  • 2. FBR & Co analysts commented, "On March 7, after the market closed, Visteon announced that it will seek to amend and extend credit facilities. We believe the company intends to amend and extend its $350M term loan due in 2021 to a seven-year loan due in 2024, potentially with a lower applicable margin rate; we estimate that the term loan balance remains at $350M face value and that the company's interest rate on this balance is about 4%. We also believe the company also hopes to upsize and extend its revolver from $200M due in 2019, to $300M due in 2022; we estimate that the company currently has no borrowings outstanding on its revolver. From a high level, we think that a lower interest rate on Visteon's term loan could free up additional cash flow for deployment in other directions, including return to shareholders and reinvestment for growth. We also continue to believe that the company might be interested in acquisitions that provide bolt-on technology capabilities." (3/8/2017)
