Valens GroWorks Arranges $40 Million Credit Line

Valens GroWorks Corp. (VLNCF) has entered into a syndicated credit facility with the Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce as Co-Lead Arranger and Administrative Agent, and ATB Financial as Co-Lead Arranger. The Lenders will provide The Valens Company up to C$40 million of secured debt financing.

“Although we are already well-capitalized, the Credit Facility increases our financial flexibility and brings down our overall weighted average cost of capital. With our enhanced balance sheet, we are well-positioned to continue to expand our innovative product portfolio, build out our custom manufacturing platform, be opportunistic in a consolidating market and maximize capital allocation to generate the highest return on invested capital for our shareholders,” said Tyler Robson, CEO of The Valens Company.

Valens is the largest third-party extraction Company in Canada with an annual capacity of 425,000 kg of dried cannabis and hemp biomass at our purpose-built facility in Kelowna, British Columbia which is in the process of becoming European Union (EU) Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) compliant. The Valens Company currently offers a wide range of product formats, including tinctures, two-piece caps, soft gels, oral sprays, and vape pens as well as beverages, concentrates, topicals, edibles, injectables, natural health products and has a strong pipeline of next-generation products in development for future release.

According to the company statement, the Credit Facility consists of a C$20 million secured term loan and a C$20 million secured revolving loan, with an accordion feature that could allow The Valens Company to increase the aggregate commitments by up to an additional C$10 million. The Credit Facility has a three-year term and is secured by a first ranking charge over substantially all the Company’s assets.

Proceeds from the Credit Facility will further strengthen the company’s balance sheet, allowing for the continued expansion of its operations and execution of its corporate strategy, including gaining access to new domestic and global opportunities to increase shareholder value.
