- An option to increase the aggregate size of the facility by at least $250 million with additional commitments;
- No change in pricing terms or commitment fees to the existing facility; and,
- Maturity of the credit facility is extended to December 7, 2021.
“We are pleased to announce this expansion and two-year extension of our credit facility under favorable credit terms,” said Glenn Coleman, Integra’s Chief Financial Officer. “This new agreement strengthens our balance sheet and provides increased financial flexibility to pursue our long-term growth strategy.”
