VERNAL, Utah--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Superior Drilling Products, Inc. (NYSE American: SDPI) (“SDP” or the “Company”), a designer and manufacturer of drilling tool technologies, announced that on July 28, 2023, it executed a new credit agreement with Vast Bank, National Association, which included a 5-year, $1.7 million term loan, a 2-year, $750,000 revolving credit line, and a program whereby the lender can purchase certain accounts receivable. The proceeds from the receivables program were used to repay the full amount outstanding under the Company’s existing credit agreement. The funds available through the term loan and the revolving line can be used for working capital and growth capital purposes.
“This new credit agreement extends our maturity dates and includes more favorable financing terms than our previous debt arrangements, which we believe is a reflection of our growing financial strength,” commented Chis Cashion, Chief Financial Officer. “While we expect to continue to generate strong operating cash flow to support our growth strategy, the new credit agreement also provides additional financial flexibility and liquidity.”
The amount available under the revolving line will be the lesser of $750,000 or the borrowing base, which is as of a date 50% of eligible inventory as calculated under the loan agreement. The interest rate on the revolving line will be the greater of prime plus 1.00% or 7.50%. The interest rate on the term loan is fixed at 8.18%.
In addition, in connection with entering into the new loan agreement, the Company entered into business manager agreements for the purchase by the lender of certain domestic and international accounts receivable of the Company. The face amount of the accounts that may be purchased cannot exceed $2.5 million under the domestic agreement and $2.0 million under the international agreement.
