Boardwalktech Secures $4 Million Line-of-Credit with Celtic Bank to Bolster Expansion Efforts

CUPERTINO, Calif., April 1, 2024 /PRNewswire/ - It's a significant stride forward for Boardwalktech Software Corp (TSXV: BWLK) (OTCQB: BWLKF), a digital ledger platform leader and enterprise software solution provider. They have triumphantly obtained a substantial financial boost by securing a three-year $US4.0 million Line-of-Credit (LOC) facility from Celtic Bank as of March 28, 2024. Aimed explicitly at nurturing the company's growth and expanding its recurring revenue streams, this strategic financial support is poised to accelerate Boardwalktech’s market presence.

The Line-of-Credit comes with several advantageous terms tailored to sustain the company's scaling efforts:

  • A total facility amount of $US4.0 million, capped at 60% of the trailing 12-month annual recurring revenue (ARR).
  • An initial three-year term with an interest-only payment structure, with the option for both parties to extend the LOC.
  • An initial interest rate of 12.5%, which is determined by adding 4% to the Prime Rate, as listed in the Wall Street Journal.
  • Crucially, the financial arrangement is non-dilutive, devoid of any warrants, conversions, or Loan Bonuses.

CEO Andrew T. Duncan expressed confidence in their decision to embrace Celtic Bank’s offer, highlighting the adaptable and non-reliant nature of this LOC facility on the often unpredictable market conditions or equity sources, "After evaluating various proposals in a tough financing landscape, we are exceedingly satisfied with our partnership with Celtic Bank. This LOC grants us the capacity and flexibility to manage working capital and foster growth. Our trajectory towards reaching a cash-based breakeven point is ongoing, and securing this credit facility ensures our potential for growth remains robust."

Boardwalktech envisions utilizing the proceeds from the LOC to drive sales and enhance marketing, support their working capital requirements, and to fortify their balance sheet. This bolstered financial standing is key in attracting new business, “The customer demand for our leading products such as Unity Central, Velocity, and Digital Ledger necessitates accessible Sales and Marketing resources to tap into those recurring revenue opportunities. Meanwhile, having adequate cash reserves simplifies due diligence processes during these business engagements. We are poised for announcements that will showcase our advancements," Duncan elaborated on the plan in place.
