Under the Amendment, amounts outstanding under the revolving facility will bear annual interest at a floating rate equal to (x) LIBOR plus (y) a margin ranging from 1.75% to 2.50% (currently, 2.00%) and under the term loans will bear annual interest at a floating rate equal to (x) LIBOR plus (y) a margin ranging from 1.95% to 2.65%.(currently 1.95% for the 5-year term loan and 2.15% for the 7-year term loan). Payments under the Credit Agreement are interest only, with the full amount of the principal due at maturity. The Credit Agreement may be prepaid at any time, without penalty.

On March 29, 2018, the Company borrowed the remaining $40 million, under its available term loans, in equal amounts of 5 and 7-year maturities. Also, on March 29, 2018, the Company entered into interest rate swap agreements that fixed the interest rates on the term loans, resulting in fixed interest rates under the term loans ranging from 4.579% to 4.6255% depending on the maturity, the Company’s leverage, and other factors.

The amounts borrowed under the Company's term loans were to a delayed draw feature available in the Credit Agreement, dated as of March 29, 2017, by and among the Company and the several banks and financial institutions. The 5-year term loan facility matures in March 2022 and the 7-year term loan facility matures in March 2024.
