Gear Energy Ltd. : Announces Successful Completion of Annual Borrowing Base Redetermination and May Update to Shareholders

06/23/2021 | 05:55pm EDT

CALGARY, AB, June 23, 2021 /CNW/ - Gear Energy Ltd. ("Gear") (TSX: GXE) is pleased to announce that it has successfully completed its annual borrowing base redetermination with the maturity date extending to May 27, 2023.

Annual Borrowing Base Redetermination

Over the last year and a half, Gear has focused on substantially improving its balance sheet. This has translated into continuous and significant debt reductions which have provided Gear with top decile leverage metrics in its peer group. The existing and estimated future improvements to Gear's leverage scenario are expected to allow Gear to contemplate multiple strategic options for enhancing shareholder value. These options include (but are not limited to) buying back shares, paying dividends, pursuing mergers and acquisitions, and investing in incremental growth. With Gear's forecasted free funds from operations through the remainder of the year continuing to reduce debt, Gear and its lenders have agreed to a gradual reduction of its borrowing base which will reduce Gear's standby fees. Gear's borrowing base will be structured with a declining balance as follows:

March 2021


June 2021


September 2021


May 2022


Gear is forecast to be drawn $38 million on its credit facilities on June 30, 2021.

May Update to Shareholders

The new May 2021 monthly update can be accessed via the following link https://gearenergy.com/updates/. Future updates will be disseminated each month via press release.
