CARLSBAD, Calif., Feb. 3, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Natural Alternatives International, Inc. (“NAI”) (Nasdaq: NAII), a leading formulator, manufacturer and marketer of customized nutritional supplements, today announced that yesterday it fully repaid all of its outstanding debt by paying off its $10 million credit line with Wells Fargo Bank.
The credit line was initially drawn down to provide safety to the balance sheet during the initial uncertainty brought on by the declaration of the pandemic in March of 2020, and has remained on our balance sheet until this repayment. This line of credit is now again available to NAI to draw upon through its term ending November of 2022.
Mark A. Le Doux, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of NAI stated, “We thank our commercial banking partner for their steadfast support of our enterprise during the last 30+ years of our relationship. With the robust business environment of the past year for our company, brought on by a confluence of factors, the need for this capital on our balance sheet has been deemed unnecessary by our senior management team. The shift in consumer sentiments expressed by the overwhelming adoption of consumer behavior in support of dietary supplementation to help bolster overall health is not showing any signs of subsiding, and free cash flow as a consequence has been sufficient to meet all of our financial needs.”
