Inventronics Announces Early Repayment of Subordinated Debt



    New Conventional Financing Signals Turnaround Complete

    CALGARY, April 19 /CNW/ - Inventronics Limited (IVX:TSXV), a designer and
manufacturer of custom metal enclosures for the communications, electronics
and other industries in North America, today announced that it has repaid
$3,500,000 of subordinated debt from the proceeds of a new loan.
    The five year subordinated secured debt was due in full in on
December 31, 2007 and bore interest at 8% per annum. Through arrangements with
BMO Bank of Montreal, Inventronics has secured a term/demand loan in the
amount of $3,500,000. This new facility is repayable over 76 months with
monthly payments that vary over the term. The interest rate is fixed for five
years at 6.3%. As part of the overall arrangement Inventronics also has a
$2,000,000 demand operating facility. None of the operating loan is currently
drawn.
    "This is a very important transaction for Inventronics", said Dan
Stearne, President & CEO. "The subdebt loan was critical five years ago for
the survival of the Company. The repayment through conventional lending at a
favourable interest rate is a clear signal that the turnaround of the company
has been successful. Now with specific cash requirements for repayment and no
other debt obligations, not even operating debt, we will be able to generate
free cash flow."
