Vector Security Secures $450M Credit Facility to Finance Acquisitions, More
The credit facility will be used for working capital and corporate initiatives, to finance acquisitions and for repayment of existing debt.
PITTSBURGH — Vector Security has entered into a $450 million revolving credit facility, which took effect June 3. PNC Bank, National Association is the administrative agent on the deal.
PNC Capital Markets is sole bookrunner and joint lead arranger, with Bank of America and U.S. Bank acting as joint lead arrangers and syndication agents.
The new credit agreement includes a $150 million increase option subject to the terms and conditions outlined in the credit agreement. The credit agreement matures in June 2024 and provides Vector Security with a significant increase in its borrowing capacity with an improved structure and attractive interest rate options, according to an announcement.
Vector Security said it plans to use the proceeds of the credit agreement for repayment of its existing credit facility, for working capital purposes, to finance acquisitions such as the recently announced purchase of Nashville, Tenn.-based ADS Security and for general corporate purposes.
“Our history of consistent performance, positive industry reputation and a strong management team were the contributing factors leading to our ability to close on this new credit facility,” says Pam Petrow, president and CEO of Vector Security. “This new financing provides us the financial flexibility and additional liquidity to capitalize on expansion opportunities. Our recent purchase of ADS Security is a testament to the commitment from our company; and our lending partners in support of our growth initiatives.”
“We appreciate the continued support of PNC Bank and our syndicate banking partners,” says Chuck Thropp, Vector Security CFO. “The increased financial capacity enables Vector Security to have the financial resources to support our continued growth and to finance our strategic initiatives.”
PNC Bank, National Association and PNC Capital Markets are members of The PNC Financial Services Group (NYSE: PNC).
