HANOVER, Md., March 2, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- KEYW Corporation (Nasdaq:KEYW) is pleased to announce the closing of a new $50 million credit facility, with an accordion feature allowing for an additional $25 million in borrowing. The credit facility is a 3 year agreement and is structured as a multi-bank facility with Bank of America, N.A. being the lead bank. The borrowing availability under this facility is based on multiple of trailing EBITDA. KEYW expects to use borrowings under this facility to support working capital, capital expenditures, and general corporate purposes, including acquisitions. This facility replaces KEYW's $17.5 million credit facility with Bank of America, N.A.
"KEYW's strong financial position has enabled us to increase the size of our debt facility as we continue our pursuit of strategic acquisitions," commented John Krobath, Chief Financial Officer of KEYW. "The pace of interesting new acquisition opportunities presented to us has increased since our initial public offering last October. We are seeing new opportunities over a wide range of sizes each week and some are excellent potential fits for our strategic platform. We continue to be highly disciplined in our approach to acquisitions, focusing on both fit and value at prices that are accretive to our Company and investors. While we remain discriminating users of debt, this new facility ensures that we can continue to act quickly and decisively for the right opportunities."
