Ferguson PLC said Thursday that its liquidity has increased to $800 million after it carried out a series of financing transactions, and that it will use the additional liquidity for general working purposes.

The New York and London-listed supplier of plumbing and heating products said it has agreed to a new $500 million syndicated three-year bank term loan credit line, which matures in 2025.

The company said it has also increased its existing receivables securitization facility by $300 million to $1.1 billion, and increased its current revolving credit line to $1.35 billion from $1.1 billion.

Ferguson said it reduced its existing 364-day bilateral revolving facility to $250 million from $500 million, and that this matures in March, 2023.

"This additional liquidity demonstrates the continued confidence in our business model and provides additional flexibility to continue to invest in our capital priorities," the company said.

Shares in London at 1054 GMT were down 74 pence, or 0.8%, at 9,588 pence.
