The company has applied a portion of the proceeds of the term loan to repay in full all outstanding amounts and terminate all commitments under Essar Steel Algoma’s current senior secured asset-based revolving credit facility.

Essar Steel Algoma Inc., based in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario, is a manufacturer of rolled steel products, including hot and cold rolled sheet and plate.
