TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - March 26, 2014) - Grenville Strategic Royalty Corp. (TSX VENTURE:GRC) ("Grenville") is pleased to announce that effective immediately, Mr. Donnacha Rahill has been appointed as the company's new Chief Financial Officer, with Mr. Oleg Dubrovsky moving to the position of Controller.
Prior to joining Grenville, Mr. Rahill spent over 20 years in various CFO and finance capacities, primarily in the finance and leasing industries, including as CFO of De Lage Landen's Canadian subsidiary. During Mr. Rahill's tenure, De Landen's Canadian subsidiary originated $1 billion in new business and produced a significant return on equity.
Grenville's Chief Executive Officer, William (Bill) R. Tharp, commented: "We've had consistent, professional management input in building out the financial backbone of our company since inception, with Mr. Dubrovsky being integral to this process. The appointment of Mr. Rahill to our team strengthens our financial expertise and positions us well to keep our current rate of growth in place".
Grenville is a Toronto-based company that was formed to provide royalty-based finance solutions by acquiring revenue streams generated by growing industrial and technology businesses. Grenville has identified a large and underserviced finance market for companies generating up to $50 million in revenue, many of which are well managed and generating improving cash flow, but face difficult financing hurdles from traditional debt and equity markets. The non-dilutive royalty financing structure offered by Grenville can bridge the financing needs of these companies until traditional debt or equity is available to them on more attractive commercial terms. The application of Grenville's royalty financing structure into sectors not traditionally serviced by royalty companies represents a new and innovative financing model - Capital Simplified - that has already attracted a considerable number of opportunities with attractive return potential.
