“I am pleased to announce we have executed definitive agreements for a new US$28.5M Credit Facility with Nebari,” stated Alexandra Woodyer Sherron, CEO and President of Empress Royalty.  “We would like to thank Nebari for their continued support of Empress’ growth and strategic vision.  The refinancing will enable us to execute on our pipeline of opportunities. We are extremely excited for the future of Empress as this facility, combined with our projected revenue from our revenue generating investments, will allow us to further advance our development plans for Empress.”

Juan Alvarez, Managing Director at Nebari, stated “We are pleased to be extending our support of Empress Royalty in their growth strategy by entering into this Credit Facility and upsizing the Accordion.
