On April 1, 2014 XPO Logistics, Inc. (XPO) and its various subsidiaries, amended and restated their $415 million asset-based revolving loan credit facility to provide for an increase in commitments.

(Morgan Stanley), as agent, and Morgan Stanley, Credit Suisse Securities (USA) LLC, Deutsche Bank Securities Inc., J.P.
