Tefron lenders agree to continue & expand financing
Jan '10
Tefron Ltd. the global leader in seamless and engineered apparel, announced that it has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with its principal lenders to continue and expand its line of credit.

The MOU, signed on 6 January 2010 with Bank Leumi le-Israel Ltd., Bank Discount le-Israel Ltd. and Bank Hapoalim Ltd. effectively ends a month of financial uncertainty for Tefron.

“With the signing of the MOU, we have removed the last element of doubt about Tefron's financial picture. This closes the chapter on what has clearly been a challenging month for our company,” said Jacob Gelbard, Chairman, Tefron Ltd.

The MOU ensures the continuation of the existing $28.95 million USD line of credit and adds an additional $1.8 million USD for a total credit line of US $30.75 million USD. The MOU also calls for the addition of a minimum of $4 million USD in equity investment – an investment major shareholders have committed to make at an upcoming rights offering.

“This successful resolution of our financial challenges allows Tefron to focus on the most urgent work: executing our turnaround plan and meeting customer needs with superior products,” said Gelbard. “The continued loyalty and support of those customers and our industry-leading technology and innovation were clearly key in reaching this agreement with our financial partners.”

Tefron Ltd. counts among is customers some of the world's most recognized brands including Nike, Patagonia, Victoria's Secret, Calvin Klein and Lululemon Athletica.
