The Amended Bank Warehouse Facility was arranged by Credit Suisse Securities (USA) LLC. The Amended Bank Warehouse Facility provides the Borrower with financing of up to $1.0 billion, modified from the previous facility size of $1.25 billion. The Borrower is able to draw on the Amended Bank Warehouse Facility during an availability period that was extended to June 2015 (from June 2013) with a subsequent four year term out option. The interest rate on the Amended Bank Warehouse Facility was reduced to LIBOR plus 2.25% on drawn balances (from LIBOR plus 2.50%) and reduced to 0.50% on undrawn balances (from 0.75%).
