Funding & debt facility

The Company has a £900 million revolving credit facility (“RCF”) in order to maintain a good level of liquidity for further investment whilst minimising returns dilution from holding excessive cash balances.

The RCF, which was refinanced in July 2022, comprises a base facility of £600 million and commitments under an accordion facility of £300 million. The RCF matures in November 2026.

The new facility is a sustainability-linked RCF; it includes stretching targets across Environmental, Social and Governance themes aligned with the Company’s purpose. Performance against these targets will adjust the margin for the subsequent year.
