Item 1.01. Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.
On September 9, 2005 we executed an amendment to our Revolving Credit Agreement dated September 14, 2004 with several lending financial institutions, for which LaSalle Bank National Association serves as administrative agent and co-lead arranger, Wachovia Capital Markets, LLC serves as co-lead arranger, Wachovia Bank National Association serves as co-syndication agent and National City Bank of the Midwest serves as co-syndication agent. The amendment increased the total amount available under the credit agreement to $200,000,000 from $100,000,000, including a sub-facility for letters of credit in an aggregate amount up to $50,000,000. In addition, under the amendment the lending institutions released our prior grant of a security interest in the outstanding common stock and membership interests of each of our subsidiaries. The credit agreement is now an unsecured facility.
Borrowings under the credit agreement bear interest based upon LIBOR rates, the Federal Funds Rate or the Prime Rate. Under our current capital structure, borrowings under the credit agreement bear interest at LIBOR plus 1.25%. This rate may change under differing capital structures over the life of the credit agreement. The credit agreement contains non-financial and financial covenants, including requirements of minimum fixed charge coverage ratios, minimum debt-to-EBITDA ratios and minimum tangible net worth. The credit agreement will expire on September 9, 2010 or on an earlier date in the instance of a default as defined in the credit agreement. As of September 9, 2005, under the credit agreement we had $75.0 million in borrowings outstanding and $15.0 million in letters of credit outstanding, and we were in compliance with all covenants.
