Although we are already well-capitalized, the Credit Facility increases our financial flexibility and brings down our overall weighted average cost of capital.Tyler Robson, CEO of The Valens Company
The Credit Facility consists of a C$20 million secured term loan and a C$20 million secured revolving loan, with an accordion feature that could allow The Valens Company to increase the aggregate commitments by up to an additional C$10 million. The Credit Facility has a three-year term and is secured by a first ranking charge over substantially all the Company's assets.
Proceeds from the Credit Facility will further strengthen the Company's balance sheet, allowing for the continued expansion of its operations and execution of its corporate strategy, including gaining access to new domestic and global opportunities to increase shareholder value.
"With our enhanced balance sheet, we are well-positioned to continue to expand our innovative product portfolio, build out our custom manufacturing platform, be opportunistic in a consolidating market and maximize capital allocation to generate the highest return on invested capital for our shareholders," said Tyler Robson, CEO of The Valens Company.
Additional details on the credit facility can be found in the Company's documents, which will be filed under the Company's profile on SEDAR at www.sedar.com.
