By Methes Energies International Ltd. | July 17, 2013

Methes Energies International Ltd., a renewable energy company that offers an array of products and services to biodiesel fuel producers, announces that its wholly owned subsidiary, Methes Energies Canada Inc., has finalized a CDN$1.6 million debt financing facility through a local Ontario, Canada, lender. Methes Energies will use the proceeds to pay off its outstanding term loan of CDN$1.5 million which was entered into in June 2012.

The new loan carries an annual interest rate of 12 percent compared to the 23 percent interest rate on the June 2012 Loan. The new loan requires monthly interest-only payments until it matures in July 2014. The loan is secured by Methes Energies' Sombra, Ontario, real property and other personal property, excluding its leasehold interest in rail cars and its inventory, accounts receivable and their proceeds.

Nicholas Ng, President of Methes Energies said, “We are pleased to have closed on this new loan allowing us to save thousands of dollars per month. The savings will allow us to continue to invest in our growth strategy.”
