WhiteHorse Capital is pleased to announce it acted as the sole lender and agent on a new senior secured credit facility to US Methanol to refinance existing debt, provide cash to the balance sheet, and pay related fees and expenses.

Production at the plant began in September 2022, with an initial target production of 580 metric tons per day, and expansion plans in place.
“The WhiteHorse Capital team was a great financial partner throughout the transaction. We were impressed by their flexible and relationship-focused approach and ability to tailor the transaction structure to meet our needs”, said Mike Walsh, CEO of US Methanol.
John Yeager, Managing Director at WhiteHorse Capital, added, “We are excited to partner with KKCG and the US Methanol team to support the growth and success of the plant.”
