(Nasdaq:BLMN) announced today that its wholly-owned subsidiary, OSI Restaurant Partners, LLC, has initiated a process to refinance its 2007 senior secured credit facilities ("2007 Facilities"). The 2007 Facilities provide financing of up to $1.6 billion, consisting of a senior secured term loan facility, which matures in June 2014, and a working capital revolving credit facility and a pre-funded revolving credit facility, both of which mature in June 2013.
