Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.
On December 31, 2012, The Monarch Cement Company ("Company") entered into a new credit agreement dated December 31, 2012 with its current lender, BOKF, NA dba Bank of Oklahoma, which agreement amended and restated its existing credit agreement.
The new agreement provides for a secured credit commitment consisting of a $10.0 million advancing term loan maturing December 31, 2015, a $10.0 million term loan maturing December 31, 2017, and a $15.0 million revolving loan maturing December 31, 2015. Interest rates on the Company's advancing term loan and revolving loan are both variable and based on the the rate of interest regularly published by the Wall Street Journal and designated as the U.S. Prime Rate (hereto referred to as the WSJ prime rate) less 1.50% with a 1.50% interest rate minimum or floor. Interest rates on the Company's term loan are variable and based on the WSJ prime rate less 1.25% with a 1.75% interest rate minimum or floor.
The new agreement requires the Company to pledge its investment account, receivable accounts and inventory to BOKF, NA dba Bank of Oklahoma as collateral for the advancing term loan, the term loan and revolving loan. The Company is obligated to maintain at least $12.0 million in its pledged investment account. The agreement also contains a financial covenant requiring the Company, as of the end of any fiscal quarter, to maintain a minimum tangible net worth before other comprehensive income of $95.0 million and a minimum tangible net worth after other comprehensive income of $85.0 million.
