Wilmar International Ltd. (WIL), the world’s biggest palm-oil processing company, is in talks with banks to extend a $614 million revolving credit facility for another 12 months, according to a person familiar with the matter.

The facility, part of a larger three-part loan, was signed last year and matures in April, the person said, asking not to be identified because the details are private. Most of Wilmar’s relationship banks are expected to agree to the extension, the person said.
