Long-term debt consisted of the following items as of June 30, 2021 and December 31, 2020:
Our post-emergence debt consists of the Exit Credit Facility and the Successor Senior Notes.
Exit Credit Facility
As discussed in Note 2, on the Emergence Date, pursuant to the terms of the Plan, the Company entered into the Exit Credit Agreement, which provides for (i) the Exit Facility in an aggregate principal amount of up to $1.5 billion and (ii) the First-Out Term Loan in an aggregate maximum amount of up to $180.0 million. The Exit Facility has an initial borrowing base and elected commitment amount of up to $580.0 million.
The borrowing base will be redetermined semiannually on or around May 1 and November 1 of each year. The next scheduled redetermination will be on or around November 1, 2021.
Loans drawn under the Exit Facility will not be subject to amortization, while loans drawn under the First-Out Term Loan will amortize with $15.0 million quarterly installments, commencing on the closing date and occurring every three months after the closing date. The Exit Credit Facility matures on May 17, 2024.
The Exit Facility provides for a $150.0 million sublimit of the aggregate commitments that is available for the issuance of letters of credit. The Exit Facility also includes a $40 million availability blocker that remains in place until Successful Midstream Resolution (as defined in the Exit Credit Agreement), as discussed in Note 9.
The Exit Facility bears interest at a rate equal to, at the Company’s election, either (a) LIBOR plus an applicable margin that varies from 3.00% to 4.00% per annum or (b) a base rate plus an applicable margin that varies from 2.00% to 3.00% per annum. The First-Out Term Loan Facility bears interest at a rate equal to, at Gulfport’s election, either (a) LIBOR (subject to a 1.00% floor) plus 4.50% or (b) a base rate (subject to a 2.00% floor) plus 3.50%. As of June 30, 2021, the Exit Facility and the First-Out Term Loan Facility bore interest at weighted average rates of 4.50% and 5.50%, respectively.
The Company is required to pay a commitment fee of 0.50% per annum on the average daily unused portion of the current aggregate commitments under the Exit Facility and is also required to pay customary letter of credit and fronting fees.
The Exit Credit Agreement requires the Company to maintain (i) a net funded leverage ratio of less than or equal to 3.00 to 1.00, (ii) a net senior secured leverage ratio of less than or equal to 2.00 to 1.00, and (iii) a current ratio of greater than or equal to 1.00 to 1.00.
The Exit Credit Agreement also contains customary affirmative and negative covenants, including, among other things, as to compliance with laws (including environmental laws and anti-corruption laws), delivery of quarterly and annual financial statements and borrowing base certificates, conduct of business, maintenance of property, maintenance of insurance, restrictions on the incurrence of liens, indebtedness, asset dispositions, restricted payments, and other customary covenants.
Additionally, the Exit Credit Agreement contains customary events of default and remedies for credit facilities of this nature. If the Company does not comply with the financial and other covenants in the Exit Credit Agreement, the Lenders may, subject to customary cure rights, require immediate payment of all amounts outstanding under the Exit Credit Agreement and any outstanding unfunded commitments may be terminated.
The obligations under the Exit Credit Facility are guaranteed by the Company and the Guarantors (collectively, the “Loan Parties”) and secured by substantially all of the Loan Parties’ assets (subject to customary exceptions), including mortgages on at least 85% of the PV-10 of the borrowing base properties as set forth on the reserve report.
As of June 30, 2021, the Company had $105.0 million of outstanding borrowings under the Exit Facility, $180 million outstanding borrowings under the First-Out Term Loan and $114.8 million in letters of credit outstanding.
Successor Senior Notes
As discussed in Note 2, on the Emergence Date, pursuant to the terms of the Plan, the Company issued $550 million aggregate principal amount of its 8.000% senior notes due 2026.
The Successor Senior Notes are guaranteed on a senior unsecured basis by each of the Company's subsidiaries that guarantee the Exit Credit Facility.
