Pricing on the revolver is LIBOR plus 2% with a 1/2 % commitment fee, and LIBOR plus 3% on the institutional tranche. Golden, Colo.-based GPI is also offering $250 million in subordinated notes. The credit refinances a $325 million, five-year term loan and a $400 million revolver. Bank of America is the agent on the existing lines. Questions to CFO Luis Leon were referred to Paddy Broughton who declined to comment.
