Pengrowth Announces the Extension of Its Credit Facility

Calgary, Alberta, CANADA

CALGARY, Alberta, March 25, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Pengrowth Energy Corporation (“Pengrowth” or the “Company”) (TSX:PGF, OTCQX:PGHEF), today announced that it has reached arrangements for the extension of the maturity date under its secured revolving credit facility (the “Credit Facility”) through September 30, 2019, subject to certain terms.

The Company’s $330 million Credit Facility (all amounts in Canadian dollars) is provided by a broad syndicate of domestic and international banks and had a scheduled maturity of March 31, 2019. The Company has executed an extension agreement (the “Extension Agreement”) to its Credit Facility, supported by 100% of the lenders in the syndicate, providing for the extension of the maturity date under the Credit Facility to September 30, 2019, by way of an initial extension to July 29, 2019 and two subsequent extensions to August 29, 2019 and to September 30, 2019, respectively, each of which will automatically become effective unless lenders with at least two thirds of the total commitments under the Credit Facility provide notice to the Company that such automatic extension will not apply in advance of the automatic extension dates.

The extension of the Credit Facility will provide support to Pengrowth while it undertakes its previously-announced process to explore and develop strategic alternatives with a view to strengthening the Company’s balance sheet, addressing upcoming debt maturities, and maximizing enterprise value.
