"Given the current economic climate, we were pleased to be able to secure an attractive interest rate and have had strong demand for these notes, particularly with the recent volatility of debt capital markets," said Parker Treasurer Tim Pistell. "By taking this refinancing action, we have achieved a more balanced maturity schedule within the parameters of our management goals." Pistell noted that the company ascribes to a debt-to-debt-equity range of 34 to 37 percent.
