 Distribution Facility Expansion
During fiscal 2014, we began a significant operational expansion initiative with respect to overall warehousing capacity and new equipment and system upgrades at our Bowling Green, Kentucky distribution facility. The expansion project includes the construction of a new building which, when completed, will expand our current 262,000 square foot facility to an approximately 600,000 square foot facility. The physical building expansion project is expected to be completed in the first half of fiscal 2015. The updated facilities will also include a new Intelligrated high-speed parcel shipping and item sortation system coupled with a new Manhattan Associates warehouse system to support our increased level of shipments and units and a new call center facility to better serve our customers. The new sortation and warehouse management system is expected to be phased into production during the summer and fall of fiscal 2015. Total cost of the expansion is estimated to be approximately $25 million and is being financed with our expanded PNC revolving line of credit and a $15 million PNC term loan. Construction started in the second quarter of fiscal 2014. As of January 31, 2015, we have expended approximately $15 million in cash relating to the Bowling Green expansion initiative with additional cash commitments of approximately $10 million expected during the first half of fiscal 2015 funded from our PNC Credit Facility.
