Line Of Credit [Abstract]  

The Company has a $75,000 line of credit (“Credit Agreement”) with Bank of America (“Bank”). Interest is computed at the Bank’s Prime Rate or a LIBOR-plus “Eurodollar” rate, adjusted by features specified in the Credit Agreement. The collateral for this line of credit is the pledge of the capital stock of certain subsidiaries of the Company, pursuant to a separate pledge agreement with the Bank. On February 19, 2016, the Company entered into an Amended and Restated Credit Agreement with the Bank, which extended the term of the Credit Agreement to April 27, 2021 and increased the Company’s consolidated rolling four-quarter adjusted EBITDA covenant to $100,000 or greater and its ratio of consolidated funded debt to adjusted EBITDA of equal to or less than 2.0 to 1.0 at the end of each quarter.

On July 15, 2019, the Company entered into a Third Amendment to the Amended and Restated Credit Agreement (the “Third Amendment”). The Third Amendment established a procedure for the Company to request an increase in the line of credit by an amount not to exceed $125,000 (up to $200,000 in the aggregate). The Company may make a maximum of three such requests in increments of at least $25,000 to the Bank. The Bank, at its election, will notify the Company whether or not it agrees to increase the line of credit and, if so, whether by an amount equal to or less than the amount requested by the Company. The line of credit will be automatically reduced to $100,000, as of September 30, 2020.


The adjusted EBITDA under the Credit Agreement is modified for certain non-cash expenses. Any existing bank guarantees are considered a reduction of the overall availability of credit and part of the covenant calculation under the Credit Agreement. This provision resulted in a reduction of $8,856 and $8,924 in the available borrowing limit as of June 27, 2020 and December 28, 2019, respectively, due to existing normal course of business guarantees in certain markets.

There was no outstanding debt on this line of credit at June 27, 2020. The Company will be required to pay any balance on this line of credit in full at the time of maturity in April 2021, unless the Credit Agreement is replaced or its terms are renegotiated.
