Gibraltar Industries, Inc., a manufacturer and distributor of building products for the residential, industrial, infrastructure, and renewable energy and conservation markets, announced that it has closed on a new $400 million five-year revolving credit facility. The new facility replaces a $300 million secured revolving credit agreement due to mature in December 2020. Gibraltar also has the option to increase the size of the facility by up to an additional $300 million, subject to certain conditions.

In addition to the $100 million increase in capacity, the new agreement reduces costs and relaxes certain restrictions related to acquisitions and capital distributions, thereby providing enhanced flexibility for capital allocation. The new facility will be used for general corporate purposes, including funding future acquisitions, and is due to mature in January 2024.

KeyBanc Capital Markets Inc., Bank of America, N.A., and Citizens Bank, N.A. acted as Joint Lead Arrangers for the new facility, with Branch Banking and Trust Company, BMO Harris Bank N.A., M&T Bank and PNC Bank, National Association serving as Co-Documentation Agents. Two additional lenders participated.

“Thanks to an extraordinary group of banks that have supported our growth strategy for many years, we successfully increased the capacity, reduced the cost and extended the terms of our revolving credit agreement,” said Treasurer Jeffrey Watorek. “At the same time, we now have enhanced flexibility to execute on our four-pillar transformational change strategy, achieve our key financial objectives, and strive to increase shareholder returns.”
