Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.


Revolving Loan Facility


On July 30, 2021, iMedia Brands, Inc. (the “Company”) and certain of its subsidiaries, as borrowers, entered into a loan and security agreement (the “Loan Agreement”) with Siena Lending Group LLC and the other lenders party thereto from time to time, Siena Lending Group LLC, as agent (the “Agent”), and certain additional subsidiaries of the Company, as guarantors thereunder. The Loan Agreement has a three-year term and provides for up to a $80 million revolving line of credit. Subject to certain conditions, the Loan Agreement also provides for the issuance of letters of credit in an aggregate amount up to $5,000,000 which, upon issuance, would be deemed advances under the revolving line of credit. Proceeds of borrowings shall be used to refinance all indebtedness owing to PNC Bank, National Association, to pay the fees, costs, and expenses incurred in connection with the Loan Agreement and the transactions contemplated thereby, for working capital purposes, and for such other purposes as specifically permitted pursuant to the terms of the Loan Agreement. The Company’s obligations under the Loan Agreement are secured by substantially all of its assets and the assets of its subsidiaries as further described in the Loan Agreement.


Subject to certain conditions, borrowings under the Loan Agreement bear interest at 4.50% per annum in excess of the London interbank offered rate for deposits in dollars (“LIBOR”) for a period of 30 days as published in The Wall Street Journal three business days prior to the first day of each calendar month, or 0.50% per annum, whichever is greater or, if LIBOR is no longer available, a successor rate to be chosen by the Agent in consultation with the Company or a base rate.


The Loan Agreement contains customary representations and warranties and financial and other covenants and conditions, including, among other things, minimum liquidity requirements of not less than $7,500,000 as of the end of any fiscal month and a maximum senior net leverage ratio of not less than 2.50:1.00 as of the last day of each fiscal quarter. In addition, the Loan Agreement places restrictions on the Company’s ability to incur additional indebtedness or prepay existing indebtedness, to create liens or other encumbrances, to sell or otherwise dispose of assets, to merge or consolidate with other entities, and to make certain restricted payments, including payments of dividends to shareholders. The Company also pays a monthly fee at a rate equal to 0.50% per annum of the average daily unused amount of the credit facility for the previous month.


The full terms and conditions of this financing are set forth in the Loan Agreement. A copy of the Loan Agreement is filed as Exhibit 10.1 hereto and is incorporated by reference herein.


Term Loan


On July 30, 2021, two of the Company’s subsidiaries, VVI Fulfillment Center, Inc. and EP Properties, LLC (collectively, the “Borrowers”), and the Company, as guarantor, entered into that certain Promissory Note Secured by Mortgages (the “Note”) with GreenLake Real Estate Finance LLC (“GreenLake”) whereby GreenLake agreed to make a secured term loan (the “Term Loan”) available to the Borrowers in the original amount of $28,500,000.00. The Note is secured by, among other things, mortgages encumbering the Company’s owned properties in Eden Prairie, Minnesota and Bowling Green, Kentucky (collectively, the “Mortgages”) as well as other assets as described in the Note. Proceeds of borrowings shall be used to (i) pay fees and expenses related to the transactions contemplated by the Note, (ii) make certain payments approved by GreenLake to third parties, and (iii) provide for working capital and general corporate purposes of the Company. The Company has also pledged the stock that it owns in the Borrowers to secure its guarantor obligations.


The Note is scheduled to mature on July 31, 2024. The borrowings, which include all amounts advanced under the Note, bear interest at 10.00% per annum or, at the election of the Lender upon no less than 30 days prior written notice to the Borrowers, at a floating rate equal to the prime rate plus 200 basis points.





The Borrowers may prepay the Note in full (but not in part) before July 30, 2022 (the “Lockout Date”) upon payment of a prepayment premium equal to the amount of interest that would have accrued from the date of prepayment through the Lockout Date. After the Lockout Date, the Note may be prepaid in full or in any installment greater than or equal to $100,000 without any prepayment penalty or premium on 90 days’ prior written notice from Borrowers to GreenLake.


The Note contains customary representations and warranties and financial and other covenants and conditions, including, a requirement that the Borrowers comply with all covenants set forth in the Loan Agreement described above. The Note also contains certain customary events of default.
