Ainsworth Secures Credit Facility

Australia-based slot manufacturer Ainsworth Game Technology Ltd. has secured a new five-year secured-credit facility worth US$35 million, with United States-based lender Western Alliance Bancorp, for the primary purpose of paying down other debt.

“Proceeds of US$28 million from this new facility have been used to extinguish all company obligations under the prior revolving credit facility with Australia and New Zealand Banking Group Ltd (ANZ),” said Ainsworth last week in a filing with the Australian Securities Exchange.

The group was due to release its latest unaudited financial results on February 25. As of December 31, the company reported that it held cash balances amounting to AUD24 million (US$18.6 million), with net debt of AUD15 million as of the same date.
