On June, 1, 2021, the Company entered into an agreement to amend the letter of credit facility agreement with HSBC Bank USA, N.A. and decreased the Company’s line of credit from $15,000 to $7,500.  Under the amended agreement, the Company incurs an annual facility fee $5 and outstanding letters of credit are subject to a fee of between .75% and .85%, depending on the term of the letter of credit.  Interest is payable on the principal amounts of unreimbursed letter of credit draws under the facility at a rate of 3% plus the bank’s prime rate.

In addition, on June 1, 2021, the Company entered into an employment agreement with a key employee of BNI, which is consistent with agreements with other named executive officers.
