TORONTO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Greenbrook TMS Inc. (TSX: GTMS) (“Greenbrook” or the “Company”), a leading provider of Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (“TMS”) therapy in the United States, announced today that it and its subsidiaries have entered into a credit and security agreement for a US$30 million secured credit facility (the “Credit Facility”) with Oxford Finance LLC (“Oxford”).
Bill Leonard, CEO of Greenbrook commented, “We are very pleased to complete this debt financing that provides us with an immediate US$15 million of minimally dilutive capital to strengthen our balance sheet and fund our ongoing growth. The up to US$15 million in delayed draw tranches will allow us to prudently use additional debt as we further expand our network of Greenbrook TMS centers through both our organic growth strategy and potential acquisitions.”
The Credit Facility provides a US$15 million term loan which was funded at closing and an option of drawing up to an additional US$15 million in three US$5 million delayed-draw term loan tranches within the next 24 months, subject to achieving specific financial milestones. All amounts borrowed under the Credit Facility will bear interest at a rate equal to 30-day LIBOR plus 7.75%, subject to a minimum interest rate of 8.75%. The Credit Facility has a five-year term and amortizes over the life of the Credit Facility with 1% of the principal amount outstanding amortized over years one to four with the remaining outstanding principal repaid in equal installments over the fifth year.
As consideration for providing the Credit Facility, Greenbrook issued 256,535 common share purchase warrants to Oxford (the “Warrants”). Each Warrant is exercisable for one common share of Greenbrook at an exercise price of C$2.24 per common share. The Warrants will expire on December 31, 2025.
Bloom Burton Securities Inc. acted as the Company’s sole financial adviser in connection with the transaction.
