Note 2 – Borrowings

The Company maintains an asset-based revolving credit facility ("Credit Facility") that provides for, among other things, a revolving commitment in an aggregate principal amount of up to $30,000, which is subject to a borrowing base derived from certain receivables, inventory, and property and equipment. At September 28, 2019, our outstanding revolving loan balance was $0. The guaranteed total letters of credit balance at September 28, 2019 was $13,520, of which $10,454 was utilized and included in accounts payable in our consolidated balance sheet.

Loans drawn under the Credit Facility bear interest, at the Company’s option, at a per annum rate equal to either (a) LIBOR plus an applicable margin of 1.75%, or (b) an “alternate prime base rate” subject to an increase or reduction by up to 0.25% per annum based on the Company’s fixed charge coverage ratio. At September 28, 2019, the Company’s LIBOR based interest rate was 3.79% (on $0 principal) and the Company’s prime based rate was 5.25% (on $0 principal). A commitment fee, based upon undrawn availability under the Credit Facility bearing interest at a rate of 0.25% per annum, is payable monthly. Under the terms of the credit agreement with JP Morgan Chase Bank (the "Credit Agreement"), cash receipts are deposited into a lock-box, which are at the Company’s discretion unless the “cash dominion period” is in effect, during which cash receipts will be used to reduce amounts owing under the Credit Agreement. The cash dominion period is triggered in an event of default or if excess availability is less than the $3,600 for three consecutive business days and will continue until, during the preceding 45 consecutive days, no event of default existed and excess availability has been greater than $3,600 at all times (with such trigger subject to adjustment based on the Company’s revolving commitment). In addition, in the event that “excess availability,” as defined under the Credit Agreement, is less than $2,400, the Company shall be required to maintain a minimum fixed charge coverage ratio of 1.0 to 1.0 (with the trigger subject to adjustment based on the Company’s revolving commitment). The Company’s excess availability was $9,820 at September 28, 2019. As of the date hereof, the cash dominion period has not been in effect; accordingly, no principal payments are due. The Credit Agreement requires us to obtain a prior written consent from JPMorgan Chase Bank when we determine to pay any dividends on or make any distribution with respect to our common stock. The credit facility matures on April 26, 2020.
