CHICAGO, May 6, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- LKQ Corporation (Nasdaq:LKQ) announced that it closed on May 3, 2013 an amendment to its credit facility that increased the aggregate amount available thereunder from $1.4 billion to $1.8 billion ($1.35 billion under the revolving credit facility and $450 million of term loan availability). Pricing under the amended facility remains substantially the same as prior to the amendment. The amended facility includes modest modifications to the covenants that provide the Company with additional operating flexibility. The amended facility matures in May 2018.

"We are pleased to complete the amendment to our credit facility and appreciate the confidence of our banking partners. We believe the amended facility, together with our pending $600 million bond issuance, provides the Company the financial flexibility to efficiently execute our long-term growth strategy," stated John Quinn, Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer of LKQ Corporation.
