Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.
New ABL Credit Facility
On November 16, 2017, Lands’ End, Inc. (the “Company”) entered into an ABL credit agreement with Wells Fargo Bank, National Association (the “ABL Credit Agreement”), which provides on the closing date for maximum borrowings of $175,000,000 for the Company, subject to a borrowing base (such facility, the “ABL Facility”). The ABL Facility has a letter of credit sub-limit of $70,000,000. The ABL Facility is available for working capital and other general corporate purposes and is currently undrawn as of the closing date. The ABL Facility will mature no later than November 16, 2022, subject to customary extension provisions provided for therein.
Guarantees; Security
All obligations under the ABL Facility are unconditionally guaranteed by the Company and, subject to certain exceptions, each of its existing and future direct and indirect wholly-owned domestic subsidiaries.
The ABL Facility is secured by (1) a first priority security interest in certain working capital of the Company and guarantors consisting primarily of accounts receivable and inventory and (2) a second priority security interest in certain property and assets of the Company and guarantors, including certain fixed assets and stock of subsidiaries.
Interest; Fees
The interest rates per annum applicable to the loans under the ABL Facility are based on a fluctuating rate of interest measured by reference to, at the Company’s election, either (1) an adjusted London inter-bank offered rate (“LIBOR”) plus a borrowing margin, or (2) an alternative base rate plus a borrowing margin. The borrowing margin for the ABL Facility is subject to adjustment based on the average daily availability under the ABL Facility for the preceding fiscal quarter, and will range from 1.25% to 1.75% in the case of LIBOR borrowings and will range from 0.50% to 1.00% in the case of base rate borrowings.
Customary agency fees are payable in respect of the ABL Facility and include (1) commitment fees in an amount equal to 0.25% of the daily unused portions of the ABL Facility, and (2) customary letter of credit fees.
Representations and Warranties; Covenants
The ABL Facility contains various representations and warranties and restrictive covenants that, among other things and subject to specified exceptions, restrict the ability of the Company and its restricted subsidiaries to incur indebtedness (including guarantees), grant liens, make investments, make restricted payments, make prepayments on other indebtedness, engage in mergers or change the nature of their business. In addition, if excess availability under the ABL Facility falls below the greater of 10% of the loan cap amount or $15 million, the Company will be required to comply with a minimum fixed charge coverage ratio of 1.0 to 1.0. The ABL Facility does not otherwise contain financial maintenance covenants.
The ABL Facility contains certain affirmative covenants, including reporting requirements, such as delivery of financial statements, certificates and notices of certain events, maintaining insurance, and providing additional guarantees and collateral in certain circumstances.
Events of Default
The ABL Facility includes customary events of default including non-payment of principal, interest or fees, violation of covenants, inaccuracy of representations or warranties, cross default to certain other material indebtedness, bankruptcy and insolvency events, invalidity or impairment of guarantees or security interests, material judgments and change of control.
The foregoing description of the ABL Facility is only a summary of the material terms thereof, does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the ABL Credit Agreement, a copy of which is attached hereto as Exhibit 10.1 and incorporated herein by reference.
