The facility consists of a $4.0 million revolving credit facility (the “Facility”) which matures in April 2021, extendable thereafter.
"I’m pleased we’ve been able to put this facility in place with a great partner like NBC," said Craig O’Neill, Chief Executive Officer. "Its an efficient way to optimize our working capital and a testament to the growth we’ve achieved in our recurring revenues from ARC.”
“As an active member in Canada’s innovation ecosystem, National Bank is pleased to partner with Versapay, a leading provider of cloud-based payments solutions,” said David Looi, Senior Director with NBC’s Technology and Innovation Banking Group. “With over 20 years of experience helping companies like Versapay, our team offers support, advice and financial services tailored to the needs of technology businesses from start-up through to maturity.”
The Facility is secured by assets of Versapay and its US subsidiary, which primarily consists of intellectual property and accounts receivable. The proceeds of the Facility will be used for general corporate and working capital purposes.
Pursuant to the agreed upon conditions of the Facility, the Company can draw down funds as required based on a multiple of the monthly recurring revenue (“MRR”) of its ARC software product. Pricing is set at the Prime Rate plus 2.0% per annum for the Facility, and contains customary financial and restrictive covenants.
