Barnsley BSF – Phase Three Senior Refinancing

Nord & EIB funding

18th June 2019

DWPF acted as financial advisor to Barnsley SPV Three Ltd, the project company owned by Equitix, INPP, Barnsley Council, and the Barnsley LEP, on the refinancing of senior debt in this PFI project. Financial close was achieved on 18 June 2019.


The refinancing involved the project company taking advantage of reduced senior debt margins, whilst also increasing gearing. Nord increased its term commitment to enable repayment of Nationwide, with addition debt also drawn to fund the costs associated with the transaction. The EIB remains a lender to the project company.


This is the refinancing of the final phase of BSF transaction, following on from Phase One in December 2017 and Phase Two in April 2017. DWPF also provided financial advice to the sponsors on these transactions.
