VANCOUVER, BC, Jan. 12, 2022 /CNW/ –
Corporate Credit Facility
Green Impact Partners Inc. (“GIP” or the “Company“) is pleased to announce the closing of a $30 million corporate credit facility (the “Credit Facility“) with a Schedule I Canadian bank. The Credit Facility consists of a two-year committed revolving loan to assist with day-to-day operating requirements, with interest only payments until maturity. The Credit Facility is secured by certain assets of the Company and includes customary terms and conditions. The Credit Facility bears interest at a rate of prime + 0.75% to prime + 1.75% based on certain covenants.
With the Credit Facility now in place coupled with the previously announced close of non-recourse project level debt financing for the GreenGas Colorado RNG Project and GIP’s internally generated cash flow forecast for 2022, the Company’s anticipated near-term financial commitments are fully funded. GIP continues to be well positioned to develop and execute on additional planned RNG projects in its portfolio.

The Iowa RNG Project is expected to include three locations and be of similar size, scale, and economics as the GreenGas Colorado RNG Project and is anticipated to generate in the range of 1,000 GJ’s per day of RNG.
