Royal Bank of Canada Leads Credit Facility Renewals for Chesswood Group

Chesswood Group Limited announced the completion of the renewals of its two $250 million primary borrowing facilities. These two facilities are provided by two separate bank syndicates, including leading Canadian and American banks active in our industry, and are both led by Royal Bank of Canada.

“Our senior revolving facility allows us tremendous flexibility to fund most types of finance receivables where ever they are originated within our group, and also now includes a $50 million accordion feature that can increase the overall revolver to $300 million. Pawnee Leasing’s $250 million warehouse facility serves as the main platform for Pawnee’s prime originations before they are securitized,” said Barry Shafran, Chesswood’s President and CEO.

“These renewals were completed ahead of the final year of their terms and provide a modest but welcome reduction in our cost of funds while demonstrating the support Chesswood continues to receive from our lenders. We’re very grateful for the support of our many bank partners in Canada and the United States,” Shafran added.

The term of the senior revolving facility now extends to December 2022 while the term of the warehouse facility extends to September 2021. These two facility renewals solidify most of Chesswood’s treasury resources for the coming years and provide the company with a strong capital base from which to support future growth.
