BETHESDA, MD-Way ahead of the scheduled June 2005 maturation date, Host Marriott Corp. amended its existing $300-million bank credit facility. Among the changes are an increase in the existing facility to $575 million and the extension of the maturation date to September 2008, along with a potential option for a one-year extension.

“The amended credit facility provides greater flexibility and access to $575 million at a reduced cost,” company executive vice president and CFO Edward Walter explains. Deutsche Bank, Bank of America NA and Citicorp North America Inc. led the transaction.

The existing credit facility started out with a $400-million face value when it was completed in 2002 with Deutsche Bank and Bank of America.

As part of the most recent amendment, further unspecified modifications to the covenants were made.
