“This conduit facility continues the refinancing efforts we began earlier this year and provides PTL with an attractively priced source of pre-payable variable debt,” said Frank Cocuzza, Senior Vice President of Finance, Penske Truck Leasing. “We are pleased some of the leading financial institutions in the world have agreed to participate in this facility.”
