Pivotree Completes BMO Credit Facility Expansion

12/07/2020

TORONTO, Dec. 7, 2020 /CNW/ - Pivotree Inc. ("Pivotree" or the "Company"), a leading global commerce and master data management ("MDM") services provider, today announced the completion of an amended and restated credit agreement with the Bank of Montreal ("BMO") to replace its existing BMO credit facilities, which are currently drawn to $10.7 million under two separate facilities, with a single committed revolving facility ("Amended BMO Facility") for up to $25 million of revolving credit, with the ability to access an additional $1,000,000 treasury risk line of credit to be used at the discretion of BMO for hedging agreements.

The Amended BMO Facility may be drawn by way of Canadian dollar loans ("Canadian Dollar Loans"), U.S. dollar loans ("U.S. Dollar Loans"), or the issuance of letters of credit ("Letters of Credit"), and will mature on October 31, 2023.

Mo Ashoor, CFO of Pivotree, said, "The amendment of our credit agreement with BMO significantly expands our capital flexibility by increasing access to non-dilutive sources of funding at an attractive cost of capital. We are happy to be expanding our agreement with BMO."

The Amended BMO Facility will carry an interest rate of:

  • For Canadian Dollar Loans, BMO's reference rate plus 1.5% per annum;
  • For U.S. Dollar Loans, BMO's reference rate plus 1.5% per annum; and
  • For Letters of Credit, the face amount of each Letter of Credit multiplied by an applicable margin, further multiplied by the number of days to expiry of the Letter of Credit and divided by 365 or 366, as the case may be.

Standby fees of 0.60% will also be payable by the Company on unused portions of the Amended BMO Facility.
