1MDB is pleased to announce that its subsidiary, Plenitude Mentari Sdn. Bhd., has repaid in full, all the principal and interest, for the RM950 million Standby Credit Facility provided by its ultimate shareholder, the Government of Malaysia. This facility was entered into on 27 February 2015, further to the strategic review announced on 18 February 2015, as a direct response to the cash-flow mismatch faced by the company.
The Standby Credit Facility helped to stabilise the company, at a time when it was under severe attack from multiple parties and had no other financing options. With the stability, 1MDB and MoF Inc. were then able to develop and implement the rationalisation plan, the success of which has resulted in the Standby Credit Facility being repaid in full.
