10. Long-Term Debt:
New Casino Projects Financing
In 2006, SIGA entered into an agreement with a financial institution (Bank) to provide $20 million in
bridge financing for the construction of the Dakota Dunes Casino. The bridge loan was repayable on
demand or upon SIGA entering into a long-term financing arrangement with the Bank.
In 2007, SIGA entered into a long-term financing agreement with the Bank for $79 million to finance all of
its new casino projects. The Bank syndicated this financing with a secondary lender to provide SIGA with
$20 million. The Bank, as the lead lender, is providing SIGA with the remaining $59 million. In 2007, SIGA
used the secondary lender’s $20 million to repay the bridge financing. SIGA will amortize this loan over
the next 15 years with a 5.68% fixed interest rate for the next 6.5 years. This loan is referred to as Term
Loan Tranche D – Fixed Rate.
SIGA is drawing on the remaining approved financing to complete the construction of new casinos.
During construction of the new casinos, SIGA’s interim financing from the Bank is by way of either
a prime rate advance or a bankers’ acceptance. During the construction phase of each project, SIGA
only pays interest monthly on the outstanding balance. Upon completion of construction, outstanding
amounts for each project are converted to long-term loans. The final terms of the long-term loans are
determined upon the completion of construction.
