The outstanding principal balance of the term loan shall bear interest at a fixed rate of 1.28 percent (1.28%). Commencing on September 30, 2021, the Company must make principal payments of $1,250,000 on the last day of March, June, September and December in each year, with a final payment of principal and interest then outstanding being due and payable on May 14, 2024.

On June 30, 2021, the Company borrowed $100 million pursuant to the term loan. As of June 30, 2021, the Company was in compliance with all applicable financial covenants under the Credit Agreement.

The foregoing descriptions of the Credit Agreement and Amendment do not purport to be complete and are subject to, and qualified in their entirety by, the full text of the Credit Agreement and the Amendment. The Amendment will be filed as an exhibit to the Company’s Form 10-Q for the quarter ended June 30, 2021.
