PMC Commercial Trust Announces Amendment Of Its Revolving Credit Facility

DALLAS, June 13, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- PMC Commercial Trust (the "Company") (NYSE Amex: PCC) today announced the successful completion of an amendment and extension of its existing $30 million revolving credit facility that results in more favorable pricing and extends its maturity.  

The amendment provides for automatic increases in the borrowing availability under the facility beginning on January 1, 2012 to $35 million and on January 1, 2013 to $40 million, subject to certain conditions being met and also extends the facility's maturity date to June 30, 2014.  The amendment reduces the interest rate under the revolving credit facility.  Borrowings will continue to bear interest at a floating rate plus an applicable margin. The applicable margin for LIBOR borrowings decreased to 2.00% from 3.00% and the applicable margin for CB Floating Rate (typically the prime rate) borrowings decreased to -0.50% from 0.00%.  The amendment also results in an unsecured facility with less restrictive financial covenants.  

Lance B. Rosemore, Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer, stated "We are very pleased with the amendment and extension of our credit facility.  We are confident that the reduced interest rate and extended term of our credit facility will strengthen our profitability by reducing the cost of our capital and allow us to continue to pursue our SBA 7(a) lending strategy.  The extended maturity to June 2014 allows the Company flexibility that we did not have previously."
