The MB facility, along with a term loan from MidStar Capital, was used to refinance senior indebtedness and provide for working capital needs going forward.

“MB Business Capital Canada is pleased to have participated in a cost-effective senior debt facility with a flexible covenant structure to enable CDI to execute on its business plan and continued growth,” said Dan Flaro, MB senior vice president and country executive.

“The MB Business Capital and MidStar Capital teams are seasoned professionals who demonstrated a sincere interest in learning about our business and executed seamlessly on their proposals,” said Erez Pikar, CDI CEO.
