|Debt Disclosure [Abstract]|
The Company maintains credit facilities to finance acquisitions, to fund the purchase of real estate, construction equipment, plants and other fixed assets, and for general working capital purposes. Debt at June 30, 2021 and September 30, 2020 consisted of the following (in thousands):
Since June 24, 2021, the Company and each of its subsidiaries have been parties to a Second Amended and Restated Credit Agreement with BBVA USA, as administrative agent, joint lead arranger, sole bookrunner and lender, Regions Bank and BofA Securities, Inc., each as a joint arranger, and certain other lenders (as amended and restated, the “Credit Agreement”). The Credit Agreement provides for a term loan in an initial aggregate principal amount of $200 million (the “Term Loan”) and a revolving credit facility in an initial aggregate principal amount of $225 million (the “Revolving Credit Facility”). Among other things, the proceeds of the Term Loan were used to refinance indebtedness of the Company and its subsidiaries under its prior credit facility.
The Term Loan, inclusive of any incremental borrowings made in the form of a term loan, will amortize in quarterly installments commencing on September 30, 2021 in an amount (subject, in each case, to adjustments for prior mandatory and voluntary prepayments of principal) equal to: (a) 1.25% of the original principal amount of the Term Loan on September 30, 2021 and on each of the following eleven quarter-end payment dates, and (b) 1.875% of the original principal amount of the Term Loan on each of the next seven quarter-end payment dates. The annual interest rates applicable to advances will be calculated, at the Company’s option, by using either a base rate or LIBOR, in each case plus an applicable margin percentage that corresponds to the Company’s consolidated net leverage ratio. Upon the occurrence of certain triggering events relating to the end of the LIBOR reference rate, a different benchmark rate will be selected to replace LIBOR as the reference rate for interest accruing on certain advances. All outstanding advances under the Term Loan and Revolving Credit Facility are due and payable in full on June 24, 2026. Subject to various requirements, the Company generally may (and, under certain circumstances, must), prepay all or a portion of the outstanding balanceof the advances, together with accrued interest thereon, prior to their contractual maturity. The obligations of the Company and its subsidiaries under the Credit Agreement are secured by a first priority security interest in substantially all of the Company’s assets.
The entire disclosure for information about short-term and long-term debt arrangements, which includes amounts of borrowings under each line of credit, note payable, commercial paper issue, bonds indenture, debenture issue, own-share lending arrangements and any other contractual agreement to repay funds, and about the underlying arrangements, rationale for a classification as long-term, including repayment terms, interest rates, collateral provided, restrictions on use of assets and activities, whether or not in compliance with debt covenants, and other matters important to users of the financial statements, such as the effects of refinancing and noncompliance with debt covenants.
