Marrone Bio completed a $13 million expansion of its existing accounts-receivable credit facility, which now totals $20 million, and added a $3 million inventory-backed credit facility to support the company as it continues to expand its customer base.

According to the terms of the agreement with LSQ Funding Group, LSQ may elect to purchase up to $20 million of eligible customer invoices from the company, a significant increase from the $7 million limit established in 2017. In addition, the company established a new $3.0 million inventory-backed credit facility with LSQ.

“Our partnership with LSQ has given us excellent cost-effective financial vehicles by which we can improve our liquidity and working capital to accommodate our rapid growth,” said Jim Boyd, president and chief financial officer of Marrone Bio Innovations.

“We are pleased to renew our strong working relationship with Marrone Bio Innovations, which has been an excellent client in our portfolio,” said Dan Ambrico, president and CEO at LSQ Funding Group.
