Long-term Debt, Unclassified [Abstract]  

Effective August 1, 2011, the Company entered into a credit and security agreement in the U.S. with Fifth Third Bank (the “Bank”). The agreement initially provided for three separate credit facilities totaling $50,000. As noted below, at September 26, 2015, two of the original facilities remained available.
Facility A is a $15,000 unsecured revolving line of credit and requires monthly payments of interest. Facility A has a floating interest rate of 1.45% over the 30-day LIBOR Rate (as defined).
Facility B is an accordion feature to increase the revolving line of credit to a $35,000 secured revolving line of credit. Facility B will be secured by the Company’s U.S. assets, including its manufacturing facilities, and requires monthly payments of interest. Facility B will bear interest at the 30-day LIBOR Rate or the Bank’s Base Rate (as defined), at the Company’s discretion, plus a margin based on the Borrower’s Funded Debt to EBITDA Leverage Ratio (as defined). The LIBOR Margin ranges from 1.45% to 2.25% and the Bank’s Base Rate ranges from (0.25)% to 0.00%.
Facility C is a $15,000 construction and term loan. The Company did not activate Facility C for the construction of its new Sarasota factory and access to this facility has expired.
Facility A or Facility B (if activated) is payable in full on August 1, 2016. Maturity may be accelerated by the Bank upon an Event of Default (as defined). Prepayment may be made without penalty or premium at any time upon the required notice to the Bank.
Facility A is subject to debt covenants (capitalized terms are defined therein) including: 1) Minimum Tangible Net Worth of not less than $92,000, increased annually by 50% of Net Income, and 2) Minimum EBITDA of not less than $5,000; and requires the Company to maintain its primary domestic deposit accounts with the bank. At September 26, 2015, the Company was in compliance with all debt covenants related to Facility A as follows:
Required Ratio/Amount
Actual Ratio/Amount
Minimum Tangible Net Worth

Minimum EBITDA
Not less than $5 million

If Facility B is activated, covenant 2 above will automatically terminate and two additional covenants will be required: 1) Funded Debt to EBITDA ratio equal to or less than 3.0:1.0, and 2) EBIT to Interest Expense ratio of not less than 2.5:1.0. As of September 26, 2015, the Company had not activated Facility B.
The Company did not have any amounts drawn on Facilities A, B, or C for the periods ended September 26, 2015, and September 27, 2014.
