MISCOR Group Retires All Subordinated Debt
MASSILLON, Ohio, Jan. 7, 2013
MASSILLON, Ohio, Jan. 7, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- MISCOR Group, Ltd. (OTCQB:
MIGL), a provider of outsourced maintenance and electro-mechanical repair and
complementary services for a diverse range of industries, reported today that
the Company has retired its subordinated debt and consolidated the Company's
remaining debt under a recently announced credit facility with PNC Bank,
National Association ("PNC").This new PNC credit facility includes a
revolving line of credit and term loan that may also be used for working
capital, capital expenditures and general corporate purposes.
"We are extremely pleased with the new PNC relationship," stated Michael P.
Moore, President and CEO of MISCOR Group. "Their desire and willingness to
step forward with a comprehensive package speaks to their confidence in
MISCOR's business strategy and their commitment to partner with us in
expanding our capabilities to better serve customers."
The terms of this new credit facility allow for a two-year $6.5 million
secured revolving line of credit with an initial interest rate of LIBOR plus
2.75%. The terms of the new credit facility also provide a five-year $2.5
million secured term loan with an initial interest rate of LIBOR plus 3.00%.
In both instances, based on achieving funded debt to EBITDA targets, the
Company can reduce the interest rates to as low as LIBOR plus 1.25% and LIBOR
plus 1.50%, respectively.
"The new credit agreement with PNC allowed us to pay off all the higher-cost
subordinated debt, thus consolidating all of MISCOR's financing with one
lender," said Marc Valentin, Chief Accounting Officer of MISCOR Group. "It
provides more flexibility at a significantly lower cost, due primarily to
lower interest rates, as we have also moved all of our cash management
activities to PNC."
"I am extremely proud of our team," said Moore. "We have come through a very
difficult economic period, and are benefiting from our hard work. We have
greatly improved profitability, margins, cash flow and overall financial
stability this past year. Our success in executing on the strategic growth
initiatives put in place during 2011 has made this new agreement with PNC
possible. We are excited about the opportunities this new financing agreement
provides to add strategic capital, improve our existing operations, and
execute acquisitions in regions strategic to our key customers."
