Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement On August 28, 2014, PMI Holdings, Inc. ("PMI"), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Papa Murphy's Holdings, Inc. (the "Company") entered into a senior secured credit facility (the "New Credit Facility") with PMI as the borrower, the guarantors party thereto, General Electric Capital Corporation, for itself, as a lender and swingline lender, and as agent for all lenders, and the other financial institutions party thereto as lenders. The New Credit Facility, provides for senior secured financing of up to $132.0 million, consisting of a term loan of $112.0 million, which was fully drawn at closing, and a revolving credit facility of $20.0 million, which includes a $2.5 million letter of credit sub-facility and a $1.0 million swing-line loan sub-facility. The New Credit Facility is being used to refinance the Company's Prior Credit Facility (as defined in Item 1.02 below) and will also be available for working capital, capital expenditures and other general corporate purposes. PMI's obligations under the New Credit Facility are guaranteed by certain domestic subsidiaries of the Company and are secured by substantially all of the assets of the Company and its subsidiaries. Borrowings under the New Credit Facility bear interest at a rate per annum equal to an applicable margin based on the Company's consolidated leverage ratio, plus, at our option, either (a) a base rate determined by reference to the highest of (i) the "Prime Rate" publicly quoted by The Wall Street Journal, (ii) the federal funds rate plus 50 basis points, or (iii) the LIBOR rate with a one-month interest period plus 100 basis points, or (b) a LIBOR rate determined for the specified interest period. The applicable margin for borrowings under the New Credit Facility ranges from 150 to 225 basis points for base rate borrowings and 250 to 325 basis points for LIBOR rate borrowings. The Company's initial applicable margins are 225 basis points for base rate borrowings or 325 basis points for LIBOR rate borrowings. The New Credit Facility includes customary fees for loan facilities of this type, including a commitment fee on the revolving credit facility. The term loan requires scheduled quarterly principal payments of $0.7 million commencing in March 2015. These payments increase to $1.4 million beginning in September 2016 and continue until the term loan matures in August 2019. The Company will be required to make certain mandatory prepayments under certain circumstances and will have the option to make certain prepayments. The New Credit Facility contains customary affirmative negative covenants that are usual and customary for loan facilities of this type, including covenants that, among other things, restrict our ability and the ability of our subsidiaries to incur indebtedness, issue certain types of equity, incur liens, enter into fundamental changes, including mergers and consolidations, sell assets, make dividends, distributions and investments, and prepay subordinated indebtedness, subject to customary exceptions. The New Credit Facility also includes certain financial covenants with respect to a maximum consolidated leverage ratio and a minimum interest coverage ratio. The New Credit Facility also includes customary events of default that include, among other things, payment defaults, material inaccuracy of representations and warranties, covenant defaults, cross-defaults to certain material indebtedness, certain events of bankruptcy or insolvency, material judgments, material defects with respect to lenders' perfection on the collateral, invalidity of subordination provisions of the subordinated debt and changes of control. The occurrence of an event of default could result in the acceleration of the obligations under the New Credit Facility. Certain lenders that are parties to the New Credit Facility have performed and may continue to perform investment banking, financial advisory, lending or commercial banking services for the Company and its subsidiaries and affiliates, for which they have and may in the future receive customary compensation and reimbursement of expenses.
