LIABILITIES AND LONG-TERM DEBT
Senior Secured Credit Facilities. On July 31, 2018, TOCCO, as borrower, and SHR, GSPL and TC, as guarantors (collectively, the “Guarantors”), entered into a Fourth Amendment (“Fourth Amendment”) to our Amended and Restated Credit Agreement (the “ARC”). Pursuant to the Fourth Amendment, the revolving commitment under the ARC (the “Revolving Facility”) was increased from $60.0 million to $75.0 million. Total borrowings under the term loan facility of the ARC (the “Term Loan Facility” and, together with the Revolving Facility, the “Credit Facilities”) were increased to $87.5 million under a single combined term loan, which comprised new term loan borrowings together with approximately $60.4 million of previously outstanding term loans under the Term Loan Facility. The $60.4 million of previously outstanding term loans included the remaining outstanding balances on (i) a $70.0 million single advance term loan incurred to partially finance the acquisition of TC (which we refer to as the “Acquisition loan”) and (ii) a $25.0 multiple advance term loan facility for which borrowing availability ended on December 31, 2015. Proceeds of the new borrowings under the Term Loan Facility were used to repay a portion of the outstanding borrowings under the Revolving Facility and pay fees and expenses of the transaction. The Fourth Amendment also increased the size of the accordion feature allowing us to request an increase to the commitment under the Revolving Facility and/or the Term Loan Facility by an additional amount of up to $50.0 million in the aggregate, subject to the lenders acceptance of any increased commitment and certain other conditions. As of September 30, 2018, we had $20.0 million in borrowings outstanding under the Revolving Facility and $86.4 million in borrowings outstanding under the Term Loan Facility. In addition, we had $55 million of available borrowings under our Revolving Facility at September 30, 2018.
The Fourth Amendment also extended the maturity date for the ARC from October 1, 2019 to July 31, 2023 and decreased the interest rate margin applicable to borrowings under each of the Credit Facilities. Following the effective date of the Fourth Amendment, borrowings under each of the Credit Facilities bear interest on the outstanding principal amount at a rate equal to London Interbank Offered Rate ("LIBOR") plus an applicable margin of 1.25% to 2.25% (decreased from 2.00% to 3.00%) or, at our option, the Base Rate (as defined in the ARC) plus an applicable margin of 0.25% to 1.25% (decreased from 1.00% to 2.00%), in each case, with the applicable margin being determined based on the Consolidated Leverage Ratio (as defined in the ARC) of TOCCO. A commitment fee between 0.20% and 0.30% (decreased from 0.25% to 0.375%) is also payable quarterly on the unused portion of the Revolving Facility. As of September 30, 2018, the effective interest rate for the Credit Facilities was 4.24%. Borrowings under the Term Loan Facility continue to be subject to quarterly amortization payments based on a commercial style amortization method over a twenty year period; provided that the final principal installment will be paid on the maturity date and will be in an amount equal to the outstanding borrowings under the Term Loan Facility on such date.
The Fourth Amendment also modified certain covenants and other provisions of the ARC to provide us with additional flexibility, including (i) increasing the maximum Consolidated Leverage Ratio that must be maintained by TOCCO to 3.50 to 1.00 (subject to temporary increase following certain acquisitions), (ii) decreasing the minimum Consolidated Fixed Charge Coverage Ratio (as defined in the ARC) that must be maintained by TOCCO to 1.15 to 1.00 and (iii) eliminating the requirement that TOCCO maintain a minimum asset coverage ratio. Pursuant to the Fourth Amendment, we are only required to comply with the minimum Consolidated Fixed Charge Leverage Ratio covenant beginning with the quarter ended December 31, 2018. In addition to the foregoing, the Term Loan Facility contains a number of other customary affirmative and negative covenants. We were in compliance with all covenants at September 30, 2018.
Following the effectiveness of the Fourth Amendment, all obligations under the ARC continue to be unconditionally guaranteed by the Guarantors and continue to be secured by a first priority lien on substantially all of the assets of TOCCO and the Guarantors under the ARC.
For a summary of additional terms of the Credit Facilities and previous amendments, see Note 13, “Long-Term Debt and Long-Term Obligations” to the consolidated financial statements set forth in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2017.
Debt Issuance Costs. Debt issuance costs of approximately $0.9 million were incurred in connection with the Fourth Amendment and the remaining debt issuance costs of $0.3 million from the previous agreements were expensed and are shown as a loss on the extinguishment of debt on the consolidated statements of income for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2018. Unamortized debt issuance costs of approximately $0.9 million and $0.5 million for the periods ended September 30, 2018 and December 31, 2017, have been netted against outstanding loan balances.
