Volt Information Sciences Announces New Financing Agreement with DZ BANK AG
NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Volt Information Sciences, Inc. (“Volt” or the “Company”) (NYSE-AMERICAN:VISI) today announced that as of January 25, 2018, the Company has entered into a long-term accounts receivable securitization program with DZ BANK AG Deutsche Zentral-Genossenschaftsbank (“DZ BANK”) and exited its financing relationship with PNC Bank.
Under the terms of the new agreement, DZ BANK will provide a two-year, $115 million facility which permits borrowings until January 25, 2020. The Company expects to save approximately $1.5 million over the term of the program, driven by reduced borrowing costs as compared to its previous agreement.
Commenting on Volt’s new financing arrangement, Michael Dean, President and CEO, said, “We are pleased to have closed this financing transaction with DZ BANK. With $115 million of funding capacity, the new agreement better aligns the Company’s current financing requirements with our strategic initiatives and reduces our overall borrowing costs. In addition to better pricing, the new facility has less restrictive financial covenants and few restrictions on use of proceeds, which will improve available liquidity and allow us to continue to advance our capital allocation plan. Overall, the new financing program greatly enhances our financial flexibility and debt maturity profile, while providing the Company with additional resources to execute our business strategy.”
Information concerning the completion of this transaction was filed by Volt today with the Securities and Exchange Commission and can be obtained at www.sec.gov or the ‘Investors’ section of Volt’s website at www.volt.com.
