9. Long-Term Debt
Long-term debt is summarized below:
On June 9, 2021, the Company entered into a Credit Agreement (the “Credit Agreement”) with a group of banks and financial institutions. The Credit Agreement provides for a senior secured term loan in the amount of $225,000 and a senior secured revolving credit facility in the amount of $100,000, of which $10,000 will be available in the form of letters of credit and $15,000 will be available for the issuance of short-term swingline loans. The Credit Agreement also allows the Company to request increases to the revolving commitments and/or incremental term loans in an aggregate amount not in excess of $175,000, subject to specified terms and conditions. The final maturity date of the Credit Agreement is June 9, 2026. The Company applied the proceeds of the senior secured term loan facility under the Credit Agreement to refinance its existing senior secured term loan and revolving credit facilities and for the payment of transaction consideration and expenses in connection with the Credit Agreement.
The Company will be required to pay a fee for unused amounts under the senior secured revolving facility in an amount ranging from 0.150% to 0.300% of the average daily unused portion of the senior secured revolving credit facility, depending on the Company’s Leverage Ratio (as defined in the Credit Agreement). The
Credit Agreement provides that the senior secured term loan facility will bear interest at (i) the London Interbank Offered Rate for the applicable interest period multiplied by the Statutory Reserve Rate (as defined in the Credit Agreement) plus (ii) a margin ranging from 1.375% to 2.00%, depending on the Company’s Leverage Ratio. The Credit Agreement provides that the Company has the option to select whether the senior secured revolving credit facility borrowings will bear interest at either (i)(a) the London Interbank Offered Rate for the applicable interest period multiplied by the Statutory Reserve Rate (as defined in the Credit Agreement) plus (b) a margin ranging from 1.375% to 2.00%, depending on the Company’s Leverage Ratio, or (ii) a margin ranging from 0.375% to 1.00% per annum, depending on the Company’s Leverage Ratio, plus the greatest of (which if the following would be less than 1.00%, such rate shall be deemed to be 1.00%) (a) the Prime Rate (as defined in the Credit Agreement) in effect on such day, (b) the NYFRB Rate (as defined in the Credit Agreement) plus 0.50% and (c) the London Interbank Offered Rate for a one month interest period multiplied by the Statutory Reserve Rate plus 1%. If the London Interbank Offered Rate for the applicable interest period is less than zero, such rate shall be deemed to be zero for purposes of calculating the foregoing interest rates in the Credit Agreement.
The Credit Agreement was issued at a $563 discount which is being amortized over the term of the term loan. Additionally, deferred financing costs of $1,409 are being amortized over the term of the loan. The Company’s entrance into the Credit Agreement and subsequent settlement of its prior credit agreements is accounted for as an extinguishment of the Company’s prior debt under ASC 470-50, which resulted in the write off of unamortized capitalized deferred financing costs of $972 as well as the write off of unamortized debt discount of $3,964, resulting in a loss on extinguishment of debt of $4,936 in the Consolidated Statement Operations and Comprehensive Income (Loss) for the year ended December 31, 2021.
At December 31, 2021, the Company had outstanding borrowings under the term loan of $218,875, no outstanding borrowings on the revolving credit facility and remaining borrowing availability of $99,050.
The Credit Agreement includes customary representations, warranties and negative and affirmative covenants, as well as customary events of default and certain cross default provisions that could result in acceleration of the Credit Agreement. In addition, the Credit Agreement requires the Company to have a Leverage Ratio of not more than 3.50 to 1.00 as of the last day of any fiscal quarter commencing with the fiscal quarter ending June 30, 2021, and to have a Consolidated Interest Coverage Ratio (as defined in the Credit Agreement) of not less than 3.00 to 1.00 as of the last day of any fiscal quarter commencing with the fiscal quarter ending June 30, 2021. As of December 31, 2021, the Company is in compliance with the respective covenants.
