Item 1.01 Amendment of a Material Contract
On March 28, 2005, First Advantage Corporation (the Company) amended for a second time its loan agreement with Bank of America, N.A. Under the terms of the original loan agreement, executed by the Company in July 2003, the outstanding principal balance under the related note to the loan agreement could not exceed the lesser of $15 million or 80% of eligible accounts receivable. The first amendment of the loan agreement increased the note to the lesser of $20 million or 80% of eligible accounts receivable and the interest rate of the note changed to the 30-day LIBOR rate plus an applicable margin ranging from 1.25% to 1.49% per annum.
Under the terms of the second amendment, the outstanding principal under the amended note increased to the lesser of $45 million or 80% of eligible accounts receivable. The interest rate remained unchanged from the prior amendment. The maturity date is July 31, 2006.
As part of the second amendment to the loan agreement, the Company is required to adhere to certain financial covenants. Through the maturity date, the Funded Debt to EBITDA ratio cannot exceed 3.0 to 1. Funded Debt is defined as all outstanding liabilities for borrowed money and other interest bearing liabilities less the non-current portion of subordinated liabilities. EBITDA, as defined in the second amendment to the loan agreement, means net income less income or plus losses from discontinued operations and extraordinary items, plus all of the following: income taxes, interest expense, depreciation, amortization, depletion and other non-cash charges.
Additional terms under the second amendment to the loan agreement include the Companys obligation to apply 100% of the proceeds it may receive from an investment in the stock of the Company, either through a public offering or a private placement of equity, towards repayment of the amended note, until such time as the maximum outstanding principal balance of the amended note does not exceed $20 million.
