Item 1.01. Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.
On November 7, 2012, Summer Infant, Inc. (the Company) and its wholly-owned subsidiary, Summer Infant (USA), Inc., entered into an amendment (the Amendment) to the amended and restated credit agreement (as amended, the Loan Agreement) with Bank of America, N.A. and the other lenders thereunder (together, the Lender).
Among other provisions, the Amendment amended the Loan Agreement to provide that:
· The applicable rate added to Eurodollar rate or BBA LIBOR rate loans and L/C fees under the Loan Agreement will be 4.75%, and 2.75% for base rate loans, for the period October 1, 2012 through March 31, 2013, and thereafter each applicable rate increases by 1.00% in each fiscal quarter.
· Beginning October 1, 2012, loans under the Loan Agreement will accrue additional interest of 2.00% per annum not paid currently in cash but payable in kind by adding such accrued interest to the outstanding principal of the loans, or PIK interest. PIK interest is due and payable on the earliest of (i) the maturity date of the loans, (ii) the date all loans are paid in full and all loan commitments are terminated, and (iii) the date of acceleration of loans upon an event of default, provided that if all obligations under the Loan Agreement are paid in full and all commitments terminated on or prior to March 31, 2013, the Lender will forgive 50% of the accrued and unpaid PIK interest.
· The Company is subject to ongoing compliance with certain financial covenants, including that (i) the Company and its subsidiaries maintain and earn on a consolidated basis as of the last day of each fiscal quarter, a specified consolidated EBITDA amount (as defined in the Loan Agreement) for the 12-month period ending on the last day of each fiscal quarter, beginning September 30, 2012; (ii) the Company and its subsidiaries maintain a certain ratio of consolidated total funded debt to consolidated EBITDA; and (iii) the Company and its subsidiaries maintain a minimum fixed charge ratio. In addition, the Company must limit its quarterly capital expenditures.
The foregoing description of the Amendment does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Amendment, which is filed herewith as Exhibit 10.1 and is incorporated by this reference.
