Inventure Foods, Inc., a specialty food marketer and manufacturer, has enhanced its long-term capital position by amending its existing credit agreement to extend the term and increase the capacity, while providing more favorable terms with its lending bank, U.S. Bank.

Inventure Foods has entered into an amended revolving credit facility, which sets a maximum available credit limit of $30.0 million for the full term. This line of credit was increased from $25.0 million to $30.0 million, maturing in March 2018.

The amended agreement also provides for an incremental $5.0 million line of credit for capital expenditures during fiscal 2013. In addition to the amended credit agreement, the Company has also secured an $8.5 million equipment term loan with U.S. Bank. This equipment term loan is collateralized by equipment at all three of the manufacturing facilities and also matures in March 2020.

The amended agreement provides financing at a lower variable interest rate that is tied to standard benchmark rates, and revises certain debt covenants to provide additional operating flexibility.

"This increase in total borrowing capability allows us to continue our focus on accelerating growth and enhancing our long-term visibility," said Steve Weinberger , chief financial officer of Inventure Foods, Inc. "We are extremely pleased with the amended U.S. Bank agreement and the partnership we have been able to cultivate."

With manufacturing facilities in Arizona, Indiana and Washington, Inventure Foods, Inc. is a marketer and manufacturer of specialty food brands in better-for-you and indulgent categories under a variety of company owned and licensed brand names, including Boulder Canyon Natural Foods®, Jamba®, Seattle's Best Coffee™, Rader Farms®, T.G.I.
