Greenbrier announces new $150M term loan
The Greenbrier Companies (NYSE:GBX) announced that its Greenbrier Leasing subsidiary has entered a new $150M term loan to finance the continued growth of its leasing fleet. The new loan is non-recourse to Greenbrier, matures in July 2027 and has terms similar to Greenbrier Leasing's term loan completed in August 2021. Half of the loan amount was drawn at closing and the remaining balance is expected to be utilized in the next six months. Interest rates on Greenbrier's long-term debt are fixed at attractive levels, with no material debt maturities until 2026. Strong liquidity, combined with new railcar backlog valued at $3.6B as of May 31, 2022, and continued high lease fleet utilization, positions Greenbrier well to navigate current macroeconomic conditions.
