NOTE 10. LONG-TERM LIABILITIES
Long-term liabilities consisted of the following at:
Nevada State Bank (“NSB”) Credit Agreement. The Company is party to a Credit Agreement with ZB, N.A. dba Nevada State Bank (as amended, the “Credit Agreement”), which was last amended on October 14, 2019. The Credit Agreement provided for a Term Loan in the initial amount of $11,000,000 and a Revolving Loan in the amount of $1,000,000.
Under the Credit Agreement, outstanding balances accrue interest based on one-month US dollar London interbank offered rate (“LIBOR”) plus an Applicable Margin of 3.50% or 4.00%, depending on our Total Leverage Ratio (as defined in the amended Credit Agreement). Effective December 31, 2021, LIBOR will no longer serve as a reference rate for bank loans, among other investment classes. The Fourth Amendment to the Credit Agreement stipulates that an alternative reference rate will be selected and used in lieu of LIBOR.
The Credit Agreement contains affirmative and negative financial covenants and other restrictions customary for borrowings of this nature. In particular, we are required to maintain (i) a minimum trailing-four-quarters Fixed Charge Coverage Ratio (as defined in the Credit Agreement) of 1.25x; (ii) a maximum Total Leverage Ratio (as defined in the Credit Agreement) of 7.25x (with semi-annual step-downs of 0.25x every six months, commencing June 30, 2020 through December 31, 2022 (the current required Total Leverage Ratio is 7.00x) and (iii) a maximum Senior Leverage Ratio (as defined in the Credit Agreement) of 2.00x. We were in compliance with the Fixed Charge Coverage Ratio and Senior Leverage Ratio as of June 30, 2020. However, our Total Leverage Ratio exceeded the maximum threshold as of June 30, 2020. Furthermore, because the impact of the COVID-19 crisis on our trailing-four-quarters Adjusted EBITDA into 2021, we think it is likely that we will not be in compliance with one or more of the Fixed Charge Coverage Ratio, Total Leverage Ratio and Senior Leverage Ratio through the first quarter of 2021. In view of that, the Company and NSB entered into a Forbearance and Fifth Amendment to Credit Agreement dated August 14, 2020 (the “Fifth Amendment”). In the Fifth Amendment, NSB agreed to forbear from exercising any of its rights or remedies that result from the aforementioned covenant breaches during the aforementioned period. The Fifth Amendment also imposes a new Minimum EBITDA covenant pursuant to which the Company must demonstrate trailing-four-quarter EBITDA of $2.4 million for the each of the quarters ended September 30 and December 31, 2020, and $3.0 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2021, and thereafter.
On March 12, 2020, the Company drew down $1,000,000 on the Revolving Loan component of the Credit Agreement. At June 30, 2020, the principal amount outstanding under the Term Loan component of the Credit Agreement was $7,994,300, bringing the total amount outstanding under the Credit Agreement at June 30, 2020, to $8,994,300.
Paycheck Protection Program Borrowings. On April 17, 2020, the Company obtained an unsecured loan of $835,300 through Zions Bancorporation, N.A. dba Nevada State Bank under the Paycheck Protection Program pursuant to the CARES Act and the Flexibility Act. The Paycheck Protection Program is administered by the United States Small Business Administration. In accordance with the requirements of the CARES Act, the Company used proceeds from the PPP Loan primarily for payroll costs. Under the terms of the CARES and Flexibility Acts, PPP Loan recipients can apply for and be granted forgiveness for all or a portion of loans granted under the Paycheck Protection Program. Such forgiveness will be determined, subject to limitations, based on the use of loan proceeds for payroll costs and mortgage interest, rent and utility costs.
On July 16, 2020, the Company filed an application and supporting documentation for forgiveness in full of the PPP Loan. The review of the Company’s forgiveness application could take as long as five months, and there is no assurance that the PPP Loan will be forgiven in full or in any amount. The application for these funds required the Company to, in good faith, certify that the current economic uncertainty made the loan request necessary to support the ongoing operations of the Company. This certification further requires the Company to take into account our current business activity and our ability to access other sources of liquidity sufficient to support ongoing operations in a manner that is not significantly detrimental to the business. The receipt of these funds, and the pending application for forgiveness of the loan attendant to these funds, is dependent on the Company having initially qualified for the loan and qualifying for the forgiveness of such loan based on our adherence to the forgiveness criteria.
Share Redemption Consideration Obligation. On May 6, 2019, we issued a promissory note in the face amount of $39,096,401 to Triangulum in connection with the share redemption disclosed in Note 1. In the litigation that followed the share redemption (Note 11), Triangulum is disputing, among other things, the validity of the note and has not accepted its terms. Since no agreement on terms exists between the Company and Triangulum, the promissory note has not been given accounting effect in the Company’s financial statements. The Company has instead recorded a long-term obligation payable to Triangulum, based on the redemption value specified in our Articles of Incorporation. The obligation is classified as long-term because we do not expect that a final agreement with respect to the litigation will be reached between the parties in the next twelve months. We may repay the Redemption Consideration Obligation at any time but no later than May 6, 2029; however, there can be no assurance that Triangulum will accept such payments. Additional share redemption consideration is being accrued at 2% on the redemption obligation, and we paid the first annual payment on May 5, 2020 in the amount of $781,928, which was accepted by Triangulum. The share redemption consideration obligation is unsecured and is subordinated to our existing and future indebtedness.
As of June 30, 2020, future maturities of our long-term debt liabilities are as follows:
