D.R. Horton, Inc. (NYSE:DHI), America’s Builder, announced that it has entered into a five-year $125 million senior unsecured revolving credit facility with The Royal Bank of Scotland plc. The facility has an uncommitted $375 million accordion feature which could increase the facility to $500 million, subject to certain conditions and availability of additional bank commitments. The facility includes a letter of credit sublimit equal to 50% of the revolving credit commitment, for an initial sublimit of $62.5 million.
