KALRAY SECURES UP TO EUR 15M IN NON-DILUTIVE BANK FINANCING TO SUPPORT GROWTH


Grenoble, 17 June 2024 - Kalray (Euronext Growth Paris: ALKAL), a leading provider of hardware and software solutions to accelerate data-intensive and AI workflows from Cloud to Edge, is pleased to announce the establishment of a scalable debt solution ("Dynamic Revolving Credit Facility") with BNP Paribas, Kalray's historical banking partner since 2008. Amounting to up to €15m over a period of 3 years, this financing will support the continuous growth of its activities, particularly its expanding prospects in AI and Generative AI (GenAI), thanks to the merger project with Pliops[1].

 

This loan, mentioned in the press release dated June 3, 2024, confirms Kalray's ability to use non-dilutive financing to support its development and growth.

With a maximum amount of €15m over 3 years, this loan will be regularly adjusted based on the operational and financial performance of the company, and benefits from insights generated by a proprietary data analytics platform.

BNP Paribas Growth Solutions offers both non-dilutive and venture debt funding to innovative companies across Europe.

 

"I would like to thank BNP Paribas, our historical banking partner, for their renewed support in continuing to support high-growth companies like Kalray," said Eric Baissus, Chairman of the Executive Board of Kalray.

 

Christopher KRAMME, Head of Growth Solutions at BNP Paribas, who structured the debt investment, said: “We are excited about KALRAY's advanced technology and growing commercial traction, and are pleased to be able to accompany that growth in the coming years.”

 

“This financing tool, quite new in Europe, is a complementary means to accompany fast-growing innovative companies in their journey, beyond equity”, said Pierre LAFORGE, Senior Banker specialised in innovative companies. “Thanks to a high level of flexibility & scalability, this financing will be a growth accelerator over time & highlights the key role of BNP Paribas for innovation across Europe and beyond”.
