|Item 1.01||Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.|
On February 11, 2011, Impax Laboratories, Inc. (the Company) entered into a Credit Agreement (the Credit Agreement) with Wells Fargo Bank, National Association, as a lender and as administrative agent (the Administrative Agent). The Credit Agreement provides the Company with a revolving line of credit in the aggregate principal amount of up to $50.0 million (the Revolving Credit Facility). Under the Revolving Credit Facility, up to $10.0 million is available for letters of credit, the outstanding face amounts of which reduce availability under the Revolving Credit Facility on a dollar for dollar basis. Proceeds under the Credit Agreement may be used for working capital, general corporate and other lawful purposes.
The Companys borrowings under the Credit Agreement are secured by substantially all of the personal property assets of the Company pursuant to a Security Agreement (the Security Agreement) entered into by the Company and the Administrative Agent. As further security, the Company also pledged to the Administrative Agent, 65% of the Companys equity interest in Impax Laboratories (Taiwan), Inc. and must similarly pledge all or a portion of its equity interest in future subsidiaries.
Under the Credit Agreement, among other things:
|||The outstanding principal amount of all revolving credit loans, together with accrued and unpaid interest thereon, will be due and payable on the maturity date, which will occur four years following the February 11, 2011 closing date.|
|||Borrowings under the Revolving Credit Facility will bear interest, at the Companys option, at either an Alternate Base Rate (as defined in the Credit Agreement) plus the applicable margin in effect from time to time ranging from 0.5% to 1.5%, or a LIBOR Rate (as defined in the Credit Agreement) plus the applicable margin in effect from time to time ranging from 1.5% to 2.5%. The Company is also required to pay an unused commitment fee ranging from 0.25% to 0.45% per annum based on the daily average undrawn portion of the Revolving Credit Facility. The applicable margin described above and the unused commitment fee in effect at any given time will be determined based on the Companys Total Net Leverage Ratio (as defined in the Credit Agreement), which is based upon the Companys consolidated total debt, net of unrestricted cash in excess of $100 million, compared to Consolidated EBITDA (as defined in the Credit Agreement) for the immediately preceding four quarters.|
|||The Company may prepay any outstanding loan under the Revolving Credit Facility without premium or penalty.|
|||The Company is required under the Credit Agreement and the Security Agreement to comply with a number of affirmative, negative and financial covenants. Among other things, these covenants (i) require the Company to provide periodic reports, notices of material events and information regarding collateral, (ii) restrict the Companys ability, subject to certain exceptions and baskets, to incur additional indebtedness, grant liens on assets, undergo fundamental changes, change the nature of its business, make investments, undertake acquisitions, sell assets, make restricted payments (including the ability to pay dividends and repurchase stock) or engage in affiliate transactions, and (iii) require the Company to maintain a Total Net Leverage Ratio (which is, generally, our total funded debt, net of unrestricted cash in excess of $100 million, over our EBITDA for the preceding four quarters) of less than 3.75 to 1.00, a Senior Secured Leverage Ratio (which is, generally, our total senior secured debt over our EBITDA for the preceding four quarters) of less than 2.50 to 1.00 and a Fixed Charge Coverage Ratio (which is, generally, our EBITDA for the preceding four quarters over the sum of cash interest expense, cash tax payments, scheduled funded debt payments and capital expenditures during such four quarter period) of at least 2.00 to 1.00 (with each such ratio as more particularly defined as set forth in the Credit Agreement).|
|||The Credit Agreement contains customary events of default (subject to customary grace periods, cure rights and materiality thresholds), including, among others, failure to pay principal, interest or fees, violation of covenants, material inaccuracy of representations and warranties, cross-default and cross-acceleration of material indebtedness and other obligations, certain bankruptcy and insolvency events, certain judgments, certain events related to the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974, as amended, and a change of control.|
|||Following an event of default under the Credit Agreement, the Administrative Agent would be entitled to take various actions, including the acceleration of amounts due under the Credit Agreement and exercise other rights and remedies available under the Credit Agreement and applicable law.|
The Company has not yet borrowed any amounts under the Revolving Credit Facility.
The foregoing description of the Credit Agreement and the Security Agreement does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Credit Agreement and the Security Agreement, each of which the Company intends to file with the Securities and Exchange Commission at a future date.
Effective as of February 11, 2011, the Revolving Credit Facility replaced our existing credit agreement, the Amended and Restated Loan and Security Agreement, dated as of December 15, 2005, as amended (the Existing Credit Agreement), between the Company and the Administrative Agent (as successor by merger to Wachovia Bank, National Association), and the commitments under the Existing Credit Agreement have been terminated. The Existing Credit Agreement was scheduled to expire on April 1, 2011.
From time to time, the Administrative Agent, and/or certain of its affiliates, have performed, and may in the future perform, various commercial banking, custody, investment banking and other financial advisory services for the Company for which they have received, and will receive, customary fees and expenses. The Administrative Agent also acted as lender under the Companys Existing Credit Agreement.
