Maturities of long-term debt and capital lease obligations as of December 30, 2018 are as follows (in thousands):
On June 30, 2016, the Company replaced its existing credit facility with a new credit facility (the “New Credit Facility”) with the same group of lenders which provided for a $400 million revolving line of credit with a sublimit for the issuance of up to $25 million in letters of credit and swingline loans up to $15 million, and included an option to increase the amount available under the credit facility up to an additional $100 million in the aggregate, subject to the lenders’ participation.
The New Credit Facility also provides a Canadian Dollar borrowing sublimit equivalent to $20 million. Borrowings under the New Credit Facility, if denominated in U.S. Dollars, are subject to rates based on the London Interbank Offered Rate (“LIBOR”) plus a spread based on leverage or a base rate plus a spread based on leverage (base rate is the highest of (a) the Prime Rate, (b) the Federal Funds Rate plus 0.50%, and (c) LIBOR for an Interest Period of one month plus 1%). Borrowings under the New Credit Facility, if denominated in Canadian Dollars, are subject to rates based on LIBOR plus a spread based on leverage or a base rate plus a spread based on leverage (base rate is the highest of (a) the Canadian Prime Rate and (b) the Canadian Dealer Offered Rate (“CDOR Rate”) for an interest period of one month plus 1%). On April 13, 2017, the Company entered into a first amendment (the “Amendment”) to the New Credit Facility. The Amendment increased the lease adjusted leverage ratio to 5.25x through October 1, 2017 before stepping down to 5.0x through July 15, 2018 and returning to 4.75x thereafter. The Amendment also provides for additional pricing tiers that increase LIBOR spread rates and commitment fees to the extent the Company’s lease adjusted leverage ratio exceeds 4.75x, in addition to revising terms for permitted acquisitions and investments under the New Credit Facility. The Amendment was effective through October 7, 2018.
The New Credit Facility matures on June 30, 2021. Borrowings under the New Credit Facility are secured by first priority liens and security interests in substantially all of the Company’s assets, including the capital stock of certain Company subsidiaries, and are available for financing activities including restaurant construction costs, working capital and general corporate purposes, including, among other uses, to refinance certain indebtedness, permitted acquisitions, and redemption of capital stock. As of December 30, 2018, the Company had outstanding borrowings under the New Credit Facility of $192.5 million, in addition to amounts issued under letters of credit of $7.8 million, which reduced the amount available under the credit facility but were not recorded as debt.
Loan origination costs associated with the New Credit Facility were $1.1 million and are included as deferred costs in Other assets, net in the accompanying consolidated balance sheets, except for the current portion of these costs which is included in Prepaid expenses and other current assets. In the first quarter of 2017, the Company recorded an additional $0.7 million in debt issuance costs related to the Amendment to the New Credit Facility. Unamortized debt issuance costs were $1.7 million and $2.4 million as of December 30, 2018 and December 31, 2017.
The Company is subject to a number of customary covenants under its New Credit Facility, including limitations on additional borrowings, acquisitions, capital expenditures, share repurchases, lease commitments, dividend payments, and requirements to maintain certain financial ratios. The Company was in compliance with such covenants as of December 30, 2018.
