There has been very strong interest received from a range of potential financiers, providing the Company with a strong degree of confidence that it will be capable of securing the required project funding package on favourable terms.
Cardinal’s Project Finance team is continuing to evaluate Indicative Term Sheets from a number of project financiers - traditional senior debt lenders to possible corporate scenarios.
