Item 2.03 Creation of a Direct Financial Obligation or an Obligation under an Off-Balance Sheet Arrangement of a Registrant
As previously disclosed, NexTier Oilfield Solutions Inc. (the “Company”) is party to that certain Second Amended and Restated Asset-Based Revolving Credit Agreement (the “ABL Agreement”), by and among the Company, as parent guarantor, Keane Group Holdings, LLC, as the lead borrower, certain other subsidiaries of the Company as additional borrowers and guarantors party thereto, the lenders party thereto and Bank of America, N.A., as administrative agent and collateral agent. The ABL Agreement matures on October 31, 2024, with availability of $258.5 million as of March 13, 2020 (subsequent to the previously announced sale of our Well Services segment). The material terms of the ABL Agreement are described under "Liquidity and Capital Resources -- Principal Debt Agreements -- 2019 ABL Facility" in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC") on March 12, 2020, which description is incorporated by reference herein.
As of December 31, 2019, no draws were outstanding under the ABL Agreement, and there were $31.8 million in outstanding letters of credit. On March 13 and on March 16, 2020, we provided notice to the lenders to borrow a total of $175 million under the ABL Agreement, leaving a total of $83.5 million in remaining availability (including the $31.8 million in letters of credit). The interest rates for the $150 million LIBOR borrowing and $25 million Base Rate borrowing are expected to be 2.125% and 3.75%, respectively.
The Company increased its borrowings under the ABL Agreement as a precautionary measure in order to increase its cash position and preserve financial flexibility considering current uncertainty in the global markets resulting from the COVID-19 outbreak and recent OPEC actions. In accordance with the terms of the ABL Agreement, the proceeds from the borrowings may in the future be used for working capital, general corporate or other purposes permitted by the ABL Agreement.
