Stocks in this article: GAP PAC

Grupo Aeroportuario del Pacífico, S.A.B. de C.V. (NYSE: PAC; BMV: GAP) (“the Company” or “GAP”) announced that, in-line with the Company’s debt strategy, effective December 5, 2012, GAP received the first disbursement of a line of credit for the Guadalajara, Los Cabos, Puerto Vallarta, Hermosillo and Guanajuato airports for a total of Ps. 287.8 million, established with BBVA BANCOMER, with the objective of reducing the Company’s long-term financing cost by lowering the interest rate differentials by 15 basis points.

The main objective of the above-mentioned line of credit is to prepay, without penalty, the debt contracted with Banco Nacional de México (BANAMEX) during 2011, thereby reducing the interest rate, exclusively for debt contracted during 2011, from a differential of 135 basis points above the 91-day TIIE to a differential of 120 basis points above the same TIIE rate.

The line of credit for each airport, as well as the disbursement dates (that correspond to the disbursement dates of the 2011 credit agreement) are as follows:
