There was no significant activity in Long-term debt during the nine months ended October 1, 2016 and October 3, 2015, respectively. See Note 16 in the Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements in the 2015 Form 10-K for further details regarding the Company's debt.

In June 2016, the Company entered into an Amended and Restated Credit Agreement (Credit Facility). The Credit Facility amends and restates the Company's existing credit agreement, dated as of March 2011, as amended and restated as of June 2014 and discussed in the 2015 Form 10-K. The Credit Facility provides for the same $300 million of borrowing capacity and is in effect through June 2021. The Credit Facility includes provisions to add an additional $100 million of capacity and extend the facility for two additional one-year terms, subject to lender approval. The Company currently pays a facility fee of 20.0 basis points per annum. The facility fee per annum will be within a range of 12.5 to 35.0 basis points based on the Company's credit rating. Under the terms of the Credit Facility, the Company has two borrowing options, including borrowing at a rate tied to adjusted LIBOR plus a spread of 130.0 basis points or a base rate plus a margin of 30.0 basis points. The rates are determined by the Company's credit ratings, with a range of 100.0 to 190.0 basis points for LIBOR rate borrowings and a range of 0.0 to 90.0 basis points for base rate borrowings. The Company is required to maintain compliance with two financial covenants included in the Credit Facility: a minimum interest coverage ratio and a maximum leverage ratio. The minimum interest coverage ratio, as defined in the agreement, is not permitted to be less than 3.00 to 1.00. The maximum leverage ratio, as defined in the agreement, is not permitted to be more than 3.50 to 1.00. As of October 1, 2016, the Company was in compliance with the financial covenants in the Credit Facility.
