Credit Facility Opened September 2014
On September 30, 2014, we entered into a new agreement for a secured revolving credit facility to refinance our outstanding revolving loans. The new credit facility provides an aggregate principal amount of up to $200.0 million, with sublimits of $10.0 million for the issuance of letters of credit and for $20.0 million of swingline loans. The credit facility also allows us, subject to certain conditions, to request additional term loans or revolving commitments in an aggregate principal amount of up to $150.0 million, plus an amount that would not cause our consolidated net leverage ratio, which is a ratio of the Company’s consolidated funded indebtedness to its consolidated EBIDTA, to exceed 3.25 to 1.00. Advances under the credit facility may be voluntarily prepaid and re-borrowed. At our option, the revolving loans accrue interest at a per annum rate equal to either LIBOR, plus a margin ranging from 1.25% to 1.75%, or the Base Rate, plus a margin ranging from 0.25% to 0.75%. The Base Rate is defined as the greater of Wells Fargo's prime rate, the Federal Funds Rate plus 0.50% or one month LIBOR plus 1.00%. In each case, the applicable margin is determined based upon our consolidated net leverage ratio. The interest is due and payable quarterly, in arrears, for loans bearing interest at the Base Rate and at the end of the applicable interest period in the case of loans bearing interest at the adjusted LIBOR rate. The credit facility is secured by substantially all of the Company’s assets and certain of our existing and future material domestic subsidiaries are required to guaranty our obligations under the credit facility. All outstanding principal and accrued and unpaid interest is due upon the credit facility's maturity, September 30, 2019.
Our credit facility contains customary covenants, subject in each case to customary exceptions and qualifications, which limit our and certain of our subsidiaries’ ability to, among other things, incur additional indebtedness or guarantee indebtedness of others; create liens on our assets; enter into mergers or consolidations; dispose of assets; prepay certain indebtedness or make changes to our governing documents and certain of our agreements; pay dividends and make other distributions on our capital stock, and redeem and repurchase our capital stock; make investments, including acquisitions; and enter into transactions with affiliates. Our credit facility additionally contains customary affirmative covenants. We are also required to comply with a maximum consolidated net leverage ratio and a minimum interest coverage ratio. The interest coverage ratio, which is a ratio of our four previous fiscal consecutive quarters' consolidated EBITDA to our interest expense, is to be not less than 3.00 to 1.00 as of the last day of any fiscal quarter. The consolidated net leverage ratio, which is the ratio of funded indebtedness on the last day of each fiscal quarter to the four previous consecutive fiscal quarters' consolidated EBITDA, is not to be greater than 3.50 to 1.00, provided that we can elect to increase the ratio to 3.75 to 1.00 for a specified period following a permitted acquisition. As of December 31, 2014, we were in compliance with the covenants under our credit facility.
The credit facility contains customary events of default, subject to customary cure periods for certain defaults, that include, among others, non-payment defaults, covenant defaults, material judgment defaults, bankruptcy and insolvency defaults, cross-defaults to certain other material indebtedness, ERISA defaults, inaccuracy of representations and warranties, and a change in control default.
In the event of a default on our credit facility, the obligations under the credit facility could be accelerated, the applicable interest rate under the credit facility could be increased, the loan commitments could be terminated, our subsidiaries that have guaranteed the credit facility could be required to pay the obligations in full, and our lenders would be permitted to exercise remedies with respect to all of the collateral that is securing the credit facility, including substantially all of our and our subsidiary guarantors’ assets. Any such default that is not cured or waived could have a material adverse effect on our liquidity and financial condition.
As of December 31, 2014 and 2013, we had $20.0 million and $0.0 million, respectively, outstanding under our revolving line of credit. As of December 31, 2014, $180.0 million was available under our revolving line of credit of which $10.0 million was available for the issuance of letters of credit. We had unamortized debt issuance costs of $1.3 million and $0.3 million at December 31, 2014 and 2013, respectively.
Previous Credit Facility
Our previous secured revolving credit facility had an aggregate principal amount of up to $150.0 million, subject to a borrowing formula, with a sub-limit of $10.0 million for the issuance of letters of credit on our behalf. At our option, the borrowings accrued interest at a per annum rate equal to either LIBOR or Wells Fargo’s prime rate (or, if greater, the Federal Funds Rate plus 0.50% or three month LIBOR plus 1.00%), in each case plus a margin ranging from 2.00% to 2.50%, in the case of LIBOR loans, and 0.00% to 0.25% in the case of prime rate loans, in each case based upon our senior leverage ratio. The interest was due and payable monthly, in arrears, for loans bearing interest at the prime rate and at the end of the applicable 1-, 2-, or 3-month interest period in the case of loans bearing interest at the adjusted LIBOR rate.
In May 2014, we entered into an amendment to the previous credit facility. Under the terms of the amendment, the restrictive covenants were amended to permit us to repurchase up to $75.0 million of our common stock, subject to certain conditions. Additionally, the fixed charge coverage ratio was replaced with a new minimum interest expense coverage ratio and the capital expenditures limitations were increased.
In June 2014, we entered into an amendment to the previous credit facility. Under the terms of the amendment, the parties to the credit facility consented to the acquisition of Kigo and agreed that the acquisition of Kigo would be a "Permitted Acquisition," as defined in the credit facility and would be excluded from the calculation of the Permitted Acquisition limit. Additionally, the amendment increased the value of our equipment that could be in the hands of our employees, consultants, or customers in the ordinary course of business to $2.5 million and amended the definition of "Aggregate Permitted Acquisition Limit" to $150.0 million, plus an additional $100.0 million if certain conditions are met. In June 2014, we borrowed a total of $25.0 million from our revolving line of credit in order to partially finance our acquisition of Kigo.
