Andrew Peller Limited (ADW.A / ADW.B) is pleased to announce that the Company has entered into a $275 million Asset Backed Lending credit facility effective June 13, 2023, maturing on June 13, 2027. Led by Bank of Montreal, as administrative agent and co-lead arranger, alongside Royal Bank of Canada, as co-lead arranger, the credit facility replaces the Company’s existing credit facility entered into on December 8, 2020. 

“The closing of this facility in this uncertain financial market is a testament to the continued strength and sustainability of our Company,” said John Peller, Chief Executive Officer. “Moving to an asset backed facility allows us to unlock the value of our assets while driving significant interest savings annually.”

Andrew Peller Limited anticipates it will use the proceeds from the credit facility to fund its working capital needs, acquisitions and other general corporate purposes.

Andrew Peller Limited (ADW.A / ADW.B) will issue its financial results for the three months and year ended March 31, 2023 on the afternoon of June 14, 2023. A telephone conference call hosted by John Peller, Chief Executive Officer and Paul Dubkowski, Chief Financial Officer will be held Thursday, June 15, 2023 at 10.00 am ET.
