On July 28, 2022, Converge Technology Solutions Corp. (“Converge”) (TSX:CTS) (FSE:0ZB) (OTCQX:CTSDF), announced it has refinanced its existing $300 million asset-based lending (“ABL”) credit facility with a new 5-year $500 million global revolving credit facility.

The multi-currency senior revolving Global Credit Facility, led by JP Morgan and Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce (“CIBC”) as joint lead arrangers, also includes an uncommitted accordion feature of $100 million, for a total borrowing capacity of up to $600 million.

Converge’s global solution approach delivers advanced analytics, application modernization, cloud, cybersecurity, digital infrastructure, and digital workplace offerings to clients across various industries.

Jeff Rogers led the national interdisciplinary team, which included Michelle Boodhoo, Alex Ricchetti, Christina Kim, Kelsey Milward, Tushara Weerasooriya and Wael Rostom.
