INFORMATION TO BE INCLUDED IN Report

 

SECTION 1 –      REGISTRANT’S BUSINESS AND OPERATIONS

 

Item 1.01     Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement

 

On October 21, 2014, the Company entered into a five year, $150 million senior secured revolving credit and term loan facility (the “Facility”). The Facility is provided by a syndicate of two banks, and was arranged by J.P. Morgan Securities LLC and Capital One, National Association as joint lead arrangers. The new agreement amends and restates the current five-year, $50 million secured revolving credit facility.

 

The Facility provides a revolving credit line of up to $100 million, subject to borrowing base availability, and a term loan of up to $50 million. The Facility expires on October 21, 2019.

 

At the Company’s option, revolving loans under the Facility bear interest, based on the average availability, at an annual rate of either (a) the London Interbank Offered rate (“LIBOR”) plus 1.5% to 1.75%, or (b) the higher of (i) the prime rate, (ii) the federal funds effective rate plus 0.50%, or (iii) LIBOR plus 1.0% plus in each case 0.5% to 0.75%.

 

At the Company’s option, term loans under the Facility bear interest, based on the Company’s rent adjusted leverage ratio, at an annual rate of either (a) the London Interbank Offered rate (“LIBOR”) plus 1.75% to 2.25%,, or (b) the higher of (i) the prime rate, (ii) the federal funds effective rate plus 0.50%, or (iii) LIBOR plus 1.0% plus in each case 0.75% to 1.25%.

 

The Company pays a commitment fee of 0.15% to 0.25% per annum on the unused portion of the Facility, and fees on issued letters of credit at an annual rate of 1.5% to 1.75% based on the average availability. Certain payments are restricted if the availability under the revolving credit line falls below 20% of the total revolving credit line, and subject to pro forma compliance with the fixed charge coverage ratio if applicable.

 

The term loan is available in a single drawing of up to $50 million on a delayed-draw basis through April 21, 2015. In order to draw on the term loan, the Company’s Senior Notes must be paid in full substantially concurrently with the making of the term loan. Quarterly installments of principal are payable on the amount borrowed under the term loan based on a straight line 15 year amortization period, with the balance due at maturity.

 

The Facility is secured by all property owned, leased or operated by the Company in the United States and includes certain real property owned by the Company and contains customary covenants which may limit the Company’s ability to incur debt; engage in mergers and consolidations; make restricted payments (including dividends); sell certain assets; and make investments.

 

The Company must maintain at all times a minimum fixed charge coverage ratio of 1.0 to 1.0 for the first year and 1.1 to 1.0 all times thereafter. If the outstanding term loans are less than $25 million and the fixed charge coverage ratio equals or exceeds 1.25 to 1.0, the fixed charge coverage ratio ceases to apply and thereafter shall only be triggered if average monthly availability is less than 15% of the amount of the revolving credit line. Our fixed charge coverage ratio was 1.5 to 1.0 at September 30, 2014.

 

The Company intends to use the proceeds of the Facility for working capital and general corporate purposes and to refinance our Senior Notes, which are due October 1, 2015.

Effective October 21, 2014, the Company entered into a new credit agreement described under Item 1.01 above, which replaced its existing revolving credit facility dated as of May 29, 2009. No amounts or obligations remain outstanding thereunder.
