GLENVIEW, IL — Optimas Solutions, a global provider of integrated supply chain solutions, including fasteners and MRO consumables, announced Wednesday that it has completed a comprehensive refinancing of its debt structure which positions the company well for long-term growth. The transaction was completed on Dec. 30, 2020 and provides for enhanced liquidity, a five-year maturity, and significant reductions both in the quantum of debt and the interest expense going forward for Optimas.

According to Optimas chief financial officer Jim Japczyk, the refinancing will enable Optimas to support its operational growth objectives and to deliver against its Manufacturing Solutions business strategy announced in August 2020

“This event is quite transformational for Optimas. We showed strong execution against our strategy at the close of last year and this allows us to build on that," Japczyk said. “This refinancing will improve overall cashflow, providing more resources to expand and grow the business. We fully expect this transaction will result in existing and potential customers entrusting their business with Optimas with greater confidence as well as helping new and potential suppliers to engage more fully as we work to deliver mutually beneficial relationships."
