On September 27, 2013, the Company ("Borrower") entered into agreements with ACF FINCO I LP (successor-in-interest to Keltic Financial Partners II, LP) ("ACF") ("Lender"), that provides the Company with long term financing through a six million dollar ($6,000,000) secured revolving note (the "Note"). The Note has a term of three years and has no amortization prior to maturity. The interest rate for the Note is a fluctuating rate that, when annualized, is equal to the greatest of (A) the Prime Rate plus three and one quarter percent (3.25%), (B) the LIBOR Rate plus six and one quarter percent (6.25%), and (C) six and one half percent (6.50%), with the interest paid on a monthly basis. At March 31, 2016 and 2015 the interest rate was 6.5%. Loan advances pursuant to the Note are based on the accounts receivable balance and other assets. The Company incurred certain cash expense and commitment fees related to obtaining the agreement of approximately $170,000, which has been paid. The Note is secured by all of the Company's property and assets, whether real or personal, tangible or intangible, and whether now owned or hereafter acquired, or in which it now has or at any time in the future may acquire any right, title or interests. On January 1, 2016 the Company entered into an eighth Amendment and Waiver to the Loan and Security Agreement with ACF to increase the maximum amount of revolving credit under the Amended Credit Agreement from $6,000,000 to $10,000,000 and adjust the future covenants as outlined below and update the overall document to reflect changes to the business. The Company has entered into other Amendments with ACF that did not materially change the terms of the Note. As of the date of this report, the Company was in compliance with all such covenants or had received waivers related thereto. The Company has several administrative covenants and the following financial covenant:


The Company must maintain the following EBITDA:


  (a) The three (3) consecutive calendar month period ending on December 31, 2015, to be a number greater than negative Two Hundred Twenty Five Thousand and 00/100 Dollars (-$225,000);

  (c) The nine (9) consecutive calendar month period ending on June 30, 2016, to be no less than Two Million Sixty-five Thousand and 00/100 Dollars ($2,065,000);
  (d) The twelve (12) consecutive calendar month period ending on September 30, 2016, to be no less than Three Million Two Hundred Forty-one Thousand and 00/100 Dollars ($3,241,000); and
  (e) For any period commencing on or after October 1, 2016, no less than such amounts as are established by Lender for such period in Lender's permitted discretion based on the annual financial projections including such period delivered by Borrower.
