Intersections Inc. Amends Credit Agreement and Focuses Strategy on Identity and Privacy Protection Services

CHANTILLY, Va., Dec. 15, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Intersections Inc. (NASDAQ: INTX), a leading provider of identity risk management and privacy protection services for consumers, today announced that it completed an amendment to its credit agreement with Crystal Financial LLC.

The amendment to the credit agreement provides for the cash on hand of the Company's Pet Health Monitoring segment plus up to $2.2 million of the Company's other cash on hand to be used to wind down the Pet Health Monitoring segment, the discontinuation of which was announced on December 1, 2016.  As of November 30, 2016, the Company's unaudited consolidated cash balance was approximately $14.1 million, including approximately $1.8 million of cash on hand in the Pet Health Monitoring segment.  The unaudited outstanding principal under the Credit Agreement was approximately $13.4 million as of November 30, 2016.

"Intersections is committed to focusing on our identity risk management and privacy protection strategy," said Michael R. Stanfield, Chairman and CEO. "Crystal Financial has been a valued partner as we explored the Voyce® market opportunity, and has now stepped up in a significant way as we concentrate resources on our unique position to serve consumers, partners, and affiliates with robust privacy protection services, including our newest product, Privacy Now™ with Watson."

Pursuant to the amendment, certain principal repayments required during the six months ending June 30, 2017 were eliminated and the remaining minimum principal repayments, commencing with the September 30, 2017 payment, were increased from $1.25 million to $1.4 million per quarter.  The amendment reduced the Minimum Cash Balance requirement for the six months ending June 30, 2017 and also reduced the Minimum Consolidated EBITDA requirements through the maturity date of March 21, 2019. These modifications will also support the Company's potential exit from other non-core business activities being considered by management.  

Additional information will be provided in a Form 8-K the Company will file with the Securities and Exchange Commission, which includes a copy of the First Amendment to the Credit Agreement and related exhibits.
