Joan Fabrics has successfully completed its refinancing process, according to Elkin McCallum, chairman of the fabric manufacturing company.

Key elements of the agreement consist of: new term loan, significant debt reduction, and an infusion of new liquidity. "It's time to go back to work and focus on building our franchise," he said.
