iRhythm Technologies Announces Amendment to its Term Loan Agreement
Provides enhanced credit facility of up to $100 million with favorable terms and extended facility maturity to March 2027
SAN FRANCISCO, March 29, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — iRhythm Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ:IRTC), a leading digital healthcare solutions company focused on advancing cardiac care, announced that it has changed its existing credit facility with Silicon Valley Bank (the “Amended Credit Facility”). The agreement improves the pricing and terms of iRhythm’s existing credit facility (“Existing Credit Facility”).
The Amended Credit Facility is non-dilutive and consists of a term loan of up to $75 million (the “Term Loan”) and a revolving credit facility of up to $25 million (the revolving credit”). Thirty-five million dollars of the term loan was drawn at closing to fully repay the approximately $18.5 million outstanding on the term loan under the existing credit facility and to fund working capital. The remaining $40 million of the term loan will remain available to iRhythm until December 31, 2023, subject to applicable conditions. The availability of the revolving line of credit is subject to a borrowing base consisting of the Company’s accounts receivable. The amended credit facility will mature on March 1, 2027.
“We are pleased to further strengthen our cash position through non-dilutive financing at a lower cost of capital and an extended maturity compared to our previous loan agreement,” said Quentin Blackford, President and Chief Executive Officer of ‘iRhythm. “This amendment to our existing credit facility provides us with continued financial stability and flexibility to execute on our core strategies of accelerating growth in our core market and expanding our opportunities in adjacent markets.”
“Silicon Valley Bank is thrilled to continue its partnership with iRhythm to support its mission to advance cardiac care with innovative and clinically actionable cardiac monitoring solutions,” said Kristina Peralta, Senior Vice President, Life Sciences and health care at Silicon Valley Bank.
