STAMFORD, Conn., Nov. 24, 2017 /PRNewswire/ – Rain Carbon Inc. (“RCI“) announced today its intention to raise new senior secured credit facilities, comprising of a €390.0 million term loan B facility (the “New Term Loan B Facility“) and a $150.0 million revolving credit facility (the “New Revolving Credit Facility“, and together the New Term Loan B Facility, the “New Senior Credit Facilities“). RCI intends to use the proceeds of the New Term Loan B Facility to finance the redemption of Rain CII Carbon LLC’s (“RCC“) outstanding 8.25% U.S. dollar-denominated Senior Secured Notes due 2021 and RCC’s outstanding 8.50% Euro-denominated Senior Secured Notes due 2021 (the “RCC Notes“). RCI also intends to use cash on hand to redeem a portion of the outstanding RCC Notes. The New Revolving Credit Facility will replace RCI’s existing revolving credit facility, and is expected to be undrawn on the closing date of the New Senior Credit Facilities. 

The consummation and actual terms of the New Senior Credit Facilities are subject to a number of factors, including market conditions, negotiation and execution of definitive documents and satisfaction of customary closing conditions. The terms of the New Senior Credit Facilities could differ materially from those outlined above and there can be no assurance that RCI will enter into the New Senior Credit Facilities or that RCI will redeem the RCC Notes.  Any notices of redemption that RCC submits with respect to the RCC Notes will be conditional upon the consummation of the New Senior Credit Facilities and the raising of an amount under the New Term Loan B Facility that is sufficient to fund the redemption of the RCC Notes.

This press release shall not constitute an offer to sell or a solicitation of an offer to purchase the RCC Notes or any other loans or securities.

Global $83.7 Million Chlorine Compressors (Liquid Ring Compressors, Centrifugal Compressors) Market to 2025


Global $83.7 Million Chlorine Compressors (Liquid Ring Compressors, Centrifugal Compressors) Market to 2025

PR Newswire

DUBLIN, November 24, 2017 /PRNewswire/ —

The “Chlorine Compressors Market Analysis By Product (Liquid Ring Compressors, Centrifugal Compressors), By Region (North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, CSA, MEA), And Segment Forecasts, 2014 – 2025” report has been added to Research and Markets’ offering.

Research and Markets Logo

The global chlorine compressors market is expected to reach USD 83.7 million by 2025

Chlor-alkali products have been witnessed a rising demand in various end-use industries. This is in turn expected to foster the demand for chlorine compressors over the forecast period. Chlorine is an integral part of chemical industry, being an important basic inorganic chemical along with fluorine and bromine.

Chemical leasing is expected to be a plausible restraint for chlorine industry in the near future. In chemical leasing model, the responsibility of chemical manufacturers not only includes manufacturing chemicals, but also includes the manufacturer is also responsible for its disposal. Chemical leasing was introduced with the help of the government of Austria and implemented in 2014 by the United Nations Industrial Development Organizations (UNIDO).

As per the UNIDO mandate, companies have to bear the cost of recycling the chemicals that they manufacture. By this process, the profit margins may decrease, which will eventually decrease the market size, thereby reducing the number of producers in the value chain. These regulations related to chlorine are likely to pose a challenge to chlorine compressor manufacturers.

Major market participants, such as Gardner Denver Nash LLC. and Mikuni Kikai Kogyo Co., Ltd., have established themselves as manufacturers and suppliers.

Further key findings from the report suggest:

  • The chlorine compressor market is expected to reach a demand of 6,466 units by 2025, growing at an estimated CAGR of 1.6% over the forecast period
  • The liquid ring compressor segment is expected to have the largest consumption in chlorine compressor market
  • Liquid ring compressors are expected to have a higher demand than centrifugal compressors owing to their ability to handle chlorine in liquid state
  • Asia Pacific is anticipated to hold the largest market share
  • Availability of a mature chlorine production infrastructure coupled with the proposed capacity addition to cater to PVC industry demand in Asia Pacific is expected to positively influence the demand for chlorine compressors in the coming years
  • The U.S. is expected to record the highest demand for chlorine compressors owing to the presence of mature chlor-alkali market over the forecast period
