Line of Credit
Prior to May 11, 2018, the Company maintained a $20 million revolving credit facility with Bankwell Bank (“Bankwell”). The Bankwell credit facility was secured by substantially all the Company’s assets. Interest on the amounts outstanding accrued at a rate equal to the greater of (x) 5.5% and (y) the three-month LIBOR Rate plus 4.50%. At May 11, 2018 the outstanding balance under the Bankwell credit facility was $18,512,470 and was accruing interest at the rate of 6.79% per annum.
Effective May 11, 2018 (the “Closing Date”), the Company entered into a Credit and Security Agreement with Webster Business Credit Corporation (“WBCC”), Bankwell Bank and Berkshire Bank (collectively, the “Lenders”) regarding a new $35 million revolving credit facility (the “Webster Facility”) to replace the Bankwell credit facility. The Webster Facility was secured by a first priority lien on all the Company’s assets, including its mortgage loan portfolio. Interest on the outstanding balance accrued at a rate equal to the 30-day LIBOR rate plus 4.00% per annum. All amounts outstanding under the Webster Facility, including principal, accrued interest and other fees and charges, were to be due and payable May 11, 2022.
On June 25, 2019, the entire outstanding balance on the Webster Facility, including principal, accrued but unpaid interest and other fees, in the aggregate amount of $19.8 million, was paid in full and the Webster Facility was terminated. In connection with the termination of the Webster Facility, the Company expensed non-recurring charges of $779,641, of which $439,446 constituted the write-off of non-cash deferred financing costs.
Effective March 29, 2019, the Company refinanced a $310,000 mortgage loan it obtained from Bankwell in February 2017 with a new mortgage loan from Bankwell Bank in the principal amount of $795,000 bearing interest at the rate of 5.06% per annum and maturing on March 31, 2029 (the “New Bankwell Mortgage Loan”). Beginning May 2019, principal and interest on the New Bankwell Mortgage Loan is payable, in arrears, in monthly installments of $4,710. The New Bankwell Mortgage Loan is secured by a first mortgage lien on the property located at 698 Main Street, Branford, Connecticut, which, since March 2019, serves as the Company’s principal place of business.
