Walker & Dunlop, Inc. (NYSE: WD) today announced plans to refinance its senior secured term loan and increase the aggregate principal amount to $600 million. The company will use the proceeds from the loan to fund repayment of its existing senior secured term loan and to fund its pending acquisition of Alliant Capital.

The company expects to receive ratings from Standard & Poor’s and Moody’s Investors Services related to this transaction.
