Receivables Agreement. On February 8, 2018, we entered into a Recourse Receivables Purchase & Security Agreement (the “Receivables Agreement”) with Porter Capital Corporation (“Porter Capital”). Under the terms of the Receivables Agreement, we have been able, from time to time, to sell accounts receivable (“Accounts”) to Porter Capital in exchange for funds in an amount equal to 80% (or less as percentage is subject to credit limits established by Porter Capital) of the face amount of the applicable Account at the time of sale of the Account, with the remaining 20% of the face amount of the applicable Account to be held back as a required reserve amount to be paid to us following Porter Capital’s receipt of payment on the Account by the account debtor, less applicable fees and interest charges. The total face amount of outstanding Accounts purchased by Porter Capital under the Receivables Agreement could not exceed $12.5 million.
Under the terms of the Receivables Agreement, we have been obligated to pay interest on the face amount of the outstanding and unpaid Accounts purchased by Porter Capital, less the amount of the reserve account, at an interest rate equal to the Prime Rate (as defined in the Receivables Agreement) plus 8.25%. We have also been obligated under the Receivables Agreement to pay certain fees, including a fee (the “Minimum Term Fee”) payable upon termination of the agreement in an amount equal to: (i) the monthly interest rate multiplied by $5 million, multiplied by the number of months in the agreement term, less the amount of actual interest paid during the term of the agreement; or (ii) following the occurrence of an Event of Default (as defined below) that has not been cured within the time periods contemplated under the agreement, $1.8 million, less the amount of actual interest paid during the term of the agreement. The Minimum Term Fee was also subject to reduction under certain circumstances if Porter Capital did not purchase certain eligible Accounts that are presented for purchase by us.
All of our obligations under the Receivables Agreement have been secured by liens on certain of our assets, including the accounts receivable, chattel paper, inventory relating to our U.S. operations and certain equipment used for our U.S. operations (excluding equipment subject to vendor financing) (collectively, the “Collateral”). The Receivables Agreement further provided for customary events of default (“Events of Default”), including but not limited to the failure to make payments when due; insolvency events; the failure to comply with covenant obligations arising under the agreement or other agreements with Porter Capital or its affiliates; and breaches of representations and warranties. Upon the occurrence of an Event of Default, Porter Capital could terminate the Receivables Agreement and declare all of our outstanding obligations under the Receivables Agreement to be due and payable. The Receivables Agreement had an initial term of one year and would renew for successive one-year terms unless we provided notice of cancellation in accordance with the terms of the Receivables Agreement. We were also able to terminate the Receivables Agreement prior to the expiration of the term upon written notice and payment of our obligations thereunder. Following the end of the third quarter of 2018, we terminated the Receivables Agreement. See Note 10 -- Subsequent Events.
For sales of our receivable under this Receivables Agreement, the Company applies the guidance in ASC 860, “Transfers and Servicing – Sales of Financial Assets”, which requires the derecognition of the carrying value of those accounts receivable in the Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets. For the quarter ended September 30, 2018, $15.3 million of accounts receivable transferred pursuant to the Receivables Agreement qualified as sales of receivables and the carrying amounts were derecognized. There was no loss associated with the sales of these receivables. At September 30, 2018, we are owed $0.5 million representing the held back required reserve amount to be paid to us following Porter Capital’s receipt of payment on the Account by the account debtor. This balance is included in accounts receivable on the Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets.
The entire disclosure for claims held for amounts due a entity, excluding financing receivables. Examples include, but are not limited to, trade accounts receivables, notes receivables, loans receivables. Includes disclosure for allowance for credit losses.
