Matador Resources Co. (NYSE: MTDR) announced that MRC Energy Co. , a wholly-owned subsidiary of the company, closed an amended and restated senior secured revolving credit agreement.
Under the credit agreement, the borrowing base was increased to $200 million, up from the previous borrowing base of $125 million. The amendment increased the maximum facility size from $400 million to $500 million and named Royal Bank of Canada as administrative agent. The credit agreement matures in December 2016.
