6) Long-term Debt and Notes Payable

In connection with the funding of the acquisition of ATS, the Company amended its existing credit facility by entering into Amendment No 2. to Third Amended and Restated Credit Agreement, dated as of February 28, 2014. The Company elected to exercise its option to increase the revolving credit commitment. The Credit Agreement now provides for a $125 million five-year revolving credit facility maturing on June 30, 2018, of which $58.0 million was drawn to finance the acquisition. There remains approximately $56.1 million available under the revolving credit facility on March 29, 2014, net of outstanding letters of credit. The credit facility allocates up to $20 million of the $125 million revolving credit line for the issuance of letters of credit, including certain existing letters of credit. At March 29, 2014, outstanding letters of credit totaled $10.9 million. In addition, the Company is required to pay a commitment fee quarterly at a rate of between 0.25% and 0.50% per annum on the unused portion of the total revolving credit commitment, based on the Company’s Leverage Ratio.

There is $185.3 million outstanding under the term loan under the Credit Agreement and such term loan continues to mature on June 30, 2018.

The amended facility temporarily increases the maximum leverage ratio permitted under the agreement to 4.0 to 1.0 for fiscal quarters ending March 29, 2014 and June 28, 2014, 3.75 to 1.0 as of the end of fiscal quarters from September 30, 2014 through March 31, 2015 and 3.5 to 1.0 as of the end of each fiscal quarter subsequent to March 31, 2015 to maturity. There were no changes to the other covenants, interest rates being charged or commitment fees.
