Ebix, Inc, an international supplier of On-Demand software and E-commerce services to the insurance, financial and healthcare industries, announced the expansion of its existing credit facility from $450 Million to $650 Million, to assist in funding its growth.

The $200 Million increase in the bank line was the result of many members of the existing bank group expanding their share of the credit facility and the addition of BBVA Compass and Bank of the West to the Banking Syndicate, which further diversifies Ebix's lending group under the credit facility to ten participants.

The syndicated bank group now comprises ten leading financial institutions that include Regions Bank, PNC Bank, BMO Harris Bank, Compass Bank, Fifth Third Bank, KeyBank, Bank of the West, Silicon Valley Bank, Cadence Bank and Trustmark National Bank. Regions Bank continued to lead the banking group while serving as the administrative and collateral agent. PNC Bank and BMO Capital Markets served as co-syndication agents, BBVA Compass and Fifth Third Bank served as co-documentation agent, and Regions Capital Markets, PNC Capital Markets and BMO Capital Markets acted as joint lead arrangers and joint book runners.

The new credit facility has the following key components:

  • A 5-year term loan for $250 Million
  • A 5-year revolving credit facility for $400 Million

The new credit facility also allows for up to $150 Million of incremental facilities. As of closing, the facility interest rates will be based on a leveraged-based pricing grid.

The Company also announced that it now has access to total funds of approximately $331 Million to fund any of its working capital or any other growth and share repurchase initiatives. This includes the worldwide cash balances in the bank of approximately $85 Million in addition to available credit line of approximately $246 Million.

Robin Raina, President and CEO, Ebix Inc. said, "We are excited to have the support of ten leading financial institutions towards funding our future growth initiatives. We thank our existing eight banks that have continued to repose faith in our fundamentals, as also welcome two new banks to the expanded banking syndicate. The support of the banks has been overwhelming with the credit line commitments being oversubscribed strongly. We feel that our expanded banking syndicate comprises a world class banking group that has the capacity and intent to keep pace with our projected growth trajectory.'
