“With the significant pay down of our debt in early 2017, it marked the culmination of a more than five-year process of restructuring our business,” stated Warren H. Haruki, Chairman and CEO. “The starting point had MLP with over $135 million of bank loans, with almost all of our assets pledged as collateral, and loan covenants which severely restricted our ability to finance our development efforts and operations. As part of this process, we selectively sold non-core assets, retired 99% of our bank debt, and were able to secure long-term financing capabilities. These moves provide the foundation and liquidity we need to achieve sustained growth for MLP in the future.”
