Long-term debt consisted of the following:
Senior Secured Credit Facility
On October 30, 2017, the Company, as a credit party and a guarantor, Thermon Holding Corp. (the “US Borrower”) and Thermon Canada Inc. (the “Canadian Borrower” and together with the US Borrower, the “Borrowers”), as borrowers, entered into a credit agreement with several banks and other financial institutions or entities from time to time (the “Lenders”) and JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A. as administrative agent (the "Agent"), that provides for a $250,000 seven-year term loan B facility made available to the US Borrower and a $60,000 five-year senior secured revolving credit facility made available to the US Borrower and the Canadian Borrower, which we refer to collectively as our “credit facility”. The proceeds of the term loan B were used to (1) pay in full $70,875 principal and interest on a previously issued term loan due April 2019; (2) repay $6,000 in unpaid principal and interest on the US Borrower's revolving line of credit; (3) to fund approximately $201,900 CAD of the purchase price of the THS acquisition and certain related real estate assets for approximately $164,900; and (4) pay certain transaction fees and expenses in connection with the THS acquisition and the credit facility.
Interest rates and fees. The US Borrower will have the option to pay interest on the term loan B at a base rate, plus an applicable margin, or at a rate based on LIBOR, (subject to a floor of 1.00%), plus an applicable margin. The applicable margin for base rate loans is 275 basis points and the applicable margin for LIBOR loans is 375 basis points. The US Borrower may borrow revolving loans in US dollars and the Canadian Borrower may also borrow revolving loans in Canadian dollars. Borrowings under the revolving credit facility (a) made in US dollars will bear interest at a rate equal to a base rate, plus an applicable margin of 225 basis points or at a rate based on LIBOR, plus an applicable margin of 325 basis points and (b) made in Canadian dollars will bear interest at a rate equal to a Canadian base rate, plus an applicable margin of 225 basis points or at a rate based on Canadian Dollar Offered Rate, plus an applicable margin of 325 basis points; provided that, following the completion of the fiscal quarter ending March 31, 2018, the applicable margins in each case will be determined based on a leverage-based performance grid, as set forth in the credit agreement. In addition to paying interest on outstanding principal under the revolving credit facility, the US Borrower is required to pay a commitment fee in respect of unutilized revolving commitments of 0.50% per annum based on a leverage-based performance grid.
Maturity and repayment. The revolving credit facility terminates on October 28, 2022. The scheduled maturity date of the term loan facility is October 30, 2024. Commencing on April 1, 2018, the term loan began amortizing in equal quarterly installments of 0.25% of the $250,000 term loan, with the payment of the balance at maturity. The US Borrower will be able to voluntarily prepay the principal of the term loan without penalty or premium (subject to breakage fees) at any time in whole or in part after April 30, 2018. The US Borrower is required to repay the term loan with certain asset sale and insurance proceeds, certain debt proceeds and, commencing for the fiscal year ending March 31, 2019, 50% of excess cash flow (reducing to 25% if the Company’s leverage ratio is less than 4.0 to 1.0 but greater than or equal to 3.5 to 1.0 and 0% if the Company’s leverage ratio is less than 3.5 to 1.0). Commencing April 1, 2018, the Company will be required to make quarterly principal payments of the term loan of $625 through July 31, 2024. The remaining balance will be due at maturity of the term loan facility on October 30, 2024.
Accordion. The credit facility allows for incremental term loans and incremental revolving commitments in an amount not to exceed $30,000 and an unlimited additional amount that would not cause the consolidated secured leverage ratio to exceed 4.0 to 1.0 (or, if less, the maximum consolidated leverage ratio permitted by the revolving credit facility on such date).
At December 31, 2018, we had $6,231 in outstanding borrowings under our revolving credit facility. The interest rate on outstanding revolving credit facility borrowings on December 31, 2018 was 5.13%. As of December 31, 2018, we had $49,157 of available borrowing capacity under our revolving credit facility after taking into account the borrowing base, outstanding borrowings and letters of credit outstanding. The variable rate term loan bears interest at the LIBOR rate plus an applicable margin dictated by our leverage ratio (as described above).
Guarantees; security. The term loan is guaranteed by the Company and all of the Company's current and future wholly-owned domestic material subsidiaries (the “US Subsidiary Guarantors”), subject to certain exceptions. Obligations of the US Borrower under the revolving credit facility are guaranteed by the Company and the US Subsidiary Guarantors. The obligations of the Canadian Borrower under the revolving credit facility are guaranteed by the Company, the US Borrower, the US Subsidiary Guarantors and each of the wholly owned Canadian material subsidiaries of the Canadian Borrower, subject to certain exceptions. The term loan and the obligations of the US Borrower under the revolving credit facility are secured by a first lien on all of the Company’s assets and the assets of the US Subsidiary Guarantors, including 100% of the capital stock of the US Subsidiary Guarantors and 65% of the capital stock of the first tier material foreign subsidiaries of the Company, the US Borrower and the US Subsidiary Guarantors, subject to certain exceptions. The obligations of the Canadian Borrower under the revolving credit facility are secured by a first lien on all of the Company's assets, the US Subsidiary Guarantors' assets, the Canadian Borrower’s assets and the assets of the material Canadian subsidiaries of the Canadian Borrower, including 100% of the capital stock of the Canadian Borrower’s material Canadian subsidiaries.
Financial covenants. The term loan is not subject to any financial covenants. The revolving credit facility requires the Company, on a consolidated basis, to maintain certain financial covenant ratios. The Company must maintain a consolidated leverage ratio on the last day of the following periods: 5.5:1.0 for December 31, 2017 through September 30, 2018; 5.0:1.0 for December 31, 2018 through September 30, 2019; 4.5:1.0 for December 31, 2019 through September 30, 2020; and 3.75:1.0 for December 31, 2020 and each fiscal quarter thereafter. In addition, on the last day of any period of four fiscal quarters, the Company must maintain a consolidated fixed charge coverage ratio of not less than 1.25:1.0. As of December 31, 2018, we were in compliance with all financial covenants of the credit facility.
Restrictive covenants. The credit agreement governing our facility contains various restrictive covenants that, among other things, restrict or limit our ability to (subject to certain negotiated exceptions): incur additional indebtedness; grant liens; make fundamental changes; sell assets; make restricted payments; enter into sales and leasebacks; make investments; prepay certain indebtedness; enter into transactions with affiliates; and enter into restrictive agreements.
