Announces Debt Refinancing with Wells Fargo Bank N.A, Lowering Interest Rate
Model N announced that it has completed the refinancing of its existing term loan under a new Credit Agreement with Wells Fargo Bank, N.A. The Wells Fargo Bank facility is comprised of a term loan of $50.0 million and a revolver of $5.0 million. The proceeds from the new loan were used in part to pay off the amounts outstanding under the existing term loan agreement, which bore an interest rate of LIBOR plus 8.25% during the second quarter of fiscal 2018. Borrowing under the new Credit Agreement will bear interest, at the Company’s selection, of either (i) Base Rate plus a margin of 3.5% to 2.0% or (ii) a LIBOR plus a margin of 4.5% to 3.0%, with margin steps down based upon on the Company’s leverage ratio. With this refinancing, Model N will have a 45% to 64% reduction in LIBOR margin.
Financial Impact of Debt Refinancing and Interest Rate
- Excluding any prepayment penalty, Model N anticipates the new loan to reduce its cash interest payment by approximately $0.8 million for the remainder of fiscal 2018.
- In the third quarter of fiscal 2018, we expect to incur a one-time charge of approximately $3.2 million in connection with the refinancing, of which approximately $1.7 million is non-cash unamortized discounts and deferred financing costs write-off and $1.5 million in prepayment penalty. These amounts will be recorded as interest expense.

The words “believe,” “may,” “will,” “estimate,” “continue,” “anticipate,” “intend,” “expect,” and similar expressions are intended to identify forward-looking statements.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures
We have provided in this release financial information that has not been prepared in accordance with accounting standards generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”). We use these non-GAAP financial measures internally in analyzing our financial results and believe they are useful to investors, as a supplement to GAAP measures, in evaluating our ongoing operational performance. We believe that the use of these non-GAAP financial measures provides an additional tool for investors to use in evaluating ongoing operating results and trends and in comparing our financial results with other companies in our industry, many of which present similar non-GAAP financial measures to investors.
Non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered in isolation from, or as a substitute for, financial information prepared in accordance with GAAP. Investors are encouraged to review the reconciliation of these non-GAAP financial measures to their most directly comparable GAAP financial measures below. A reconciliation of our non-GAAP financial measures to their most directly comparable GAAP measures has been provided in the financial statement tables included below in this press release.
Our reported results include certain non-GAAP financial measures, including non-GAAP gross profit, non-GAAP income (loss) from operations, non-GAAP net loss, non-GAAP net (loss) income per share, and adjusted EBITDA. Non-GAAP gross profit excludes stock-based compensation expense, acquisition & integration related expenses, deferred revenue adjustment and amortization of intangible assets. Non-GAAP loss from operations and non-GAAP net loss exclude stock-based compensation expense, amortization of intangible assets, and acquisition & integration related expenses, deferred revenue adjustment and valuation allowance resulting from Revitas acquisition as they are often excluded by other companies to help investors understand the operational performance of their business and, in the case of stock-based compensation, can be difficult to predict and therefore we have not provided a reconciliation of forecasted Non-GAAP results with GAAP. In addition, stock-based compensation expense varies from period to period and company to company due to such things as differing valuation methodologies and changes in stock price. Adjusted EBITDA is defined as net loss, adjusted depreciation and amortization, stock-based compensation expense, acquisition & integration related expenses, deferred revenue adjustment, interest (income) expense, net, and other (income) expenses, net, and provision (benefit) for income taxes. Reconciliation tables are provided in this press release.
