BofAML Provides $40MM Facility to Anytickets.com


Anytickets.com closed on a new $40 million secured credit facility with Bank of America Merrill Lynch.

The new line of credit will allow Anytickets.com to expand its partner inventory program which has driven 200% growth for the company since 2017.

“We are thrilled to be working with Bank of America Merrill Lynch,” said Marcus Stern, president at AnyTickets.com. “These resources will be used as working capital support for Anytickets and our partners continued growth.”

“Bank of America Merrill Lynch is pleased to work with AnyTickets, a company with innovative products and services, professional staff and great leadership,” said Brian P. Barrow, vice president of Global Banking & Markets Bank of America Merrill Lynch. “We look forward to helping them with their next phase of growth.”

The company expects to push 2020 growth to reach$250 million.
