BIOLASE secured a $6 million revolving line of credit from Bridge Bank, a division of Western Alliance Bank. Funds from the two-year accounts receivable line of credit will be used for working capital purposes.
BIOLASE Senior Vice President and Chief Financial Officer John Beaver said, “I believe the new line of credit, coupled with the $11.4 million equity infusion from the rights offering that closed last year, will be sufficient to fund the company’s future growth as it moves towards achieving its goals of positive operating cash flow and profitability.”
“We’re very pleased to have the opportunity to work with the team at Biolase,” said Mark Breneman, senior vice president of Bridge Bank’s Southern California technology banking group. “We look forward to supporting the team as they continue to expand.”
