The Fourth Amendment amends the Credit Agreement to, among other things, to provide that the borrowers will not permit the fixed charge coverage ratio to be less than 1.1 to 1.0 as of the last day of any calendar month; provided that the fixed charge coverage ratio will not be tested unless (i) a default has occurred and is continuing, (ii) (A) at any time on or before June 30, 2020, availability was less than or equal to the greater of (1) 10% of the lesser of (x) the borrowing base or (y) the combined commitments minus the availability block, if applicable, and (2) $2,000,000, for three or more business days in any consecutive 30 day period or (B) at any time on or after July 1, 2020, availability was less than or equal to 12.5% of the combined commitments for three or more business days in any consecutive 30 day period.
Further, the Fourth Amendment amends the definition of EBITDA to include, to the extent not otherwise included in the determination of “Net Income,” the amount of any cash proceeds of any business interruption insurance policy that represent amounts replacing earnings for such period.
The foregoing descriptions of the Fourth Amendment do not purport to be complete and are qualified in their entirety by reference to the full text of the Fourth Amendment attached to this Form 8-K as Exhibit 10.1 and incorporated herein by reference.
