Chorus Aviation Inc. announced that it has entered into a three-year committed operating credit facility with CIBC and The Bank of Nova Scotia (Scotiabank).  CIBC is the lead arranger and administrative agent under the facility.
The facility provides Chorus and certain designated subsidiaries with a committed limit of up to $50,000,000 with the opportunity to borrow up to a further $25,000,000 on a demand basis, subject in each case to a borrowing base calculation based principally on the value of eligible accounts receivable, inventory and equipment. This facility replaces $40,000,000 in demand operating credit facilities previously held by Chorus and certain of its subsidiaries.

The indebtedness under this facility is secured by all present and after-acquired personal property of the Credit Parties, excluding aircraft and engines. It contains customary representations, warranties and covenants, including maximum total leverage and fixed charge covenants. Chorus Aviation Capital Corp. and its subsidiaries are excluded from the definition of Credit Parties.

“This facility provides Chorus with additional working capital financing in support of our existing lines of business while we continue to execute against our growth and diversification strategy,” said Joe Randell, president and chief executive officer, Chorus. “We are delighted to partner with CIBC and Scotiabank and appreciate their confidence in Chorus’ business.”

“We are very pleased to provide Chorus with this new banking facility and to help the Company during this exciting phase of its development,” said Eric Métivier, head of corporate banking for Canada at CIBC.
