The date until which the company may borrow under the entire facility has been extended to October 2013.

"We are pleased to have successfully renewed our bank conduit facility at a higher advance rate and to have extended its term to late 2013," said David B.

J.P. Morgan and Deutsche Bank served as lead arrangers for the facility, which has ten participating lenders.
