8.Credit Facility:


On January 4, 2013, the Company entered into a $10,000,000 revolving credit facility (the “Credit Facility”) with Citibank, N.A. (“Citibank”) pursuant to a Business Loan Agreement (the “Loan Agreement”), Promissory Note (the “Note”), Commercial Security Agreements (the “Security Agreements”) and Commercial Pledge Agreement (the “Pledge Agreement”).  The Credit Facility matures on January 31, 2019, at which time the Company must pay this loan in one payment of any outstanding principal plus all accrued unpaid interest. The interest rate for any borrowings under the Credit Facility is subject to change from time to time based on the changes in an independent index which is the LIBOR Rate (the “Index”).  If the Index becomes unavailable during the term of this loan, Citibank may designate a substitute index after notifying the Company.  Interest on the unpaid principal balance of the Note will be calculated using a rate of 1.500 percentage points over the Index.  The Credit Facility is secured by the assets of the Company.


Among other affirmative covenants set forth in the Loan Agreement, the Company must maintain (i) a ratio of Total Liabilities to Tangible Net Worth (each as defined in the Loan Agreement) of not greater than 2.50 to 1.00, to be tested quarterly and (ii) a minimum Debt Service Coverage Ratio (as defined in the Loan Agreement) of 2.00 to 1.00.  Additionally, the Loan Agreement contains negative covenants related to, among other items, prohibitions against the creation of certain liens, engaging in any business activities substantially different than those currently engaged in by the Company, and paying dividends on the Company’s stock other than (i) dividends payable in its stock and (ii) cash dividends in amounts and frequency consistent with past practice, without first securing the written consent of Citibank. The Company is in compliance with all covenants at March 31, 2017.


At March 31, 2017, the Company had no borrowings outstanding under the Credit Facility.
