David Moore, MidCap's CFO, said, "We are thrilled to close this expanded facility with Wells Fargo, a truly supportive partner since MidCap got started in 2008. Wells has continuously stood by us, and we will certainly benefit from their efforts to further syndicate this facility. Likewise, having the confidence and support of world class companies like SunTrust, Key, Capital One, Fifth Third, EverBank, and Huntington is truly gratifying. We plan to utilize this critically important facility, together with those from our other credit partners, to take advantage of the current strong market to build our senior debt portfolio."
