Nov 04, 2015, 17:59 ET from CDI Corp.

PHILADELPHIA, Nov. 4, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- CDI Corp. (NYSE: CDI) announced today that the Company entered into a new secured credit agreement providing for up to $150 million in revolving loans.

"This new credit facility reflects the strength of CDI's balance sheet and provides a significant increase in CDI's financial flexibility to support business growth and strategic investment," said Michael S. Castleman, Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer.

The new five-year credit agreement, maturing in October 2020, may be used for working capital and general corporate purposes, as well as permitted acquisitions and investments. In addition, the credit agreement includes an accordion feature that enables the Company, under certain circumstances, to increase borrowing capacity under the facility by up to $75 million. The new facility replaces the existing five-year $75 million credit facility that was scheduled to mature in November 2017.

Borrowings under the credit agreement will bear interest at a rate equal to LIBOR plus an applicable margin of between 1.25% and 1.75%, or an alternative base rate plus an applicable margin of between 0.25% and 0.75%, in both cases based on the level of borrowings outstanding. The Company will pay a commitment fee on unused amounts of the credit facility at an annual rate of 0.25%. Borrowings under the credit facility are secured by all assets of the company. Terms and conditions of the credit facility are described in the Company's Form 8-K, which was filed today with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

Bank of America, N.A., acted as administrative agent, joint lead arranger and joint book-runner. Bank of Montreal acted as joint lead arranger and joint book-runner, and Wells Fargo Capital Finance also committed to the facility.
