10. Long-term Debt
New casino projects financing
In 2007, SIGA entered into a long-term financing agreement with a financial institution (“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.
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 pays interest only, on a monthly basis, based 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.
During the year, the Bank advanced an additional $11,913,357 related to the construction of the Living Sky Casino
and $11,015,559 related to construction of the Painted Hand Casino. These loans are referred to as Construction
Facility Tranche B and Construction Facility Tranche C respectively.
The long-term financing agreement is secured by a general security agreement and mortgage of leasehold interests of
SIGA’s casinos.
The long-term debt obligations are as follows:
Construction Facility Tranche B interest only payable
