OneWater Marine Inc. Completes Floorplan Financing Expansion
Increases Line of Credit to $500 Million to Support Acquisition Pipeline and Organic Growth
BUFORD, Ga., Jan. 04, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- OneWater Marine Inc. (NASDAQ: ONEW) (“OneWater” or the “Company”) today announced it has entered into the Seventh Amended and Restated Inventory Financing Facility (“The Facility”) with Wells Fargo Commercial Distribution Finance LLC, to increase the inventory-based line of credit to $500 million, up from $392.5 million, and extend the term through December 1, 2023.
“OneWater has been scaling at an exhilarating pace resulting from continued levels of consumer demand and our ability to capitalize on the robust M&A market across the marine industry. The expansion of our financing flexibility enables us to continue executing on our growth strategy, advance our leadership position in the industry and return value to our shareholders,” said Austin Singleton, Chief Executive Officer for OneWater.
The Facility is expected to provide sufficient inventory financing capacity for the next two years. Borrowings under the Facility bear interest at the Adjusted 30-Day Average SOFR plus a spread based on type and inventory aging. The Facility also includes certain financial and non-financial covenants, consistent with the previous facility, including provisions that the funded debt to EBITDA ratio must not exceed 2.00 to 1.00, and that the Company’s fixed charge coverage ratio on a consolidated basis must be at least 1.00 to 1.50.
