TAMPA, Fla., Dec. 3, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Walter Investment Management Corp. (NYSE MKT: WAC) ("Walter Investment" or the "Company") today announced that it completed the refinancing of its senior secured debt.

Credit Suisse Securities ( USA) LLC, Morgan Stanley Senior Funding, Inc. and BofA Merrill Lynch assisted the Company with the execution of a senior secured first lien term loan facility in the aggregate principal amount of $700 million and a senior secured revolving credit facility in the aggregate principal amount of $125 million. The facilities bear interest at a rate per annum equal to, LIBOR plus 4.50%, with a LIBOR "floor" of 1.25% and mature on November 28, 2017.
