Anixter International Inc. (NYSE: AXE), today announced that its wholly owned operating subsidiary, Anixter Inc., amended today its 400 million senior unsecured revolving credit facility dated April 8, 2011.

The following key changes have been made to the revolving credit agreement:

  • Reduced pricing; based on the current leverage ratio the applicable margin would decrease by 50 basis points to LIBOR plus 1.75 percent

All other material terms and conditions of the revolving credit agreement, which is guaranteed by Anixter International Inc., are similar to the prior credit agreement.

“We are pleased to complete the extension of the credit agreement to 2018, which validates Anixter’s strong financial profile,” commented Ted Dosch, Executive Vice President and CFO. He continued, "The credit facility’s borrowing capacity, along with our strong cash flow and solid financial results, will continue to provide Anixter with the financial flexibility to support our strategic goals."
