Perth, Dec 6, 2019 AEST (ABN Newswire) - Altech Chemicals Ltd (ASX:ATC) (FRA:A3Y) has been successful in securing senior project debt finance of US$190 million from German government-owned KfW IPEX-Bank as senior lender, and has mandated Macquarie Bank (Macquarie) as the preferred mezzanine lender.

The indicative and non-binding mezzanine debt term sheet (currently progressing through due diligence) is for a facility amount of up to US$90 million and throughout this year the Company has focussed on managing the due diligence process. Macquarie appointed an independent technical advisor, Worley Parson, to conduct the project technical review which was completed over a period of 6 months and concluded with a positive report on the project and processing flowsheet.

Following the technical review Macquarie appointed CRU, a London commodities research house, to conduct a HPA market review. This detailed investigation into the HPA market took 3 months and the results showed significant growth expected for HPA demand and a near term supply deficit.
