America, and Southeast Asia. The transaction details are summarized

TriLinc is an impact investing fund that provides growth-stage loans and
trade finance to established small and medium enterprises (“SMEs”) in
developing economies where access to affordable capital is significantly
limited. Impact Investing is defined as investing with the specific
objective of achieving a competitive financial return as well as
creating positive, measurable impact in communities across the globe.

TriLinc recently approved $13.9 million in term loan and trade finance
transactions that meet the Company’s requirements for underwriting,
economic development, and societal advancement, as described below:

On September 6, 2017, TriLinc funded $537,738 as part of an existing
$8,000,000 senior secured revolving receivables trade finance facility
to a global metals trader based in the United Kingdom and operating in
Africa. With an interest rate of six month Libor + 6.00%, the
transaction is set to mature on May 8, 2018, and is secured by a bill of
exchange and sales contracts, with a collateral coverage ratio of 1.24x.
TriLinc’s financing will facilitate the trade of London Metal Exchange
registered, full plate nickel cathodes, which are used extensively as
inputs in infrastructure development projects worldwide.

On September 7, 2017, TriLinc funded $3,315,000 as part of an existing
$15,000,000 trade finance facility to a resource trader based in Hong
Kong and operating in Indonesia. Priced at 10.00%, the transaction is
set to mature on December 6, 2017 and is secured by a corporate and
personal guarantee, assignment of contract, and account charge over bank
account, with a collateral coverage ratio of 1.57x. TriLinc’s financing
will support the purchase and procurement of resources from mid-sized
suppliers in Indonesia to be sold to a large Indian multinational. The
borrower supports the supply chain on the ground, generally managing all
local logistics, regulatory issues, operational risk, and supplier
relationships. The borrower is indirectly supporting job creation and
fostering local economic development in Indonesia through its close
relationships with supplier companies who are constructing educational
and health facilities and enhancing infrastructure development, such as
electricity distribution, clean water access, and transportation.
Additionally, the borrower is directly addressing the growing
electricity demand in India stemming from economic development,
urbanization, and improved electricity infrastructure in many regions of
the country.

On September 12, 2017, TriLinc funded $86,500 as part of an existing
$9,000,000 revolving trade finance facility with an Ecuadorian shrimp
exporter, whose local suppliers of farm-raised shrimp are all licensed
by INP, an Ecuadorian institute specializing in biological,
technological, and economic research aimed at the management and
development of sustainable fisheries. With a fixed interest rate of
9.25%, the transaction is set to mature on October 22, 2018. The
financing is secured by inventory, accounts receivable, and purchase
contracts, with a collateral coverage ratio of 3.97x. The borrower uses
state-of-the-art, cost-efficient cooling and freezing equipment to
preserve the quality of its product and reduce its environmental
footprint. TriLinc’s financing will support the borrower’s position as
Ecuador’s seventh-largest shrimp exporter, and strengthen the borrower’s
ability to offer competitive wages, health services, and childcare
support to its employees.

On September 22, 2017, TriLinc funded $10,000,000 as part of a new
$10,000,000 four year senior secured term loan to a sustainably-driven
minor metals resource trader in China. Priced at 12.00%, the transaction
is set to mature on June 22, 2021 and is secured by an assignment of
receivables, pledge of inventory, and personal and corporate guarantees,
among others, with a collateral coverage ratio of 2.10x. The borrower is
vertically integrated as a producer, processer and developer of
specialty materials focusing on rare metals, specialty and advanced
materials, and recycling services. Sustainability is embedded in the
company’s business model as its primary operation is recycling rare
metal resources through the extrication of these metals from the
byproduct of metal and mineral, such as copper, lead, aluminum, zinc,
tin, and steel, mining. This results in the extension of the life of
metals and the reduction of waste without consuming additional natural
resources. The company produces advanced material products that are
widely used in the fields of electronics, photovoltaics, LED, infrared
materials, photo sensors, radiation detectors, pharmaceutical, glass and
ceramics. TriLinc’s financing will support the acquisition of rare
metals at an advance rate in order to build up stock levels and boost

“TriLinc’s recent investments demonstrate our commitment to supporting
sustainably-driven SMEs that are driving access to key inputs for
consumer goods and infrastructure development,” said Gloria Nelund, CEO
of TriLinc. “By financing companies, like the minor metals resource
trader that produces inputs for consumer products by recycling the
byproducts of processed metals, TriLinc aims to enhance supply chain
