Willdan Group Completes Refinancing

ANAHEIM, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oct. 5, 2023-- Willdan Group, Inc. (NASDAQ: WLDN) today announced that on September 29, 2023, the Company completed the refinancing of its credit facilities and entered into a new three-year credit agreement (the “Credit Agreement”) with a syndicate of financial institutions as lenders and BMO Bank, N.A. (“BMO”) as administrative agent. The Credit Agreement provides for (i) a $100 million term loan and (ii) a $50 million revolving credit facility, each maturing on September 29, 2026. The Credit Agreement replaces the Company’s Amended and Restated Credit Agreement dated June 26, 2019.

"Replacing our prior credit facility reinforces our belief in Willdan’s strength, and it positions us to continue our momentum of growth that started during the fourth quarter of 2022,” said Tom Brisbin, Willdan’s CEO and Chairman.

The Company used the proceeds from the Credit Agreement’s term loan to repay and terminate the prior credit agreement, which was scheduled to mature on June 26, 2024, as well as to fund certain fees and expenses associated with the Credit Agreement. The Company also intends to use the Credit Agreement to provide working capital, finance capital expenditures and acquisitions, and other general corporate purposes.
