MADISON HEIGHTS, MICHIGAN, Feb. 12, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- InfuSystem Holdings, Inc. (NYSE American: INFU) (“InfuSystem” or the “Company”), a leading national provider of infusion pumps and related services for the healthcare industry in the United States and Canada, today announced it has entered into a fifth amendment to its existing credit facility with JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A., effective February 5, 2019. The amendment amends the credit agreement originally entered into on March 23, 2015. The amended terms include, among other things, an increased equipment line capacity, an increased revolving credit limit, and revisions to the Leverage and Fixed Charged Ratios.
Rich DiIorio, president and chief executive officer of InfuSystem commented, “Over the past 18 months we have reformed our operations, substantially increased our operating cash flow, and demonstrated the company’s ability to rapidly reduce its debt balance when circumstances warrant. We believe that these changes and our improved performance are reflected by the amendment and the increased operating flexibility it provides. This flexibility will be important in the coming months, as we pursue potentially significant market share gains in our core oncology business.”
Mr. DiIorio continued, “With the launch of InfuSystem Mobile we are raising the bar in the areas of customer service and patient safety, and as a result, we continue to push elastomerics out of the market. At the same time, we understand that a major competitor is implementing changes to its product offerings that we believe put InfuSystem in position to potentially capture considerable additional market share. As a result, we expect to make investments in additional pumps and infrastructure during the first half of this year. If we are successful in capitalizing on this opportunity, we should see significant and sustained growth in revenue and EBITDA in the second half of 2019 and into 2020.”
