In April 2019, the Company entered into a Revolving Credit Agreement with Truist Bank N.A. (formerly SunTrust Bank N.A.) and Bank of America, N.A. (the “Credit Agreement”) for an unsecured revolving commitment of up to $175.0 million, which includes a $75.0 million letter of credit subfacility and a $25.0 million swingline subfacility (the “Revolving Commitment”), and an unsecured variable rate $250.0 million term loan (the “Term Loan”). On January 27, 2022, the Company entered into an amendment (the “Amendment”) to the Credit Agreement with Truist Bank and Bank of America, N.A whereby additional term loans in an aggregate principal amount of $252.0 million were advanced to the Company. The Amendment also replaced LIBOR as the benchmark interest rate for borrowings with the Bloomberg Short-Term Bank Yield Index rate (“BSBY”) and reset the amortization schedule for all term loans under the Credit Agreement. The maturity of all loans made under the Credit Agreement prior to the Amendment remains unchanged at April 29, 2024 and all other terms of the Credit Agreement remain unchanged in all material respects. Subsequent to the Amendment, the aggregate outstanding principal balance of all term loans under the Credit Agreement was $300.0 million (consisting of an outstanding principal balance of the initial term loan in the amount of $48.0 million and the additional $252.0 million term loan borrowing made). In addition, the Credit Agreement has provisions to extend the term of the Revolving
Commitment beyond April 29, 2024, as well as the right at any time and from time to time to prepay any borrowing under the Credit Agreement, in whole or in part, without premium or penalty.
As of March 31, 2022, the Company had outstanding borrowings of $295.8 million under the Term Loan. The aggregate effective interest rate on the debt outstanding as of March 31, 2022 was 0.871%. The effective interest rate is comprised of the BSBY plus a margin of 75.0 basis points as determined by the Company’s leverage ratio calculation. As of December 31, 2021, the Revolving Commitment had outstanding borrowings of $107.0 million and the Term Loan had outstanding borrowings of $48.0 million.
The Company maintains approximately $71.3 million in letters of credit as of March 31, 2022. These letters of credit are required by the Company’s insurance companies, due to the Company’s high deductible insurance program, to secure various workers’ compensation and casualty insurance contracts coverage and were increased from $37.2 million as of December 31, 2021. The Company believes that it has adequate liquid assets, funding sources and insurance accruals to accommodate such claims.
In order to comply with applicable debt covenants, the Company is required to maintain at all times a leverage ratio of not greater than 3.00:1.00. The Leverage Ratio is calculated as of the last day of the fiscal quarter most recently ended. The Company remained in compliance with applicable debt covenants through the date of this filing and expects to maintain compliance throughout 2022.
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.
