Senior Notes

On September 27, 2005, we completed a private offering of $200.0 million of ten-year senior unsecured notes due 2015 (the "Senior Notes"). The Senior Notes were offered by Global and have an annual coupon rate of 5.375% with interest payable semi-annually in arrears on April 1 and October 1 of each year. Proceeds received in connection with the issuance of the Senior Notes, net of a related discount of $1.6 million, totaled $198.4 million. We used the net proceeds from the offering to expand our retail network, invest in our manufacturing and logistics operations, and for other general corporate purposes. As of June 30, 2013, outstanding borrowings related to this transaction have been included in the Consolidated Balance Sheets within long-term debt. The discount on the Senior Notes is being amortized to interest expense over the life of the related debt as is debt issuance costs of $2.0 million primarily for banking, legal, accounting, rating agency, and printing services and $0.8 million of losses on settled forward contracts entered in conjunction with this debt issuance. During fiscal 2013, the Company repurchased $24.0 million of the Senior Notes in a single unsolicited transaction. During fiscal 2012, the Company repurchased $12.0 million of the Senior Notes in several unsolicited transactions.

The Senior Notes may be redeemed in whole or in part, at Global’s option at any time at the greater of (i) 100% of the principal amount of the notes to be redeemed and (ii) the sum of the present values of the remaining scheduled payments of principal and interest on the Senior Notes to be redeemed, discounted to the date of redemption on a semi-annual basis at the applicable treasury rate plus 20 basis points, plus, in each case, accrued and unpaid interest to the redemption date. In the event of default, the trustee or the holders of 25% of the outstanding principal amount of the Senior Notes may accelerate payment of principal, premium, if any, and accrued and unpaid interest. Events of default include failure to pay in accordance with the terms of the indenture, including failure, under certain circumstances, to pay indebtedness other than the Senior Notes. As of June 30, 2013, we are in compliance with the terms and conditions and all covenants of the Senior Notes.

Revolving Credit Facility

The Company has a senior secured, asset-based, revolving credit facility (the “Facility”) which provides revolving credit financing of up to $50 million, subject to borrowing base availability, and includes a right for the Company to increase the total facility to $100 million either with existing or additional lenders subject to certain conditions. The Facility expires March 25, 2016, or June 26, 2015 if the Company’s Senior Notes have not been refinanced. At the Company’s option, revolving loans under the Facility bear interest at an annual rate of either:



London Interbank Offered rate (“LIBOR”) plus 2.0% to 2.5%, based on the average availability, or



The higher of (i) a prime rate, (ii) the federal funds effective rate plus 0.50%, or (iii) LIBOR plus 1.0% plus, in each case, an additional 1.0% to 1.5%, based on average availability.

The Company pays a commitment fee of 0.25% per annum on the unused portion of the Facility and participation fees on issued letters of credit at an annual rate of 1.0% to 2.5%, based on the average availability and the letter of credit type. If the average monthly availability is less than the greater of (i) 12.5% of the aggregate commitment and (ii) $6.3 million, the Company’s fixed charge coverage ratio may not be less than 1 to 1 for any period of four consecutive fiscal quarters. Certain payments are restricted if the availability of the collateral supporting the facility falls below $10 million or 20% of the facility size.

The Facility is secured by all property owned, leased or operated by the Company in the United States excluding any real property owned by the Company and contains customary covenants which may limit the Company’s ability to incur debt; engage in mergers and consolidations; make restricted payments (including dividends); sell certain assets; and make investments. At June 30, 2013, we had no revolving loans and $0.6 million of standby and trade letters of credit outstanding under the Facility. Remaining availability under the facility totaled $49.4 million subject to limitations set forth in the agreement and as a result, the coverage charge ratio, and other restricted payment limitations did not apply. As of June 30, 2013, we are in compliance with all the covenants of the Facility.

For fiscal years ended June 30, 2013, 2012 and 2011, the weighted-average interest rates applicable under our outstanding debt obligations for each year was approximately 5.5%. Aggregate scheduled maturities of our debt obligations for each of the five fiscal years subsequent to June 30, 2013, and thereafter are as follows (in thousands):
