INDIANAPOLIS, Feb. 5 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Indianapolis based Noble Roman's, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: NROM) today announced that it entered into an amended loan agreement with Wells Fargo Bank. This amendment provides the company with an additional $3 million. This amendment allows the company to repurchase shares of its common stock in such amounts and on such terms as are approved by the company's board of directors from time to time, provided the aggregate purchase price of such repurchased shares shall not exceed $3 million. Proceeds of the additional loan may also be used for general corporate purposes. The board of directors has not approved any repurchase plan at this time. If the board of directors approves an open market repurchase program in the future, the company will publicly announce it at that time. In August 2005, as part of a financial transaction that resulted in a one- time gain, the company borrowed $9 million which borrowing had since been reduced through normal payments to a principal amount of approximately $5.375 million. This new loan amendment increases the company's total debt to approximately $8.375 million, keeps the same monthly payment amortization and reduces the interest rate by 1/4 percent per annum. Noble Roman's, Inc. is the franchisor of Noble Roman's Pizza and Tuscano's Subs for both non-traditional and traditional locations in 45 states plus a limited number of international locations primarily in military bases.
