DALLAS, TX, Jan. 15, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via NEWMEDIAWIRE -- Zenergy Brands, Inc. (OTCPK:ZNGY), the nation's leading next-generation utility, announced today it has closed a $10 Million Debenture facility with TCA Global Credit Master Fund, LP ("TCA"), a fund specializing in senior, secured lending and advisory services.
After executing the initial Term Sheet on August 29, 2018, and several months of due diligence, Zenergy is thrilled to announce the closing of this transaction, effective December 26, 2018. The Company had been working around the clock towards this closing and believes that it is now in a position to effectively realize its vision to converge responsible energy use and management, smart controls/building automation, and energy conservation and efficiency under the Zenergy brand.
"In November 2018, TCA representatives, including the lead underwriter, visited our offices and we spent the day reviewing our proprietary systems and procedures, while discussing the various assets known as ‘Zero Cost' contracts," said Mr. Joshua Campbell, Zenergy's Senior Vice President of Operations. "Going through this in-depth process reaffirmed our belief that our Zero Cost Program has real game-changing potential in the utility industry if we can continue to find good scalable funding sources."
Per the transaction, TCA has provided Zenergy with the initial tranche of $1.6 Million and will fund additional tranches up to $10 Million as the Company executes new revenue-generating contracts—Zero Cost and other related services, subject to TCA's sole discretion. Zenergy is forecasting that it will acquire several new contracts in Q1 and Q2 of 2019, and intends to use the Debenture facility to fulfill its obligations under these anticipated Managed Energy Services Agreements.
Zenergy CEO, Mr. Alex Rodriguez, commented, "This is a monumental step in our lifecycle - we've got a truly innovative market-relevant offering in the Zero Cost Program. We believe that this debenture facility can allow us to grow the program effectively throughout 2019. I definitely view this event as the closing of one chapter and the opening of a new one for Zenergy."
Another characteristic of the transaction is the customized repayment schedule, which is a hybrid model that starts with interest-only payments for the first six months and then ramps up over the term, with the final six months representing more substantial balloon-style payments. The respective payments are due in monthly installments beginning on January 26, 2019, and ending on June 26, 2021.
"This unique repayment model is a perfect fit for our Zero Cost contracts and demonstrates to us an institutional lender's effective understanding of our assets and how we generate revenue and asset value," remarked Mr. John Brooks Klingenbeck, Zenergy Vice President of Business Development.
