|Long-term Debt||LONG-TERM DEBT
Long-term debt consisted of the following items as of December 31:
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 audited consolidated balance sheet as of December 31, 2020. Additionally, non-cash adjustments were made to write off all of the related unamortized debt issuance costs of $22.0 million, which are included in reorganization items, net in the accompanying audited consolidated statements of operations for the year ended December 31, 2020, as discussed in Note 2.
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. In the current period, the Company incurred $3.0 million of fees related to the arrangement and funding of the DIP Credit Facility. The DIP Credit Facility was approved by the Bankruptcy Court on a final basis on December 18, 2020.
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 December 31, 2020, 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 May 1, 2020, the Company entered into the fifteenth amendment to the Amended and Restated Credit Agreement. As part of the amendment, the Company's borrowing base and elected commitment were reduced from $1.2 billion and $1.0 billion, respectively, to $700.0 million. Additionally, the amendment added a requirement to maintain a ratio of Net Secured Debt to EBITDAX (as defined under the revolving credit agreement) not exceeding 2.00 to 1.00, deferred the requirement to maintain a ratio of Net Funded Debt to EBITDAX of 4.00 to 1.00 until September 30, 2021, and added a limitation on the repurchase of unsecured notes, among other amendments.
On July 27, 2020, the Company entered into the sixteenth amendment to the Amended and Restated Credit Agreement. Among other changes, the Sixteenth Amendment amends the Credit Agreement to: (i) require that, in the event of any issuances of Senior Notes, including Second Lien Notes, after the effective date, the then effective borrowing base will be reduced by a variable amount prescribed in the Credit Agreement to the extent the proceeds are not used to satisfy previously issued senior notes within 90 days of such issuance; (ii) require that each Loan Notice specify the amount of the then effective Borrowing Base and Pro Forma Borrowing Base, the Aggregate Elected Commitment Amount, and the current Total Outstandings, both with and without regard to the requested Borrowing; (iii) permit the Borrower or any Restricted Subsidiary to enter into obligations in connection with a Permitted Bond Hedge Transaction or Permitted Warrant Transaction; (iv) permit the Borrower to make any payments of Senior Notes and Subordinated Obligation prior to their scheduled maturity, in any event not to exceed $750 million or, if lesser, the net cash proceeds of any Senior Notes issued within 90 days before such payment; (v) require that the Senior Notes have a stated maturity date of no earlier than March 13, 2024, as well as not require payment of principal prior to such date, in order for the Borrower to be permitted to secure indebtedness under the Senior Notes; (vi) permit certain additional liens securing obligations in respect of the incurrence or issuance of any Permitted Refinancing Notes (as such term is defined in the Credit Agreement) not to exceed $750 million, subject to the terms of an intercreditor agreement; and (vii) amend and restate the Applicable Rate Grid.
On October 8, 2020, the Company's borrowing base under its Pre-Petition Revolving Credit Facility was reduced for the second time in 2020 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 $292.9 million of outstanding borrowings under the Pre-Petition Revolving Credit Facility as of December 31, 2020 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 $1.3 million on its Pre-Petition Revolving Credit Facility between the Petition Date and December 31, 2020 which reduced the amount of outstanding borrowings under the Pre-Petition Revolving Credit Facility classified as liabilities subject to compromise as of December 31, 2020 in the accompanying consolidated balance sheets.
Additionally, as of December 31, 2020, we had an aggregate of $147.5 million of letters of credit outstanding under our Pre-Petition Revolving Credit Facility. This facility is secured by substantially all of our assets. All of our wholly-owned subsidiaries, excluding Grizzly Holdings and Mule Sky, guarantee our obligations under our revolving credit facility.
During the fourth quarter of 2020, $171.8 million was drawn on letters of credit secured by the Company's Pre-Petition Revolving Credit Facility by its firm transportation providers. Of these drawn letters of credit, $96.2 million were drawn after the Petition Date. As these were post-petition activities, the post-petition letters of credit drawn are included in current portion of long-term debt, in the accompanying consolidated balance sheets. The pre-petition amounts are included in borrowings outstanding as of December 31, 2020 which are included in liabilities subject to compromise in the accompanying consolidated balance sheets. At December 31, 2020 the Company included $111.8 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 pre-petition accounts payable to the Company's firm transportation providers and another portion was charged to reorganization items, net in the accompanying consolidated statements of operations.
As of December 31, 2020, amounts borrowed under the Pre-Petition Revolving Credit Facility bore interest at the weighted average rate of 3.15%.
Senior Unsecured Notes
Loan issuance costs related to the Senior Notes have been presented as a reduction to the principal amount of the Senior Notes at December 31, 2019. At December 31, 2020, there were no remaining unamortized loan issuance costs related to the Senior Notes. The Company expensed approximately $22.0 million in unamortized loan issuance costs related to the Senior Notes to reorganization items, net as a result of the Chapter 11 filing and the application of ASC 852.
In June 2015, the Company entered into a loan for the construction of its corporate headquarters in Oklahoma City, which was substantially completed in December 2016. Interest accrues daily on the outstanding principal balance at a fixed rate of 4.50% per annum. The building loan matures on June 4, 2025. As of December 31, 2020, the total borrowings under the building loan were approximately $21.9 million, which has been classified as liabilities subject to compromise in the accompanying consolidated balance sheets as of December 31, 2020.
In July of 2019, the Company's Board of Directors authorized $100 million of cash to be used to repurchase its Senior Notes in the open market at discounted values to par. In December 2019, the Company's Board of Directors increased the authorized size of its senior note repurchase program to $200 million in total. During the year ended December 31, 2020, the Company used borrowings under its revolving credit facility to repurchase in the open market approximately $73.3 million aggregate principal amount of its outstanding Notes for $22.8 million in cash and recognized a $49.6 million gain on debt extinguishment, which included retirement of unamortized issuance costs and fees associated with the repurchased debt. This gain is included in gain on debt extinguishment in the accompanying consolidated statements of operations.
The following schedule shows the components of interest expense for the year ended December 31:
The Company capitalized approximately $0.9 million and $3.4 million in interest expense to undeveloped oil and natural gas properties during the years ended December 31, 2020 and 2019, respectively.
Fair Value of Debt
At December 31, 2020, 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 $1.2 billion at December 31, 2020.
