Pending Acquisition

On February 4, 2015, the Company entered into an Agreement and Plan of Merger (the “Merger Agreement”) to acquire CLP Towne Inc. (“Towne”). Upon completion of the Merger, Towne will be an indirect, wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company. The acquisition is expected to close in the first quarter of 2015, subject to the satisfaction of closing conditions, including among others the continuing accuracy of representations and warranties, compliance with covenants and agreements in the Merger Agreement and the execution of restrictive covenants agreements by certain equity holders.

The Company will pay aggregate cash consideration of approximately $125,000. The purchase price may be increased or reduced based upon Towne’s net working capital as of the closing date. The Merger Agreement also provides that $16,500 of the $125,000 purchase price will be placed into an escrow account, with $2,000 of such amount being available to settle any shortfall in Towne’s net working capital and with $14,500 of such amount being available for a period of time to settle certain possible claims against Towne’s common stockholders for indemnification. To the extent the escrow fund is insufficient, certain equity holders have agreed to indemnify the Company, subject to certain limitations set forth in the Merger Agreement, as a result of inaccuracies in or breaches of certain of Towne’s representations, warranties, covenants and agreements and other matters. The Company intends to finance the Merger with borrowings under its credit facility.
New Credit Facility

On February 4, 2015, the Company entered into a five-year senior, unsecured credit facility (the “Facility”) with a maximum aggregate principal amount of $275,000, including a revolving credit facility of $150,000 with a sublimit of $25,000 for letters of credit and a sublimit of $15,000 for swing line loans. The Facility also includes a term loan facility of $125,000, which is available for ninety (90) days following closing, and which, if drawn, is payable in quarterly installments of 11.1% of the original principal amount of the term loan plus accrued and unpaid interest, and which matures in March 2017. The revolving credit facility is scheduled to expire in February 2020 and may be used to refinance existing indebtedness of the Company and for working capital, capital expenditures and other general corporate purposes. The Facility replaced the Company’s prior existing $150,000 unsecured revolving credit facility. Unless the Company elects otherwise under the credit agreement, interest on borrowings under the Facility are based on the highest of (a) the federal funds rate plus 0.5%, (b) the administrative agent's prime rate and (c) the LIBOR Rate plus 1.0%, in each case plus a margin that can range from 0.1% to 0.6% with respect to the term loan facility and from 0.3% to 0.8% with respect to the revolving credit facility depending on the Company’s ratio of consolidated funded indebtedness to earnings as set forth in the credit agreement. The Facility contains financial covenants and other covenants that, among other things, restrict the ability of the Company, without the approval of the lenders, to engage in certain mergers, consolidations, asset sales, investments, transactions or to incur liens or indebtedness, as set forth in the credit agreement.
