Total debt obligations at December 31, 2015 and June 30, 2015 consist of the following (in thousands):
In September 2005, we issued $200 million in ten-year senior unsecured notes due October 1, 2015 (the "Senior Notes"). The Company entered into a five year, $150 million senior secured revolving credit and term loan facility on October 21, 2014, as amended January 28, 2015 (the “Facility”). The Facility amended and restated the previous five-year, $50 million secured revolving credit facility in its entirety. The Facility, which expires on October 21, 2019, provides a term loan of up to $35 million and a revolving credit line of up to $115 million, subject to borrowing base availability. During March 2015, we utilized $35 million of the term loan and $40 million of the revolving credit line, along with our available cash to fully redeem our Senior Notes. We incurred financing costs of $1.5 million under the Facility, which are being amortized by the straight-line method, which approximates the interest method, over the remaining life of the Facility.
At the Company’s option, revolving loans under the Facility bear interest, based on the average availability, at an annual rate of either (a) the London Interbank Offered rate (“LIBOR”) plus 1.5% to 1.75%, or (b) the higher of (i) the prime rate, (ii) the federal funds effective rate plus 0.50%, or (iii) LIBOR plus 1.0% plus in each case 0.5% to 0.75%. At December 31, 2015 the annual interest rate in effect on the revolving loan was 1.9375%.
At the Company’s option, term loans under the Facility bear interest, based on the Company’s rent adjusted leverage ratio, at an annual rate of either (a) LIBOR plus 1.75% to 2.25%, or (b) the higher of (i) the prime rate, (ii) the federal funds effective rate plus 0.50%, or (iii) LIBOR plus 1.0% plus in each case 0.75% to 1.25%. At December 31, 2015 the annual interest rate in effect on the term loan was 2.1875%.
The Company pays a commitment fee of 0.15% to 0.25% per annum on the unused portion of the Facility, and fees on issued letters of credit at an annual rate of 1.5% to 1.75% based on the average availability. Certain payments are restricted if the availability under the revolving credit line falls below 20% of the total revolving credit line, and the Company is subject to pro forma compliance with the fixed charge coverage ratio if applicable.
Quarterly installments of principal on the term loan are payable based on a straight line 15 year amortization period, with the balance due at maturity. The Company does not expect to repay the revolving credit line portion of the Facility within the next year.
The Facility is secured by all property owned, leased or operated by the Company in the United States and includes certain 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 and share repurchases); sell certain assets; and make investments.
The Company must maintain a minimum fixed charge coverage ratio of 1.1 to 1.0 at all times. If the outstanding term loans are less than $17.5 million and the fixed charge coverage ratio equals or exceeds 1.25 to 1.0, the fixed charge coverage ratio ceases to apply and thereafter shall only be triggered if average monthly availability is less than 15% of the amount of the revolving credit line. At September 30, 2015 our fixed charge coverage ratio was 1.4 to 1.0.
During November 2015, we made a $16.5 million prepayment on the term loan, bringing the outstanding term loan to $17.3 million, and the fixed charge coverage ratio ceased to apply.
Our average availability during the quarter ended December 31, 2015 was 65.0%.
The Company intends to use the Facility for working capital and general corporate purposes, including dividend payments and share repurchases, in addition to the refinancing of our Senior Notes which occurred in March 2015. At both December 31, 2015 and June 30, 2015, there was $0.2 million of standby letters of credit outstanding under the Facility and total availability under the Facility of $74.8 million.
At both December 31, 2015 and June 30, 2015, we were in compliance with all of the covenants under the Facility.
The following table summarizes, as of December 31, 2015, the timing of cash payments related to our outstanding long-term debt obligations for the remaining six months of fiscal 2016, and each of the five fiscal years subsequent to June 30, 2016, and thereafter (in thousands).
The entire disclosure for information about short-term and long-term debt arrangements, which includes amounts of borrowings under each line of credit, note payable, commercial paper issue, bonds indenture, debenture issue, own-share lending arrangements and any other contractual agreement to repay funds, and about the underlying arrangements, rationale for a classification as long-term, including repayment terms, interest rates, collateral provided, restrictions on use of assets and activities, whether or not in compliance with debt covenants, and other matters important to users of the financial statements, such as the effects of refinancing and noncompliance with debt covenants.
