Daniel W. Houser, ISC Senior Vice President and Chief Financial Officer, said, "We are pleased to be backed by such a strong bank group which is a testament to the Company's strong financial position.  Entering into this new credit facility is a significant step forward for ISC.  It provides us with tremendous flexibility to invest in the business and supports our strategic initiatives."

The Facility replaces ISC's $300 million revolving credit facility, which was scheduled to expire in June 2011.  The Company elected to enter into the Facility at this time to take advantage of favorable financial market conditions.
