CASTLE ROCK, CO -- (Marketwired) -- 09/04/14 -- Where Food Comes From, Inc. (d.b.a. IMI Global, Inc.) (OTCQB: WFCF), the most trusted resource for third-party verification of food production practices, today announced it has strengthened its balance sheet with the addition of $1.8 million in equity capital and a $0.5 million revolving line of credit.
The Company sold 900,000 shares of restricted common stock to two accredited investors for $1.8 million in a private, non-brokered transaction with no fees. The Company subsequently closed on a $500,000 revolving line of credit with Castle Rock Bank. The line carries an interest rate of 3.75% and will replace the Company's 5.75%, $200,000 term financing with Great Western Bank, which is being retired.
"Our new credit line is larger and carries a more favorable interest rate than our prior line," said John Saunders, Chairman and CEO of Where Food Comes From. "The new line and equity infusion have more than doubled our borrowing power and cash/cash equivalents balance, giving us more flexibility to respond quickly to general growth opportunities and to advance our M&A strategy. We appreciate the confidence our new investors are showing in our business prospects."
