Pulse Systems Announces New $8.5 Million Credit Facility

CONCORD, Calif., May 4 /PRNewswire/ -- Pulse Systems announced today that the company has recently closed a $8.5 million credit facility through the Structured Finance Group at Fifth Third Bank. This new credit facility consists of a $7.0 million term loan and a $1.5 million revolving working capital line of credit.

"Our ability to close a credit arrangement of this scope in today's challenging banking environment speaks to the strength of the company's cash flow and its solid performance in the medical device industry over the past several years," said John Fife, Chairman of Pulse Systems LLC and Managing Partner at Chicago Venture Partners.

"Accomplishment of this major re-financing is another important milestone for Pulse Systems, and marks our continued success in carrying out our long-term business strategy for the company," commented Herb Bellucci, President and CEO of Pulse Systems.

Funds from the term loan will be used to pay off mezzanine debt incurred in the 2004 acquisition of the company by Chicago Venture Partners. The revolving line of credit is available to the company for working capital purposes and other short-term cash needs.

"One key catalyst to economic recovery is the availability of capital to creditworthy borrowers," said Neil Prendergast, senior vice president and Structured Finance Sales Manager with Fifth Third Bank. "At Fifth Third, we are committed to responsible lending for our commercial clients."
