BofA Merrill Lynch Arranges $200 Million Facility for Alorica

Alorica, a provider of outsourced customer management solutions, announced that it has secured a five-year, $200 million senior secured credit facility.

The credit facility includes an additional revolving accordion feature, which will allow the company to borrow an additional $125 million, extending its total line of credit borrowing to $325 million. The new facility will be used to fund working capital, growth initiatives and acquisitions.
