Senior Secured Revolving Credit Facility
The Company has a senior secured revolving credit facility with a syndicate of lenders (the “Credit Facility”) that, as of June 30, 2023, had a maximum credit amount of $5.0 billion, a borrowing base of $2.0 billion and an elected commitment amount of $1.5 billion, with borrowings outstanding of $528.0 million at a weighted-average interest rate of 7.26%, and letters of credit outstanding of $16.4 million. The credit agreement governing the Credit Facility (the “Credit Agreement”) provides for interest-only payments until October 19, 2027 when the Credit Agreement matures and any outstanding borrowings are due.
Borrowings outstanding under the Credit Agreement bear interest at the Company’s option at either (i) a base rate for a base rate loan plus a margin between 0.75% to 1.75%, where the base rate is defined as the greatest of the prime rate, the federal funds rate plus 0.50%, and the SOFR plus 0.1% (“Adjusted SOFR”) for a one month period plus 1.00%, or (ii) an Adjusted SOFR plus a margin between 1.75% to 2.75%. The Company also incurs commitment fees at rates ranging between 0.375% to 0.500% on the unused portion of lender commitments, which are included in “Interest expense” in the consolidated statements of operations.
The borrowing base under the Credit Agreement is subject to regular redeterminations in the spring and fall of each year, as well as special redeterminations described in the Credit Agreement, which in each case may reduce the amount of the borrowing base. On May 1, 2023, as part of the Company’s spring 2023 redetermination, the borrowing base of $2.0 billion and elected commitment amount of $1.5 billion were reaffirmed.
The Company’s Credit Facility and the indentures governing the 8.25% Senior Notes due 2025, the 6.375% Senior Notes due 2026, the 8.0% Senior Notes due 2028, and the 7.5% Senior Notes due 2030 (collectively, the “Senior Notes”) limit the Company and certain of its subsidiaries with respect to the amount of additional indebtedness, liens, dividends and other payments to shareholders, repurchases or redemptions of the Company’s common stock, redemptions of senior notes, investments, acquisitions, mergers, asset dispositions, transactions with affiliates, hedging transactions and other matters, along with maintenance of certain financial ratios.
Under the Credit Agreement, the Company must maintain the following financial covenants determined as of the last day of the quarter: (1) a Leverage Ratio (as defined in the Credit Agreement) of no more than 3.50 to 1.00 and (2) a Current Ratio (as defined in the Credit Agreement) of not less than 1.00 to 1.00. The Company was in compliance with these covenants at June 30, 2023.
The Credit Agreement and indentures are subject to customary events of default. If an event of default occurs and is continuing, the holders or lenders may elect to accelerate amounts due (except in the case of a bankruptcy event of default, in which case such amounts will automatically become due and payable).
