On February 5, 2021, the Company entered into a Credit Agreement (the “2021 Credit Agreement”) with JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A., as administrative agent (the “Agent”), sole bookrunner and sole lead arranger, and the lenders party thereto. The borrowers under the 2021 Credit Agreement are the Company, InfuSystem Holdings USA, Inc. (“Holdings”), InfuSystem, Inc. (“ISI”), First Biomedical, Inc. (“First Biomedical”), and IFC LLC (“IFC” and, collectively with the Company, Holdings, ISI and First Biomedical, the “Borrowers”).
The 2021 Credit Agreement provides for a revolving credit facility (the “Revolving Facility”) of $75 million, maturing on February 5, 2026. The Revolving Facility may be increased by $25 million, subject to certain conditions, including the consent of the Agent and obtaining necessary commitments. The lenders under the 2021 Credit Agreement may issue up to $7 million in letters of credit subject to the satisfaction of certain conditions. On February 5, 2021, the Borrowers made an initial borrowing of $30 million under the Revolving Facility. Proceeds from the loan, along with approximately $8.2 million in cash, were used to repay all amounts due under the Company’s then existing credit facility dated March 23, 2015 (the “2015 Credit Agreement”).
Amounts outstanding under the Revolving Facility bear interest at a variable rate equal to, at the Company’s election, a LIBO Rate for Eurodollar loans or an Alternate Base Rate for ABR loans, as defined by the 2021 Credit Agreement, plus a spread that will vary depending upon the Company’s leverage ratio. The spread ranges from 2.00% to 3.00% for Eurodollar Loans and 1.00% to 2.00% for base rate loans. The initial spread under the 2021 Credit Agreement is 2.00% for Eurodollar loans and 1.00% for ABR loans.
The 2021 Credit Agreement has customary representations and warranties, and the ability to borrow under the facility is subject to ongoing compliance with a number of customary affirmative and negative covenants, including limitations on indebtedness, liens, mergers, acquisitions, investments, asset sales, affiliate transactions and restricted payments, as well as financial covenants, including the following:
The 2021 Credit Agreement includes customary events of default, and the occurrence of an event of default will permit the lenders to terminate commitments to lend under the Revolving Facility and accelerate payment of all amounts outstanding thereunder.
Simultaneous with the execution of the 2021 Credit Agreement, the Company entered into a Pledge and Security Agreement to secure repayment of the obligations of the Borrowers. Under the Pledge and Security Agreement, each Borrower has granted to the Agent, for the benefit of various secured parties, a first priority security interest in substantially all of the personal property assets of each of the Borrowers, including the shares of each of Holdings, ISI and First Biomedical and the equity interests of IFC.
On February 5, 2021, in connection with the execution and closing of the 2021 Credit Agreement, the Company, along with its wholly owned subsidiaries as borrowers, terminated the 2015 Credit Agreement. All outstanding loans under the 2015 Credit Agreement have been repaid and all liens under the 2015 Credit Agreement have been released, except that a letter of credit originally issued under the 2015 Credit Agreement in the amount of approximately $0.8 million was transferred to the 2021 Credit Agreement.
At December 31, 2020, the 2015 Credit Agreement, which would have matured on November 9, 2024, included three term notes totaling $37.9 million, with varying required quarterly amortization payments, and an undrawn $11.8 million revolving line of credit. The availability under the line of credit was reduced by outstanding letters of credit and reserves totaling $1.0 million and was subject to a borrowing base limitation as defined by the agreement. The borrowing base was approximately $15.6 million at December 31, 2020. At December 31, 2020 and on the date of the refinancing, the Company was in compliance with all affirmative and negative covenants, as outlined in the agreement, which included maintenance of a maximum leverage ratio and a minimum fixed charge coverage ratio, as defined in the agreement. Interest on the facility was payable at the Company’s option as a (i) Eurodollar Loan, which bore interest at a per annum rate equal to the applicable 30-day LIBOR plus an applicable margin ranging from 2.00% to 3.00% or (ii) CB Floating Rate (“CBFR”) Loan, which bore interest at a per annum rate equal to the greater of (a) the lender’s prime rate or (b) LIBOR plus 2.50%, in each case, plus a margin ranging from -1.00% to 0.25% based on our leverage ratio. The actual Eurodollar Loan rate at December 31, 2020 was 2.19% (LIBOR of 0.19% plus 2.00%). The actual CBFR Loan rate at December 31, 2020 was 2.25% (lender’s prime rate of 3.25% minus 1.00%).
The 2021 Credit Agreement was accounted for as a debt modification. As of March 31, 2021, the Company was in compliance with all debt-related covenants under the 2021 Credit Agreement.
On April 15, 2019, the Company sold for $2.0 million and immediately leased back certain medical equipment in rental service to a third party specializing in such transactions. The leaseback term is 36 months. Because the arrangement contains a purchase option that the Company is reasonably certain to exercise, this transaction did not qualify for the sale-leaseback accounting under ASC 842. The medical equipment remains recorded on the accompanying condensed consolidated balance sheet and the proceeds received have been classified as an Other Financing liability, which is being paid off monthly over the term of the lease. The balance of Other Financing as of March 31, 2021 was $0.8 million.
As referenced above, the Company executed and closed the 2021 Credit Agreement during the first quarter of 2021, and in connection with entering into that agreement, terminated the 2015 Credit Agreement. For the following tables, the figures related to the March 31, 2021 revolving credit facility balances relate to the 2021 Credit Agreement, while the December 31, 2020 revolving credit facility balances relate to the now terminated 2015 Credit Agreement. The following table illustrates the net availability under the revolving credit facilities as of the applicable balance sheet date (in thousands):

The following is a breakdown of the Company’s current and long-term debt (in thousands):
As of March 31, 2021, amounts outstanding under the Revolving Facility bear interest at a variable rate equal to, at the Company’s election, a LIBO Rate for Eurodollar loans or an Alternative Base Rate for ABR loans, as defined by the 2021 Credit Agreement, plus a spread that will vary depending upon the Company’s leverage ratio. The spread ranges from 2.00% to 3.00% for Eurodollar Loans and 1.00% to 2.00% for base rate loans. The actual Eurodollar loan rate at March 31, 2021 was 2.11% (LIBO of 0.11% plus 2.00%). The actual ABR loan rate at March 31, 2021 was 4.25% (lender’s prime rate of 3.25% plus 1.00%).
