First Lien Term Loan
Senior Credit Facility
Unamortized deferred financing costs

(1) The Senior Notes bear interest at a fixed rate. The variable interest rate on the First Lien Term Loan and Senior Credit Facility was 5.5% and 9.5%, respectively, as of December 31, 2020.
On March 15, 2021, the Company completed a private offering by its wholly-owned subsidiary, CPI CG Inc. (the “Issuer”), of $310,000 aggregate principal amount of 8.625% senior secured notes due 2026 (the “Senior Notes”) and related guarantees. The notes and related guarantees were offered and sold in a private transaction exempt from the registration requirements of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), to persons reasonably believed to be qualified institutional buyers in accordance with Rule 144A under the Securities Act and outside the United States to certain non-U.S. persons in compliance with Regulation S under the Securities Act. In addition, the Company and CPI CG Inc. as borrower entered into a credit agreement with Wells Fargo Bank, National Association, as lender, administrative agent and collateral agent, providing for an asset-based, senior secured revolving credit facility of up to $50,000 (the “ABL Revolver”).
In connection with the issuance of the Senior Notes and entry into the ABL Revolver, the Company terminated its existing credit facilities consisting of a $30,000 senior credit agreement, dated as of March 6, 2020, among the Company, CPI CG Inc., as borrower, the lenders party thereto and Guggenheim Credit Services, LLC as administrative agent and collateral agent (the “Senior Credit Facility”), and a $435,000 first lien term loan, dated as of August 17, 2015 as amended, among the Company, the borrower, the lenders party thereto, GLAS USA LLC, as administrative agent and GLAS Americas LLC, as collateral agent (the “First Lien Term Loan”).
Net proceeds from the Senior Notes, together with cash on hand and initial borrowings of $15,000 under the ABL Revolver, were used to pay in full and terminate the Senior Credit Facility and First Lien Term Loan on March 15, 2021, and to pay related fees and expenses. As of March 15, 2021, the Company had outstanding borrowings of $30,000, plus accrued and unpaid interest, under the Senior Credit Facility, and $304,746, plus accrued and unpaid interest, under the First Lien Term Loan. In addition, early termination of the Senior Credit Facility required payment of a “make-whole” premium of $2,635 as an early termination penalty, which was paid on March 15, 2021, and recorded as
interest expense on the condensed consolidated statement of comprehensive income for the six months ended June 30, 2021.
During the second quarter of 2021, the Company used $15,000 of cash on hand to pay down the ABL Revolver to zero and had no borrowings outstanding thereunder as of June 30, 2021.
The Senior Notes bear interest at a rate of 8.625% per annum and mature on March 15, 2026. Interest is payable on the Senior Notes on March 15 and September 15 of each year, beginning on September 15, 2021. The ABL Revolver matures on the earliest to occur of March 15, 2026 and the date that is 90 days prior to the maturity of the Senior Notes. Borrowings under the ABL Revolver bear interest at a rate per annum that ranges from the LIBOR Rate plus 1.25% to the LIBOR Rate plus 1.75%, or the Base Rate plus 0.25% to the Base Rate plus 0.75%, based on the average daily borrowing capacity under the ABL Revolver over the most recently completed month. The Company may elect to apply either the LIBOR Rate or Base Rate interest to borrowings at its discretion. The unused portion of the ABL Revolver commitment accrues a commitment fee, which ranges from 0.375% to 0.50% per annum, based on the average daily borrowing capacity under the ABL Revolver over the immediately preceding month.
The Senior Notes are guaranteed by the Company and certain of its current and future wholly-owned domestic subsidiaries (other than the Issuer) that guarantee the ABL Revolver, and are secured by substantially all of the assets of the Issuer and the guarantors, subject to customary exceptions. The ABL Revolver is guaranteed by the Company and its subsidiaries (other than the Issuer and excluded subsidiaries), and is secured by substantially all of the assets of the Issuer and the guarantors, subject to customary exceptions.
The Senior Notes and the ABL Revolver contain covenants limiting the ability of the Company, the Issuer and the Company’s restricted subsidiaries to, among other things, incur or guarantee additional debt or issue disqualified stock or certain preferred stock; create or incur liens; pay dividends, redeem stock or make other distributions; make certain investments; create restrictions on the ability of the Issuer and its restricted subsidiaries to pay dividends to the Company or make other intercompany transfers; transfer or sell assets; merge or consolidate; and enter into certain transactions with affiliates, subject to a number of important exceptions and qualifications as set forth in the respective agreements.
The Company may have obligations to make an offer to repay the Senior Notes, requiring prepayment in advance of the maturity date, upon the occurrence of certain events including a change of control, certain asset sales and based on an annual excess cash flow calculation. The annual excess cash flow calculation is determined pursuant to the terms of that certain Indenture, dated as of March 15, 2021, by and among Issuer, the Company, the subsidiary guarantors and U.S. Bank National Association, as trustee, with any required prepayments to be made after the issuance of the Company’s annual financial statements.
As of December 31, 2020, $8,027 of debt principal was classified as a current liability as a result of an excess free cash flow calculation for 2020 pursuant to the terms of the Senior Credit Facility and the First Lien Term Loan. The Company offered to prepay the balance, pursuant to the terms of the Senior Credit Facility and the First Lien Term Loan, which resulted in a required principal prepayment of $7,754 to the First Lien Term Loan lenders on March 4, 2021, plus accrued interest thereon.
Deferred Financing Costs and Discount
Certain costs and discounts incurred with borrowings or the establishment or modification of credit facilities are reflected as a reduction to the long-term debt balance. These costs are amortized as an adjustment to interest expense over the life of the borrowing using the effective-interest rate method. The debt issuance costs recorded on the Senior Notes were $7,558 and are reported as a reduction to the long-term debt balance as of June 30, 2021. The net discount and debt issuance costs on the ABL Revolver were $2,144 and are recorded as other assets (current and long term) on the condensed consolidated balance sheet as of June 30, 2021.
During the six months ended June 30, 2021, the Company recorded a $5,048 loss on debt extinguishment relating to the unamortized deferred financing costs and debt discount in connection with the termination of the Senior Credit Facility and First Lien Term Loan.
