stuart olson inc (SOX) Key Developments

Stuart Olson Inc. Announces Improved Terms and Extension of its Revolving Credit Facility

Stuart Olson Inc. announced that it has negotiated improved terms and conditions and a three year extension to its revolving credit facility. The Toronto-Dominion Bank and HSBC Bank of Canada are co-lead arrangers and joint bookrunners on the Revolver, which now consists of a $155 million credit facility syndicated by seven lenders from the existing facility and a $20 million operating facility provided by HSBC. The combination of these two facilities provides the company with maximum available borrowing capacity of $175 million, as compared to $167.4 million under the previous terms of the Revolver. The syndicated portion of the facility continues to include a $75 million accordion feature. The maturity date of the Revolver has been extended to July 16, 2020. Material changes to the Revolver include the elimination of the former working capital ratio and the senior debt to EBITDA ratio financial covenants. The revolver continues to include existing financial covenants related to interest coverage and total debt to EBITDA. The Interest coverage ratio covenant remains the same at not less than 3:1 and the debt to EBITDA ratio covenant has been reduced by 0.25 such that it shall not exceed 3:1, with a temporary increase to 3.25:1 for a period of two quarters following the completion of a material acquisition. These amendments are expected to expand the company's available borrowing capacity, if needed, to support operations, finance capital expenditures and support growth strategies. The amendments also provide the company with additional flexibility in terms of its ability to make investments and provide loans without securing approval from the syndicated lenders, by increasing the limit from $10 million to $25 million.
