Blue Sun Biodiesel Raises Capital: Closes $3 Million Unsecured Term Loan
GOLDEN, Colo., April 4, 2008 /PRNewswire/ -- Blue Sun Biodiesel recently closed on an unsecured $3 million dollar loan. The loan was made by a private individual. Blue Sun is also in the process of finalizing a separate credit instrument to support continued infrastructure development.
"With the failed M-Wave merger and its attendant funding, we needed to arrange interim funding to assure the uninterrupted supply of B100 for our growing customer base and this facility will provide that assurance," said Blue Sun's CEO Jeff Probst. "We will use these funds to acquire, blend and distribute our branded Fusion(TM) and M-Tech industry leading specialty fuels to our customers in fourteen western states."
Blue Sun will use the infrastructure credit instrument to support fuel terminal development in 2008. Blue Sun plans to build up to 10 new blending/terminal locations to support the distribution network for their Blue Sun B100 and B20 diesel fuels.
"The backing we've received from the financial community validates Blue Sun's strategic direction," said Blue Sun President Michael Miller. "The infusion will help drive our next stage of growth, allows us to leverage our vertically integrated model and to complete projects which expand availability of our biodiesel products. The year has started off fast with first-quarter volumes up over three fold from a year ago."
