DMC Global Closes $300 Million Senior Secured Credit Facility

BROOMFIELD, Colo., Feb. 07, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- DMC Global Inc. (Nasdaq: BOOM) today announced it has closed a $300 million, five-year senior secured credit facility consisting of a $200 million revolving credit facility, a $50 million term loan and a $50 million delayed draw term loan. The facility replaces DMC’s prior $200 million credit facility.

“This new credit agreement strengthens our balance sheet and improves our near-term financial flexibility as we pursue strategic alternatives for our DynaEnergetics and NobelClad businesses, and seek to transform DMC’s portfolio,” said Michael Kuta, president and CEO. “Our enhanced liquidity will support our growth strategies in the architectural framing industry, including acquiring the remaining 40% minority interest in Arcadia Products.”

In December 2021, DMC acquired a 60% controlling interest in Arcadia Products LLC, a leading provider of architectural building products to the commercial and ultra-high-end residential construction industries. A put/call option on the remaining 40% stake in Arcadia becomes exercisable on December 23, 2024. The current estimated value of the put/call option, net of a tax bridge loan, is approximately $163 million.

“This new credit facility holds our leverage and debt service costs to a prudent level,” said Eric Walter, CFO. “We are pleased to have the strong support of our lending group, which has been expanded from four to seven institutions.”

Walter said DMC’s leverage ratio following the close of the credit facility remains at 1.25x and is expected to be approximately 2.0x if the Company executes the call on the 40% minority interest in Arcadia.

The $50 million term loan and approximately $70 million of the $200 million revolving credit facility will be used to refinance DMC’s existing bank debt. The $50 million delayed draw term loan and unused capacity on the revolving credit facility will be available to support the purchase of the remaining 40% of Arcadia.

The term loan requires annual amortization of 5% for the first two years, 7.5% for the next two years, and 10% in the fifth year with a bullet at maturity. The covenants of the credit facility have a maximum total leverage ratio of 3.00x and minimum debt service coverage ratio of 1.25x.

KeyBank, N.A., is serving as administrative agent, and the banking syndicate is made up of U.S. Bank, Bank of America, Bank of Oklahoma, CIBC, Commerce Bank, and Comerica Bank.
