STATE COLLEGE, Pa., April 1, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Rex Energy Corporation (Nasdaq:REXX) announced today that it has entered into an amended and restated credit agreement to expand its borrowing base under the company's senior secured credit facility from $240 million to $325 million. In addition, the company has extended the maturity of the senior secured credit facility from September 2015 to March 2018. Commitments by the bank group under the facility were raised from $240 million to $300 million, a 25% increase. The $300 million commitment level can be increased to $325 million at the company's request for additional bank commitments.

"We appreciate the confidence and support of our bank group. The increased borrowing base improves upon our already strong liquidity position and further enhances our ability to execute on our business plan."