The Successor Senior Notes were issued under the Indentures, dated as of May 17, 2021, by and among the Issuer, UMB Bank, National Association, as trustee, and the Guarantors.
Interest on the Successor Senior Notes will be payable semi-annually, on June 1 and December 1 of each year, commencing on December 1, 2021, to holders of record on the immediately preceding May 15 or November 15. Interest on the Successor Senior Notes will accrue from the most recent date to which interest has been paid or, if no interest has been paid, from May 17, 2021. Interest will be computed on the basis of a 360-day year of twelve 30-day months.
The Successor Senior Notes are the Company’s senior unsecured obligations. Each guarantee of the Successor Senior Notes by a guarantor is a general, unsecured, senior obligation of such guarantor.
The covenants of the 1145 Indenture (other than the payment covenant) require that the Company comply with the covenants of the 4(a)(2) Indenture, as amended. The 4(a)(2) Indenture contains covenants limiting the Issuer’s and its restricted subsidiaries’ ability to (i) incur additional debt, (ii) pay dividends or distributions in respect of certain equity interests or redeem, repurchase or retire certain equity interests or subordinated indebtedness, (iii) make certain investments, (iv) create restrictions on distributions from restricted subsidiaries, (v) engage in specified sales of assets, (vi) enter into certain transactions among affiliates, (vii) engage in certain lines of business, (viii) engage in consolidations, mergers and acquisitions, (ix) create unrestricted subsidiaries and (x) incur or create liens. These covenants contain important exceptions, limitations and qualifications. At any time that the Successor Senior Notes are rated investment grade, certain covenants will be terminated and cease to apply.
Chapter 11 Proceedings - Predecessor Debt
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 stayed the creditors from taking any action as a result of the default.
The principal amounts from the Predecessor 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 sheet as of December 31, 2020.
Debtor-in-Possession Credit Agreement
Pursuant to the RSA, the Consenting RBL Lenders 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 were 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. On the Emergence Date, the DIP Facility was terminated and the lenders indefeasibly converted into the Exit Facility. Each holder of an allowed DIP Claim received, in full and final satisfaction, settlement, release, and discharge of, and in exchange for, each Allowed DIP Claim its Pro Rata share of participation in the Exit Credit Facility.
Pre-Petition Revolving Credit Facility
Prior to the Emergence Date, the Company had 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. The Pre-Petition Revolving Credit Facility had a borrowing base of $580 million. On the Emergence Date, the Pre-Petition Revolving Credit Facility was terminated and the lenders indefeasibly converted into the Exit Credit Facility. Each holder of an allowed claim under the Pre-Petition Revolving Credit Facility received, in full and final satisfaction, settlement, release, and discharge of, and in exchange for, each Allowed DIP Claim its Pro Rata share of participation in the Exit Credit Facility.
Predecessor Senior Notes
On the Emergence Date, all outstanding obligations under the Predecessor Senior Notes were cancelled in accordance with the Plan and each holder of an allowed unsecured notes claim received their pro-rata share of 19.7 million shares of New Common Stock and $550 million of the Successor Senior Notes.
Predecessor Building Loan
In June 2015, the Company entered into a loan for the construction of the Company's corporate headquarters in Oklahoma City, which was substantially completed in December 2016. On the Emergence Date, ownership of the Company's corporate headquarters reverted to the Building Loan lender and the Company entered into a short-term lease agreement for the headquarters with the lender. As a result, the building loan liability was discharged as of the Emergence Date.
Capitalization of Interest
The Company did not capitalize interest expense for the Successor Period or the Current Predecessor YTD Period related to its unevaluated oil and natural gas properties and capitalized approximately $0.5 million and $0.7 million in interest expense during the Prior Predecessor Quarter and the Prior Predecessor YTD Period, respectively.
Fair Value of Debt
At June 30, 2021, the carrying value of the outstanding debt represented by the Successor Senior Notes was $548.8 million. Based on the quoted market prices (Level 1), the fair value of the Successor Senior Notes was determined to be $592.6 million at June 30, 2021.
