Dallas, Texas (PressExposure) August 15, 2006 -- Dallas, Texas â August 14, 2006 âTitan Global Holdings, Inc. (âTitanâ) (OTC BB: TTGL) announced that Titan both amended its existing financing facilities and reached an agreement in principal with Capital Source Finance, LLC (âCapital Sourceâ) to establish a new $15,000,000 revolving credit facility and $4,974,000 senior term loan.
The new financings will be used to repay the existing credit facility of Oblio Telecom Inc. with Capital Source, to finance a portion of a recapitalization, and to provide for future working capital requirements.
The new financings will also be used, in part, to repay senior convertible loans due to Laurus Master Fund, Ltd.
The Revolving Credit Facility would have a term of three years and an interest rate of the Prime Rate of Citibank, N.A. plus 1.50%, and the Senior Term Loan would have a term of three years and would be amortized over four years on a straight line basis with an interest rate of the Prime Rate of Citibank, N.A., plus 4.00%. Titan and Capital Source expect to close the transaction by September 30, 2006.
These new financing arrangements will include the issuance of Common Stock and dilution to current shareholders. There can be no assurance that such new financing arrangements will be finalized in a timely fashion or on terms acceptable to Titan. If the parties are unable to agree on final terms, the contemplated financings will not be completed.
âIn our current fiscal year we paid approximately $7.5 million to our senior lenders in interest, fees, and principal,â said David Marks, Chairman of Titan. âGiven these contractual obligations, Titan wasnât able to invest in significant organic growth. As we look towards our next fiscal year, Titanâs management is very focused on de-leveraging its balance sheet. Upon completion of these new financings, Titan will have more flexibility to use its substantial free cash flow for use to exploit Titanâs organic and strategic opportunities.â
âIn our fiscal year which ends August 31, 2006 Titan made great fundamental progress in dramatically growing its revenue and EBDITA,â said Bryan Chance, CFO of Titan Global Holdings. âThe completion of these financings will give our subsidiaries the working capital to exploit organic and strategic opportunities that deliver a high return on invested cash flow.â
EBIDTA is defined as earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization.
The agreement in principal is subject to Capital Sourceâs ongoing due diligence and audits, Titanâs execution and delivery to Capital Source of loan and security agreements, notes, and assurances as are reasonable and customary for similar loans, and as Capital Source may reasonably require in connection with the Closing. Further, the agreement in principal requires Titan to issue Capital Source 175,000 shares of its common stock and to raise additional equity or convertible debt of at least $5.5m.
Titan has filed an 8-K with the Securities and Exchange Commission relating to its financing with Capital Source.
