MIAMI--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Intcomex, Inc. (Intcomex or the Company), the US-based value-added distributor of information technology products to Latin America and the Caribbean, today announced that on January 10, 2014 it closed on a $150 million revolving credit facility maturing in 2019 through PNC Bank, National Association (or PNC Bank) and BankUnited N.A. (or BankUnited). The Company used a portion of the proceeds from the new credit facility to pay the $100 million outstanding aggregate principal amount of its 13 ¼% Second Priority Senior Notes due December 2014. Concurrent with the closing of this transaction, the Company received approximately $20 million in additional equity from its existing shareholders.
Intcomex expects the refinancing to generate substantial ongoing interest expense savings and gradually increase the Company’s overall liquidity.
