import Bank of China (CEXIM) for up to USD 1 billion in new loan facilities.

Such loan facilities would be made available to Teekay and its subsidiaries, including Teekay LNG Partners L.P., Teekay Offshore Partners L.P. and Teekay Tankers Ltd., to finance the construction or conversion of vessels from shipyards in China over the next three years.

“We are very pleased to announce the signing of this framework agreement in Beijing, China as it further strengthens our existing relationship with CEXIM and represents yet another source of capital for the Teekay group,” commented Vince Lok, Teekay Corporation’s Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer.

“We anticipate that the shipyards in China will become an increasingly important supplier of vessels for Teekay, as we have seen recently with the construction of Teekay Offshore’s Units for Maintenance and Safety in China.”

The CEXIM loan facilities are yet to be approved by CEXIM and are subject to customary closing conditions and the execution of satisfactory documentation.
