WFCF Lowers Interest Rate Margins on IES Facility

Robert Lewey, IES’ chief financial officer, stated, “The extension and reduction in the interest rates of our term loan and revolving credit facility demonstrate Wells Fargo’s confidence in IES and further evidence of our financial progress. Wells Fargo continues to be an important partner as we seek to take advantage of acquisition opportunities that fit our investment criteria.”
