Wabtec Corporation has amended and increased its existing revolving credit facility to $800 million and extended the facility's maturity date by two years. The revised facility, which has a five-year term, provides the company with increased financing flexibility and capacity, compared to the previous limit of $600 million. The 16-bank group was led by PNC as Joint Lead Arranger, Joint Bookrunner, and Administrative Agent; and J.P. Morgan as Joint Lead Arranger, Joint Bookrunner, and Syndication Agent.

Alvaro Garcia-Tunon, Wabtec's executive vice president and chief financial officer, said: "The agreement provides more than adequate financing and flexibility for Wabtec to continue to invest in its global growth initiatives. We appreciate the strong support of our banks and value their confidence."
