08:32 EDTJCPJ.C. Penney closes $2.35B credit facility
J. C. Penney Company announced that it has closed its new $2.35B asset-based senior secured credit facility, comprised of a $1.85B revolving line of credit and a $500M term loan. The new facility replaces a $1.85B credit facility that was scheduled to mature in April 2016 and provides better pricing terms than the previous facility. Proceeds from the term loan will be used to pay down the cash borrowings on the previous facility. The revolving line of credit will be available for working capital and general corporate purposes. Ed Record, CFO of JCPenney, said, "We proactively pursued this new facility to extend the maturity several years and further enhance our liquidity position, particularly during periods of peak working capital needs. We are pleased with the improved pricing terms of this facility as well as the support and confidence from our banking partners." The arrangement of the credit facility was co-led by Wells Fargo, Bank of America Merrill Lynch, J.P. Morgan, Barclays and Goldman Sachs.

15:20 EDTJCPMoody's raises J.C. Penney liquidity rating to SGL-1 from SGL-2
Moody's Investors Service revised J.C. Penney's rating outlook to positive from stable. Moody's also affirmed the company's Caa1 Corporate Family Rating, and raised the company's Speculative Grade Liquidity rating to SGL-1 from SGL-2. "The rating outlook revision to positive from stable reflects Moody's view that JC Penney's operating performance has shown signs of improvement as a result of better merchandising, cost controls, and integration of its online business" said Moody's Vice President Scott Tuhy. He added, "we have seen positive momentum building for the company to achieve $700M to $800M of adjusted EBITDA, a level in which earnings would fully cover cash flow and interest". The upgrade in the Speculative Grade Liquidity rating primarily reflects the company's improved operating performance as we expect free cash flow to be near break-even levels and the company's meaningful cash balances are sufficient to cover expected seasonal working capital needs.
