|12 Months Ended|
Sep. 30, 2011
On May 13, 2011, the Company, certain of the Company’s wholly owned subsidiaries (collectively with the Company, the “Borrowers”), and Everest Group LLC (“Lender”) entered into a Loan Agreement (the “Loan Agreement”), pursuant to which the Lender agreed to loan the Borrowers an aggregate amount not to exceed $1,000,000 (the “Loan”). The Loan was funded to the Borrowers on May 16, 2011. The Borrowers used the proceeds of the Loan for working capital and other general corporate purposes.
The Loan Agreement provides for a one-year term, unless terminated earlier pursuant to its terms or extended upon the mutual agreement of all parties. Subject to applicable law, the Borrowers will pay an annual interest rate equal to 18% on the unpaid principal balance of the Loan. Interest will be payable monthly in arrears on the first day of each calendar month (unless such day is not a business day, in which case interest will be payable on the next succeeding business day) commencing June 1, 2011. Commencing on November 1, 2011, and on the first day of each subsequent calendar month, the Borrowers will be required to make $50,000 monthly installment payments of principal on the Loan, with the unpaid principal balance to be due and payable on the termination date of the Loan.
Pursuant to a General Security Agreement (the “Security Agreement”) also entered into on May 13, 2011, and as a condition to closing the Loan and the other transactions contemplated by the Loan Agreement, the Borrowers granted to Lender a security interest in certain of their assets, including (without limitation) their accounts receivable, books, tort claims, deposit accounts, equipment, general intangibles, inventory, investment property, negotiable collateral, property and the proceeds thereof. Certain Borrowers, including the Company, also entered into agreements with Lender and their banking institutions to grant Lender certain rights and remedies with respect to their deposit accounts.
The Loan Agreement contains representations, warranties and covenants of the parties that are customary for transactions similar to the Loan. These include:
The Loan Agreement defines certain events of default, including (among other things) (i) the Borrowers’ failure to make any payment required under the Loan Agreement when due (subject to a five-business-day cure period), (ii) the Borrowers’ failure to comply with their covenants and agreements under the Loan Agreement and other Loan documents and (iii) the occurrence of a change of control with respect to the Company. Upon an event of default, Lender would be entitled to immediately accelerate all amounts due and payable in respect of the Loan and a cash default fee of $20,000. Prepayment may not occur in full or in part without the consent of Lender within the first six months of the term. After November 1, 2011, upon the payment to Lender of a prepayment fee equal to the present values of prospective payments of interest without the prepayment of the Loan, the Borrowers may prepay all or any portion of the unpaid principal amount of the Loan prior to the termination date.
In connection with closing the Loan, the Borrowers paid Lender a $20,000 cash origination fee and also reimbursed Lender for $20,000 in closing costs, including attorneys’ fees and other out-of-pocket expenses related to the negotiation of the Loan Agreement. Both the cash origination fee and the closing costs were expensed in the third fiscal quarter of 2011.
The entire disclosure for long-term debt.
