Select Comfort Announces Amendment And Extension Of $20 Million Credit Agreement

Select Comfort Corporation (NASDAQ: SCSS) today announced it has entered into an amended credit agreement with Wells Fargo Bank, National Association. The amended credit agreement is now unsecured, offers less restrictive covenants, reduces costs associated with the line of credit, and extends the maturity date of the credit facility from July 1, 2012, to April 23, 2015. The amended credit facility also contains an accordion feature that allows the company to increase the credit line to $50 million in total availability, which is subject to lender approval.

“Our sustainable and profitable growth formula, along with our strong balance sheet and cash flows, has provided us with the opportunity to improve the terms of our existing credit facility,” said Wendy Schoppert, chief financial officer, Select Comfort Corporation. “While we anticipate self-funding our growth through our cash-advantaged business model, the credit agreement continues to provide another layer of flexibility in our overall capital structure.”

Additional details of the amended credit agreement are outlined in the company’s Current Report on Form 8-K, filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
