("OneRoof Energy") (TSXV:ON) today announced that it signed a loan agreement with North Sky Capital's Alliance Fund II. The loan agreement was arranged by GoldenSet Capital, a sub-advisor to Alliance Fund II, and will provide the Company with a US$20 million loan facility (the "Facility").
"GoldenSet Capital and North Sky Capital are great partners," said David Field, president and chief executive officer of OneRoof Energy. "The residential solar industry continues to expand at a fast pace. To meet the demand of this capital intensive industry, we are pleased to be working with this group who have been supportive with continued funding."
Loan amounts may be drawn by the Company under the Facility from time to time subject to the Company's satisfaction of certain borrowing base and other funding conditions. Amounts under the Facility remaining undrawn will be subject to a non-use fee of 0.50% per annum of the committed, but undrawn portion of the Facility.
