Shares of business process outsourcing firm, iEnergizer (LON: IBPO) are trading higher on Wednesday after the company announced it has entered into a credit agreement for a new five-year senior secured term loan facility.
The facility's aggregate amount is $165 million, including a $15 million revolving credit facility.
