Strategic Highlights for the Fourth Quarter of Fiscal 2013
  • On June 3, 2013 Full Circle Capital closed a new three-year, $32.5 million revolving credit facility with Sovereign Bank, N.A. Borrowings under the facility bear interest based on a tiered rate structure, depending upon utilization, ranging from LIBOR plus 3.25% to 4.00% per annum, or from Sovereign’s prime rate plus 1.25% to 2.00% per annum, based on Full Circle’s election at the time of borrowing. This represents a significant improvement in the cost of debt capital from Full Circle’s prior revolving credit facility, which bore interest at LIBOR plus 5.50% per annum.
  • On June 28, 2013 Full Circle Capital issued $18.75 million ($21.1 million including the subsequent exercise of the overallotment option) of seven-year, 8.25% Notes that will mature on June 30, 2020. The Notes can be called any time after June 30, 2016 and pay interest quarterly beginning September 30, 2013.
