Nautilus amended its existing credit facility by refinancing the previous term loan with a new $30 million term loan, thereby increasing the company’s total credit facility to $130 million. The credit facility previously consisted of a $100 million asset-based revolver and a $15 million term loan provided by Wells Fargo Bank.
The new term loan will be provided by SLR Credit Solutions, a portfolio company of SLR Capital Partners. Wells Fargo Bank will continue to provide the $100 million revolver and both facilities will mature on Oct. 29, 2026. The incremental availability provided by the new term loan facility, along with the company’s cash balance, is expected to provide sufficient working capital to fund business improvements and growth initiatives and for general corporate purposes, as needed.
“Our increased credit facility, along with our cash balance, will allow us to finance key strategic and operating initiatives and drive to sustained profitable growth,” Aina Konold, CFO at Nautilus, said. “With no debt maturities until calendar 2026, we are well positioned to navigate short-term macroeconomic challenges while continuing to make progress on our North Star strategy. We are very pleased to continue our partnership with Wells Fargo as our revolver lender and welcome SLR Credit Solutions as our new term loan lender.”
The entire $130 million credit facility does not contain any financial performance covenants and is governed by a single minimum excess ABL availability covenant, which is the greater of $10 million and 12.5% of the combined line cap as defined in the credit agreement.
