|Debt Disclosure [Abstract]|
On November 18, 2015, we entered into a Credit Agreement with a group of banks, which provides for a term loan of $82.5 million and a revolving credit facility with a maximum borrowing of $82.5 million. Our Credit Agreement matures on November 18, 2020. The Credit Agreement is secured by substantially all of our assets. In connection with entering into the Credit Agreement, we incurred approximately $1.8 million in debt issuance costs which were recorded as debt discount and are being accreted as interest expense over the life of the Credit Agreement. Interest expense associated with debt issuance costs was approximately $373,000 in each of the years ended December 31, 2019 and 2018.
As of December 31, 2019 our outstanding debt under the Credit Agreement, gross of debt issuance costs, was approximately $50.5 million under our term loan. In December 2017, we repaid all of our revolving credit facility outstanding debt of $62.0 million. Because we have a letter of credit totaling approximately $60,000 relating to a facility lease, we have approximately $82.4 million of available and unused borrowings under the revolving credit facility as of December 31, 2019.
Borrowings under the term loan are payable in quarterly installments which began on December 31, 2015. We pay interest on our Credit Agreement equal to the LIBOR plus an applicable margin, between 1.25% and 2.00%, based upon certain financial measures. As of December 31, 2019, our applicable margin was 1.25% and the interest rate on our outstanding loan was approximately 3.05%. We are subject to certain customary quarterly financial covenants under our Credit Agreement such as a maximum total leverage ratio and a minimum fixed charge coverage ratio. As of December 31, 2019, we were in compliance with the covenants of the Credit Agreement.
The Credit Agreement includes negative covenants, subject to exceptions, restricting or limiting our ability to among other things, incur additional indebtedness, grant liens, repurchase stock, pay dividends and engage in certain investment, acquisition and disposition transactions. The Credit Agreement imposes certain requirements in order for us to make dividend payments. As of December 31, 2019, such requirements were: (1) our Consolidated Total Leverage Ratio, as defined in the Credit Agreement, must be less than 2.50 to 1.00; (2) our Fixed Charge Coverage Ratio, as defined in the Credit Agreement, must be greater than 1.25 to 1.00; and (3) our Liquidity as defined in the Credit Agreement must be greater than $20 million. As of December 31, 2019, our Consolidated Total Leverage Ratio was 0.31 to 1.00, our Fixed Charge Coverage Ratio was 2.07 to 1.00 and our Liquidity was approximately $239 million. Based on our actual financial condition and results of operations, we do not believe that the provisions of the Credit Agreement currently represent a restriction to our ability to pay dividends in permissible amounts.
The contractual maturities of our debt obligations due subsequent to December 31, 2019 are as follows (in thousands):
Immediately following the acquisition of MetaPack, we repaid in full MetaPack's existing revolving credit facility balance of approximately $12.7 million.
