Revolving Credit and Term LoanAgreement
On October 31, 2011, in connection with the acquisition of SEC, we entered into an Amended and Restated Revolving Credit, Term Loan and Security Agreement, dated October 31, 2011 ("Amended Loan Agreement"), with PNC, replacing our previous Loan Agreement with PNC. The Amended Loan Agreement provides us with the following credit facilities:
The Amended Loan Agreement terminates as of October 31, 2016, unless sooner terminated.
We have the option of paying an annual rate of interest due on the revolving credit facility at prime plus 2% or London Inter Bank Offer Rate ("LIBOR") plus 3% and the term loan and equipment credit facilities at prime plus 2.5% or LIBOR plus 3.5%.
As a condition of the Amended Loan Agreement, we paid the remaining balance due under the term loan under our previous Loan Agreement totaling approximately $3,833,000 using our credit facilities under the Amended Loan Agreement. In connection with the Amended Loan Agreement, we paid PNC a fee of $217,500 and incurred other direct costs of approximately $289,000 (of which $24,000 was incurred during the first quarter of 2012), which are being amortized over the term of the Amended Loan Agreement as interest expense - financing fees. As a result of the termination of the original Loan Agreement with PNC, we recorded approximately $91,000 during the fourth quarter of 2011, in loss on extinguishment of debt in accordance with ASC 470-50, "Debt - Modifications and Extinguishments". As of March 31, 2012, the excess availability under our revolving credit was $15,056,000 based on our eligible receivables.
Pursuant to the Amended Loan Agreement, we may terminate the Amended Loan Agreement upon 90 days' prior written notice upon payment in full of our obligations under the Amended Loan Agreement. We agreed to pay PNC 1.0% of the total financing in the event we pay off our obligations on or before October 31, 2012 and 1/2% of the total financing if we pays off our obligations after October 31, 2012 but prior to or on October 31, 2013. No early termination fee shall apply if we pay off our obligations under the Amended Loan Agreement after October 31, 2013.
Promissory Notes and Installment Agreements
The Company has a promissory note dated May 8, 2009, with William N. Lampson and Diehl Rettig (collectively, the "Lenders") for $3,000,000. The Lenders were formerly shareholders of Nuvotec USA, Inc. ("Nuovtec") (n/k/a Perma-Fix Northwest, Inc. ("PFNW")) prior to our acquisition of PFNW and Pacific EcoSolution, Inc. ("PEcoS") (n/k/a Perma-Fix Northwest Richland, Inc. ("PFNWR")) and are also stockholders of the Company, having received shares of our Common Stock in connection with our acquisition of PFNW and PFNWR. The promissory note provided for monthly principal repayment of approximately $87,000 plus accrued interest, starting June 8, 2009, with interest payable at LIBOR plus 4.5%, with LIBOR at least 1.5%. Any unpaid principal balance along with accrued interest was due May 8, 2011. We paid approximately $22,000 in closing costs on the promissory note which was being amortized over the term of the note. The promissory note may be prepaid at any time by the Company without penalty. As consideration of the Company receiving this loan, we issued a Warrant to Mr. Lampson and a Warrant to Mr. Diehl to purchase up to 135,000 and 15,000 shares, respectively, of the Company's Common Stock at an exercise price of $1.50 per share. The Warrants were exercisable six months from May 8, 2009 and were to expire on May 8, 2011. We also issued an aggregate of 200,000 shares of the Company's Common Stock, with Mr. Lampson receiving 180,000 shares and Mr. Rettig receiving 20,000 shares of the Company's Common Stock. The fair value of the Common Stock and Warrants on the date of issuance was estimated to be $476,000 and $190,000, respectively. The fair value of the Common Stock and Warrants was recorded as a debt discount and was being amortized over the term of the loan as interest expense - financing fees. On April 18, 2011, we entered into an amendment to the promissory note whereby the remaining principal balance on the promissory note of approximately $990,000 is to be repaid in twelve monthly principal payments of approximately $82,500 plus accrued interest, starting May 8, 2011, with interest payable at the same rate of the original loan. As consideration of the amended loan, the original Warrants issued to Mr. Lampson and to Mr. Rettig which were to expire on May 8, 2011, were extended to May 8, 2012 at the same exercise price (Mr. Rettig is now deceased; accordingly, the amended Warrant and the remaining portion of the note payable to Mr. Rettig is now held by and payable to his personal representative or estate). Also, as previously disclosed, Mr. Robert Ferguson, a member of our Board of Directors acquired one-half of Mr. Lampson's Warrant during 2011 to purchase up to 65,000 shares of the Company's Common Stock. We accounted for the amended loan as a modification in accordance with ASC 470-50, "Debt - Modifications and Extinguishments". At the date of the loan modification, unamortized debt discount and fees on the original loan and the fair value of the modified Warrants were determined to be approximately $42,000, which is being amortized as a debt discount over the term of the modified loan as interest expense-financing fees in accordance to ASC 470-50.
The promissory note also includes an embedded Put Option ("Put") that can be exercised upon default, whereby the lender has the option to receive a cash payment equal to the amount of the unpaid principal balance plus all accrued and unpaid interest, or the number of whole shares of our Common Stock equal to the outstanding principal balance. The maximum number of payoff shares is restricted to less than 19.9% of the outstanding equity. We concluded that the Put should have been bifurcated at inception; however, the Put Option had and continues to have nominal value as of March 31, 2012. We will continue to monitor the fair value of the Put until expiration.
In connection with the acquisition of SEC, we entered into a $2,500,000 unsecured, non-negotiable promissory note (the "Note") on October 31, 2011, bearing an annual rate of interest of 6%, payable in 36 monthly installments, with Homeland. The Note provides that we have the right to prepay such at any time without interest or penalty. We prepaid $500,000 of the principal amount of the Note within 10 days of closing of the acquisition. The Note is subject to offset of amounts Homeland owes us under certain terms and provisions of the Purchase Agreement and the Note. Our monthly payments consist of approximately $76,000 (which includes interest) starting November 15, 2011. As a result of the $500,000 prepayment, the final payment of approximately $15,500 will be due on March 15, 2014.
The promissory note payable to SEC also includes an embedded conversion option ("Conversion Option") that can be exercised upon default, whereby Homeland has the option to convert the unpaid portion of the Note into a number of whole shares of our restricted Common Stock. The number of shares of our restricted Common Stock to be issuable under the Conversion Option is determined by the principal amount owing under the Note at the time of default plus all accrued and unpaid interest divided by the average of the closing prices per share of our Common Stock as reported by the primary national securities exchange on which our Common Stock is traded during the 30 consecutive trading day period ending on the trading day immediately prior to receipt by us of Homeland's written notice of its election to receive our Common Stock as a result of the event of default by us, with the number of shares of our Common Stock issuable upon such default subject to certain limitations. We concluded that the Conversion Option had and continues to have nominal value as of March 31, 2012. We will continue to monitor the fair value of the Conversion Option on a regular basis.
On September 28, 2010, the Company entered into a promissory note in the principal amount of $1,322,000, with the former shareholders of Nuvotec in connection with an earn-out amount that we are required to pay upon meeting certain conditions for each earn-out measurement year ending June 30, 2008 to June 30, 2011, as a result of our acquisition of PFNW and PFNWR. Interest is accrued at an annual interest rate of 6%. The promissory note provides for 36 equal monthly payments of approximately $40,000, consisting of interest and principal, starting October 15, 2010. The promissory note may be prepaid at any time without penalty. See further details of the earn-out amount in "Note 9 - Commitments and Contingencies - Earn-Out Amount."
