Adesto Technologies Announces Restructuring of Debt Facility
Defers Principal Payment on Term Debt, Expands Borrowing Capacity and Lowers Interest Rates
SANTA CLARA, Calif., Oct. 05, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Adesto Technologies Corporation, (NASDAQ:IOTS), a leading provider of application-specific, ultra-low power non-volatile memory (NVM) products, today announced the Company has amended its existing debt agreement with Bridge Bank, a division of Western Alliance Bank. The benefits of the amended agreement include expanded borrowing capacity under a working capital line of credit, deferred principal payments on a term loan as well as lower interest rates on both the working capital line and term loan.
Under the terms of the amended debt agreement, borrowing capacity under the working capital line of credit has been increased from $2 million to $5 million. Additionally, under the revised terms, repayment of the term loan will consist of interest only for the first 12 months, followed by amortization of principal and interest over the subsequent 36 months. The new debt service payments will be reduced to approximately $1.0 million per quarter beginning in October 2018, compared to previous payments of approximately $1.6 million per quarter, resulting in savings of approximately $6.4 million over the next 12 months. Further, the interest rate on the working capital line has been lowered by 25 basis points and by 50 - 75 basis points on the term loan, depending on certain liquidity ratios.
“By executing this revised agreement combined with our solid cash position following our successful secondary offering in June, we have greatly strengthened the Company's financial profile in support of our growth initiatives,” commented Ron Shelton, Adesto’s Chief Financial Officer. “Further, we have made significant progress over the past year across our business both financially and operationally, which has resulted in significant top line growth, high gross margins and stable operating expense levels as we drive toward our goal of non-GAAP profitability exiting 2017.”
