(Reuters) - Chipotle Mexican Grill Inc CMG.N has secured a new year-long $600 million revolving credit line, a regulatory filing showed on Friday, as the restaurant chain looks to deal with the fallout from the COVID-19 pandemic.

Companies across the globe have been shoring up their cash positions, at a time when many sectors, including hospitality and retail, have borne the brunt of the respiratory disease.

Chipotle had $909 million in cash and short-term investments, and no debt as of March 31.
