Chartwell Advises Chemonics on Refinancing of Senior Debt

September 2022

Chartwell is pleased to announce that Chemonics International, Inc. has successfully completed a refinancing of its existing senior debt credit facility. The new facility provides Chemonics (the “Company”) with significant financial flexibility and capacity to support its new business initiatives and long-term strategic plans. Chartwell acted as the exclusive financial advisor to Chemonics, providing counsel to the senior management team on all facets of the transaction.

In the refinancing, Truist and Citibank are the senior lenders to Chemonics and provide the capital to support the Company’s growth initiatives through a cash-flow based revolving credit facility that maximizes operating flexibility. Additionally, Chemonics has access to incremental capital through an accordion feature that allows the Company to upsize the revolving credit facility to further finance organic and inorganic opportunities in support of its strategic objectives.
