DALLAS, May 11, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Speed Commerce, Inc. (Nasdaq:SPDC), a leading provider of ecommerce technology and omni-channel solutions for retailers, announced that it has reached agreement with its bank syndicate group to amend its credit agreement.
Among other things, the amendment reduces the consolidated adjusted EBITDA required during fiscal year 2016 to be compliant with the credit agreement's financial covenants. The changes provide the company with greater financial flexibility as it continues to attract, expand and retain relationships with leading ecommerce customers.
"This agreement with our bank group helps us achieve two important goals," said Richard Willis, president and CEO of Speed Commerce. "First, it provides near-term financial flexibility while facilitating a comprehensive, longer-term effort to strengthen our balance sheet and reduce leverage. We greatly appreciate the support and spirit of collaboration provided by the entire syndicate of banks. Second, it allows us to remain laser-focused on servicing our customers by providing efficient and industry-leading ecommerce services."
Mr. Willis continued: "The company also remains on track with the integration and cost reduction plans related to our acquisition of Fifth Gear, including projected savings in critical areas. We are pleased with the early results and are encouraged by our progress."
Speed Commerce has also announced that it has signed five new clients in the past several months, with additional key engagements expected by the 2015/2016 holiday season. The company also confirmed that it has re-signed seven key customers whose contracts were up for renewal in 2015, setting the stage for double-digit revenue growth in fiscal 2016 and beyond.
Reaffirming Fiscal 2015 and 2016 Outlook
Based on these and related developments, Speed Commerce is reaffirming its fiscal 2015 and 2016 outlook. Fiscal 2015 net revenues are expected to range between $120 million to $125 million with adjusted EBITDA between $10 million and $12 million.
