|Debt Disclosure [Abstract]|
The Company maintains various credit facilities from time to time to finance acquisitions, the purchase of real estate, construction equipment, plants and other fixed assets, and for general working capital purposes. These include, among other things, a credit agreement with BBVA USA (“BBVA”), as agent, issuing bank and a lender, and certain other lenders (as amended, the “BBVA Credit Agreement”), which provides for a term loan with an original principal amount of $82.0 million (the “Term Loan”) and a $30.0 million revolving credit facility (the “Revolving Credit Facility”). Debt at March 31, 2020 and September 30, 2019 consisted of the following (in thousands):
On October 1, 2019, the Company and each of its wholly owned subsidiaries entered into an amendment to the BBVA Credit Agreement that, among other things: (i) added Bank of America, N.A. (“Bank of America”) as a party in connection with the assignment by BBVA to Bank of America of certain of its lending obligations under the BBVA Credit Agreement; (ii) increased the aggregate amount of the Term Loan commitment by the lenders by $10.0 million to $54.7 million; (iii) provided for a Term Loan advance to the Company in the aggregate amount of $10.0 million, with the proceeds to be used solely for the purpose of buying out certain operating lease obligations; and (iv) extended the maturity date for the outstanding Term Loan advances from July 1, 2022 to October 1, 2024. In order to hedge against the risk of changes in interest rates on this advance, on October 1, 2019, the Company entered into an interest rate swap agreement with a notional amount of $5.9 million, under which the Company pays a fixed percentage rate of 1.58% and receives a credit based on the applicable London Interbank Offered Rate (“LIBOR”).
On February 27, 2020 the Company entered into an additional interest rate swap agreement with a notional amount of $26.3 million, under which the Company pays a fixed percentage rate of 1.24% and receives a credit based on the applicable LIBOR rate.
In March 2020, the Company drew $15.0 million on the Revolving Credit Facility to fund the March 23, 2020 Florida acquisition and to provide additional liquidity (see Note 4 - Business Acquisitions).
