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”). Both the Revolving Commitment and the Term Loan (“Credit Facility”) have five-year terms commencing on April 29, 2019. 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 September 30, 2021, the Company had outstanding borrowings of $53 million under the Term Loan and $15 million under the Revolving Commitment. The aggregate effective interest rate on the debt outstanding as of September 30, 2021 was 0.835%. The effective interest rate is comprised of the 1-month LIBOR plus a margin of 75.0 basis points as determined by the Company’s leverage ratio calculation. As of December 31, 2020, the Revolving Commitment had outstanding borrowings of $67.0 million and the Term Loan had outstanding borrowings of $136.0 million. The Credit Agreement includes a debt covenant that requires the Company’s leverage ratio to be no 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 2021.
