n/a - not applicable
Market risk associated with the Company’s fixed and variable rate long-term debt relates to the potential change in fair value and negative impact to future earnings, respectively, from a change in interest rates. The aggregate fair value of debt is based primarily on the Company’s estimates of interest rates, maturities, credit risk, and underlying collateral and is classified as Level 3 within the fair value hierarchy.
The following table summarizes scheduled maturities of the Company’s debt, including current maturities, as of September 30, 2021:
Components of interest expense are as follows for the periods presented:
Term Loan Facility
On February 9, 2021 (the “Effective Date”), Outlets entered into a fifth amendment to the credit agreement governing its senior secured term loan facility (as amended, the “Term Loan Facility”). The fifth amendment provided for, among other things, a supplemental term loan in the aggregate principal amount of $65.0 million (the “Supplemental Term Loan Facility”) that increased the term loan B facility. The Supplemental Term Loan Facility has the same maturity date (February 14, 2027) and terms as the term loan B facility, except that voluntary prepayments made within six months after the Effective Date are subject to a 1% soft call prepayment premium. The other terms of loans under the Term Loan Facility remain unchanged, including the applicable margin for loans under the term loan B facility. The proceeds of the Supplemental Term Loan Facility, together with cash on hand, were used to (i) repay the $75.0 million term loan B-1 facility and (ii) pay fees and expenses incurred in connection with the Supplemental Term Loan Facility.
The Term Loan Facility (including loans under the Supplemental Term Loan Facility) provides a margin for loans of: (x) in the case of ABR Loans (as defined in the Term Loan Facility) 1.00% per annum (subject to a leverage-based step-up to 1.25% if Outlets exceeds certain leverage ratio tests), and (y) in the case of Eurodollar Loans (as defined in the Term Loan Facility) 2.00% per annum (subject to a leverage-based step-up to 2.25% if Outlets exceeds certain leverage ratio tests and a 0.00% floor on Eurodollar Loans).
All obligations under the Term Loan Facility (including loans under the Supplemental Term Loan Facility) are secured by (1) a first-priority security interest in substantially all of the property and assets of Outlets and the other guarantors under the Term Loan Facility, with certain exceptions, and (2) a second-priority security interest in the collateral securing the revolving credit facility (“ABL Facility”).
The Company evaluated the fifth amendment to the Term Loan Facility in accordance with ASC 470-50, Debt, and determined that the amendment resulted in a debt modification that was not an extinguishment. Therefore, no loss on debt extinguishment was recognized. The Company incurred costs of $1.6 million in connection with the refinancing which were comprised of (i) $1.4 million of fees to creditors that were accounted for as debt issuance costs and are amortizing to interest expense over the term of the Term Loan Facility using the interest method and (ii) $0.2 million of professional fees to other third parties that were expensed during the thirteen week period ended April 1, 2021 and included in general and administrative expense on the consolidated statements of operations and comprehensive income.
Asset-based Loan Facility (“ABL”)
As of September 30, 2021, the Company’s ABL Facility had a maximum availability of $400.0 million with actual available borrowings limited to the sum, at the time of calculation, of (a) eligible credit card receivables multiplied by the credit card advance rate, plus (b) the cost of eligible inventory, net of inventory reserves, multiplied by the applicable appraisal percentage, plus (c) 85% of eligible net trade receivables, plus (d) all eligible cash on hand, plus (e) 100% of the amount for which the eligible letter of credit must be honored after giving effect to any draws, minus certain Availability Reserves (each component as defined in the ABL Facility). The ABL Facility has a maturity date of February 14, 2025 and is available for issuance of letters of credit and contains a sublimit of $50.0 million for standby letters of credit and commercial letters of credit combined. Available borrowings under the facility are reduced by the face amount of outstanding letters of credit.
All obligations under the ABL Facility are secured by (1) a first-priority security interest in the cash and cash equivalents, accounts receivable, inventory, and related assets of Outlets and the other guarantors under the ABL Facility, with certain exceptions, and (2) a second-priority security interest in substantially all of the other property and assets of Outlets and the other guarantors under the Term Loan Facility.
Net availability under the ABL Facility, as reduced by outstanding letters of credit of $21.2 million, was $378.8 million based on financial data as of September 30, 2021.
Spartan Revolving Line of Credit Facility
In connection with its June 4, 2021 acquisition of Spartan, the Company assumed Spartan’s existing short-term line of credit facility (the “Spartan LOC”), which has a maximum borrowing availability of $8.0 million with actual available borrowings based on Spartan’s eligible working capital balances. The Spartan LOC is an on-demand line of credit that has no stated maturity date, although it is cancellable at any time by either the Company or the lender with any amounts outstanding upon cancellation becoming immediately due and payable. Net availability under the Spartan LOC was $8.0 million as of September 30, 2021.
The credit agreements governing the Term Loan Facility, ABL Facility, and Spartan LOC contain customary restrictive covenants, which, among other things and with certain exceptions, limit the Company’s ability to (i) incur additional indebtedness and liens in connection with such indebtedness, (ii) pay dividends and make certain other restricted payments, (iii) effect mergers or consolidations, (iv) enter into transactions with affiliates, (v) sell or dispose of property or assets, and (vi) engage in unrelated lines of business. In addition, these credit agreements subject the Company to certain reporting obligations and require that the Company satisfy certain financial covenants, including, among other things, a requirement that if borrowings under the ABL Facility exceed 90% of availability, the Company will maintain a certain fixed charge coverage ratio (defined as Consolidated EBITDA less non-financed capital expenditures and income taxes paid to consolidated fixed charges, in each case as more fully defined in the ABL Facility).
The Term Loan Facility has no financial maintenance covenants. The Company is currently in compliance with all material covenants under the credit agreements.
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.
