Luby's Signs Commitment Letter To Extend Maturity Date On Credit Agreement

HOUSTON, July 27, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Luby's, Inc. (NYSE: LUB) announced today that it has signed a commitment letter to extend its credit agreement for three years. The maturity date of the $50 million facility will now be September 2014. The agreement is expected to be executed in final form prior to September 1, 2011, subject to customary closing conditions.

Chris Pappas, President and CEO, remarked, "By extending our credit agreement we continue to have flexibility to grow our organization. I would like to thank our banks for their confidence in our demonstrated ability to generate free cash flow and pay down outstanding debt.  As of July 26, 2011 , we had $29 million outstanding under our credit agreement, which is a pay down of $22.3 million of the $51.3 million we borrowed to complete the acquisition of Fuddruckers, one year from the closing of that transaction."
