During March 2020, a global pandemic was declared by the World Health Organization related to the rapidly growing outbreak of a novel strain of coronavirus (COVID-19). The pandemic has significantly impacted the economic conditions in the U.S., accelerating during the first half of March, as federal, state and local governments react to the public health crisis, creating significant uncertainties in the U.S. economy. The Company has announced that all stores will close through April 1, 2020. As a result of these developments, the Company expects a material adverse impact on its sales, results of operations and cash flows. This situation is rapidly changing and additional impacts to the business may arise that we are not aware of currently. While the disruption is currently expected to be temporary, there is uncertainty around the duration. The ultimate impact of the pandemic on the Company’s results of operations, financial position, liquidity or capital resources cannot be reasonably estimated at this time.

On March 16 and March 19, 2020, the Company borrowed $800 million and $450 million, respectively, from the Revolving Facility (see Note 12) as a precautionary measure to increase its cash position and preserve financial flexibility considering uncertainty in the U.S. and global markets resulting from COVID-19. Borrowings under the Revolving Facility will bear interest, at the Company’s option, at a base rate or LIBOR, plus an applicable interest rate margin varying depending on the Company’s utilization of the Revolving Facility. The current rates on the borrowings will range from 2.75% to 4.0%. The proceeds from the Revolving Facility draw may be used for working capital needs or general corporate purposes.
