Filed Under: Industry News

TriplePoint Venture Growth BDC Corp., the leading financing provider to venture growth stage companies backed by a select group of venture capital firms in the technology and other high growth industries, announced it has extended and expanded its revolving credit facility (“Credit Facility”). Deutsche Bank AG serves as administrative agent and as a lender, together with existing lenders KeyBank National Association, TIAA, FSB, MUFG Union Bank, N.A., Hitachi Capital America Corporation and NBH Bank, and along with new lender, Customers Bank, under the Credit Facility.

The Credit Facility, as amended, among other things, increases the capacity of the Credit Facility from $300 million to $325 million, extends the revolving period to November 30, 2022 and extends the scheduled maturity date to May 31, 2024. The $25 million increase was made under the accordion feature in the Credit Facility, which allows the Company, under certain circumstances, to increase the size of the Credit Facility to up to $400 million.

“We are pleased to have increased and extended our revolving credit facility and appreciate the continued support of our leading and expanded banking group,” said Christopher Mathieu, Chief Financial Officer of TPVG. “This amended facility further strengthens our liquidity position and prospects for growing the portfolio as we end the year and enter into 2021.”

Borrowings under the Credit Facility are subject to various covenants including the leverage restrictions contained in the Investment Company Act of 1940, as amended, provided that the Company’s asset coverage ratio under the Credit Facility shall not be less than 150%. More information regarding the amendment to the Credit Facility, including a copy thereof, can be found in our Current Report on Form 8-K, filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on December 14, 2020.
