Mississauga, Ontario–(Newsfile Corp. – July 28, 2017) – RediShred Capital Corp. (TSXV: KUT) (the “Company”) announced today that it has secured an aggregate amount of $4.0 million of senior secured credit facilities from Bank of Montreal (“BMO”). These facilities include (i) an operating revolving demand loan in the amount of $1 million bearing interest at BMO’s prime rate plus 1.7% and (ii) a non-revolving term loan in the amount of $3 million with an amortization of 60 months from the date of drawdown and bearing interest at BMO’s prime rate plus 2.0% (collectively, the “BMO Facilities”). The BMO Facilities are secured by a first charge on the Company’s assets, pledges of the shares of the direct and indirect subsidiaries of the Company and an assignment of insurance of the Company and subsidiaries to BMO.
As a condition of the BMO Facilities, the Company has repaid in full the outstanding balance owing of approximately $2 million pursuant to a $6.03 million revolving line of credit (the “Original Bunky Facility”) provided by the Company’s shareholder Bunky Holdings Ltd. (“Bunky”). The repayment is in accordance with the terms of such line of credit. At the same time, the Company is replacing the Original Bunky Facility with a new revolving line of credit with Bunky at a reduced amount of up to $2 million (the “Bunky Facility”), which will bear interest at the same rate as the Original Bunky Facility, being 10% per annum. The Bunky Facility will have a second charge on the Company’s assets, and have its term extended from November 27, 2019 to July 16, 2022.
The BMO Facilities will be used to pay off the Original Bunky Facility, increase working capital and fund potential acquisition opportunities. The Bunky Facility may be drawn upon by the Company for the purposes of potential acquisition opportunities and working capital.
Kasia Pawluk, the Company’s Chief Financial Officer stated, “The new credit facilities from Bank of Montreal are part of Redishred’s on-going plans to manage and strengthen our Balance Sheet. The new facility is indicative not only of our past performance, but more crucially, will set the foundation for growth going forward.”
