This AMENDMENT NO. 1 (this “Amendment”) dated as of June 2, 2017 is by and among HANGER, INC., a Delaware corporation (“Borrower”), the Guarantors identified on the signature pages hereto, the Lenders identified on the signature pages hereto and WILMINGTON TRUST, NATIONAL ASSOCIATION, in its capacity as administrative agent (in such capacity, the “Agent”).

 

RECITALS

 

WHEREAS, Borrower, the Lenders and the Agent are parties to the Credit Agreement dated as of August 1, 2016  (as amended, modified, supplemented, increased and extended from time to time prior to the date hereof, the “Credit Agreement”); and

 

WHEREAS, Borrower has requested that the Lenders agree, and the Lenders whose signatures appear below have agreed, to amend the Credit Agreement on the terms and subject to the conditions set forth herein.

 

NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the premises and the mutual covenants hereinafter contained, and for other good and valuable consideration, the receipt and sufficiency of which are hereby acknowledged, the parties hereto agree as follows:

 

1.             Defined Terms.  Capitalized terms defined in the Credit Agreement and used herein without other definition shall have the meanings ascribed to such terms in the Credit Agreement.

 

2.             Amendments to Credit Agreement.  Effective on the Amendment No. 1 Effective Date (as defined below), the Credit Agreement is amended as follows:

 

(a)           Each of Sections 7.01(a), 7.01(c) and 9.01(c)(ii) of the Credit Agreement is hereby amended by replacing each reference to “August 15, 2017” with “February 15, 2018”.

 

(b)           Section 7.01(b) of the Credit Agreement is hereby amended and restated in its entirety to read as follows:

 

(b)           as soon as available, but not later than 45 days (or, in the case of the fiscal quarters ending September 30, 2016 and March 31, 2017, 60 days) after the end of each of the first three fiscal quarters of each fiscal year, a copy of the unaudited consolidated balance sheet of Borrower and its Subsidiaries as of the end of such fiscal quarter and the related consolidated statements of income and cash flows for the period commencing on the first day and ending on the last day of such fiscal quarter, and certified by a Responsible Officer as fairly presenting, in accordance with GAAP (subject to good faith year-end and audit adjustments and the absence of footnotes), the financial position and the results of operations of Borrower and its Subsidiaries;

 

3.             Amendment Fee.  In consideration of the Lenders’ agreements set forth herein, Borrower agrees to pay to the Agent, for the account of each Consenting Lender (defined below), an amendment fee (the “Amendment Fee”) in an amount equal to fifty (50) basis points (0.50%) of the outstanding principal amount of the Loan held by such Consenting Lender on the Amendment No. 1 Effective Date (after giving effect to any repayments on or prior to such date).  The Amendment Fee shall be fully-earned, payable and non-refundable as of the Amendment No. 1 Effective Date.  As used herein, “Consenting Lender” means a Lender that executes and delivers to the Lead Arranger a signature page to this Amendment at or prior to 12:00 p.m. New York City time on June 2, 2017 (or, as to any Lender, such

 



 

later time or date as may be agreed by the Lead Arranger and Borrower) and that does not revoke or otherwise withdraw such signature page on or prior to the Amendment No. 1 Effective Date.

 

4.             Effectiveness; Conditions Precedent.  This Amendment, other than the amendments to the Credit Agreement set forth in Section 2 of this Amendment, shall become effective as of the date when the Agent and the Lead Arranger shall have received counterparts of this Amendment duly executed by Borrower and each of the Required Lenders.  The amendments to the Credit Agreement set forth in Section 2 of this Amendment shall become effective as of the date (the “Amendment No. 1 Effective Date”) when, and only when, each of the following conditions shall have been satisfied (or, in the case of clause (b) below, will be substantially contemporaneously satisfied on such date):

 

(a)           The Lead Arranger shall have received the Amendment Fee.

 

(b)           An amendment to the Senior Secured Credit Agreement has, or on the Amendment No. 1 Effective Date will, become effective in accordance with the terms thereof which amends the Senior Secured Credit Agreement to provide for:

 

(i)                                     a minimum Consolidated Interest Coverage Ratio (as defined in the Senior Secured Credit Agreement) of (a) 2.25:1.00 or greater as of the end of the fiscal quarters of Borrower ending on June 30, 2017, September 30, 2017 and December 31, 2017, and (b) 2.00:1.00 or greater as of the end of any fiscal quarter of Borrower ending thereafter;

 

(ii)                                  a maximum Consolidated Leverage Ratio (as defined in the Senior Secured Credit Agreement) of  5.00:1.00 or less as of the end of the fiscal quarter of Borrower ending on June 30, 2017, and any fiscal quarter of Borrower ending thereafter;

 

(iii)                               a deadline for the delivery of the Required Financial Information (as defined in the Fifth Amendment and Waiver, dated as of July 15, 2016, to the Senior Secured Credit Agreement, and including, without limitation, for the avoidance of doubt, the 2016 Audited Financial Information as defined in such Fifth Amendment and Waiver) extended from August 15, 2017 to no earlier than February 15, 2018; and

 

(iv)                              an aggregate amount of professional fees and expenses that may be added back pursuant to clause (e) of the definition of “Consolidated EBITDA” in the Senior Secured Credit Agreement of not greater than each of the following specified amounts:  (a) $37,000,000 for the period of four consecutive fiscal quarters ending on June 30, 2017, (b) $35,000,000 for the period of four consecutive fiscal quarters ending on September 30, 2017, (c) $31,000,000 for the period of four consecutive fiscal quarters ending on December 31, 2017, (d) $25,000,000 for the period of four consecutive fiscal quarters ending on March 31, 2018 and (e) for any period of four consecutive fiscal quarters ending thereafter, 15.0% of Consolidated EBITDA for such period, calculated without giving the effect to any add back of professional fees and expenses pursuant to this clause.

