Credit Agreement
On February 9, 2012, the Company entered into a credit and security agreement (the "Credit Facility") with PNC Bank, N.A. ("PNC"), a member of The PNC Financial Services Group, Inc., as lender and agent. On January 31, 2014, the Company entered into a third amendment to its revolving credit and security agreement with PNC, as previously amended that, among other things, increased the size of the revolving line of credit from $50 million to $60 million and provides for a $15 million term loan on which the Company may draw to fund potential improvements at the Company's distribution facility in Bowling Green, Kentucky.
The revolving line of credit under the Credit Facility, as amended, bears interest at LIBOR plus 3% per annum. All borrowings under the amended Credit Facility mature and are payable on May 1, 2018. Subject to certain conditions, the Credit Facility also provides for the issuance of letters of credit in an aggregate amount up to $6 million which, upon issuance, would be deemed advances under the Credit Facility. Remaining capacity under the Credit Facility, currently $18.5 million, provides liquidity for working capital and general corporate purposes.
Maximum borrowings and available capacity under the amended revolving Credit Facility are equal to the lesser of $60 million or a calculated borrowing base comprised of eligible accounts receivable and eligible inventory. The Credit Facility is secured by substantially all of the Company’s personal property, as well as the Company’s real properties located in Eden Prairie, Minnesota and Bowling Green, Kentucky. Under certain circumstances, the borrowing base may be adjusted if there were to be a significant deterioration in value of the Company’s accounts receivable and inventory. The Credit Facility is subject to mandatory prepayment in certain circumstances. In addition, if the total Credit Facility is terminated prior to maturity, the Company would be required to pay an early termination fee of 3% of the total Credit Facility if terminated in year one; 1.0% if terminated in year two; 0.5% if terminated in year three; and no fee if terminated in years four or five. Interest expense recorded under the Credit Facility's revolving line of credit was $1,435,000 and $1,503,000 for fiscal 2013 and fiscal 2012, respectively.
If drawn, the term loan shall bear interest at either (i) a fixed rate based on the LIBOR Rate for interest periods of one, two, three or six months, or (ii) a daily floating alternate base rate (the “Base Rate”), plus a margin of 5% on the Base Rate and 6% on the LIBOR Rate until January 31, 2015, at which time the margin shall adjust each fiscal year to a rate consisting of between 4% and 5% on Base Rate term loans and 5% to 6% on LIBOR Rate term loans based on the Company’s leverage ratio as demonstrated in its audited financial statements. Principal borrowings under the term loan are to be payable in monthly installments over an 84 month amortization period commencing six months after the initial term loan advance and are also subject to mandatory prepayment in certain circumstances, including, but not limited to, if the outstanding borrowings are more than the borrowing base and upon receipt of certain proceeds from dispositions of collateral. The third amendment also provides that borrowings under the term loan, if made, are subject to mandatory prepayment starting in the fiscal year ending January 31, 2016 in an amount equal to fifty percent (50%) of excess cash flow for such fiscal year, with any such payment not to exceed $3,750,000 in any such fiscal year. As of February 1, 2014, there were no borrowings under the Credit Facility term loan.
The amended Credit Facility contains customary covenants and conditions, including, among other things, maintaining a minimum of unrestricted cash plus facility availability of $10 million at all times and limiting annual capital expenditures. Certain financial covenants, including minimum EBITDA levels (as defined in the Credit Facility) and minimum fixed charge coverage ratio, become applicable only if unrestricted cash plus facility availability falls below $16 million or upon an event of default. In addition, the Credit Facility places restrictions on the Company’s ability to incur additional indebtedness or prepay existing indebtedness, to create liens or other encumbrances, to sell or otherwise dispose of assets, to merge or consolidate with other entities, and to make certain restricted payments, including payments of dividends to common shareholders.
Costs incurred to obtain amendments to the Credit Facility of approximately $410,000 and unamortized costs incurred to obtain the original Credit Facility totaling $466,000 have been deferred and are being expensed as additional interest over the five-year term of the Credit Facility. In connection with a previous term loan refinancing, the Company was required to pay an early termination fee of $500,000, which was recorded as a loss on debt extinguishment in the accompanying statement of operations for the year ending February 2, 2013. Additionally, the Company recorded an additional non-cash interest charge totaling $2.3 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2012 relating to the write-off of unamortized term loan financing costs.
