Kirby Corporation Trims its Workforce

Kirby Corp. has laid off 200 workers or about 4% of its employees, as it adjusts to cope with low oil prices. The cuts were all in its land-based diesel engine services and accounted for 40% of those workers. Most of the laid-off workers were based in Oklahoma City, and there were no layoffs in other parts of the business.

Kirby Corporation Enters into a Credit Agreement

On April 30, 2015, Kirby Corporation entered into a credit agreement with a group of commercial banks that increases the borrowing limit under its previous revolving credit facility from $325 million to $550 million. The credit agreement, which has a maturity date of April 30, 2020, provides for a variable interest rate based on the London Interbank Offered Rate or a base rate calculated with reference to the agent bank's prime rate, among other factors. The interest rate spread varies with its credit rating and is currently 112.5 basis points over LIBOR or 12.5 basis points over the Base Rate. In addition, the credit agreement allows for a $300 million increase in the aggregate commitments of the banks in the form of revolving credit loans or term loans, subject to the consent of each bank that elects to participate in the increased commitment. Borrowings under the facility were used to refinance the outstanding indebtedness under its previous revolving credit agreement and term loan agreement and may also be used for general corporate purposes, including acquisitions. As of April 30, 2015, the company had outstanding borrowings under the facility of $317,331,000.
