HOUSTON, April 11, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Memorial Resource Development Corp. (Nasdaq:MRD) today announced that the existing borrowing base under its $2.0 billion multi-year revolving credit facility was reaffirmed by its bank group, comprised of 20 lenders, at $1.0 billion following its fiscal year-end reserves review and regularly scheduled semi-annual redetermination. MRD’s revolving credit facility matures in June 2019, and the financial covenants were unchanged.

Regarding MRD’s $600 million senior unsecured notes issue due 2022, Standard & Poor's Ratings Services (S&P) recently raised its notes issue rating on MRD's senior unsecured debt to 'B' (same level as the corporate credit rating) from 'B-'.

Graham, CEO, said. "We believe the financial flexibility of our business model and the discipline we are demonstrating through our capital allocation process supported the reaffirmation of our borrowing base and positive credit rating actions."
