G3 Global Holdings Limited Partnership, a joint venture between Saudi Agricultural & Livestock Investment Company, Bunge Limited, G3 and its subsidiary, G3 Terminal Vancouver Limited Partnership, have each entered into a 5-year delayed draw credit facility for an aggregate principal amount of C$900 million. The facilities may be increased by an additional C$200 million, in aggregate. 

The proceeds of the loans under the credit facilities will be used to support and fund the on-going growth of G3’s network in Western Canada, including the development of new primary elevators by G3 Canada Limited and the construction and operation of G3 Terminal Vancouver’s  grain export terminal in North Vancouver, British Columbia, previously announced by G3 Terminal Vancouver in 2016.
