Item 1.01Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.


On August 24, 2020, CPI Aerostructures, Inc. (the “Company”) entered into a Sixth Amendment and Waiver (“Sixth Amendment”) to that certain Amended and Restated Credit Agreement with the Lenders named therein and BankUnited, N.A. (“BankUnited”) as Sole Arranger, Agent and a Lender, dated as of March 24, 2016 (as amended from time to time, the “Credit Agreement”). In connection with the Sixth Amendment, the Company and BankUnited, N.A. also amended the Amended and Restated Revolving Credit Note, dated as of March 24, 2016, which prior to the amendment represented an aggregate principal commitment amount of $30 million (“Revolving Note”) and the Amended and Restated Term Note, dated as of March 24, 2016, with an original principal amount before the amendment of $10 million (“Term Note”).


Under the Sixth Amendment, and the related amendments to the Revolving Note and Term Note, an aggregate of $6 million of the outstanding balance under the Revolving Note was converted into and added to the outstanding balance on the Term Note. The availability under the Revolving Note was permanently reduced by $6 million, to $24 million, and the outstanding principal amount on the Term Note was increased to approximately $7,933,333.


Additionally, under the Sixth Amendment, the parties amended the Credit Agreement by (i) extending the maturity date of the Revolving Note and Term Note to May 2, 2022, and making conforming changes to the payment schedule on the Term Note, (ii) replacing the interest pricing grid for the Revolving Note with an interest rate for Eurodollar loans of the London inter-bank offered rate (“LIBOR”) plus 3.25% with a floor of 50 basis points or an interest rate for base rate loans equal to BankUnited’s prime rate plus 0.25%, (iii) adding administrative provisions to address a potential phase-out of LIBOR, and (iv) amending certain financial covenants.


As previously disclosed, the Audit & Finance Committee of the Company’s Board of Directors determined, based on the recommendation of management, that the Company’s consolidated financial statements for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2018 and for the quarters ended March 31, 2018, June 30, 2018, September 30, 2018, March 31, 2019, June 30, 2019, and September 30, 2019 should no longer be relied upon due to errors in such consolidated financial statements relating to the Company’s recognition of revenue from contracts with customers. Such errors and related material weaknesses in the Company’s internal controls caused the Company to be in violation of certain of the covenants under the Credit Agreement. BankUnited has agreed to waive each covenant violation under the Credit Agreement and to prospectively waive the covenant violation for late delivery of the Company’s financial statements for the first three quarters of 2020. BankUnited agreed not to test the Company’s compliance with the financial covenants under the Credit Agreement for the first half of 2020. Financial covenant testing will resume for the quarter ending September 30, 2020. BankUnited also consented to the incurrence of additional indebtedness by the Company pursuant to the previously-disclosed loan made by BNB Bank on April 10, 2020, of an aggregate principal amount of $4,795,000 pursuant to the Paycheck Protection Program under the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act and agreed that the income and debt effects of such loan will be excluded for covenant calculation purposes.


The Company paid to BankUnited a commitment fee in the amount of $50,000, together with out of pocket costs, expenses, and reasonable attorney’s fees incurred by BankUnited in connection with the Sixth Amendment. The Company also paid a commitment fee of $30,000 to BNB Bank, a lender under the Credit Agreement.


The foregoing description is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Sixth Amendment, a copy of which is attached to this Form 8-K as Exhibit 10.1 and incorporated herein by reference.




Item 2.03Creation of a Direct Financial Obligation or an Obligation under an Off-Balance Sheet Arrangement of a Registrant.


The information contained in Item 1.01 with respect to the conversion of an aggregate of $6 million from the Revolving Note to the Term Note is incorporated by reference herein.
