BOULDER, Colo. – Dec. 2, 2013 – Zayo Group, LLC (“Zayo”), announces it has successfully completed the amendment of its credit agreement, including an add-on and re-pricing of its term loan and re-pricing of its revolving credit facility.
The $1.6 billion term loan facility was increased by $150 million to $1.75 billion and will bear interest at LIBOR plus 3.00 percent (versus the previous 3.50 percent), with a minimum LIBOR rate of 1.00 percent, and was priced at par.
