Pacira Completes $27.5MM Debt Refinancing With Oxford Finance

Pacira Pharmaceuticals secured a $27.5 million debt financing facility through Oxford Finance. Pacira will use the proceeds from this financing to refinance the remaining principal of its outstanding term loan and for general corporate purposes. The refinancing allows Pacira to defer the first monthly payment of principal until December 1, 2013. In addition, the refinancing was achieved at a lower interest rate compared to the existing term loan rate and the interest rate is fixed, eliminating any future interest rate risk.
