DAYVILLE, Conn. -- United Natural Foods, Inc. here said last week that it has completed an amended and restated five-year $400 million revolving credit facility that will equip it to continue to expand its distribution network and stand ready should acquisition opportunities arrive
The specialty distributor completed the credit deal with a bank group led by Bank of America Business Capital as the administrative agent, effective Nov. 27.
The new credit facility replaces an existing $250 million revolving credit facility and extends the maturity date of the credit facility to Nov. 27, 2012. UNFI's outstanding commitments under the amended and restated credit facility as of Oct. 27 were about $165 million.
