|LONG-TERM DEBT||LONG-TERM DEBT
Long-term debt consisted of the following items as of March 31, 2021 and December 31, 2020:
Chapter 11 Proceedings
Filing of the Chapter 11 Cases constituted an event of default with respect to certain of our secured and unsecured debt obligations. As a result of the Chapter 11 Cases, the principal and interest due under these debt instruments became immediately due and payable. However, Section 362 of the Bankruptcy Code stays the creditors from taking any action as a result of the default.
The principal amounts from the Senior Notes, Building Loan and Pre-Petition Revolving Credit Facility, other than letters of credit drawn on the Pre-Petition Revolving Credit Facility after the Petition Date, have been classified as liabilities subject to compromise on the accompanying consolidated balance sheets as of March 31, 2021 and December 31, 2020.
Debtor-in-Possession Credit Agreement
Pursuant to the RSA, the Consenting RBL Lenders have agreed to provide the Company with a senior secured superpriority debtor-in-possession revolving credit facility in an aggregate principal amount of $262.5 million consisting of (a) $105 million of new money and (b) $157.5 million to roll up a portion of the existing outstanding obligations under the Pre-Petition Revolving Credit Facility. The terms and conditions of the DIP Credit Facility are set forth in that certain form of credit agreement governing the DIP Credit Facility. The proceeds of the DIP Credit Facility may be used for, among other things, post-petition working capital, permitted capital investments, general corporate purposes, letters of credit, administrative costs, premiums, expenses and fees for the transactions contemplated by the Chapter 11 Cases and payment of court approved adequate protection obligations. The DIP Credit Facility was approved by the Bankruptcy Court on a final basis on December 18, 2020. As of March 31, 2021, $157.5 million was outstanding under the DIP Credit Facility and the total availability for future borrowings under this facility, after giving effect to an aggregate of $28.5 million letters of credit, was $76.5 million.
Borrowings under the DIP Credit Facility will mature, and the lending commitments thereunder will terminate, upon the earliest to occur of: (a) August 30, 2021; (b) three (3) business days after the Petition Date, if the Interim Order and Hedging Order have not been entered prior to the expiration of such period; (c) thirty five (35) days (or a later date consented to by the Administrative Agent and the Majority Lenders in their sole discretion) after the entry of the Interim Order, if the Bankruptcy Court has not entered the Final Order on or prior to such date; (d) the effective date of an Approved Plan of Reorganization, (e)
the consummation of a sale of all or substantially all of the equity and/or assets of the Debtors and budgeted and necessary expenses of the estates; (f) the date of the payment in full, in cash, of all Obligations (and the termination of all Commitments in accordance with the terms hereof); and (g) the date of termination of all Commitments and/or the acceleration of all of the Obligations under the Agreement and the other Loan Documents following the occurrence and during the continuance of an Event of Default.
Borrowings under the DIP Credit Facility bear interest at a eurodollar rate or base rate, at our election, plus an applicable margin of 4.50% per annum for eurodollar loans and 3.50% per annum for base rate loans. At March 31, 2021, amounts borrowed under the DIP credit facility bore interest at a weighted average rate of 5.50%. In addition to paying interest on outstanding principal and letters of credit posted under the DIP Credit Facility, we are required to pay a commitment fee of 0.50% per annum to the lenders of the DIP Credit Facility in respect of the unutilized DIP commitments thereunder and a letter of credit fee equal to 0.20% per annum.
The DIP Credit Facility includes negative covenants that, subject to significant exceptions, limit the Company's ability and the ability of its restricted subsidiaries to, among other things, (i) create liens on assets, property revenues, (ii) make investments, (iii) incur additional indebtedness, (iv) engage in mergers, consolidations, liquidations and dissolutions, (v) sell assets, (vi) pay dividends and distributions or repurchase capital stock, (vii) cease for any reason to be the operator of its properties, (viii) enter into letters of credit without prior written consent, (ix) enter into certain commodity hedging contracts except commodity hedging contracts with terms approved by the Bankruptcy Court in the hedging order or certain interest rate contracts, (x) change lines of business, (xi) engage in certain transactions with affiliates and (xii) incur more than a certain amount in capital expenditures in any calendar month. The DIP Credit Facility includes certain customary representations and warranties, affirmative covenants and events of default, including but not limited to defaults on account of nonpayment, breaches of representations and warranties and covenants, certain bankruptcy-related events, certain events under ERISA, material judgments and a change in control. If an event of default occurs, the lenders under the DIP Credit Facility will be entitled to take various actions, including the acceleration of all amounts due under the DIP Credit Facility and all actions permitted to be taken under the loan documents or application of law. In addition, the DIP Credit Facility is subject to various other financial performance covenants, including compliance with certain financial metrics and adherence to a budget approved by the Company's DIP Credit Facility lenders.
Pre-Petition Revolving Credit Facility
The Company has entered into a senior secured revolving credit facility agreement, as amended, with The Bank of Nova Scotia, as the lead arranger and administrative agent and certain lenders from time to time party thereto. On October 8, 2020, the Company's borrowing base under its Pre-Petition Revolving Credit Facility was reduced from $700 million to $580 million, thereby significantly reducing the Company's available liquidity. On October 15, 2020, the Company elected to not pay interest on certain Senior Notes outstanding triggering a default under the credit agreement. There was $316.8 million of outstanding borrowings under the Pre-Petition Revolving Credit Facility as of March 31, 2021 that were not rolled up into the DIP Credit Facility. This amount of indebtedness will remain outstanding throughout the Chapter 11 Cases and will continue to accrue interest at the default interest rate on amounts drawn after the Petition Date. The Company made certain adequate protection payments of $2.2 million on its Pre-Petition Revolving Credit Facility during the three months ended March 31, 2021 which reduced the amount of outstanding borrowings under the Pre-Petition Revolving Credit Facility classified as liabilities subject to compromise as of March 31, 2021 in the accompanying consolidated balance sheets.
During the first quarter of 2021, $26.1 million was drawn on letters of credit secured by the Company's Pre-Petition Revolving Credit Facility by certain of its firm transportation contract counterparties. As these were post-petition activities, these letters of credit drawn are included in current portion of long-term debt in the accompanying consolidated balance sheets. At March 31, 2021 the Company included $99.1 million in prepaid and other current assets in the accompanying consolidated balance sheets as an offset for the drawn letters of credit. A portion of the drawn letters of credit were netted against accounts payable to the Company's firm transportation contract counterparties.
Additionally, as of March 31, 2021, the Company had an aggregate of $121.2 million of letters of credit outstanding and no availability for future borrowings under its Pre-Petition Revolving Credit Facility. This facility is secured by substantially all of the Company's assets. All of the Company's wholly-owned subsidiaries, excluding Grizzly Holdings and Mule Sky, guarantee our obligations under our revolving credit facility.
At March 31, 2021, amounts borrowed under the revolving credit facility bore interest at a weighted average rate of 3.12%.
Capitalization of Interest
The Company did not capitalize interest expense for the three months ended March 31, 2021 and capitalized approximately $0.2 million in interest expense related to its unevaluated oil and natural gas properties during the three months ended March 31, 2020.
Fair Value of Debt
At March 31, 2021, the carrying value of the outstanding debt represented by the Notes was approximately $1.8 billion. Based on the quoted market prices (Level 1), the fair value of the Notes was determined to be approximately $1.6 billion at March 31, 2021.
