MEG intends to refinance its existing term loan B and term loan D senior secured credit facilities and expand its senior secured revolving credit facilities from US$200 million to US$500 million, via an amendment of its existing credit agreement.

The transaction is expected to be completed concurrently with the senior notes offering.
