GE Amends Infraredx's Credit Facility

Zacks Equity Research

GE Capital, Healthcare Financial Services, an operating unit of General Electric Company (GE), recently amended the existing $6.6 million senior secured credit facility of medical device company Infraredx, Inc. to provide an additional multi-draw term-loan facility. It also served as the administrative agent and sole lender for the $13.4 million-worth term loan for Infraredx. The debt financing will augment Infraredx’s liquidity and working capital requirements to fuel further growth.

Burlington, MA-based Infraredx improves safety and efficacy of coronary stenting and offers medical practitioners all the critical information for superior decision making in treating coronary artery disease.
