Bank Line of Credit

Endeavour has entered into a $75 million secured revolving credit facility with Scotiabank to enhance its access to cash, which should allow management to remain acquisitive while metal and stock prices are depressed. The Facility's interest rate ranges from 2.75% to 4.25% over LIBOR based on the Company's net debt to EBITDA ratio with a commitment fee for undrawn amounts. The El Cubo mine is expected to generate significant additional operating cash-flow over the next 6 months which should enable the Company to continue funding its capital and exploration projects from operating cash flow.
