Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.
On April 29, 2022, we entered into a Fifth Amendment (the "Amendment") to the Credit Agreement dated as of November 16, 2016, as amended (the “Credit Facility”) with U.S. Bank National Association (the “Bank”). The Amendment extends the maturity date of the Credit Facility and the related Revolving Note dated as of November 16, 2016, as amended, with the Bank from November 15, 2022 to April 29, 2025 and modifies certain terms and financial covenants of the Credit Facility. The Amendment did not change the $35.0 million revolving amount of the Credit Facility, including up to $20.0 million for commercial and standby letters of credit, nor did the Amendment change the security interest held by the bank over certain assets.
As of April 29, 2022, there were no borrowings outstanding under the Credit Facility, and the balance of letters of credit outstanding was approximately $4.7 million.
The foregoing description of the Amendment is qualified in its entirety by reference to such document, a copy of which is filed as Exhibit 10.1 to this Report and incorporated herein by reference.
