MISSISSAUGA, ON / ACCESSWIRE / May 6, 2019 / RediShred Capital Corp. (the "Company") announced today that it has secured a senior credit facility of an aggregate amount of US$9.5 million with the Bank of Montreal ("BMO"). The new facility is a non-revolving re-advanceable demand loan available by way of prime loans, USBR loans, Libor loans and fixed rate term loans.

BMO has advanced US$4.47 million on the US$9.5 million non-revolving demand loan bearing interest at a fixed rate of 3.50% with an amortization of 60 months.
The BMO credit facilities will be used to fund potential acquisition opportunities and increase working capital.

The new facility will continue to allow Redishred to grow by way of accretive acquisitions and expand the Company's footprint in the US.
