ATB to Provide $22MM Credit Facility to Founders Advantage Capital

Filed Under: Investment Financing

Founders Advantage Capital has entered into a commitment letter with Alberta Treasury Branches ("ATB") wherein ATB has agreed to provide the Corporation a new $22 million credit facility comprised of a $17 million revolving facility ("Facility A") and a $5 million non-revolving facility ("Facility B").

The borrowings from Facility A and Facility B will be used to: (i) repay the Corporation's existing $20 million bridge loan (the "Bridge Loan"), which was used to facilitate the Corporation's acquisition of a 60% interest in Dominion Lending Centres ("DLC"); and (ii) for working capital and general corporate purposes. Facility A and Facility B bear interest at a floating rate equal to the Prime Rate as set by ATB from time to time plus a margin of 3.00%-3.75% (initially 3.00%) and mature on the earlier of the date on which repayment is demanded by ATB or December 31, 2016. The ATB facilities are secured by a pledge of the Corporation's interest in DLC as well as a general security agreement over all of the Corporation's assets.

Pursuant to the terms of the Bridge Loan, the Corporation is required to provide the bridge lender with 105 days' notice prior to repayment of the loan or paying the bridge lender the equivalent amount of interest for such 105-day notice period. As the Bridge Loan is being repaid in full, the Corporation will be obligated to pay the bridge lender interest for the 105-day notice period.

The Corporation is listed on the TSX Venture Exchange as an Investment Issuer (Tier 1) and employs a passive and permanent investment approach. The Corporation has developed an investment approach to create long-term value for its shareholders and partner entrepreneurs (investees) by pursuing majority interest acquisitions of cash flow positive middle-market privately held entities.
