Los Angeles, CA—November 10, 2011—CBRE Group, Inc. (NYSE:CBG) today announced that it has closed a previously-announced new incremental senior secured sterling term loan A-1 facility. The new facility, originally expected to total about US$250 million, has been increased to approximately US$300 million (GBP 187 million) due to strong interest from the Company’s existing bank syndicate.
“We are very pleased with our lenders’ continued strong support of CBRE, our people and strategy,” said Brett White, the Company’s chief executive officer. “This new facility enables us to take advantage of today’s highly favorable interest rate environment, and, with our ING REIM acquisition already completed and financed, provides us with more flexibility to capitalize on additional strategic growth opportunities and other corporate initiatives.”
The new facility matures in May 2016, and is on terms substantially similar to CBRE’s existing term loan A facility.
