Tuesday, December 4, 2018 3:26 PM
CALGARY, AB / ACCESSWIRE / December 4, 2018 / Ivrnet Inc. (TSX-V: IVI) ("Ivrnet" or the "Corporation") announces it has restructured the repayment terms with R.C. Morris Capital Management Ltd.'s mezzanine loan as part of a recent initiative to replace the financing with less expensive capital.
Following six quarters of positive EBITDA, growth in new product sales, and reduced operating costs, Ivrnet is returning to the financial markets for a replacement to the mezzanine financing provided by R.C. Morris Capital Management Ltd.in 2016.
"The capital provided by RC Morris in 2016 was instrumental to Ivrnet's productization of 15 years of intellectual property, and to the restructuring of Ivrnet's SaaS infrastructure", said David Snell, Ivrnet's CEO, "but the company has progressed to a point where it believes less expensive capital is an option. RC Morris has been a great partner, and as such are very supportive of replacing their own debt with financing more suitable at this time."
Over the last 3 months Ivrnet has explored options with alternate financers and has several proposals on the table. "We want to ensure that Ivrnet takes the right deal for the company, not just the first deal that comes along, so we have presented to them a relaxation of the loan repayment to provide time to evaluate and select the best deal", stated Conrad Krebs of RC Morris. As part of the loan restructuring, RC Morris will allow Ivrnet to make interest only payments for up to 18 months. The intent, however, is to remove the RC Morris loan before that time.
"RC Morris' goal has always been to work with clients that could not find alternative financing and help them grow to the point that we are no longer needed. We are proud of the positive impact this has on our clients and feel Ivrnet is ready to take this step", continued Mr. Krebs.
In addition to providing the relaxation, RC Morris has agreed to provide consulting services to assist Ivrnet in evaluating deals and preparing materials.
