Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement
On January 24, 2019, Gibraltar Industries, Inc. (the “Company”) and its wholly owned subsidiary Gibraltar Steel Corporation of New York (“GSCNY”) as borrowers, entered into a Sixth Amended and Restated Credit Agreement with a syndicate of nine banks led by KeyBank National Association, KeyBanc Capital Markets Inc., Bank of America, N.A., Citizens Bank, N.A., Branch Banking and Trust Company, BMO Harris Bank, N.A., M&T Bank and PNC Bank, National Association (the “Sixth Amendment and Restatement”). The Sixth Amendment and Restatement amends and restates the Company’s Fifth Amended and Restated Credit Agreement dated December 9, 2015 and, in general, increases the amount of credit available to the Company and reduces the interest rate payable on borrowings.
The Sixth Amendment and Restatement provides for a revolving credit facility and letters of credit in an aggregate amount equal to $400 million. The Sixth Amendment and Restatement also provides the Company the right, upon request, to increase the amount of the credit facility to $700 million in minimum increments of $25 million. The additional $300 million in credit available to the Company may be obtained as a term loan, an increase in the amount of the revolving credit facility available to the Company or a combination of an increase in the revolving credit facility and one or more term loans. As of January 24, 2019 the Company did not have any amount outstanding under the revolving credit facility.
The Sixth Amendment and Restatement has an initial applicable interest rate equal to the London Interbank Offering Rate (“LIBOR”) plus 1.125%. Borrowings under the Sixth Amendment and Restatement bear interest, at the Company’s option, at a rate equal to an applicable margin plus (a) a base rate determined by reference to the highest of (1) the prime rate, (2) the federal funds rate plus 0.50% and (3) the one month LIBOR plus 1.0%, or (b) one, two, three or six month LIBOR. The applicable margin ranges from .0125% to 1.00% for base rate loans and from 1.125% to 2.00% for LIBOR loans based on the Company’s Total Leverage Ratio. In addition to the foregoing, the revolving credit facility is subject to an annual commitment fee calculated as an initial amount of 0.25% of the daily average undrawn balance of the revolving credit facility. The undrawn commitment fee ranges between 0.20% and 0.30% based on the Company’s Total Leverage Ratio.
In addition to covenants relating to the operations of the Company and its subsidiaries, the Sixth Amendment and Restatement contains three financial covenants which prohibit the Company from having: (i) a Senior Secured Leverage Ratio in excess of 3.50 to 1.00; (ii) a Total Leverage Ratio in excess of 4.50 to 1.00; and (iii) an Interest Coverage Ratio of less than 3.00 to 1.00 (each, as defined in the Sixth Amendment and Restatement). If a Material Acquisition Event (as defined in the Sixth Amendment and Restatement) occurs, the maximum Senior Secured Leverage Ratio and the maximum Total Leverage Ratio may, upon request of the Company and satisfaction of certain conditions, be increased for a one year period following the Material Acquisition Event to, respectively, 4.00 to 1.00 and 4.75 to 1.00.
The Sixth Amendment and Restatement provides that the maturity date for the revolving credit facility is January 23, 2024, on which date, the facility will terminate. All borrowings under the facility must be repaid on or before the maturity date.
Borrowings under the Sixth Amendment and Restatement are secured by the trade receivables, inventory, personal property, equipment and general intangibles of the Company and the Company’s significant domestic subsidiaries. The obligations of the Company and GSCNY under the Sixth Amendment Restatement are guaranteed by each of the Company’s significant domestic subsidiaries.
The Sixth Amendment and Restatement contains numerous affirmative and negative covenants and events of default which should be reviewed for a complete understanding of the Sixth Amendment and Restatement.
The forgoing description of the Sixth Amendment and Restatement does not purport to be complete, and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Sixth Amendment Restatement, a copy of which is filed as Exhibit 10.1 hereto and is incorporated herein by reference.
The Sixth Amendment and Restatement has been filed to provide investors and security holders with information regarding its terms, provisions, conditions, and covenants and is not intended to provide any other factual information
respecting the Company or its subsidiaries. In particular the Sixth Amendment and Restatement contains representations and warranties made to and solely for the benefit of the parties thereto, allocating among themselves various risks of the transaction. The assertions embodied in those representations and warranties may be qualified or modified by information in disclosure schedules that the parties have exchanged in connection with executing the Sixth Amendment and Restatement. Moreover, information concerning the subject matter of the representations and warranties may change after the date of this report, which subsequent information may or may not be fully reflected in the Company’s public disclosures. Accordingly investors and security holders should not rely on the representations and warranties in the Sixth Amendment and Restatement as characterizations of the actual state of any fact or facts.
