GOOSE CREEK, SC – HireQuest, Inc. (Nasdaq: HQI), a national franchisor of on-demand, temporary, and commercial staffing services, today announced that the Company has closed a $63.2 million credit facility comprised of a $60.0 million Revolving Credit Facility and a $3.2 million Term Loan with its existing lender, Truist (formerly BB&T). The new facility replaces the Company’s prior $30 million revolving credit facility.
“This facility will help to fund the day-to-day operations of our existing franchisees. We also expect it to assist in our strategic growth initiatives,” said Richard Hermanns, CEO of HireQuest. “Combined with the cash generated from operations, access to this facility should provide HireQuest with greater capacity and flexibility to capitalize on future growth opportunities.”
Some proceeds from the Term Loan were used to pay off the Company’s prior credit facility, and to pay transaction fees and expenses incurred as part of this transaction. The new Revolving Credit Facility matures on June 29, 2026, and the Term Loan matures on June 29, 2036. For additional details please see HireQuest’s form 8-K filed with the SEC on June 29, 2021.
