Plug Power Inc. (NASDAQ: PLUG), a leading provider of hydrogen engines and fueling solutions enabling e-mobility, and Generate Capital have agreed to increase its term loan facility and reduce the interest rate. The term facility will be increased by $100M and the interest rate will be reduced to 9.5% from 12% for the entire facility. Plug Power has drawn an incremental $50M, and an additional $50M of borrowing capacity is available to be drawn based on mutual agreement. The maturity of the loan has been extended to October 2025 from October 2022.

“We are pleased to continue to work and expand this facility with our longstanding partner, Generate Capital,” said Andy Marsh, CEO for Plug Power. “In addition, we are pleased with the reduction in the interest rate as Plug Power has continued to deliver revenue and EBITDA growth.
