NEWS RELEASE March 20th 2012
Significant Working Capital Credit Increase
VICTORIA, BRITISH COLUMBIA, March 20th, 2012 – FLEXIBLE SOLUTIONS INTERNATIONAL, INC. (NYSE Amex: FSI, FRANKFURT: FXT), is the developer and manufacturer of biodegradable polymers for oil extraction, detergent ingredients, water treatment and crop nutrient availability chemistry, as well as biodegradable and environmentally safe water and energy conservation technologies. Today the Company announces it has obtained increased credit facilities from the Chicago division of an international bank.
CEO, Dan O’Brien states, “I am pleased to announce FSI has received a $5.0 million revolving line of credit (LOC) at 3.75% and a $1.4 million secured loan at the same interest rate from a major Chicago based bank. This combined credit access of $6.4 million replaces the $1.5 million LOC obtained last year. The credit will be used for working capital requirements. Although very little of the credit is currently utilized, it is anticipated that our high growth rates will require significantly higher levels of inventory and receivables over the next several quarters resulting in temporary credit use. Availability of this credit ensures that the Company will not need to access the equity markets for growth capital in the foreseeable future.”