In accordance with the Company’s prior credit agreements, the Company was required to make additional principal prepayments over the above scheduled payments under certain conditions. This included, in the case of the term loan facility, 100% of the net cash proceeds of certain asset sales, certain insurance or condemnation events, certain debt issuances, and, within 150 days of the end of each fiscal year, 50% of consolidated excess cash flow including a deduction for certain distributions (which percentage is reduced to 0% upon the achievement of certain leverage ratio thresholds), for such fiscal year. Consolidated excess cash flow was defined in the senior credit facilities as consolidated Adjusted EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization) plus a consolidated working capital adjustment, less the sum of repayments of debt and capital expenditures (subject to certain adjustments), interest and taxes paid in cash, management fees and certain restricted payments (including certain dividends or distributions). Consolidated working capital adjustment was defined in the senior credit facilities as the change in working capital, defined as current assets, excluding cash and cash equivalents, less current liabilities, excluding the current portion of long-term debt. The Company made a voluntary payment of $30,000 on its debt on February 13, 2019, a voluntary payment of $20,000 on its debt on January 31, 2020, a voluntary payment of $30,000 on its debt on December 31, 2020, and voluntary payment of $20,000 on its debt on March 31, 2021.
On June 13, 2019, the Company entered into an interest rate swap agreement to reduce its exposure to interest rate volatility. The interest rate swap has a notional amount of $175,000 effective for the period May 31,
2019 through May 31, 2024. The Company may have counterparty credit risk resulting from the interest rate swap, which it monitors on an on-going basis. The risk lies with one global financial institution. Under the interest rate swap agreement, the Company will either receive or make payments on a monthly basis based on the differential between 2.495% and LIBOR (with a LIBOR floor of 1.0%). The interest rate swap was previously accounted for as a cash flow hedge. During the first quarter of 2020, the swap was determined to be ineffective. As a result, the swap was dedesignated on March 19, 2020, and the remaining losses included in Accumulated other comprehensive loss on the Consolidated Balance Sheets would be amortized into interest expense on a straight line basis through the life of the swap. The amount amortized from Accumulated other comprehensive loss into earnings during the years ended December 31, 2021 and 2020 was $568 and $2,243, respectively. A mark-to-market adjustment of ($1,760) and $611 was recorded as Interest expense in the Consolidated Statements of Income for the years ended December 31, 2021 and 2020, respectively, related to the swap.
On June 9, 2021, in conjunction with entering into the Credit Agreement described above, the Company re-designated its swap. As a result, the swap will be recorded at fair value with changes recorded in Accumulated other comprehensive loss. The amortization from Accumulated other comprehensive income into earnings from the previous dedesignation has been adjusted as of June 9, 2021 to include the de-recognition of previously recognized mark-to-market gains and the amortization of the off-market component as of the re-designation date, and will continue to be recognized through the life of the swap. The amount expected to be amortized from Accumulated other comprehensive loss into earnings in the next twelve months is $687.
The interest rate swap’s negative fair value at December 31, 2021 was $6,428, of which $3,479 and $2,949 are included in Accrued expenses and other current liabilities and Other long-term liabilities on the Consolidated Balance Sheet, respectively. The interest rate swap’s negative fair value at December 31, 2020 was $13,073, of which $4,075 and $8,998 are included in Accrued expenses and other current liabilities and Other long-term liabilities on the Consolidated Balance Sheets, respectively.
The Company receives on consignment, truck chassis on which it performs upfitting service installations under “bailment pool” arrangements with major truck manufacturers. The Company never receives title to the truck chassis. The aggregate value of all bailment pool chassis on hand as of December 31, 2021 and 2020 was $8,439 and $21,725, respectively. The Company is responsible to the manufacturer for interest on chassis held for upfitting. Interest rates vary depending on the number of days in the bailment pool. As of December 31, 20210, rates were based on prime (3.25% at December 31, 2021) plus a margin ranging from 0% to 8%. During 2021, the Company incurred $72 in interest on the bailment pool arrangement. During 2020, the Company incurred $269 in interest on the bailment pool arrangement.
The Company has a floor plan line of credit for up to $10,000 with a financial institution. The current terms of the line of credit are contained in a credit agreement dated July 15, 2016 and expired on July 31, 2017, which the Company renewed through December 31, 2021. Under the floor plan agreement the Company receives truck chassis and title on upfitting service installations. Upon upfit completion, the title transfers from the Company to the dealer customer. The note bears interest at an adjusted LIBOR rate, plus an applicable rate of 1.75%. The obligation under the floor plan agreement as of December 31, 2021 and 2020 is $2,655 and $8,146, respectively. During 2021, the Company incurred $108 in interest on the floor plan arrangements. During 2020, the Company incurred $224 in interest on the floor plan arrangements.
