|LONG-TERM DEBT||LONG-TERM DEBT
The Company’s long-term debt consisted of the following (in thousands):
(1) The unamortized debt issuance costs related to the Senior Secured Term Loan and the Term Loan are presented as a reduction of the carrying amount of the corresponding debt balance on the accompanying condensed consolidated balance sheets. Unamortized debt issuance costs related to the PNC Credit Facility are presented within other assets on the accompanying condensed consolidated balance sheets.
On December 27, 2018, the Company entered into a senior secured term loan to borrow an aggregate of $165.0 million (the “Senior Secured Term Loan”). In connection with the Senior Secured Term Loan, the Company amended its existing revolving credit facility with PNC (the PNC Credit Facility together with the Senior Secured Term Loan, the “December 2018 Credit Agreements”) providing for borrowings up to a maximum principal amount of the lesser of: (a) $45.0 million or (b) the amount of the borrowing base, as defined in the PNC Credit Facility agreement.
On June 16, 2020, the Company entered into amendments to the December 2018 Credit Agreements (the "June 2020 Amendment" and collectively with the amendments to the December 2018 Credit Agreements occurring on March 30, 2020, March 31, 2020 and April 3, 2020, the “2020 Amendments”). The June 2020 Amendment provided an additional borrowing of $20.0 million which was immediately drawn in full.
In connection with the June 2020 Amendment, the Company issued to the lenders warrants (the “2020 Term Loan Warrants”) to purchase 3,400,000 shares of the Company’s common stock, at an exercise price of $3.00 per share. The exercise price and the number of shares underlying the 2020 Term Loan Warrants are subject to adjustment in the event of specified events, including dilutive issuances of common stock linked equity instruments at a price lower than the exercise price of the warrants, a subdivision or combination of the Company’s common stock, a reclassification of the Company’s common stock or specified dividend payments. The 2020 Term Loan Warrants are exercisable until June 16, 2030. Upon exercise, the aggregate exercise price may be paid, at each warrant holder’s election, in cash or on a net issuance basis, based upon the fair market value of the Company’s common stock at the time of exercise.
The 2020 Amendments related to the Senior Secured Term Loan were accounted for as modifications. In connection with the modifications, the Company incurred $11.9 million in costs including $11.3 million related to the value of the 2020 Term Loan Warrants and $0.6 million in fees paid to the lenders. These debt issuance costs are reflected as a reduction to the carrying amount of the Senior Secured Term Loan and are amortized to interest expense over the remaining loan term. The 2020 Amendments related to the PNC Credit Facility were accounted for as modifications. Fees paid to PNC of approximately $0.5 million were recorded to other assets and are amortized to interest expense over the remaining term of the agreement.
On August 5, 2021 (the “Closing Date”), the Company entered into a senior secured term loan to borrow an aggregate of $100.0 million, (the “Term Loan”). A portion of the proceeds were used to repay in full all outstanding borrowings under the Senior Secured Term Loan. Borrowings under the Term Loan mature on August 5, 2026. Principal is payable at a rate per annum equal to (a) 2.5% of the original principal balance thereof during the first year following the Closing Date and (b) 5% of the original principal balance thereof thereafter. Principal and interest payments are payable on a quarterly basis. The Company incurred $5.1 million in costs related to the Term Loan. These debt issuance costs are reflected as a reduction of the carrying amount of the Term Loan and are being recognized as interest expense over the term of the Term Loan.
The Company recorded a loss on debt extinguishment of $15.0 million related to the repayment of the Senior Secured Term Loan which was comprised of $6.4 million in prepayment penalties, $0.1 million in legal fees, and the write-off of unamortized debt issuance costs of $8.4 million.
Loans under the Term Loan designated as “Prime Rate Loans” will bear interest at a rate per annum equal to the greatest of (i) 1.75%, (ii) the Federal funds rate plus 0.50%, (iii) the LIBOR Rate based upon an interest period of one month plus 1.0%, and (iv) the “Prime Rate” last quoted by the Wall Street Journal, plus an applicable margin of 5.00%. Loans designated as “LIBOR Rate Loans” will bear interest at a rate per annum equal to the LIBOR Rate plus an applicable margin of 6.00%. The “LIBOR Rate” is subject to a floor of 0.75%. The Company can designate a loan as a Prime Rate Loan or LIBOR Rate Loan in its discretion.