 

For the avoidance of doubt, such amendment may also amend the Senior Secured Credit Agreement in any other manner that does not conflict with the foregoing and does not conflict with the Credit Agreement.

(c)           Borrower shall have paid all reasonable fees, costs and expenses of the Agent and the Lead Arranger incurred in connection with this Amendment, to the extent invoiced to Borrower at least one Business Day prior to the Amendment No. 1 Effective Date.

 

(d)           The Agent and the Lead Arranger shall have received such other documents, instruments and certificates as the Agent, the Lead Arranger or any Lender may reasonably request.

 

5.             Effect of Amendment.  Except as expressly set forth herein, this Amendment shall not alter, modify, amend or in any way affect any of the terms, conditions, obligations, covenants or agreements contained in the Credit Agreement or any other provision of the Credit Agreement or any other Loan Document, all of which are ratified and affirmed in all respects and shall continue in full force and effect.  As of the Amendment No. 1 Effective Date, each reference in the Credit Agreement to “this Agreement,” “hereunder,” “hereof,” “herein,” or words of like import, and each reference in the other Loan Documents to the Credit Agreement (including, without limitation, by means of words like “thereunder,” “thereof” and words of like import), shall mean and be a reference to the Credit Agreement as amended hereby, and this Amendment and the Credit Agreement shall be read together and construed as a single instrument.  This Amendment shall constitute a Loan Document.

 

6.             Representations and Warranties. The Loan Parties hereby represent and warrant to the Agent, Lead Arranger and the Lenders as follows as of the Amendment No. 1 Effective Date:

 

(a)           Each Loan Party has the corporate or other legal entity power and authority to execute, deliver and perform its obligations under this Amendment.

 

(b)           The execution, delivery and performance by each Loan Party of this Amendment have been duly authorized by all necessary corporate or other legal entity action.

 

(c)           This Amendment has been duly executed and delivered by such Loan Party.

 

(d)           This Amendment constitutes a legal, valid and binding obligation of each Loan Party enforceable against such Loan Party in accordance with its terms, except as enforceability may be limited by applicable bankruptcy, insolvency or similar laws affecting creditors’ rights generally or by equity principles relating to enforceability.

 

(e)           The execution, delivery and performance by each Loan Party of this Amendment does not and will not (i) contravene the terms of any of such Person’s Organization Documents, (ii) conflict with or result in any breach or contravention of, or the creation of any Lien under, any document evidencing any material Contractual Obligation to which such Person is a party or any order, injunction, writ or decree of any Governmental Authority to which such Person or its property is subject or (iii) violate any Requirement of Law.

 

(f)            No approval, consent, exemption, authorization or other action by, or notice to, or filing with, any court Governmental Authority or any other Person (except those that have been obtained and remain in effect and disclosure filings that are required to be made with the SEC) is necessary or required to be made or obtained by any Loan Party in connection with the execution, delivery or performance by, or enforcement against, such Loan Party of this Amendment.

 

(g)           After giving effect to this Amendment, (i) the representations and warranties of the Loan Parties contained in the Loan Documents are true and correct in all material respects on and as of the date hereof to the same extent as though made on and as of the date hereof except to the extent such representations and warranties specifically relate to an earlier date, in which case such

 

3



 

representations and warranties shall be true and correct in all material respects as of such earlier date, and (ii) no Default has occurred and is continuing.

 

If any representation and warranty set forth in this Section 6 is incorrect on and as of the date hereof then such incorrect representation and warranty shall constitute a new and immediate Event of Default without regard to any otherwise applicable notice, cure or grace period.

 

7.             Entirety.  This Amendment and the other Loan Documents embody the entire agreement among the parties hereto and supersede all prior agreements and understandings, oral or written, if any, relating to the subject matter hereof.  This Amendment and the other Loan Documents represent the final agreement between the parties and may not be contradicted by evidence of prior, contemporaneous or subsequent oral agreements of the parties.

 

8.             Counterparts; Electronic Delivery.  This Amendment may be executed in any number of counterparts, each of which when so executed and delivered shall be deemed an original, and it shall not be necessary in making proof of this Amendment to produce or account for more than one such counterpart.  Delivery of an executed counterpart of this Amendment by facsimile or other electronic means shall be effective as an original.

 

9.             Governing Law.  This Amendment and the rights and obligations of the parties hereunder shall be governed by, and construed in accordance with, the law of the State of New York.

 

10.          Consent to Jurisdiction; Service of Process; Waiver of Jury Trial.  The jurisdiction, service of process and waiver of jury trial provisions set forth in Sections 11.15 and 11.16 of the Credit Agreement are hereby incorporated by reference, mutatis mutandis.

 

11.          Miscellaneous. Section headings in this Amendment are included herein for convenience of reference only and shall not constitute a part of this Amendment for any other purpose.  Wherever possible, each provision of this Amendment shall be interpreted in such a manner as to be effective and valid under applicable law, but if any provision of this Amendment shall be prohibited by or invalid under applicable law, such provision shall be ineffective to the extent of such prohibition or invalidity, without invalidating the remainder of such provision or the remaining provisions of this Amendment.  Except as otherwise provided in this Amendment, if any provision contained in this Amendment is in conflict with, or inconsistent with, any provision in the Loan Documents, the provision contained in this Amendment shall govern and control.

 

12.          Roles.  It is agreed that Merrill, Lynch, Pierce, Fenner & Smith Incorporated shall act as the sole lead arranger in connection with the Amendment (in such capacity, together with any of its designated affiliates in such capacity, the “Lead Arranger”).
