LAVAL, Québec, July 30, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Orbite Technologies Inc. (NEX: ORT.H) ("Orbite" or the "Company") today provided an update on its continuing efforts to emerge from the protection of the Companies' Creditors Arrangement Act ("CCAA").

Orbite completes the Transaction

Further to its press release of July 16, 2018, the Company announces it has received both the CDN$3.5 million Settlement Payment and the CDN$4.0 million DIP Loan. The terms and conditions of the DIP Loan as well as the rank of the security granted are disclosed in more detail in the Monitor's report and on SEDAR.

Update on the DIP Financings announced in August 2017 and June 2018

Computershare Trust Company of Canada in its capacity as trustee for the holders of the 2015 ITC Debentures (the "Lender") of the $6.8 million DIP financing announced on August 2, 2017 and of the $650,000 Second DIP financing announced on June 11, 2018, confirmed to the Company that it waived Orbite's obligation to repay the borrowed sums under both DIP financings until October 1, 2018. Orbite expects such waiver to be further extended by the Lender in order to allow for the completion of the repairs to the calcination equipment before having to repay such borrowed sums.

The Company will provide further updates as developments occur.

There can be no guarantees that Company will otherwise be successful in its restructuring efforts and will emerge from CCAA protection.
