Whitehorse's managing director Haseeb Aziz said about the loan.

 

"H.I.G. Whitehorse had thoroughly analyzed our activities and understood our plan to grow and it also understood the market. This creative financing solution will help grow our business in the United States, Asia and Europe," CEO and founder Fokke De Jong added.
