TORONTO, August 18, 2016 – Tucows Inc. (NASDAQ:TCX, TSX:TC) today announced that it has entered into a new, syndicated five-year secured credit agreement for up to US$75 million, inclusive of a $15 million accordion facility (the “2016 Credit Facility”), with Bank of Montreal (“BMO”) and Royal Bank of Canada (collectively, the “Lenders”). The 2016 Credit Facility will be used to support share repurchases, acquisitions and capital expenditures associated with the Company’s Fiber-to-the-Home program, as well as general working capital and general corporate requirements.
“As planned, this new expanded credit facility provides us with additional financial resources and flexibility to support the ongoing build out of fiber infrastructure for Ting Internet,” said Elliot Noss, President and Chief Executive Officer.
This new facility refinanced and replaced the Company’s current US$14 million credit facility with BMO.
