Jefferson Capital Amends its Credit Facility to Support its Almost 20-Year Track Record of Growth and Profitability
By David Burton, Chief Executive Officer
St. Cloud, Minnesota – March 2, 2022 – Jefferson Capital Holdings LLC (“Jefferson Capital” or the “Company”), a leading purchaser and servicer of consumer charged off and bankruptcy receivables, is pleased to announce it has amended its $500 million senior secured revolving credit facility to include a new $150 million Canadian sub-facility to go alongside the $35 million UK sub-facility. The amendment became effective February 28, 2022. Citizens Bank, N.A., as Administrative Agent for the facility, led the process. The ability to fund Canadian assets within the facility was favorably received across the bank group.
The funding structure within the revolving credit facility enables the Company to fund a significant portion of its Canadian assets at rates more favorable than its current Canadian funding options. This new funding source along with the broader revolving credit facility and the previously issued $300 million unsecured bond allow the Company to continue its 20-year track record of growth and profitability. They also allow for continued expansion of purchasing and servicing in new market segments within and outside the U.S.
