Debt Disclosure [Abstract]  
On February 24, 2023, the Company entered into a revolving credit agreement ("the Credit Agreement") with, among others, JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A. (“JPMorgan Chase”), as administrative agent (in such capacity, the “Administrative Agent”), which refinanced its previous credit facility described below.
The Credit Agreement provides for a $1.0 billion revolving credit facility (the “Credit Facility”), which may be denominated in U.S. Dollars and other currencies, including Euros, Australian Dollars, Canadian Dollars, New Zealand Dollars, Pounds Sterling and Japanese Yen, subject to a $400 million foreign currency sublimit. The Credit Facility also includes sub-facilities for the issuance of letters of credit of up to $150 million and swing line loans at the Administrative Agent’s discretion of up to $50 million. Certain subsidiaries of Rollins provide unsecured guarantees of the Credit Facility. Rollins has the ability to expand its borrowing availability under the Credit Agreement in the form of increased revolving commitments or one or more tranches of term loans by up to an additional $750 million, subject to the agreement of the participating lenders and certain other customary conditions. The maturity date of the loans under the Credit Agreement is February 24, 2028.
Loans under the Credit Agreement bear interest, at Rollins’ election, at (i) for loans denominated in U.S. Dollars, (A) an alternate base rate (subject to a floor of 0.00%), which is the greatest of (x) the prime rate publicly announced from time to time by JPMorgan Chase, (y) the greater of the federal funds effective rate and the Federal Reserve Bank of New York overnight bank funding rate, plus 50 basis points, and (z) Adjusted Term SOFR for a one month interest period, plus a margin ranging from 0.00% to 0.50% per annum based on Rollins’ consolidated total net leverage ratio; or (B) the greater of term SOFR for the applicable interest period plus 10 basis points (“Adjusted Term SOFR”) and zero, plus a margin ranging from 1.00% to 1.50% per annum based on Rollins’ consolidated total net leverage ratio; and (ii) for loans denominated in other currencies, including Euros, Australian Dollars, Canadian Dollars, New Zealand Dollars, Pounds Sterling and Japanese Yen, such interest rates as set forth in the Credit Agreement.
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 “2019 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 2019 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 2019 Credit Agreement. The Amendment was refinanced with the Credit Agreement described above.
As of March 31, 2023, the Company had outstanding borrowings of $62.4 million under the Credit Facility. The aggregate effective interest rate on the debt outstanding as of March 31, 2023 was 6.1%. As of December 31, 2022, the Revolving Commitment had outstanding borrowings of $54.9 million under the previous Term Loan with an effective interest rate of 5.1%.
The Company maintains $194.2 million in letters of credit as of March 31, 2023. 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 $71.3 million as of December 31, 2022. This balance is higher as of quarter end due to overlapping letters of credit as the Company transitions to new letters of credit associated with the new Credit Facility. The Company believes that it has adequate liquid assets, funding sources and insurance accruals to accommodate potential future insurance claims.
The Credit Agreement contains customary terms and conditions, including, without limitation, certain financial covenants including covenants restricting Rollins’ ability to incur certain indebtedness or liens, or to merge or consolidate with or sell substantially all of its assets to another entity. Further, the Credit Agreement contains a financial covenant restricting Rollins’ ability to permit the ratio of Rollins’ consolidated total net debt to EBITDA to exceed 3.50 to 1.00. Following certain acquisitions, Rollins may elect to increase the financial covenant level to 4.00 to 1.00 temporarily. The ratio is calculated as of the last day of the fiscal quarter most recently ended. The Credit Agreement also contains provisions permitting a future environmental, social and governance amendment, subject to certain terms and conditions contained therein, by which pricing may be adjusted pursuant to the Company's’ performance measured against certain sustainability-linked metrics. The Company remained in compliance with applicable debt covenants through the date of this filing and expects to maintain compliance throughout 2023.
