Furniture World News on

Decorize, Inc. announced that it has secured a $4,000,000 line of credit with Bank of America N.A. to be used for working capital. Also, the Decorize Board of Directors has approved a proposal from management to re-price the existing outstanding warrants in exchange for reducing applicable exercise periods. "The company has been profitable this fiscal year in four of the first seven months, including the last three months. The management team has done an outstanding job in positioning the company for future growth," said Steve Crowder, President and Chief Executive Officer of Decorize, Inc. "We believe that the combination of these two latest financing events will provide the company sufficient working capital that will have an immediate and significant positive impact to the business." The line of credit with Bank of America will provide the company working capital resulting in efficiencies in its dealings with overseas vendors and Decorize subsidiaries in China and Indonesia. "We believe that this relationship with Bank of America is confirmation that the financial community is beginning to recognize the positive changes," said Brent Olson, Vice President of Finance for Decorize, Inc. Terms of the line of credit required a guaranty which has been provided by SRC Holdings Corporation and Quest Capital Alliance LLC in exchange for additional warrants and a reduction in the applicable strike prices of other outstanding warrants and shares of preferred stock. SRC Holdings has also agreed to exchange their current $750,000 demand note for a new note that contains an option to convert the note to shares of the company's common stock. "SRC Holdings believes that Decorize has assembled an excellent leadership team capable of growing fast and profitably in a very big and fragmented marketplace," stated Jack Stack, President and Chief Executive Officer of SRC Holdings Corporation. The amendments to the outstanding 5.1 million warrants will provide an opportunity for the company to quickly raise additional capital in the next 12 months, which can be used for expansion of its production capacity. In addition, the proposed amendments should have a positive impact on the balance sheet by removing the significant overhang of dilutive warrants that are currently outstanding within the next 12 months. "This past year has been a transition year for Decorize. We are on our plan to become the market leader in the home accent category of the home furnishings industry," commented Steve Crowder.
