New Senior Credit Facility Includes a $100 Million TLA and a $150 Million RCF
Board of Directors Authorizes Up to $25 Million in Share Repurchases
ALBANY, N.Y., Nov. 09, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- AngioDynamics (NASDAQ:ANGO), a leading provider of innovative, minimally invasive medical devices for vascular access, surgery, peripheral vascular disease and oncology, today announced that it has entered into a new credit facility and repaid and terminated its existing credit facilities. The new credit facility will further strengthen AngioDynamics’ capital structure and provide greater flexibility to make investments that support its growth strategy. In addition, AngioDynamics today announced that its Board of Directors has authorized a repurchase of up to $25 million of the Company’s common stock.
“This new credit facility will provide greater flexibility for our business moving forward and improve our capital structure,” said Michael Greiner, Chief Financial Officer. “We are confident that this facility will allow us to execute our strategic initiatives and capitalize on growth opportunities as they emerge.”
Under the terms of the new credit facility, AngioDynamics entered into a credit agreement with JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A., Merrill Lynch, Pierce, Fenner & Smith Incorporated and KeyBank National Association, which served as Joint Bookrunners and Joint Lead Arrangers. JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A. will also serve as Administrative Agent on the new credit facilities. The facilities include a $100 million Term Loan A (TLA) and a $150 million Revolving Credit Facility (RCF). The Company will retire all existing loans and terminate all existing commitments under its existing credit facilities with the proceeds of the new facilities.
Under the newly authorized repurchase program, purchases of shares of common stock may be made through open market purchases or in privately negotiated transactions in compliance with applicable federal securities laws.
Greiner continued, “The authorization of a share repurchase program underscores our confidence in the strength of our business, and will be supported by our solid cash position and continued free cash flow generation. This program will permit us to opportunistically repurchase additional shares at attractive valuations while also remaining focused on driving long-term shareholder value.”
The timing and amount of any repurchases of common stock will be determined by AngioDynamics’ management based upon market conditions and other factors including price, regulatory requirements and capital availability. The share buyback program does not obligate the Company to acquire any specific number of shares in any period, and may be expanded, extended, modified or discontinued at any time without prior notice.
Payment for shares repurchased under the program will be funded using the Company's cash on hand. At the end of the 2016 fiscal first quarter ended August 31, 2016, the Company had approximately 36.7 million shares of common stock issued and outstanding.
