Mavenir Systems, Inc. Announces the Repayment and Amendment of its Debt Facilities
RICHARDSON, Texas --(Business Wire)--
Systems (NYSE: MVNR), a leading provider of software-based
networking solutions, today announced the repayment of the outstanding
balance of $15.0 million plus accrued interest on March 5, 2014 on its
2013 subordinated loan facility, using funds received in its recent
Initial Public Offering ("IPO"). This facility bore interest at 12%, or
$1.8 million per year in cash interest payments.
Additionally, Mavenir™ amended its current debt facility with Silicon
Valley Bank to reduce the interest rate on the term loan and to extend
the term to five years from three years, and modify the financial
covenants. Total borrowing capacity under the facility was increased by
approximately $12.5 million. No material changes were made to the
revolver portion of the facility. The amendment was entered into on
March 6, 2014.
"This amendment is a result of our recent IPO and continued growth. We
anticipate this repayment and amendment will substantially reduce our
financing costs, freeing funds for ongoing investments in new product
development and market expansion," said Terry Hungle, Chief Financial
Officer, Mavenir Systems (News - Alert).
"Helping our innovative clients increase their probability of success is
what we striv to do every day," said Robert Sureck, Senior Market
Manager for Silicon Valley Bank in Texas. "We're thrilled to be able to
