LONG-TERM DEBT AND LONG-TERM OBLIGATIONS
In October 2014, TOCCO, SHR, GSPL and TC (SHR, GSPL and TC collectively the “Guarantors”) entered into an amended and restated credit agreement (as amended to the date hereof, the “ARC Agreement”), which originally provided (i) a revolving credit facility (the “Revolving Facility”) with revolving commitments of $40.0 million and (ii) term loan borrowings consisting of (A) 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 (B) a $25.0 multiple advance term loan facility for which borrowing availability ended on December 31, 2015 (collectively, the “Term Loan Facility” and, together with the Revolving Facility, the “Credit Facilities”).
On July 31, 2018, TOCCO and the Guarantors entered into a Fourth Amendment to the ARC Agreement (the “Fourth Amendment”) pursuant to which the revolving commitments under the Revolving Facility were increased to $75.0 million. Pursuant to the Fourth Amendment, total borrowings under the Term Loan Facility 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 the Acquisition loan and the multiple advance term loan facility described above. 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. As of December 31, 2019, we had $3 million in borrowings outstanding under the Revolving Facility and $80.9 million in borrowings outstanding under the Term Loan Facility. In addition, we had approximately $50 million of available borrowings under our Revolving Facility at December 31, 2019. However, TOCCO’s ability to make additional borrowings under the Revolving Credit Facility at December 31, 2019 was limited by, and in the future may be limited by our obligation to maintain compliance with the covenants contained in the ARC Agreement (including maintenance of a maximum Consolidated Leverage Ratio and minimum Consolidated Fixed Charge Coverage Ratio (each as defined in the ARC Agreement)).
The maturity date for the ARC Agreement is July 31, 2023. Subject to the lenders acceptance of any increased commitment and other conditions, we have the option, at any time, 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.
Borrowings under each of the Credit Facilities bear interest on the outstanding principal amount at a rate equal to LIBOR plus an applicable margin of 1.25% to 2.50% or, at our option, the Base Rate plus an applicable margin of 0.25% to 1.50% , in each case, with the applicable margin being determined based on the Consolidated Leverage Ratio of TOCCO. A commitment fee between 0.20% and 0.375% is also payable quarterly on the unused portion of the Revolving Facility. For 2019, the effective interest rate for the Credit Facilities was 4.56%. Borrowings under the Term Loan Facility are 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.
For the four fiscal quarters ended December 31, 2019 and each fiscal quarter thereafter, TOCCO must maintain a Consolidated Leverage Ratio of 3.50 to 1.00 (subject to temporary increase following certain acquisitions). TOCCO's Consolidated Leverage Ratio was 2.20 and 4.03 as of December 31, 2019 and 2018, respectively. Additionally, TOCCO must maintain a minimum Consolidated Fixed Charge Coverage Ratio as of the end of any fiscal quarter of 1.15 to 1.00. TOCCO's Consolidated Fixed Charge Coverage Ratio was 2.56 and 1.29 as of December 31, 2019 and 2018, respectively.
The ARC Agreement contains, among other things, other customary covenants, including restrictions on the incurrence of additional indebtedness, the granting of additional liens, the making of investments, the disposition of assets and other fundamental changes, transactions with affiliates and the declaration of dividends and other restricted payments. The ARC Agreement further includes customary representations and warranties and events of default, and upon occurrence of such events of default the outstanding obligations under the ARC Agreement may be accelerated and become immediately due and payable and the commitment of the lenders to make loans under the ARC Agreement may be terminated. We were in compliance with all covenants at December 31, 2019.
Principal payments of long-term debt for the next five years and thereafter ending December 31 are as follows:
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 operations for the year ended December 31, 2018. Unamortized debt issuance costs of approximately $0.6 million and $0.8 million for the years ended December 31, 2019 and December 31, 2018, have been netted against outstanding loan balances.
