"We are very pleased with the new arrangement we have reached with Comerica and the support and confidence this early extension of the credit facility demonstrates," said Matthew Middendorf, Arcadia's Chief Financial Officer.  "This facility finances the working capital of our Services segment and the borrowings are based on a percentage of eligible accounts receivable.  We have reduced the cost of the facility by taking the commitment down to $11 million, which is still well above our recent levels of borrowings, and in turn reduces the commitment fees payable under the agreement.  In addition to extending the existing maturity from August 2011 to April 2012, we have modified certain financial covenants to bring them in line with our current ASI requirements and have increased the amount we have agreed to maintain in a deposit account with Comerica," Middendorf continued.

Under the terms agreed with Comerica, the following changes will be made to the existing line of credit:

  • The maturity date of the facility will be changed from August 2011 to April 2012.
  • The credit commitment amount will be lowered from $14 million to $11 million, more in line with the Company's current needs.  At September 30, 2010, ASI had $8.1 million in outstanding borrowings and its total available borrowings based on eligible accounts receivable were $8.9 million.  During the past twelve months, the maximum borrowings under this facility were $9.3 million.
  • The Company is required to maintain a deposit account with a minimum balance of $1,000,000, compared to a minimum balance of $500,000 in the prior agreement.
  • The ASI tangible effective net worth and subordinated debts covenants have been modified to bring them in line with the current tangible net worth and subordinated debt levels.  

In addition to these modifications, Comerica has agreed to waive ASI's non-compliance with the previous tangible effective net worth and subordinated debt covenants as of September 30, 2010, and through the effective date of the new agreement.
