New York, USA, October 2, 2006 – Finacity Corporation (“Finacity”) announced today the successful closing of a securitization transaction effective September 27, 2006, with Alliance One International, Inc. (NYSE: AOI) as the originator and servicer, and Finacity as the structuring agent, SPE-sponsor and ongoing information reporting agent. The three-year facility covers selected receivables from the sale of agricultural commodities to some two dozen non-OECD domiciled customers. The facility is expected to provide AOI with risk-mitigated monetization of up to US$55 million from time to time through the ongoing securitization of trade receivables generated by Swiss-based AOI AG.

The transaction puts to use a strong AOI asset, and offers the company an opportunity to utilize the capital markets for attractively priced funding while de-leveraging our balance sheet. The structure also offers AOI additional liquidity, enhancing our financial flexibility”.

“We are very proud to have served AOI in a complex cross-border commodity transaction designed to maximize liquidity and minimize cost-of-funds, while removing the ongoing administrative burden to our client AOI” said Adrian Katz, CEO at Finacity.
