Hanesbrands (NYSE: HBI), parent of Champion, said it has “favorably” amended its senior secured credit facility, which includes the company’s revolving credit facility, to reflect improved debt ratings.

In November 2010, the company issued $1 billion of 10-year fixed-rate notes, bringing the company’s portion of fixed-rate bond debt at favorable rates and long maturities to approximately 75 percent.

It added that the amendment extends the credit facility’s maturity two years until December 2015 and reduces the current interest rate on its revolver to LIBOR plus 3.25 percent, down from LIBOR plus 4.5 percent.
