it has renewed and amended its revolving credit facility.  The $650 million

    "We are very pleased to extend our revolving credit facility," said Sue
Carter, executive vice president and chief financial officer for Lennox
International.  "The confidence this group of lenders has in our company is
affirmation of our business objectives and stability, and we believe the use
of additional capacity will enhance the capital structure of LII while
improving shareholder returns."
    The joint lead arrangers for the new facility are Bank of America
Securities LLC and JPMorgan Securities, Inc. with Bank of America, N.A. as
administrative agent and JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A and Wachovia Bank, National
Association as co-syndication agents.  The unsecured facility included a high
level of participation by banks that were party to the previous revolver
agreement; in addition, three banks not in the previous credit facility have
agreed to participate in the new revolver agreement.  The overall level of
bank interest was significant, with available commitments ultimately being
reduced at the request of Lennox International.
    Lennox International Inc. is a global leader in the heating, air
conditioning, and refrigeration markets.  Lennox International stock is traded
on the New York Stock Exchange under the symbol "LII".  Additional information
