As of December 12, 2011, there were $17.9 million of borrowings outstanding on the revolving credit facility.
The above summary is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Credit Agreement, which is filed as Exhibit 10.4 to Insteels Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q filed April 26, 2011 and incorporated herein by reference.
