NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Waters said today in a document filed with the US Securities and Exchange Commission that it entered into an Incremental Commitment Agreement to increase its revolving facility to $900 million from $700 million.
The Incremental Commitment Agreement is associated with a $1 billion credit agreement that Waters entered into with various lenders last year. The original agreement provided the company with a five-year, unsecured $300 million term loan facility and a $700 million revolving facility. The agreement allows Waters to request increases in commitments from lenders of no less than $25 million up to an aggregate additional amount of $250 million.
The term loan facility and the revolving facilities mature on July 28, 2016. JP Morgan Chase Bank was the administrative agent on the credit agreement, and JP Morgan Europe was the London agent.
