Debt Disclosure [Abstract]  
Debt Debt
Since 2017, the Company and each of its subsidiaries have been parties to a credit agreement with certain lenders party from time to time thereto (as amended and restated, the “Credit Agreement”). The Credit Agreement has been amended and restated on multiple occasions since its inception in order to provide for changes in the economic terms of the credit facility and developments at the Company. The Credit Agreement provides for a credit facility consisting of a term loan (the “Term Loan”) and a revolving credit facility (the “Revolving Credit Facility”). 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.
In June 2021, the Credit Agreement was amended and restated to provide for a Term Loan in an initial aggregate principal amount of $200 million and a Revolving Credit Facility in an initial aggregate principal amount of $225 million. Among other things, the proceeds of the Term Loan were used to refinance indebtedness of the Company that was outstanding immediately prior to the restatement. 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 balance of the advances, together with accrued interest thereon, prior to their contractual maturity.
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 March 31, 2022 and September 30, 2021 consisted of the following (in thousands):
