Bank Credit Arrangements
The Company maintains a revolving credit facility with a commercial bank in an aggregate principal amount not to exceed $200,000, which expires in October 2026. Outstanding principal amounts bear interest at a fluctuating rate tied to, at the Company’s option, either the federal funds rate or LIBOR, resulting in an effective interest rate of 3.46% and 2.22% on the revolving credit facility during the three months ended December 31, 2022 and 2021, respectively.
In light of the interest being determined on a variable rate basis, the fair value of the borrowings under the credit facility at both December 31, 2022 and September 30, 2022 approximates the $25,000 carrying value reflected in the Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets, which is consistent with a level 2 fair value measurement.
The revolving credit facility is collateralized by the business assets of the Company’s U.S. subsidiaries and requires compliance with financial covenants that limit the amount of debt obligations and require a minimum level of coverage of fixed charges, as defined in the revolving credit facility agreement. As of December 31, 2022, the Company was in compliance with all covenants.
See Note 18 for a discussion of activities related to the Company’s bank credit arrangements occurring subsequent to the December 31, 2022 Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheet date.
