Synalloy closes $45 million credit facility with BB&T

RICHMOND, US: Synalloy Corporation (SYNL) has announced the closing of a new asset-based (ABL) credit facility with its bank, Branch Banking and Trust Company (BB&T), and its entrance into a purchase and sale agreement for sale-leaseback of its real estate properties in Tennessee, South Carolina, Texas and Ohio.

Synalloy Corporation is a growth-oriented company that engages in a number of diverse business activities including the production of stainless steel pipe, fiberglass and steel storage tanks and specialty chemicals and the master distribution of seamless carbon pipe and tubing.

The ABL with BB&T is in the amount of $45.0 million and will be used to refinance the existing line of credit and two term loans currently outstanding to BB&T in the aggregate amount of approximately $24.2 million.

The sale-leaseback carries a purchase price of $22.0 million, and the company expects net proceeds (after transaction-related costs) of approximately $21.75 million.  Upon closing of the sale-leaseback, the company will enter into absolute triple net leases with the purchaser pursuant to which the company will lease the locations for an initial term of 20 years, with two renewal options of 10 years each.  The closing of the transaction is scheduled for October 2016.

"The ABL and expected sale-leaseback combine to provide the company with maximum funding capacity and flexibility while maintaining a very attractive weighted average cost of capital. We expect to use the funds mainly to retire term debt, finance high ROI capital projects and pursue acquisitions," Craig Bram, president and CEO, Synalloy.
