Senior Credit Facility
In March 2019, the Company entered into a senior credit facility (the “Senior Credit Facility”) with a syndicate of banks, to among other things, (i) expand the multi-currency revolving line of credit from $300 million to $400 million, (ii) extend the maturity of the Company's Senior Credit Facility from May 2020 to March 2024 (no required principal payments prior to maturity) and (iii) modify certain other provisions of the credit agreement including a reduction in pricing. The Senior Credit Facility was initially comprised of a $400 million revolving line of credit and a $200 million term loan.
At November 30, 2021, there was $175.0 million of borrowings under the revolving line of credit and $219.8 million of available borrowing capacity under the revolving line of credit after reduction for $5.2 million of outstanding letters of credit issued under the Senior Credit Facility.
The Senior Credit Facility also provides the option for future expansion, subject to certain conditions, through a $300 million accordion and/or a $200 million incremental term loan. Borrowings under the Senior Credit Facility bear interest at a variable rate based on LIBOR or a base rate, ranging from 1.125% to 2.00% in the case of loans bearing interest at LIBOR and from 0.125% to 1.00% in the case of loans bearing interest at the base rate. In addition, a non-use fee is payable quarterly on the average unused amount of the revolving line of credit ranging from 0.15% to 0.3% per annum, based on the Company's net leverage.
The Senior Credit Facility contains two financial covenants, which are a maximum leverage ratio of 3.75:1 and a minimum interest coverage ratio of 3.5:1. Certain transactions lead to adjustments to the underlying ratios, including an increase to the leverage ratio from 3.75 to 4.25 during the four fiscal quarters after a significant acquisition.The Company was in compliance with all financial covenants at November 30, 2021. Borrowings under the Senior Credit Facility are secured by substantially all personal property assets of the Company and its domestic subsidiary guarantors and certain equity interests owned by the foreign law pledgors.
