|LINE OF CREDIT||LINE OF CREDIT
On June 3, 2022, the Operating Company entered into a credit agreement with CIBC, Inc. and Zions Bancorporation, N.A. d/b/a Zions First National Bank as Joint Lead Arrangers (the “Credit Agreement”). The Credit Agreement allows for total revolving commitments of up to $125.0 million, which may be increased up to $225.0 million, contingent on certain criteria being met (the “Credit Facility”). The Credit Facility matures on June 3, 2024, subject to potential extension under certain circumstances.
Borrowings under the Credit Facility bear interest based on a pricing grid with a range of a 2.50% to 3.00% over the Term Secured Overnight Financing Rate (“SOFR”) as determined by the Company’s leverage ratio, or upon achievement of an investment grade rating, interest is then based on a range of 1.75% to 2.25% over Term SOFR. The Credit Facility is also subject to a quarterly unused commitment fee of up to 0.20%, which is based on the daily unused portion of the Credit Facility. Borrowings under the Credit Facility may be repaid at any time during the term of the Credit Agreement, but the Credit Facility requires paydown at least once annually.
On January 31, 2023, the Company entered into an amendment to the Credit Facility, pursuant to which (i) the Company exercised its option to increase the total revolving commitments under the Credit Facility to $225.0 million, (ii) the variable interest rates under the applicable pricing grid were each increased by 15 basis points and (iii) the quarterly unused commitment fee was increased to 0.25%.
Under the terms of the amended Credit Agreement, certain of the Operating Company’s assets serve as pledged collateral. In addition, the Credit Agreement contains covenants that, among other things, limit the Operating Company’s ability to: incur indebtedness; create, incur or allow liens; merge with other companies; pay dividends or make distributions; engage in new or different lines of business; and engage in transactions with affiliates. The Credit Agreement also contains financial covenants requiring the Operating Company to maintain (1) a debt to Earnings Before Interest, Taxes, Depreciation, and Amortization (“EBITDA”) ratio of no more than 3.75x, (2) minimum liquidity of $15 million and (3) minimum quarterly EBITDA of $15 million and minimum EBITDA for the trailing four fiscal quarters of $80 million.
The carrying value of the Credit Facility approximates fair value, as the loan is subject to variable interest rates that adjust with changes in market rates and market conditions and the current interest rate approximates that which would be available under similar financial arrangements.
On July 22, 2020, the Operating Company entered into a secured revolving line of credit to borrow up to $75.0 million (“Line of Credit”). Borrowings under this arrangement accrued interest at LIBOR plus 2.25%. The Line of Credit contained various financial covenants applicable to the Operating Company. The covenants required the Operating Company to maintain (1) a debt to EBITDA ratio of no more than 3.0x, (2) minimum liquidity of $2.5 million, (3) $20.0 million of affiliate deposits in a specific financial institution and (4) minimum quarterly EBITDA of $10.0 million. The Line of Credit was to mature on July 22, 2022, however the Company terminated the Line of Credit in June 2022 in connection with its entry into the Credit Agreement.
As of June 30, 2023, the outstanding balance on the Credit Facility was $80.0 million with a weighted-average interest rate in effect of 7.00%. During the three and six months ended June 30, 2023, the Company incurred interest expense of approximately $2.5 million and $2.9 million, respectively, and unused commitments fees of $45,000 and $0.1 million, respectively. The Company incurred interest expense of approximately $0.1 million and unused commitments fees of $16,000 for both the three and six months ended June 30, 2022.
