Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement
On December 15, 2005, we issued a press release announcing our intention to commence a self-tender for up to 10% of our outstanding shares of stock up to 1,063,937 shares of common stock and up to 1,325,468 shares of Class A common stock (the Offer). The announcement was accompanied by our filing with the SEC of a precommencement Schedule TO.
On December 14, 2005, we entered into a fourth amendment (the Fourth Amendment) to our credit agreement with Wilmington Trust Company dated January 15, 2002, as amended (the Credit Agreement). The purpose of the Fourth Amendment was to allow us to repurchase shares in the Offer and incur debt to provide part of the funding for the Offer. The Offer is not subject to any financing contingency.
Assuming that all 1,063,937 shares of common stock and all 1,325,468 shares of Class A common stock shares are tendered in the Offer at the offer price of $14.50 per share, the aggregate purchase price will be approximately $34.6 million. We expect that expenses for the Offer will be approximately $350,000.
The Fourth Amendment extends the term of our Credit Agreement until January 1, 2008 and increases our unsecured revolving line of credit under the Credit Agreement from $57.5 million to $77.5 million.
We anticipate that we will obtain the funds necessary to purchase shares tendered in the Offer, and to pay related expenses, primarily through available cash on hand and from borrowings pursuant to this Credit Agreement. Under the Credit Agreement, interest is based, at our option, upon (i) LIBOR plus 0.75% or (ii) the base rate (the greater of the prime rate or the federal funds rate plus 0.5%) minus 1%. The terms of the credit facility contain, among others, minimum net worth, interest coverage and maximum leverage covenant requirements. Material adverse changes in our results of operation could impact our ability to maintain financial ratios necessary to satisfy these requirements. The facility is for seasonal funding needs, capital improvements and other general corporate purposes. It is an unsecured facility.
At December 14, 2005, we were in compliance with all terms of the facility and there was $35,450,000 outstanding at a weighted average interest rate of 4.93%. At December 14, 2005, $42,050,000 was available pursuant to the facility.
We intend to repay any amounts borrowed under our unsecured line of credit for the purchase of shares tendered in the Offer from net cash provided by operations.
The Fourth Amendment is filed as an exhibit to this Form 8-K.
This disclosure is for informational purposes only and is not an offer to buy or the solicitation of an offer to sell any shares of the Companys common stock or Class A common stock. The solicitation of offers to buy Dover Downs Gaming & Entertainment common stock and Class A common stock will only be made pursuant to the Offer to Purchase and related materials that the Company will send to its stockholders. Stockholders should read those materials carefully because they will contain important information, including the various terms and conditions of the offer. Stockholders will be able to obtain copies of the Offer to Purchase, related materials filed by the Company as part of the statement on Schedule TO and other documents filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission through the Commissions internet address at http://www.sec.gov without charge. Stockholders will also be able to obtain copies of the Offer to Purchase and related materials, as filed with the Commission (excluding exhibits), without charge from the Company or by written or oral request directed to the Information Agent, Mellon Investor Services LLC, 480 Washington Boulevard, Jersey City, New Jersey 07310, telephone number 1-888-689-2681.
