NOTE 14 – DEBT:
On June 1, 2021, the Company entered into a $20,000 five-year term loan with Bank of America. The term loan requires monthly principal payments of $167 through June 1, 2026, with the remaining principal amount plus all interest due on the maturity date. The interest rate on the term loan is the applicable Bloomberg Short-Term Bank Yield Index ("BSBY"), plus 1.50%, subject to a 0.00% floor. In addition, on June 1, 2021, the Company terminated its revolving credit facility agreement with JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A. and entered into a revolving credit facility with Bank of America that provides a $30,000 line of credit, including letters of credit and bank guarantees, expandable at the Company’s option and the bank’s approval at any time up to $40,000. As of December 31, 2021, the Company had $9,750 outstanding on the line of credit. The agreement has a five-year term. Amounts outstanding under the facility agreement bear interest at a rate equal to BSBY plus 1.50%, subject to a 0.00% floor. As of December 31, 2021, the BSBY rate was 0.0558%. Outstanding letters of credit under the agreement are subject to a fee of 1.50% per annum of the outstanding undrawn amount of each letter of credit that is not secured by cash and 0.6% of each letter of credit that is secured by cash. The upfront fee for both the term loan and revolving credit facility was 0.20% of the committed facilities and amounts available for borrowing under the revolving credit facility are subject to an unused commitment fee of 0.25%. Under the term loan agreement and revolving credit facility, the Company covenants to maintain a maximum total leverage ratio, as defined in such agreements, of 3.0 to 1.0, which may be increased to 3.25 to 1.0 following an acquisition for a period of twelve months following the closing of the acquisition. In addition, the Company covenants to maintain a minimum fixed charge coverage ratio, as defined in such agreements, of 1.2 to 1.0 and minimum margined assets, as defined in such agreements, of 100% of total amounts outstanding on the revolving credit facility, including letters of credit. At December 31, 2021, we were out of compliance with our bank agreement covenants and were granted a waiver for noncompliance by Bank of America, N.A. (See Note 1). As part of the waiver, until such time as Bank of America has received all required financial information with respect to the Company for the period ending on or about March 31, 2022, and such financial information confirms to the Bank of America's satisfaction that no default exists at such time, the Company will not permit the principal balance outstanding under the line of credit with Bank of America to exceed $15,000.
On June, 1, 2021, the Company entered into an agreement to amend its 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 of $5 and outstanding letters of credit are subject to a fee of between 0.75% and 0.85%, 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. The Company's obligations under the agreement are secured by cash held with the bank. As of December 31, 2021, there was $7,215 letters of credit outstanding with HSBC. The agreement is subject to an annual renewal by the bank on July 31 of each year.
Letters of credit outstanding as of December 31, 2021 and March 31, 2021 were $8,399 and $11,567, respectively.
