Waga Energy, a leader in renewable natural gas production on landfills, signed an inaugural €100 million corporate syndicated loan with a consortium of 5 banking groups. The syndicated loan, with a 3-year maturity extendible to 5 years, will enable the acceleration of the international development of Waga Energy notably in the United States, and will strengthen the Group’s financial structure.

This loan labelled as “green” will be used to finance projects that make a substantial contribution to climate change mitigation, in compliance with the European green taxonomy, and in line with decarbonization challenges. This transaction was largely oversubscribed by a pool of 5 institutions: Groupe BPCE (Natixis, Banque Populaire Auvergne Rhône Alpes, Caisse d’Épargne Rhône Alpes), Groupe Crédit Agricole (Crédit Agricole CIB, Crédit Agricole Sud Rhône Alpes, Crédit Agricole Centre France, Crédit Lyonnais), Arkéa Banque Entreprises & Institutionnels, BNP Paribas and Société Générale.

Natixis is acting as Documentation Agent and Loan Agent while Crédit Agricole CIB and Crédit Agricole Sud Rhône Alpes act as “green” coordinators.  Jean-Michel Thibaud the group’s Chief Financial Officer and Deputy Chief Executive Officer declared, “Raising this financing at the level of the Group parent company illustrates the confidence of our banking partners in the project steered by Waga Energy to serve energy transition. It further reinforces our balance sheet and confirms the strength of our business model based on the construction and operation of assets generating highly predictable cash flows.”
