proceeds of certain asset dispositions and from net proceeds of certain indebtedness, if incurred (in each case, subject to certain exceptions and limitations provided for in the Senior Secured Term Loan).
IBG Borrower’s obligations under the Senior Secured Term Loan are guaranteed jointly and severally by the Company and the other Guarantors pursuant to a separate facility guaranty. IBG Borrower’s and the Guarantors’ obligations under the Senior Secured Term Loan are secured by first priority liens on and security interests in substantially all assets of IBG Borrower, the Company and the other Guarantors and a pledge of substantially all equity interests of the Company’s subsidiaries (subject to certain limits including with respect to foreign subsidiaries) owned by the Company, IBG Borrower or any other Guarantor. However, the security interests will not cover certain intellectual property and licenses owned, directly or indirectly by the Company’s subsidiary Iconix Luxembourg Holdings SÀRL or those subject to the Company’s securitization facility. In addition, the pledges exclude certain equity interests of Marcy Media Holdings, LLC and the subsidiaries of Iconix China Holdings Limited.
In connection with the Senior Secured Term Loan, IBG Borrower, the Company and the other Guarantors made customary representations and warranties and have agreed to adhere to certain customary affirmative covenants. Additionally, the Senior Secured Term Loan mandates that IBG Borrower, the Company and the other Guarantors enter into account control agreements on certain deposit accounts, maintain and allow appraisals of their intellectual property, perform under the terms of certain licenses and other agreements scheduled in the Senior Secured Term Loan and report significant changes to or terminations of licenses generating guaranteed minimum royalties of more than $0.5 million. Prior to the First Amendment (as discussed below), IBG Borrower was required to satisfy a minimum asset coverage ratio of 1.25:1.00 and maintain a leverage ratio of no greater than 4.50:1.00.
Amendments to Senior Secured Term Loan
On October 27, 2017, the Company entered into the First Amendment to the Senior Secured Term Loan (the “First Amendment”) pursuant to which, among other things, the remaining escrow balance of approximately $231 million (after taking into account approximately $59.2 million that was used to buy back 1.50% Convertible Notes in open market purchases in the third quarter of 2017) was returned to the lenders.
The First Amendment also provided for, among other things, (a) a reduction in the existing $300 million term loan to the then-current term loan balance of approximately $57.8 million, (b) a new senior secured delayed draw term loan facility in the aggregate amount of up to $165.7 million, consisting of (i) a $25 million First Delayed Draw Term Loan (the “First Delayed Draw Term Loan”), and (ii) a $140.7 million Second Delayed Draw Term Loan (the “Second Delayed Draw Term Loan” and, together, with the First Delayed Draw Term Loan, the “Delayed Draw Term Loan Facility”) for the purpose of repaying the 1.50% Convertible Notes; (c) an increase of the Total Leverage Ratio permitted under the Senior Secured Term Loan from 4.50:1.00 to 5.75:1.00; (d) a reduction in the debt service coverage ratio multiplier in the Company’s asset coverage ratio under the Senior Secured Term Loan; (e) an increase in the existing amortization rate from 2 percent per annum to 10 percent per annum commencing July 2019; and (f) amendments to the mandatory prepayment provisions to (i) permit the Company not to prepay borrowings under the Senior Secured Term Loan from the first $100 million of net proceeds resulting from Permitted Capital Raising Transactions (as defined in the Senior Secured Term Loan) effected prior to March 15, 2018, and (ii) eliminate the requirement that the Company pay a Prepayment Premium (as defined in the Senior Secured Term Loan) on any payments or prepayments made prior to December 31, 2018. Indebtedness issued under the Delayed Draw Term Loan Facility was issued with original issue discount.
As a result of the First Amendment, on October 27, 2017, the Company repaid $231.0 million on the Senior Secured Term Loan which represented $240.7 million of outstanding principal balance. On that date, the Company wrote-off a pro-rata portion of the original issue discount and deferred financing costs of $9.3 million and $5.4 million, respectively, which were both recorded to interest expense on the Company’s consolidated statement of operations for FY 2017. As a result of this transaction, the Company’s outstanding principal balance of the Senior Secured Term Loan was reduced to $57.8 million at that time and the Company recorded a gain on modification of debt of $8.8 million (which is net of $0.8 million of additional deferred financing costs associated with the First Amendment) which has been recorded in interest expense on the Company’s consolidated statement of operations for FY 2017.
On November 2, 2017, the Company drew down the full amount of $25.0 million on the First Delayed Draw Term Loan of which the Company received $24.0 million, in cash as this amount was net of the $1.0 million of original issue discount.
Given that the Company was unable to timely file its quarterly financial statements for the quarter ended September 30, 2017 with the SEC by November 14, 2017 and became in default under the terms of the Senior Secured Term Loan, as amended, on November 24, 2017, the Company entered into the Second Amendment to the Senior Secured Term Loan. Pursuant to the Second Amendment, among other things, the lenders under the Senior Secured Term Loan agreed, subject to the Company’s compliance with
