LKQ Corporation To Amend Senior Secured Credit Facility

CHICAGO, April 29, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- LKQ Corporation (Nasdaq:LKQ) today announced that it is in discussions with certain of its lenders and other parties concerning proposed changes to its existing credit facility, which changes, if agreed to by its lenders, are expected to include, among other things, an increase in the aggregate amount available under LKQ's credit agreement from $1.4 billion to approximately $1.7 billion ($1.25 billion under the revolving credit facility and $450 million of term loan availability). The Company expects the pricing of the amended facility to be similar to the existing facility and anticipates modest modifications to the covenants which could provide the Company with additional operating flexibility.

These discussions are still ongoing, so there are no assurances that these discussions will be successful or that a definitive amendment will be executed or that our credit facility will be increased or extended or as to the specific terms of any amendment. The proposed amendment is subject to market and other customary conditions and is expected to be consummated in May 2013.
