TORONTO, May 7, 2024 /PRNewswire/ – DeFi Technologies Inc. (the “Company” or “DeFi Technologies“) (CBOE CA: DEFI) (GR: R9B) (OTC: DEFTF), a financial technology company that pioneers the convergence of traditional capital markets with the world of decentralised finance (“DeFi“), is pleased to announce that its subsidiary Valour Inc. (“Valour“), a leading issuer of exchange traded products (“ETPs“) that provide simplified access to digital assets, has successfully repaid US$19.5 million in outstanding loans (the “Loans“). As of April 30, 2024, and due to favourable business conditions, Valour has fully repaid balances of US$6 million and US$13.5 million, which were secured by BTC and ETH collateral, respectively. No further equity or debt was raised to repay the Loan.

The Loans, which were structured with “open term” tenures allowing for flexible repayment, were fully repaid on April 30, 2024. This strategic financial management will result in substantial savings for Valour, eliminating monthly interest expense of approximately US$226,000, or US$2,712,000 annually.

Furthermore, the repayment of the Loans released digital asset collateral back into Valour’s operational fold (approximately 100 BTC and 5,000 ETH). These digital assets, previously tied up as collateral, are now available to be staked and generate additional top-line revenue for Valour.

This development is a testament to Valour’s financial health and prudent capital management. By freeing up additional digital assets and reducing financial liabilities, Valour has continued its commitment to leveraging its financial agility to enhance its market position and capitalize on emerging opportunities within the digital assets space.
