Over a Decade of Diverse Banking

Comcast has worked closely with the minority-owned banking community for more than 20 years. For example, for the 10th consecutive year in 2013, Comcast entered into a 364-day revolving credit facility with United Bank of Philadelphia (as administrative agent) and 11 additional Minority Depository Institutions. The facility has commitments of over $30 million.

Comcast continues to work with The Williams Capital Group, L.P., a minority-owned bank, as one of its placement agencies in the company’s commercial paper program, an ongoing effort whereby Comcast routinely sells short-term promissory notes to mutual funds and other investors for working capital financing. Since 2011, Williams Capital has issued $2.75 billion in commercial paper for Comcast. 

"Supplier diversity is in the fabric of our supplier chain. There isn’t a discussion that we have with any of our suppliers, potential or current, where diversity doesn’t come into play. It is not a hobby, it’s something we must do."
