RLJ Entertainment, Inc.


Notes To Consolidated Financial Statements



our Tranche A Loan from June 30, 2019 to beginning on June 30, 2020. We also amended the payment provisions regarding interest whereby all interest is now settled with shares of common stock at $3.00 per share beginning as of April 1, 2017. The additional $10.0 million borrowed is available for working capital purposes, including the acquisition of content. This amendment also changed certain debt covenant ratios to reflect the extended maturity date and the increase of the Tranche A Loan balance.

Concurrent with the June amendment, RLJ SPAC Acquisition, LLC converted all of its preferred stock holdings into shares of common stock (see Note 8, Redeemable Convertible Preferred Stock and Equity) and AMC exercised a portion of their warrants (see Note 9, Stock Warrants) that resulted in the Tranche B Loan principal reduction of $5.0 million. This reduction in principal did not result in a prepayment penalty.

Subject to certain customary exceptions, the AMC Credit Agreement requires mandatory prepayments if we were to receive proceeds from asset sales, insurance, debt issuance or the exercise of the warrants (see Note 9, Stock Warrants). We may also make voluntary prepayments. Prepayments of the Tranche B Loan (either voluntary or mandatory) are subject to a prepayment premium of 3.0% if principal is repaid on or before October 14, 2018, and 1.5% if principal is repaid after October 14, 2018 but on or before October 14, 2019. No prepayment premium is due for amounts prepaid after October 14, 2019, and for mandatory prepayments made from proceeds received from the exercise of warrants. The Tranche A Loan is not subject to prepayment penalties.

The AMC Credit Agreement contains certain financial and non-financial covenants. Financial covenants are assessed annually and are based on Consolidated Adjusted EBITDA, as defined in the AMC Credit Agreement. Financial covenants vary by fiscal year and generally become more restrictive over time.

Financial covenants include the following:

The AMC Credit Agreement contains events of default that include, among others, non-payment of principal, interest or fees; violation of covenants; inaccuracy of representations and warranties; bankruptcy and insolvency events; material judgments; cross defaults to certain other contracts (including, for example, business arrangements with our U.S. distribution facilitation partner and other material contracts); and indebtedness and events constituting a change of control or a material adverse effect in any of our results of operations or conditions (financial or otherwise). The occurrence of an event of default would increase the applicable rate of interest and could result in the acceleration of our obligations under the AMC Credit Agreement.

The AMC Credit Agreement imposes restrictions on such items as encumbrances and liens, payments of dividends to common stockholders, other indebtedness, stock repurchases, capital expenditures and entering into new lease obligations. Additional covenants restrict our ability to make certain investments, such as loans and equity investments, or investments in content that are not in the ordinary course of business. Pursuant to the AMC Credit Agreement, we must maintain at all times a cash balance of $1.0 million for 2016, $2.0 million in cash for 2017 and $3.5 million in cash for all years thereafter. As of September 30, 2017, we were in compliance with all covenants as stipulated in the AMC Credit Agreement.

Concurrent with entering into the AMC Transaction, we issued the AMC Warrants to acquire shares of our common stock. The first warrant is for 5.0 million shares of common stock, of which 1.7 million shares were exercised in June 2017, and expires on October 14, 2021. The second warrant is for 10.0 million shares of common stock and expires on October 14, 2022. The third warrant is for 5.0 million shares of common stock, subject to adjustment, and expires on October 14, 2023. The AMC Warrants are subject to certain standard anti-dilution provisions, and may be exercised on a non-cash basis at AMC’s discretion.

The third warrant (the AMC Tranche C Warrant) contains a provision that may increase the number of shares acquirable upon exercising, for no additional consideration payable by AMC, such that the number of shares acquirable upon exercise is equal to the sum of (i) at least 50.1% of our then outstanding shares of common stock, determined on a fully diluted basis, less (ii) the sum of 15.0 million shares and the equity interest shares issued in connection with the AMC Credit Agreement. This provision provides AMC
