LEAWOOD, Kan., Oct. 24, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Euronet Worldwide, Inc. (NASDAQ: EEFT), a leading global electronic payments provider and distributor, today announced the Company has amended its unsecured revolving credit facility to increase the facility from $1.030 billion to $1.250 billion. The Company also extended the maturity date by approximately four years from October 17, 2023, to October 24, 2027, with a syndicate of domestic and international financial institutions.
The amended credit facility transitions the benchmark interest rate from LIBOR to the recommended replacement benchmark for each applicable currency.

All other terms remain substantially the same as the existing credit facility.
“We are pleased that our existing banking partners recognize the continued strength of our financial position by providing additional commitments in this uncertain economic environment,” stated Rick Weller, Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer of Euronet Worldwide, Inc. “The increased capacity will allow us the flexibility to fund our strategic growth initiatives and ultimately we believe will deliver additional value to our shareholders.”
