TORONTO, Oct. 10, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Atrium Mortgage Investment Corporation (AI.TO) today increased its revolving operating credit facility to $80 million, from $50 million previously. The term of the facility is for one year. The lead arranger for the renewed credit facility is The Toronto-Dominion Bank. The syndicate of lenders consists of The Toronto-Dominion Bank and National Bank of Canada.

He continued, "With our offices in Ontario, Alberta and British Columbia, we have grown our mortgage portfolio by approximately 35% since the beginning of 2013."
