Santa Rosa, CA, November 10, 2014 – TriVascular Technologies, Inc. (Nasdaq: TRIV) and CRG LP (formerly known as Capital Royalty) and its affiliate funds (“CRG”) today announced that they have amended and restated the term loan facility under which TriVascular previously borrowed $40 million in October 2012.  In connection with this amendment, the company will increase its borrowings under the facility by $10 million upon closing of the transaction, which is anticipated to be completed by the end of the month, subject to customary closing conditions.  Additionally, subject to the achievement of certain revenue milestones, TriVascular will have an option to access up to an additional $15 million on or before December 31, 2015.  This amendment extends the maturity date under the facility from September 30, 2017 to June 30, 2020, reduces the interest rate from 14.0 percent to 12.5 percent, and extends the interest only payment period through September 30, 2018. In addition, certain financial and other covenants were modified.
