LAS VEGAS–(BUSINESS WIRE)–PLAYSTUDIOS, Inc. (Nasdaq: MYPS) (“PLAYSTUDIOS” or the “Company”), an award-winning developer of free-to-play casual mobile and social games that offer real-world rewards to loyal players, announced today that it has entered into a new $75 million, five-year secured revolving credit facility (“New Credit Facility”) to support its future growth initiatives. The New Credit Facility also provides the Company with an option to increase the credit facility for up to an additional $75 million.
“This new credit facility adds liquidity to our already strong cash position, lowers our costs of capital, and represents a significant vote of confidence from our financial partners,” said Andrew Pascal, Founder, Chairman, and Chief Executive Officer of PLAYSTUDIOS. “In addition, the facility provides the financial flexibility needed to execute on our long-term plans to successfully grow the business.”
The New Credit Facility replaces the existing revolving credit facility and will mature on June 24, 2026. The interest rates are determined on the basis of either a Eurodollar rate or an Alternate Base Rate plus an applicable margin. The applicable margins are initially 2.50%, in the case of Eurodollar loans, and 1.50%, in the case of Alternate Base Rate loan and are subject to floors of 0.00% and 1.00%, respectively. The applicable margin is subject to adjustment based upon the Company’s Total Net Leverage Ratio (as defined in the New Credit Facility agreement). Borrowings under the New Credit Facility may be borrowed, repaid, and re-borrowed by the Company and are available for working capital, general corporate purposes, and permitted acquisitions.
The New Credit Facility agreement contains customary financial covenants as well as affirmative and negative covenants customary for transactions of this type, including limitations with respect to indebtedness, liens, investments, dividends, disposition of assets, change in business and transactions with affiliates. Loans under the New Credit Facility are secured by a perfected first priority security interest in substantially all of our tangible and intangible assets.
JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A., Silicon Valley Bank and Wells Fargo Securities, LLC, served as joint bookrunners and joint lead arrangers. JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A., serves as the administrative agent.