The Term Loan contains certain covenants, including requirements to prepay the Term Loan in an amount equal to (i) 100% of the net cash proceeds from certain asset dispositions, extraordinary receipts, debt issuances and equity issuances, subject to certain reinvestment rights and other exceptions and (ii) 75% of certain excess cash flow of the Company and its subsidiaries beginning in the fiscal year ended March 31, 2023, subject to certain exceptions, including reductions to the percentage of such excess cash flow that is required to prepay the loans to 50% and 0%, based on the Company’s applicable total net leverage ratio. Amounts outstanding under the Term Loan may become due and payable upon the occurrence of specified events, which among other things include (subject to certain exceptions and cure periods): (i) failure to pay principal, interest, or any fees when due; (ii) breach of any representation or warranty, covenant, or other agreement in the Term Loan and other related loan documents; (iii) the occurrence of a bankruptcy or insolvency proceeding with respect to the Company or certain of its subsidiaries; (iv) any “Event of Default” with respect to other indebtedness involving an aggregate amount of $3,000,000 or more; (v) any lien created by the Term Loan or any related security documents ceasing to be valid and perfected; (vi) the Term Loan Credit Agreement or any related security documents or guarantees ceasing to be legal, valid, and binding upon the parties thereto; or (vii) a change of control shall occur. Additionally, the Term Loan contains financial covenants relating to minimum liquidity and total net leverage.
On September 30, 2021, the Company amended the PNC Credit Facility (the PNC Credit Facility together with the Term Loan, the “Credit Agreements”). The amendment, among other things (a) extended the maturity date to August 5, 2026; (b) reduced the principal amount of the revolving commitments to a maximum amount equal to the lesser of: (i) $30.0 million or (ii) the amount of the borrowing base, as defined in the PNC Credit Facility agreement;(c) replaced existing debt covenants with net leverage ratio, minimum liquidity and fixed charges coverage ratio covenants; and, (d) removed the requirement to maintain a $5.0 million restricted cash reserve with PNC.
The interest rate under the PNC Credit Facility is 2.25% per annum for LIBOR Rate Loans and 1.25% per annum for Domestic Rate Loans and Swing Loans through December 31, 2021, and effective as of January 1, 2022 on the first day of each fiscal quarter ending thereafter (the “Applicable Margin Adjustment Date”), between 1.75% and 2.25% per annum for LIBOR Rate Loans and between 0.75% and 1.25% per annum for Domestic Rate Loans and Swing Loans, based on the percentage of Average Undrawn Availability (as defined in the PNC Credit Agreement) for the most recently completed fiscal quarter prior to the Applicable Margin Adjustment Date (the “Applicable Interest Rate”).
With respect to any LIBOR Rate Loan, the Company has agreed to pay affiliates of certain Term Loan lenders a fee equal to a percentage per annum equal to the sum of (x) 6.00%, minus (y) the Applicable Interest Rate, plus (z) if the LIBOR Rate applicable to such interest payment is less than 0.75%, (i) 0.75% minus (ii) such LIBOR Rate. With respect to any Domestic Rate Loan or Swing Loan, the Company has agreed to pay an affiliate of Blue Torch a fee equal to a percentage per annum equal to the sum of (x) 5.00%, minus (y) the Applicable Interest Rate, plus (z) if the Alternative Base Rate applicable to such interest payment is less than 1.00%, (i) 1.00% minus (ii) such Alternative Base Rate. If on the last day of any calendar quarter, the average “Usage Amount” during such calendar quarter does not equal the “Maximum Revolving Advance Amount” (as such terms are defined in the PNC Credit
Facility), then the Company has agreed to pay affiliates of certain Term Loan lenders a fee at a rate per annum equal to 1.00% minus a fee percentage between 0.25% to 0.375% on the amount by which the Maximum Revolving Advance Amount exceeds such average Usage Amount.
As of September 30, 2021, the interest rates on the Term Loan and the PNC Credit Facility were 6.75% and 2.34%, respectively, and PNC Credit Facility had a borrowing base of $20.0 million, of which $8.6 million was available at that date. As of March 31, 2021, the Company was required to maintain a $5.0 million restricted cash reserve as part of the PNC Credit Facility, which was presented as long-term restricted cash within the accompanying condensed consolidated balance sheet as of March 31, 2021. The September 30, 2021 amendment to the PNC Credit Facility removed the restricted cash reserve requirement.
Registration Rights Agreement
In connection with the June 2020 Amendment to the Senior Secured Term Loan, the Company entered into an amended and restated registration rights agreement (the “Amended Registration Rights Agreement”) with the holders of the warrants previously issued to the Senior Secured Term Loan lenders in December 2018 and the 2020 Term Loan Warrants (collectively, the “Term Loan Warrants”). The Amended Registration Rights Agreement grants the holders of the Term Loan Warrants certain registration rights for the shares of common stock issuable upon the exercise of the applicable Term Loan Warrants, including (a) the ability of a holder to request that the Company file a Form S-1 registration statement with respect to at least 40% of the registrable securities held by such holder as of the issuance date of the applicable Term Loan Warrants; (b) the ability of a holder to request that the Company file a Form S-3 registration statement with respect to outstanding registrable securities if at any time the Company is eligible to use a Form S-3 registration statement; and (c) certain piggyback registration rights related to potential future equity offerings of the Company, subject to certain limitations.
