In addition, Main Street continues to maintain two, one-year extension options under the amended Credit Facility which could extend the final maturity of the Credit Facility for up to two additional years. Borrowings under the Credit Facility bear interest, subject to Main Street's election, on a per annum basis equal to (i) the applicable LIBOR rate plus 2.25% or (ii) the applicable base rate plus 1.25%. Main Street will pay unused commitment fees of 0.25% per annum on the average unused lender commitments under the Credit Facility.
