DirectCash Payments Inc. Announces Successful Completion of Credit Facility Amendments to Increase Australian Dollar Sublimit

CALGARY, AB--(Marketwired - August 17, 2015) - - DirectCash Payments Inc. ("DCPayments" or the "Company") (TSX: DCI) today announced that it successfully closed the previously disclosed refinancing and amendments to increase the Australian dollar sublimit on the Company's credit facility. This amendment provides improved cash flow management through better matching of the denomination of cash flows and debt servicing and repayment, in addition to creating a natural hedge between Australian and Canadian currencies.

DCPayments currently has a $115 million five-year revolving credit facility available for general corporate purposes with a syndicate of four Canadian lenders and one Australian lender. This revolving credit facility includes a $20.0 million swing-line facility and an A$16.6 million ($17.25 million) Australian dollar sublimit. Upon completion of the amendments and closing of the refinancing, the Company will now draw additional Australian dollar denominated funds under the revolving credit facility and utilize these funds to repay amounts owing under the Company's term loan and to reduce amounts owing under the Canadian dollar denominated revolving facility.
