CIT Group announced that it has closed a new approximately $345 million (RMB2.2 billion) committed facility that will allow CIT Global Vendor Finance to fund new originations in China. The committed availability period expires in September 2014 with a three year final maturity for each drawdown under the facility.

“This new facility, which is incremental to a RMB1.8 billion facility we closed in China last year, will support our efforts to grow our vendor finance business in China and reflects our continued success in advancing CIT’s global funding strategy,” said John A. Thain, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer.

Adrian Pang, Managing Director, CIT Vendor Finance, Asia, said, “This facility will allow us to efficiently fund the growth of our business as we continue to meet the equipment financing needs of our customers throughout China.”
Bank of Communications Co., Ltd. served as Agent and Arranger while Agricultural Bank of China Limited served as Co-Arranger under the facility. Bank of Beijing Co., Ltd. and China Merchants Bank Co., Ltd. also served as committed lenders.
