FORT MYERS, FL / ACCESSWIRE / June 27, 2019 / NeoGenomics, Inc. (NASDAQ: NEO), a leading provider of cancer-focused genetic testing services, today announced that the company has entered into a new $250 million five-year Senior Secured Credit Agreement (the "New Credit Agreement") consisting of a $100 million Revolving Credit Facility, a $100 million Initial Term Loan, and a $50 million Delayed Draw Term Loan ("DDTL") which is available for 18 months.
