MT. LAUREL —PHH Corp. has announced the closing by its indirect wholly-owned subsidiary, Chesapeake Funding LLC, of a $300 million aggregate upsizing in the committed funding capacity available under its Chesapeake Variable Funding Notes facilities.

This upsizing increases the total committed capacity under the conduit facilities to $1.5 billion and increases the total committed financing arrangements at the company’s fleet segment to $3.6 billion.
