BROOKFIELD, Conn., Dec. 15, 2008 – Photronics Inc., developer of reticles and photomasks for semiconductor and microelectronics applications, has announced that it has finalized the terms and conditions of its amended revolving credit agreement.

"The finalization of our credit agreement is a positive development for Photronics, particularly given the current credit market environment. By eliminating the requirement for $75 million in permanent long-term capital, and agreeing to other conditions of the amended agreement, we now have the necessary financing to allow the company to move forward with our strategic business plans," said Constantine S. Macricostas, Photronics' chairman and interim CEO.
