Feb. 14 (Bloomberg) -- PT Chandra Asri, an Indonesian petrochemical producer, is trying to attract an additional three banks to its $150 million loan, according to a person familiar with the matter.

The seven-year facility was signed in November and arranged by DBS Bank Ltd., HSBC Holdings Plc and Standard Chartered Plc, according to data compiled by Bloomberg. The loan, which pays a margin of 600 basis points, later attracted PT Bank Danamon Indonesia, the data show.

Jakarta-based Chandra Asri subsequently asked the arrangers to consider the involvement of another three lenders after those banks expressed an interest in joining the facility, the person said today, declining to elaborate. The potential three new banks will be given about a month to process credit approvals, the person said.
