Oxford Finance Provides $20MM Cerapedics Senior Debt Facility


Oxford Finance announced the closing of a $20 million senior secured term loan with Cerapedics, a privately-held orthobiologics company engaged in the development and commercialization of bone graft substitute products for the treatment of orthopedic injuries.

The loan proceeds are being used to support the ongoing commercialization of i-FACTOR’s use in cervical spine procedures and help fund a FDA study on its application in transforaminal lumbar interbody fusion (TLIF.)

“We are encouraged by the strength of i-FACTOR’s clinical safety and efficacy data,” said Christopher A. Herr, senior managing director at Oxford Finance. “Oxford is pleased to provide capital to help Cerapedics continue to enhance the science of bone repair.”

“We are pleased to be working with a strong partner in Oxford Finance in executing on our key growth initiatives,” said Glen Kashuba, CEO of Cerapedics.
