IBC Advanced Alloys Corp. entered new credit facilities (the “Credit Facilities”) of up to $8,000,000 established pursuant to (a) a credit and security agreement among Iron Horse Credit, LLC and certain of the Company’s U.S. subsidiaries and (b) an account sale and purchase agreement (the “ASPA”) among Sallyport Commercial Finance, LLC and the Subsidiaries. The Credit Facilities replace the Company’s existing revolving credit facility with the Bank of Montreal.

Pursuant to the Credit Agreement, Iron Horse Credit, LLC will provide the Subsidiaries with a secured revolving credit facility of up to US$4,000,000.

The Subsidiaries will grant the lenders a senior security interest in their personal property assets, inventories and accounts receivables, subject to the terms of an intercreditor agreement.

IBC intends to use the proceeds of the Credit Facilities to advance the consolidation and modernization of the Company’s copper alloys manufacturing facility in Franklin, Indiana and for working capital purposes.

The Credit Agreement will accrue interest at a rate of 1.166% per month on outstanding amounts, with such interest compounded and payable monthly and has a maturity date of 12 months subject to further renewal.
