RELM Wireless Amends Revolving Credit Facility With Silicon Valley Bank

WEST MELBOURNE, Fla., Oct. 20 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- RELM Wireless Corporation (NYSE AMEX: RWC) today announced that it has amended its revolving credit facility with Silicon Valley Bank (SVB), the primary subsidiary of SVB Financial Group (Nasdaq: SIVB), as follows:

  • maximum borrowing availability has been increased to $5.0 million from $3.5 million;
  • the maturity date has been extended to December 31, 2012 from October 23, 2010;
  • the variable rate at which borrowings bear interest has been reduced to prime rate plus 50 basis points;
  • the Company's minimum "tangible net worth" requirement has been reset at $25.35 million,  such minimum requirement still continuing to be subject to increase by (i) 50% of quarterly net profits and (ii) 75% of the net proceeds received from issuances of equity and issuances of "subordinated debt"; and
  • the unused revolving line fee has been reduced to 20 basis points.

The Company continues to be subject to the substantially same customary borrowing terms and conditions as it was prior to amending the credit facility. The Company currently has $2.0 million of borrowings outstanding under the amended credit facility and additional borrowing availability of approximately $1.1 million.

"We value, and are pleased to continue, our longstanding relationship with SVB; first established in 2003.  The amended facility is intended to provide additional working capital at a reduced interest cost, if needed, to execute our strategic business plans and growth initiatives," stated RELM President and Chief Executive Officer Dave Storey.  "SVB understands our business and has been instrumental in its success, consistently demonstrating confidence in our operations and plans for future growth."

For additional information about the Company's amended revolving credit facility with Silicon Valley Bank, please see the Company's Current Report on Form 8-K dated October 20, 2010 to be filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission later today.
