Line Of Credit


The Company has a $75,000 line of credit with Bank of America.  Interest is computed at the bank’s Prime Rate or LIBOR, 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, set forth in a separate pledge agreement with the bank.  On February 19, 2016, the Company entered into an Amended and Restated Credit Agreement with Bank of America, which extends the term of the Credit Agreement to April 27, 2021 and increases the Company’s consolidated rolling four-quarter adjusted EBITDA covenant from $60,000 to equal to or greater than $100,000 and a ratio of consolidated funded debt to adjusted EBITDA of 2.0 to 1.0 at the end of each quarter.    The adjusted EBITDA under this agreement is modified for certain non-cash expensesPart of the credit agreement is that any existing bank guarantees are considered a reduction of the overall availability of credit and part of the covenant calculation.    This resulted in a $4,153, and $5,241 reduction in the available borrowing limit as of January 2, 2016 and December 31, 2016, respectively, due to existing normal course of business guarantees in certain markets.

There was no outstanding balance on this line of credit at January 2, 2016 or at December 31, 2016.  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 line of credit is replaced or terms are renegotiated.
