Singing Machine Pays Off Revolving Loan With PNC Bank

FORT LAUDERDALE, FL--(Marketwired - Jan 26, 2016) - The Singing Machine Company, Inc. ("Singing Machine" or the "Company") (OTCQB: SMDM) today announced that on January 7, 2016, the Company fully paid down the balance of its revolving line of credit with PNC Bank. During its peak season, the Company borrowed approximately $10,000,000 from its line of credit.

As part of the Company's terms with PNC Bank, it must pay down the line of credit to a minimum of $1,000,000 for 30 consecutive days prior to April 30. The Company elected to completely pay off the line 7 days after its peak season.

Lionel Marquis, Company CFO, commented, "We are pleased to be in a favorable cash flow position that allowed us to pay our revolver so quickly. Our facility with PNC Bank gives us tremendous flexibility to finance our growth and it speaks volumes about our year that we were able to pay down the line so quickly. A few factors contributed to us paying down our line so quickly: we did a good job of managing our inventory for year-end and saw very strong sell-thru of over 90% across our retail channels. We also converted more of our sales to direct import and letter of credit at site payment basis which improved the average time to collect our receivables. Consequently, our cash flow position has greatly improved over previous years."
