Crocs, Inc. said it has entered into a new asset-backed revolving credit facility with PNC as of Sept. 25, 2009. The agreement provides for up to $30 million in revolving loans which may be used for working capital needs and other items, as stipulated in the agreement. Certain of the company's subsidiaries were co-borrowers under the agreement.:

“Crocs is a premium consumer brand with strong appeal to a wide array of consumers across the U.S.,” said Steve Roberts, vice president, PNC Business Credit. “We are looking forward to playing an important role in the company's future and to working with its management team.”
Borrowings under the asset-based revolving credit facility bear interest at variable rates of interest, as outlined in the agreement, and are secured by all of the assets of the company. Under the agreement, the company must adhere to certain financial covenants, which are more thoroughly described in the company's Form 8-K, which was filed today with the Securities and Exchange Commission. The facility matures in September 2012.
