Portfolio Recovery Associates Inc.
), a leading financial services company recently increased its
lenders' domestic revolving credit commitments by $35.5 million
to $633 million. On Dec 19, 2012, Portfolio Recovery entered into
a $597.5 million Credit Agreement with a group of banks.
As per the amendment, three new lenders viz. Bank of Hampton
Roads, Heritage Bank and Union First Market were added. Moreover,
three other lenders associated with the agreement, made
adjustments to their credit commitments.
The aggregate credit facility with a principal amount of $633
million now consists of a fully-funded term loan, a domestic
revolving credit facility and a multi-currency revolving credit
facility. The term loan is worth $197.5 million while domestic
revolving credit facility is of $415.5 million, which can be
fully drawn. The amount of multi-currency credit facility is $20
million, all of which is available for withdrawal. All the
three components of the credit facility under the Credit
Agreement are expected to mature on Dec 19, 2017.
Additionally last week Portfolio Recovery sold its $287.5 million
convertible senior notes that were scheduled to mature in 2020.
We believe that this amendment in the credit facility coupled
with closing of the senior notes will strengthen the financial
position of Portfolio Recovery and assist it to grasp any
forthcoming opportunity for growth.
