Company Strengthens Balance Sheet as RFID Demand Allows Early Repayments
FREMONT, Calif. — December 30, 2020 — Identiv, Inc. (NASDAQ: INVE)
, a global leader in digital security and identification, today announced the Company repaid its term debt with East West Bank (“EWB”) and the first of two promissory notes to 21 April Funds ahead of schedule.
In early December, Identiv repaid its 12-month, $4.5 million term loan with East West Bank. Subsequently, on December 30, 2020, the Company repaid its initial $1.2 million promissory note to 21 April Fund LP. As a result, Identiv strengthened its balance sheet and positioned the Company for sustained growth funded from operations.

"The loans from East West Bank and April 21 Funds supported our growing RFID business, providing us with additional working capital to expand capacity and meet the demand surge we experienced in 2020, as well as predictable cash flows through the early phases of the Covid-19 period,” said Identiv’s CEO, Steven Humphreys. “With the RFID production capacity and team expansions we executed this year to deliver the revenue ramp, we were able to repay these loans earlier than initially planned.”
