REDWOOD CITY, CA / ACCESSWIRE / December 27, 2021 /Biotricity Inc. (NASDAQ:BTCY) a modern medical technology company delivering innovative, remote biometric monitoring solutions, today announced the successful completion of a $12 million non-convertible debt financing.
5-year term deal strengthens balance sheet, positions company for multiple new product launches in 2022
Dr. Waqaas Al-Siddiq, Biotricity Founder and CEO commented, “This capital infusion represents the strength of our recurring revenue business model and validates the confidence in our plan with lenders. It greatly strengthens our capital position in a manner that is non-dilutive to our equity shareholders and eliminates a current debt instrument that carried less favorable terms. This also follows our August equity raise that helped facilitate our Nasdaq listing. As a supplement to our existing capital reserves, this augments our healthy capital base to finance inventory and support our Annual Recurring Revenues (ARR).
The $12 million capital infusion terms provided by SWK Funding LLC (NASDAQ:SWKH), an investor in healthcare and life science companies, include two years, interest-only period and a 40% principal balloon payment at the end of its five year term. The intended use of proceeds is to replace existing less favorable debt that is coming due, support the Company’s inventory, and finance annual recurring revenue (ARR) subscriptions.
In his December 7 Letter to Shareholders, Dr. Al-Siddiq discussed his product roadmap for a full pipeline of revolutionary remote cardiac monitoring devices slated for commercialization in 2022.
“Using debt rather than equity financing allows us to avoid shareholder dilution at this time.” Dr. Waqaas added. “We’re excited to have the opportunity to aggressively accelerate the execution of our business plan.”
Winston Black, CEO of SWK stated, “We strongly believe in the hard and important work Biotricity is doing to revolutionize cardiac health monitoring for the benefit of patients and healthcare practitioners. We are confident that the Company will successfully meet its 2022 commercialization and sales goals on its way to scaling to higher levels of profitability in the years ahead.”
