Approximate $3.1 million in debt reduction leaves substantially no outstanding debt in the Company’s capital structure

Annual interest expense savings expected to be approximately $0.3 million

FOUNTAIN VALLEY, Calif., October 06, 2021--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Moving iMage Technologies (NYSE American: MITQ) ("MiT"), a leading digital cinema technology company, today announced that it used existing cash on hand to retire approximately $3.1 million in debt, including accrued interest and debt retirement fees, during the first quarter of fiscal 2022, eliminating substantially all short and long-term debt liabilities on the Company’s balance sheet. No proceeds from the Company’s July 12, 2021 IPO were used to execute the retirement. The Company’s remaining debt is a second Payroll Protection Program ("PPP") loan, which it expects to be entirely forgiven. MiT expects to realize annualized interest expense savings of nearly $0.3 million.

"Alongside our IPO, becoming essentially debt free is the second significant milestone for MiT over the past few months," said Michael Sherman, chief financial officer. "This paydown immediately transformed the balance sheet while providing us with increased liquidity to invest in growth initiatives and expand margins."

As stated in the Company’s S-1/A filing on July 7, 2021, proceeds from the Company’s July 12, 2021 IPO will be used for acquisitions and other growth opportunities.
