AAR Finalizes $140M Senior, Unsecured Bank Facility
WOOD DALE, Ill., /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- AAR (NYSE: AIR) today announced that the Company has closed on a senior, unsecured revolving credit facility. The facility has an initial limit of $140 million and can be increased to $175 million under certain circumstances. The new agreement has a term of four years and an interest rate fluctuating between LIBOR plus 125 and 200 basis points based on certain financial measurements. LaSalle Bank N. A. is the lead bank in the syndicate of banks making this credit line available to AAR. This new financing replaces the Company's $30 million secured revolving credit facility, which has been cancelled, and its $50 million accounts receivable securitization facility, which will be cancelled over the next 90 days.
"Our improved financial performance and outlook have allowed us to simplify our capital structure, replacing multiple secured credit facilities with one unsecured facility that has more attractive terms and pricing," said Timothy J. Romenesko, Vice President and Chief Financial Officer of AAR. "The new facility provides us with even greater financial flexibility and availability of funds to grow our business and position the Company for the future."
