Radiant Logistics secured a $200 million syndicated secured revolving credit facility to replace its existing $150 million revolving facility. The secured facility enhances the company’s financial flexibility, providing increased capacity to fund future acquisitions, capital expenditures or for other corporate purposes, including, if warranted at the time, the repurchase of the company’s common stock.
BofA Securities acted as the book runner and joint lead arranger for the syndicated credit facility. Bank of Montreal acted as lender, joint lead arranger and syndication agent. MUFG Union Bank acted as lender and co-documentation agent. Keybank acted as lender and co-documentation agent. Bank of America and Washington Federal Bank also acted as lenders. Bank of America will also serve as administrative agent.
Under the terms of the new secured facility, the company may borrow up to $200 million, subject to compliance with customary and standard financial coverage covenants and ratios. Included within the secured facility is an accordion feature for an additional $75 million to support future acquisition opportunities. Borrowings under the secured facility accrue interest at either the lenders’ base rate plus 0.50% or SOFR plus 1.40%, and can be subsequently adjusted based on the company’s consolidated net leverage ratio, at either the lenders’ base rate plus 0.50% to 1.50% or SOFR plus 1.40% to 2.40%.
The secured facility carries a five-year term and is secured by accounts receivable and other assets of the company and its subsidiaries. For general borrowings under the secured facility, the company is subject to a maximum consolidated net leverage ratio of 3.0x and a minimum consolidated interest coverage ratio of 1.0x. Additional minimum availability requirements and financial covenants apply in the event the company seeks to use advances under the secured facility to pursue acquisitions or repurchase its common stock. Under the terms of the secured facility, as of March 31, 2022, the company had a consolidated net leverage ratio of 1.0x and a consolidated interest coverage ratio of 24.4x.
Concurrent with entering into new secured facility, the company also amended the term loans held by its Canadian lender, Fiera Private Debt Funds IV and V (formerly known as Integrated Private Debt Funds IV and V), to make the financial and other covenants therein consistent with those contained in the new secured facility. The security interest securing such term loans remain on a parity basis with those assets securing the new secured facility.
“We are very pleased to announce our new $200 million secured facility and appreciate and the strong support and confidence of our banking group,” Bohn Crain, founder and CEO of Radiant Logistics, said. “The new secured facility provides us access to additional low-cost capital and greater financial flexibility as we look to maximize long term shareholder value through a combination of organic growth and strategic acquisitions as well as opportunities to buyback of our common stock.
“We remain encouraged by our continued strong financial performance and the fact that we have now reported a record $69.5 million in adjusted EBITDA on $1.3 billion in revenues for the trailing twelve months ended March 31, 2022. It is also worth noting that we delivered these results while maintaining very low leverage on our balance sheet and believe we are very well positioned with ready access to capital to begin our push to the next billion dollar milestone.”
