Kosmos Energy Announces Amendment and Restatement of Corporate Revolving Credit Facility


(NYSE/LSE: KOS) announced today an amendment and restatement
of its corporate revolving credit facility. Three significant objectives
were achieved:

  • Borrowing capacity remains at $400 million
  • Date of maturity has been extended by approximately three and one-half
    years to May 31, 2022, and
  • Facility costs have been lowered from LIBOR plus a six percent margin
    to LIBOR plus a five percent margin

"The amendment and extension to our corporate revolving credit facility
enhances our already strong liquidity position. The improvement in terms
reflects the growth and quality of our production base and the continued
long-term support we have received from our banks is an affirmation of
our strong relationships and track-record for financial prudence," said
Thomas P. Chambers, senior vice president and chief financial officer.
