See Note 12 to the Company’s consolidated financial statements included in the 2022 Annual Report for additional information regarding the above listed notes payable and other borrowings.
Toronto-Dominion Bank (“TD Bank”) Term Loan and Revolving Line of Credit
In connection with the acquisition of Colonial Elegance in 2020, Renin amended and restated its credit facility with TD Bank (the "TD Bank credit facility") to include a $30.0 million term loan, increase the availability under its existing revolving operating line of credit with TD Bank to $20.0 million, and extend the maturity of the facility to October 2025. The credit facility was amended during the years ended December 31, 2021 and 2022, which among other things, (i) provided a temporary expansion of the availability under the revolving line of credit from $20.0 million to $24.0 million through December 31, 2022, (ii) provided temporary relief from certain of the financial covenants under the credit facility, (iii) included additional financial covenant requiring Renin to meet certain minimum levels of specified operating results through December 2022, (iv) modified the interest rates applicable to borrowings under the facility, and (v) waived certain breaches of financial covenants under the credit facility. However, as of June 30, 2022 and continuing through January 2023, Renin was not in compliance with the financial covenants under the credit facility which required Renin to meet certain minimum levels of specified operating results, and while TD Bank continued to allow Renin to utilize its revolving line of credit, TD Bank sent formal notices of default to Renin between August 2022 and January 2023.
On February 3, 2023, the credit facility was further amended effective January 31, 2023 to, among other things, (i) temporarily increase the availability under the revolving line of credit from $20.0 million to $22.0 million from January 1, 2023 through December 31, 2023, (ii) require $8.0 million of funding from BBX Capital (including amounts funded by BBX Capital during the period from December 2022 through the date of the amendment) to provide Renin funds to prepay the term loan by no less than $1.5 million and to provide additional working capital to Renin, (iii) waive Renin’s non-compliance with the financial covenants under the credit facility through the date of the amendment, (iv) establish a financial covenant requiring Renin to meet minimum levels of specified operating results from January 2023 through December 2023, (v) redefine the maximum total leverage ratio financial covenant under the credit facility and waive the requirement to comply with the covenant until January 1, 2024, (vi) waive the requirement to comply with the fixed charge coverage ratio financial covenant under the credit facility until January 1, 2024, and (vii) amend the modification period to the later of December 31, 2023 or upon Renin’s compliance with specified financial covenant ratios. The amendment also reduced the interest rates on amounts outstanding under the credit facility during the modification period to (i) the Canadian Prime Rate plus a spread of 2.875% per annum, (ii) the United States Base Rate plus a spread of 2.50% per annum, or (iii) Term SOFR or Canadian Bankers’ Acceptance Rate plus a spread of 4.375% per annum. Under the terms of the amendment, the Term SOFR Rate for loans with one to six-months terms are also subject to an additional credit spread adjustment of 10 to 25 basis points per annum. However, the amendment also increased the interest rates on amounts outstanding under the credit facility by 50 basis points per annum during any periods in which the loan is in default.
In December 2022, BBX Capital contributed $1.0 million of capital to Renin, and in connection with the execution of the amendment in February 2023, BBX Capital contributed $7.0 million of additional capital to Renin pursuant to the terms of the amendment. Renin elected to use a portion of such funds to prepay $2.5 million of the term loan.
As of March 31, 2023, Renin was in compliance with the financial covenants under the TD Bank Credit Facility. However, as a result of the expected impact of the decline in customer demand on Renin’s operating results through April 2023, Renin doesexpect to remain in compliance with the covenant that requires Renin to meet certain minimum levels of specified operating results through April 2023 and has notified TD Bank that it does not expect to remain in compliance with the covenants under the facility. If Renin again falls out of compliance and is unable to obtain additional waivers or modifications of the credit facility, Renin could lose availability under its revolving line of credit, be required to provide additional collateral, or be required to repay all or a portion of its borrowings, any of which would have a material adverse effect on the Company’s liquidity, financial position, and results of operations.
Regions Bank Revolving Line of Credit - IT'SUGAR Credit Facility
In January 2023, IT'SUGAR entered into a credit agreement (the “IT'SUGAR Credit Facility”) with Regions Bank which provides for a revolving line of credit of up to $5.0 million that matures in June 2024. Amounts outstanding under the IT'SUGAR Credit Facility bear interest at the higher of a rate equal to the Regions Bank Prime Rate minus 1.50% per annum or 0% per annum, and the facility requires monthly payments of interest only, with any outstanding principal and accrued interest due at the maturity date. BBXRE pledged a $5.0 million certificate of deposit at Regions Bank to secure the repayment of the IT'SUGAR Credit Facility. The facility contains various customary financial and reporting covenants.
Iberiabank Revolving Line of Credit - LOCS Credit Facility
In July 2021, BBX Sweet Holdings and certain of its subsidiaries, including Las Olas Confections and Snacks, entered into a credit agreement (the “LOCS Credit Facility”) with IberiaBank which provided for a revolving line of credit of up to $2.5 million that was scheduled to mature in July 2023. In March 2023, the LOCS Credit Facility was amended to increase the availability under the revolving line of credit from $2.5 million to $5.0 million and to extend the maturity from July 2023 to March 2025. Amounts outstanding under the amended facility continue to bear interest at the higher of the Wall Street Journal Prime Rate plus 50 basis points or 3.0% per annum,
and the amended facility requires monthly payments of interest only, with any outstanding principal and accrued interest due at the maturity date in March 2025. The LOCS Credit Facility is collateralized by a blanket lien on all of the assets of the borrowers under the facility and is guaranteed by BBX Capital. The facility contains certain financial covenants, including a minimum liquidity requirement for BBX Capital as guarantor under the facility and a requirement that the borrowers must maintain a zero balance on the facility for thirty consecutive days during each calendar year during the term of the facility. As of March 31, 2023, the Company was in compliance with all financial covenants under the LOCS Credit Facility.

The Company recognizes real estate predevelopment costs and a letter of credit obligation upon the issuance of letters of credit for deposits. The letters of credit are issued through a credit facility with Comerica Bank (the “Altman LOC Facility") to provide letters of credit on behalf of the Altman Companies of up to an aggregate amount of $4.0 million. The Altman LOC Facility expires in April 2024 and requires the Altman Companies to pay Comerica Bank an annual fee, in advance, equal to 2% per annum of the amount of each letter of credit originated under the facility.
