Lehman Brothers Inc. will launch this week a $1 billion, five-year revolving credit facility for Excel Communications Inc., a Dallas-based provider of long distance services.

The loan will back Excel's $1.2 billion acquisition of Telco Communications Group Inc., a Chantilly, Va.-based telecommunications company. The merger, which was announced in early June, is expected to close at the end of the year.
