Solution Financial Inc. (TSXV:SFI) (the “Company”) wishes to announce the close of a $7.5 Million Line of Credit Loan Facility with a major Schedule 1 Canadian Financial Institution.
Adds a net $6.3 million in new available leasing capital
Provides excellent leverage to our shareholders with a low interest rate at Prime plus 1.2%
Establishes a mutually beneficial relationship with a major Schedule 1 Canadian Bank
Provides a clear strategy for the expected growth of our lease portfolio to over $20 million in fiscal 2019
“We are excited about this next major milestone for Solution Financial,” said Bryan Pang, Solution Financials Chief Executive Officer. “When we went public in June 2018, we had one major goal and that was to expand our access to equity and debt capital to fully capitalize on the luxury leasing market. Coming into 2019, we averaged over $26 million per year in leasing transactions but much of this business was brokered as a result of Solution’s limited access to capital. Since going public, we have raised $3.5 million in equity, $4.08 million in convertible debentures and with this new $7.5 million bank relationship we are well positioned to expand our luxury car leasing offering and incrementally add to our profitable bottom line,” concluded Bryan.
The $7.5 million secured line of credit facility bears interest at prime plus 1.2% per annum (current total interest of 5.15%) and will all be used for new leasing capital. The Company’s lease portfolio recently surpassed $16 million.
