    repaid from / repaid back to

    Hi,

    Which one of the following sentences sounds more appropriate? The company has been repaying its bank line of credit, and in April it reduced its debt further by $45 million.

    1. In April 2008, the company further repaid $45 million from its line of credit.

    2. In April 2008, the company further repaid $45 million back to its line of credit.

    Thanks,

    MG.

    Anglika,

    Thanks. So, should I use the following sentence? I got rid of 'back'.

    In April 2008, the company further repaid $45 million to its line of credit.

    Hi, How about this:
    "In April 2008 the company repaid a further $45 million to its line of credit". You don't need to say "back" with "repay", "to pay back" = "to repay".
