KLH completes financing
ENGLEWOOD, Colo.--Aug. 14, 1995--KLH
Engineering Group Inc. announced that it finalized its financing
package on Aug. 11, 1995.
The terms of the agreement reached with Industrial State Bank
and First State Bank of Kansas City include the extension of a $1.5
million credit facility to KLH for a term of three years. This
facility will allow KLH to pay off First State Bank of Kansas City,
and remove First State Bank's objection to emergence from bankruptcy
of Tomahawk Construction Co., a wholly owned subsidiary of KLH.
In addition, Delmar A. Janovec, president and chairman of the
board of KLH, purchased Tomahawk's outstanding loan of approximately
$3.2 million from Industrial State Bank. Janovec will exchange the
note for an additional equity position in KLH prior to the end of
the 1995 fiscal year. This will reduce the outstanding obligations
of KLH and provide a substantial equity capital infusion to bring
total stockholder equity in KLH to approximately $4 million, an
increase of approximately 300%.
The completion of this financing package will allow Tomahawk to
emerge from bankruptcy on Aug. 28, 1995. Janovec stated: "We are
excited to finally complete this restructuring. We will now be able
to devote our time to becoming more productive and improving our

months ended June 30, 1995 was $65.2 million, compared to $73.6
million for the same six month period a year ago.
SpectraVision sought protection under Chapter 11 of the U.S.

restructuring. The company obtained $40 million in debtor-in-
possession financing on June 9, 1995. After retiring the existing

other non-cash items (EBITDA) was $3.3 million for the second
quarter of 1995, compared to $9.0 million in the second quarter of
1994. EBITDA for the six months ended June 30, 1995 was $7.1

our capital structure that have prevented the company from meeting
its full potential," said Gary Weik, chief executive officer of

short-term financing, allowing us to fulfill commitments to existing
customers and continue to make operational improvements that will
yield long-term benefits -- such as the reorganization of our
customer service function and the rollout of new technology."
Weik added, "We have stabilized EBITDA over the last three
quarters, and we are currently developing a plan of reorganization
that will significantly reduce our debt burden. Our restructuring
is proceeding as planned and we look forward to restoring the
company to financial strength."
