(the Merger) pursuant to the Agreement and Plan of Merger (the Merger Agreement), dated as of March 14, 2011, by and among the Company, Buffalo Acquisition, Inc. (Merger Sub) and Lextron, Inc. (Lextron). Concurrent with the closing of the Merger, the Company terminated its (i) Second Amended and Restated Credit Agreement, dated October 2007, by and among Walco International, Inc., each of the credit parties party thereto, each of the financial institutions party thereto, JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A., as administrative agent for the Lenders and General Electric Capital Corporation as documentation agent for the lenders, as amended through November 10, 2010 (the Credit Agreement) and (ii) Term Loan Credit Agreement, dated November 10, 2010, by and among Walco International, Inc., each of the credit parties party thereto and JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A., as administrative agent for the lenders (the Term Loan Credit Agreement and together with the Credit Agreement, the Credit Agreements). The Credit Agreement provided for a revolving credit facility of $130.0 million bearing interest at rates based upon the Companys Leverage Ratio as defined in the Credit Agreement with LIBOR-based rates ranging from LIBOR and CDOR Rate plus 2.25% to LIBOR and CDOR Rate plus 3.00%, and with Prime-based rates ranging from U.S. Prime and Canadian Prime Rate plus 0.00% to U.S. Prime and Canadian Prime Rate plus 0.50%. The Term Loan Credit Agreement provided for a $43.0 million term loan bearing interest at an annual rate equal to 14.25% payable as follows: (a) 12.25% per annum in cash in arrears, and (b) 2.00% added automatically to the unpaid principal amount. The Term Loan Credit Agreement was issued with an original issue discount of 2% of the face amount of the note. The Credit Agreements contained certain covenants that, among other things, restricted our ability to incur additional indebtedness, make certain payments, sell assets, enter into certain transactions with affiliates and create liens. Moreover, certain of these agreements required us to maintain specified financial ratios. The most restrictive covenant related to the creation or assumption of additional indebtedness. In connection with the Merger, all amounts outstanding under the Credit Agreements were paid off and no amounts remain outstanding thereunder.
