|Debt Disclosure [Abstract]|
Debt consisted of the following:
Agreements with Cargill Financial
In September 2021, the Company and Cargill Financial entered into (a) a credit agreement (the "Original Senior Credit Agreement") for an up to $150.0 million multiple-advance term loan (the "Senior Facility") and (b) a subordinated credit agreement (the "Original Subordinated Credit Agreement" and, together with the Original Senior Credit Agreement, the "Original Credit Agreements") for an up to $50.0 million multiple-advance subordinated term loan (the "Subordinated Facility" and, together with the Senior Facility, the "Original Facilities").
First Amendment of the Original Credit Agreements
On March 14, 2022, the Company entered into an amendment to the Original Credit Agreements (the "First Amendment") to amend the Original Credit Agreements and the Original Facilities (as amended, the "Amended Facilities"), subject to and effective upon closing the Pete’s acquisition. On April 4, 2022, the First Amendment became effective whereby (a) the Pete’s Acquisition was funded pursuant to the Amended Facilities, (b) the aggregate commitment amount of the Original Facilities was reduced to $170.0 million, (c) the minimum liquidity covenant was
reduced from $30.0 million to $20.0 million (inclusive of existing restricted cash on the Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets) and (d) the interest rate of each of the Senior Facility and the Subordinated Facility increased by 2%, among other matters. Pursuant to the First Amendment, in connection with the closing of the Pete's Acquisition, the Company (i) paid a $2.0 million amendment fee and (ii) issued 1,932,931 shares of common stock to Cargill Financial. The First Amendment was accounted for as a modification to a line of credit. Accordingly, the Company wrote off unamortized debt issuance costs in proportion to the decrease in borrowing capacity of the Original Credit Agreements of $735 thousand. The write-off amount was recorded as interest expense in the Unaudited Consolidated Statement of Operations for the three and six months ended June 30, 2022. The First Amendment fee of $2.0 million and the issued 1,932,931 shares of common stock with a fair value at the time of issuance of $17.4 million was recorded as additional debt discount and is amortized to interest expense over the remaining term of the Amended Facilities agreement on a straightline basis.
The interest rate on the Subordinated Facility subsequent to the First Amendment is 12.5% per annum, with accrued interest on the agreement paid quarterly in arrears on the last business day of each calendar quarter, commencing the last business day of the calendar quarter ended December 31, 2021, and on the maturity date of September 3, 2028.
The interest rate on the Senior Facility subsequent to the First Amendment is equal to SOFR plus a margin (which varies between 7.5% to 8.5% depending on the Senior Facility net leverage ratio). The maturity date of the Senior Facility and the Subordinated Facility is September 3, 2028.
Second Amendment of the Original Credit Agreements
On August 11, 2022, the Company, along with certain subsidiaries of the Company, entered into a second amendment to the Amended Facilities (the "Second Amendment") with Cargill Financial to amend the Amended Facilities. The Second Amendment provides that, until the earliest to occur of (x) the occurrence of any event of default, (y) the effective date of a qualified equity financing and (z) March 31, 2024, (a) the requirement for the minimum interest amount for the Senior Facility and the Subordinated Facility is reduced to an amount equal to the greater of (i) $0 and (ii) the sum of all interest payments due and payable under the Senior Facility and the Subordinated Facility in respect of term loans outstanding for a period of four calendar quarters (equal to $9.1 million and $5.2 million for the Senior Facility and the Subordinated Facility, respectively, as of June 30, 2022).
In effect, the Second Amendment reduces the minimum interest amount from the sum of all interest payments due and payable under the Senior Facility and the Subordinated Facility for a period of eight calendar quarters down to a period of four calendar quarters, as described above. This reduced the amount of restricted cash by approximately $7.2 million, effective as of June 30, 2022.
The Amended Facilities have an unused revolving line commitment fee in an amount of 125 basis points per annum of the unused portion of the Amended Facilities.
As part of the Amended Facilities, the Company is required to have an interest reserve account which is shown as restricted cash and cash equivalents on the Company's Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets. In accordance with the Second Amendment, the balance of the Company's interest reserve account was $18,583 at June 30, 2022 as compared to $4,416 at December 31, 2021. The Amended Facilities also require the Company to be in compliance with certain financial covenants, including specified debt coverage, net leverage, and interest coverage ratios. Additional covenants and other restrictions exist that limit the Company’s ability, among other things, to undergo a merger or consolidation, sell certain assets, create liens, guarantee certain obligations of third parties, make certain investments or acquisitions, and declare dividends or make distributions. In accordance with the Amended Facilities, budgets and timelines for CEA facilities also have to be approved by Cargill Financial and the Company is required to report ongoing CEA facility construction costs. The credit facility is secured with a first-priority lien against substantially all of the assets of the Company, including its intellectual property. The Company was in compliance with all applicable covenants as of June 30, 2022.
