RIFCO Increases Securcor Trust Securitization Facility to $50 Million

RED DEER, AB, Sept. 26, 2011 /CNW/ - RIFCO Inc. (TSXV: RFC) is pleased to announce that it has received its 6th annual renewal on its funding facility with Securcor Trust. This renewal replaces the previous $30M facility with a new facility that has been increased to $50M. Securcor is a valued business partner and the Company's longest standing funder. The $20M increase in the level of commitment is a testament to our long standing partnership and an endorsement of RIFCO's business model.

This facility will allow us to securitize up to $50M in total loans this year. Loans sold in prior years are unaffected by the revised terms and have no effect on the utilization of the new facility limit.

In addition, RIFCO's strong loan performance within the facility continues to generate scheduled cash holdback releases in accordance with the facility parameters. The Company must continue to meet certain financial covenants under the renewal. The Company met all financial covenants in the prior year.

RIFCO employs a balanced approach for loan portfolio funding of equity, bank credit lines, subordinated debt and loan securitization funders.

The renewed facility continues under the Master agreement completed on March 31, 2005 for a term that will expire on September 30, 2012.
