Enterprise Group, Inc. Announces Increase to Existing Finance Facility
ST. ALBERT, ALBERTA--(Marketwired - May 2, 2013) - Leonard D. Jaroszuk, President and CEO of Enterprise Group, Inc. (TSX:E) ("Enterprise" or "Corporation") is pleased to announce that the Corporation has accepted a term sheet presented by PNC Bank Canada Branch (PNC) to increase its current senior secured finance facility from $12.5 million to $20 million at the existing interest rate of prime plus 2%.
This increase coupled with the $6.0 million debenture financing announced March 26, 2013, will assist in facilitating the close of the acquisition of the specialized underground infrastructure company announced on February 28, 2013. As illustrated in that announcement, preliminary unaudited sales revenue for the target acquisition was approximately $14.9 million and EBITDA of $5.8 million, for the year ending 2012.
Further to the existing terms, PNC has also agreed to increase the Corporation's 2013 capital expenditure program from $3.0 million to $11.0 million. This capital expenditure increase, together with the $6.0 million equity private placement announced April 26, 2013, will facilitate the aggressive growth plan to meet the demand for the services of Enterprise's business units.
