Based in Bellerica, Massachusetts, PlumChoice announced today that it has just raised $10 million from Silicon Valley Bank in bank financing. This latest round of funding raises PlumChoice’s total equity to over $14.7 million during the closing of the third quarter of 2009. PlumChoice is a company that provides a turnkey solution for partner technologies and allows for channel partners to remotely repair technology on a 24 hour basis all seven days of the week.
Proceeds from both funding sources will go to help the company expand in the rapidly growing technology market. The new funding will also help PlumChoice to improve its infrastructure and underwrite further development in its technologies.
According to PlumChoices CEO, President, and founder, Ted Werth; the fact that the company was able to raise such an amount in debt capital in such a difficult financial climate is a major achievement. Mr. Werth further added that the fact that PlumChoice was able to raise this debt capital can be attributed to the company’s business model and the technology platform that the company has developed, as well as the grade of customers that uses PlumChioce’s services. Furthermore, Silicon Valley Bank saw the value created in PlumChoice’s offering.
According to Kevin Rhodes, PlumChoice’s CFO; this latest round of funding completes the current fundraising efforts. He further added that PlumChoice is fully capitalized to run its operations during the next year.
