Senior Secured Credit Facilities
On September 29, 2021, Thermon Group Holdings, Inc., as a credit party and a guarantor, Thermon Holding Corp. (“THC” or the “U.S. Borrower”) and Thermon Canada Inc. (the “Canadian Borrower” and together with THC, the “Borrowers”), as borrowers, entered into an Amended and Restated Credit Agreement (the “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”).
The Credit Agreement is an amendment and restatement of that certain Credit Agreement dated October 30, 2017 by and among Borrowers, the lenders party thereto and JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A. as administrative agent (the “Prior Credit Agreement”), and provides for the following credit facilities described below (collectively, the “Facilities”).
•Revolving Credit Facility: A USD $100,000 -year secured revolving credit facility made available to the U.S. Borrower. The Revolving Credit Facility includes sublimits for letters of credit and swing-line loans (the “Revolving Credit Facility”).
•U.S. Term Loan Facility: A USD $80,000 -year secured term loan A (the “U.S. Term Loan”) made available to the U.S. Borrower (the “U.S. Term Loan Facility”); and
•Canadian Term Loan Facility: A CAD $76,182 -year term loan A (the “Canadian Term Loan” and, together with the U.S. Term Loan, the “Term Loans”) made available to the Canadian Borrower (the “Canadian Term Loan Facility,” and together with the U.S. Term Loan Facility, the “Term Loan Facilities”).
Proceeds of the Facilities were used at closing to repay and refinance the Borrowers’ existing indebtedness under the Prior Credit Agreement and pay all interest, fees and expenses related thereto, and thereafter are expected to be used for working capital and general corporate purposes.
The Credit Agreement allows for incremental term loans and incremental revolving commitments in an amount not to exceed USD $100,000.
Maturity and Repayment
Each of the Facilities terminates on September 29, 2026. Commencing January 1, 2022, each of the Term Loans will amortize as set forth in the table below, with payments on the first day of each January, April, July and October, with the balance of each Term Loan Facility due at maturity.
The U.S. Term Loan and the obligations of the U.S. Borrower under the Revolving Credit Facility are guaranteed by the Company and all of the U.S. Borrower’s current and future wholly owned domestic material subsidiaries (the “U.S. Subsidiary Guarantors”), subject to certain exceptions. The Canadian Term Loan is guaranteed by the Company, the U.S.
Borrower, the U.S. Subsidiary Guarantors and each of the wholly owned Canadian material subsidiaries of the Canadian Borrower, subject to certain exceptions.
The U.S. Term Loan and the obligations of the U.S. Borrower under the Revolving Credit Facility are secured by a first lien on all of the assets of the Company, the U.S. Borrower and the U.S. Subsidiary Guarantors, including 100% of the capital stock of the U.S. Subsidiary Guarantors and 65% of the capital stock of the first tier material foreign subsidiaries of the Company, the U.S. Borrower and the U.S. Subsidiary Guarantors, subject to certain exceptions. The Canadian Term Loan is secured by a first lien on all of the assets of the Company, the U.S. Borrower, the U.S. Subsidiary Guarantors, the Canadian Borrower and the material Canadian subsidiaries of the Canadian Borrower, including 100% of the capital stock of the Canadian Borrower’s material Canadian subsidiaries.
Interest Rates and Fees
The U.S. Borrower will have the option to pay interest on the U.S. Term Loan and borrowings under the Revolving Credit Facility at a base rate, plus an applicable margin, or at a rate based on LIBOR plus an applicable margin. The Canadian Borrower will have the option to pay interest on the Canadian Term Loan at a prime rate, plus an applicable margin, or at a rate based on the Canadian Dollar Offered Rate, or "CDOR," plus an applicable margin.
Under the applicable Facilities, the margin for base rate loans and Canadian prime rate loans is 62.5 basis points and the applicable margin for LIBOR loans and CDOR loans is 162.5 basis points; provided that, following the completion of one full fiscal quarter after the closing date, the applicable margins will be determined based on a leverage-based performance grid.
In addition to paying interest on outstanding principal under the Revolving Credit Facility, the U.S. Borrower is required to pay a commitment fee in respect of unutilized revolving commitments of 0.25% per annum, provided that, following the completion of one full fiscal quarter after the closing date, the commitment fee will be determined based on a leverage-based performance grid.
The Borrowers will be able to voluntarily prepay the principal of the loans outstanding under each of the Facilities without penalty or premium (subject to breakage fees) at any time in whole or in part.
Each Borrower is required to repay its respective Term Loan with certain asset sale and insurance proceeds and certain debt proceeds.
Debt Issuance Costs
We incurred fees to third parties in connection with our entry into the Credit Agreement described above. The debt issuance costs of $1,210 were capitalized and will be amortized over the life of the Credit Agreement. Additionally, we recognized a loss on debt extinguishment of $2,569, which was recorded to Other income/(expense) on our condensed consolidated statements of operations and comprehensive income.
In connection with the Credit Agreement, the Company is required, on a consolidated basis, to maintain certain financial covenant ratios. On the last day of any period of four fiscal quarters ending during a period set forth below, the Company must maintain a consolidated leverage ratio that does not exceed the ratios for such period set forth below (each of which ratios may be increased by 0.50:1.00 for each of the four fiscal quarters following certain acquisitions at the election of the U.S. Borrower):
In addition, on the last day of any period of four fiscal quarters ending on or after September 30, 2021, the Company must maintain a consolidated fixed charge coverage ratio of not less than 1.25:1.00. As of September 30, 2021, we were in compliance with all financial covenants of the Credit Agreement.
The Credit Agreement contains restrictive covenants (in each case, subject to certain exclusions) that limit, among other things, the ability of the Company and its subsidiaries (including the Borrowers) to:
•incur additional indebtedness;
•make fundamental changes;
•make restricted payments;
•enter into sales and leasebacks;
•prepay certain indebtedness;
•enter into transactions with affiliates; and
•enter into restrictive agreements.
The covenants are subject to various baskets and materiality thresholds, with certain of the baskets to the restrictions on the repayment of subordinated or unsecured indebtedness, restricted payments and investments being available only when the Company’s pro forma leverage ratios are less than a certain level.
The Credit Agreement contains certain customary representations and warranties, affirmative covenants and events of default, including, among other things, payment defaults, breach of representations and warranties, covenant defaults, cross-defaults to certain indebtedness, certain events of bankruptcy, certain events under ERISA, judgment defaults, actual or asserted failure of any guaranty or security documents to be in full force and effect and change of control. If such an event of default occurs, the Agent will be entitled to take various actions, including the termination of the commitment for the Revolving Credit Facility, the acceleration of amounts due under the Credit Agreement and certain other actions that a secured creditor is customarily permitted to take following a default.
At September 30, 2021, we had no outstanding borrowings under the Revolving Credit Facility. We had $96,963 of available borrowing capacity thereunder after taking into account the borrowing base and $3,037 of outstanding letters of credit. The Term Loans bear interest at the LIBOR rate or CDOR rate, as applicable, in each case plus an applicable margin dictated by our leverage ratio (as described above). The interest rates on the Term Loan Facilities on September 30, 2021 were 2.05% for the Canadian Term Loan Facility, and 1.71% for the U.S. Term Loan Facility. Interest expense has been presented net of interest income on our condensed consolidated statements of operations and comprehensive income.
