ANN ARBOR, Mich.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Kaydon Corporation today announced that it has entered into a new $400 million credit agreement (the “Credit Agreement”) for a senior credit facility with JP Morgan Chase Bank, N.A. as Administrative Agent, and a syndicate of lenders.

The Credit Agreement provides for a $150 million senior term loan facility which the Company has borrowed to fund a portion of its $10.50 per share special dividend to shareholders payable March 26, 2012.

The term loan facility will bear interest at a floating rate based on LIBOR plus an applicable margin, initially 1.375 percent.

In addition, the Credit Agreement also provides for a $250 million senior revolving credit facility, the proceeds of which may be used by the Company for working capital and general corporate purposes, including for permitted acquisitions and to pay dividends or for repurchases of the Company’s capital stock. The Credit Agreement matures on March 26, 2017. Effective with completion of this Credit Agreement, the Company has terminated its previous $250 million senior revolving credit facility.
