AMR entered into a $10,000,000 loan with Green Bank on November 3, 2015. The term of the loan is twenty-one years. The first twelve months interest only is payable and thereafter monthly payments of interest and principal are due. The interest rate will adjust on the first day of each calendar quarter equal to or greater of six percent (6%) or two percent (2%) per annum above the minimum prime lending rate charged by large U.S. money center commercial banks as published in the Wall Street Journal. The terms of the Loan Agreement contain various affirmative and negative covenants. Among them, AMR must maintain a minimum debt service coverage ratio of 1.25 to 1.0, a maximum debt-to-net worth ratio of 1.0 to 1.0 and a minimum current ratio of 1.5 to 1.0. AMR was in compliance with all covenants as of and for the year ending December 31, 2015.


The net proceeds of the loan was deposited into an escrow account at Green Bank. The funds will be released as payment for the building being constructed in McCarran, NV to house AMR’s lead acid recycling operation. Collateral for this loan is AMR’s accounts receivable, goods, equipment, fixtures, inventory, accessions and a certificate of deposit in the amount of $1,000,000.


The loan is guaranteed by the United States Department of Agriculture Rural Development (“USDA”), in the amount of 90% of the principal amount of the loan. The Company paid a guarantee fee to the USDA in the amount of $270,000 at the time of closing and will be required to pay to the USDA an annual fee in the amount of 0.50% of the guaranteed portion of the outstanding principal balance of the loan as of December 31 of each year.


The December 31, 2015 long term note balance is comprised of $1,336 due to Thermo Fisher Financial Service and $9,220,450, net of issuance costs, due to Green Bank.


The December 31, 2015 short term note balance is comprised of $16,034 due to Thermo Fisher Financial Service and $28,932 due to Green Bank.
