Item 2.03   Creation of a Direct Financial Obligation or an Obligation under an Off-Balance Sheet Arrangement of a Registrant

 

On Monday, May 21, 2018, we executed a new credit agreement with PNC, as administrative agent for our lenders. The $267 million credit agreement allows for a $147 million term loan and a $120 million revolver with a maturity of May 2022.  Our current debt is $206 million. The credit facility is collateralized by substantially all of the assets of Hallador Energy Company, with its restricted subsidiaries Sunrise Coal, LLC and Summit Terminal serving as guarantors.



The interest rate on the facility ranges from LIBOR plus 3.00% to LIBOR plus 4.50%, depending on our leverage ratio. We expect the interest rate to be LIBOR plus 4% for the remainder of 2018.



The maximum leverage ratio (total funded debt / trailing 12 months EBITDA) is as follows:





 

Fiscal Periods Ending

Ratio

June 30, 2018 through March 31, 2019

3.75X

June 30, 2019 and September 30, 2019

3.50X

December 31, 2019 through September 30, 2020

3.25X

December 31, 2020 through September 30, 2021

3.00X

December 31, 2021 and each fiscal quarter thereafter

2.75X



The debt service coverage ratio (trailing 12 months EBITDA / annual debt service) requires a minimum of 1.25X through the maturity of the credit facility.



Sunrise entered into swap agreements to fix the LIBOR component of the interest rate on 100% of the outstanding loan balances. We estimate the effective fixed rate to be approximately 6.5% over the life of the loan.



The credit agreement also imposes certain other customary restrictions and covenants as well as certain milestones we must meet in order to draw down the full amount, including a maximum annual capex of $30 millionThe term loan requires annual amortization during the four years, beginning June 2018, at 15%, 20%, 25%, 25%, with a balloon at maturity.



A copy of the credit agreement will be filed as an exhibit to our Form 10-Q for the quarter ended June 30, 2018.

Hallador Energy Secures New $267MM Credit Facility Through 2022





DENVER, May 21, 2018 -- Hallador Energy Company (NASDAQ: HNRG)  entered into a  new $267 million credit agreement today, with PNC Bank as the administrative agent, extending the term of the agreement through May 2022.



The $267 million facility is comprised of a $147 million term loan and a  $120 million revolver.   In addition to extending the term of the facility, the loan substantially reduces debt service requirements and moves the loan from the Sunrise Coal level to the Hallador level, allowing for investments in Hourglass Sands as opportunities arise.



“We are happy to put our credit needs to bed for the next four years, and will continue our intense focus on debt reduction.    Since the original credit facility was established in August 2014, we have paid down $144 million of debt,” said Brent Bilsland, President, CEO & Chairman of Hallador Energy Company.



Hallador is headquartered in Denver, Colorado and through its wholly owned subsidiary, Sunrise Coal, LLC, produces coal in the Illinois Basin for the electric power generation industry. To learn more about Hallador or Sunrise, visit our website at www.halladorenergy.com.
