|Short-term Borrowings and Long-term Debt||SHORT-TERM BORROWINGS AND LONG-TERM DEBT
On May 17, 2019, the Company entered into a $1.55 billion senior secured credit facility under which it incurred $1.05 billion of indebtedness, the proceeds of which were used primarily to finance a cash transfer to VF in connection with the Separation. At inception, this facility consisted of a five-year $750.0 million term loan A facility (“Term Loan A”), a seven-year $300.0 million term loan B facility (“Term Loan B”) and a five-year $500.0 million revolving credit facility (the “Revolving Credit Facility”) (collectively, the “Credit Facilities”) with the lenders and agents party thereto.
The Credit Facilities contain certain affirmative and negative covenants customary for financings of this type, including maintenance of ratios for consolidated earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization to both consolidated debt and interest expense. If the Company fails to comply with any covenants, the lenders may terminate their obligation to make advances and declare any outstanding obligations to be immediately due and payable. As of December 2019, the Company was in compliance with all covenants.
The following table presents the components of short-term borrowings as recorded in the Company's balance sheet:
The Revolving Credit Facility may be used to borrow funds in both U.S. dollar and certain non-U.S. dollar currencies, and has a $75.0 million letter of credit sublimit. The Revolving Credit Facility had $1.3 million of outstanding standby letters of credit issued on behalf of the Company as of December 2019, leaving $498.7 million available for borrowing against this facility. The Company expects to utilize the borrowing capacity under the Revolving Credit Facility from time to time to provide working capital and funds for general corporate purposes.
Borrowings under the Revolving Credit Facility are priced at a credit spread of 175 basis points over the appropriate LIBOR benchmark for each currency, or 75 basis points over the base rate for each currency, at the Company's election. The Company is also required to pay a facility fee to the lenders, currently equal to 30 basis points of the undrawn amount of the facility. The credit spread and facility fee are subject to adjustments based on the Company's credit ratings.
At December 2019 and 2018, the Company had $47.8 million and $35.9 million, respectively, of international lines of credit with various banks, which are uncommitted and may be terminated at any time by either the Company or the banks. Total outstanding balances under these arrangements were $1.1 million and $3.2 million at December 2019 and 2018, respectively, all of which were letters of credit and non-interest bearing to the Company.
The following table presents the components of long-term debt as recorded in the Company's balance sheet:
The interest rate per annum applicable to Term Loan A is either 75 basis points over the base rate or 175 basis points over the applicable LIBOR benchmark, at the Company's election.
Additionally, the interest rate per annum applicable to Term Loan B is either a base rate plus a margin of 3.25% or LIBOR plus a margin of 4.25%, at the Company's election. The LIBOR rate for both loans is subject to a "floor" of 0%. Interest payments are due quarterly on both Term Loan A and Term Loan B.
Term Loan A had an outstanding principal amount of $700.0 million at December 2019 and is recorded net of unamortized debt issuance costs. During 2019, interest expense on this facility was recorded at an effective annual interest rate of 3.7%, including the amortization of debt issuance costs and the impact of the Company’s interest rate swap agreements.
Term Loan B had an outstanding principal amount of $223.0 million at December 2019 and is recorded net of unamortized original issue discount and debt issuance costs. During 2019, interest expense on this facility was recorded at an effective annual interest rate of 6.4%, including the amortization of original issue discount, debt issuance costs and the impact of the Company’s interest rate swap agreements.
During 2019, the Company made $50.0 million and $77.0 million of principal payments related to Term Loan A and Term Loan B, respectively, including optional repayments. As a result of optional repayments during 2019, the Company is not required to make mandatory principal payments on long-term debt until June 2021.
The following table presents scheduled payments of long-term debt as of December 2019 for the next five years and thereafter:
