On March 30, 2020, Big 5 Sporting Goods Corporation (the “Company”) exercised the accordion feature under its Credit Agreement dated as of October 18, 2010, as amended by that certain First Amendment to Credit Agreement made as of October 31, 2011, as further amended by that certain Second Amendment to Credit Agreement made as of December 19, 2013, and as further amended by that certain Third Amendment to Credit Agreement made as of September 29, 2017, among, inter alia, Big 5 Corp., as lead borrower, the Company as guarantor, Wells Fargo Bank, National Association, as Administrative Agent and Collateral Agent and Swing Line Lender, the other lenders party thereto from time to time, and Wells Fargo Capital Finance, LLC, as Sole Lead Arranger and Sole Book Manager (the “Credit Agreement”). The material terms of the Credit Agreement have been previously disclosed in the Company’s Forms 8-K filed with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission on October 19, 2010, December 20, 2013 and October 5, 2017.

The exercise of the accordion feature increases the aggregate commitments under the credit facility provided by the Credit Agreement from $140 million to $165 million. The amount available to borrow from time to time under the credit facility will vary based on the Company’s operating activities and any covenant limitations.

Additionally, in order to enhance the Company’s financial flexibility during the COVID-19 pandemic, the Company has drawn down additional amounts under its credit facility, and currently has total outstanding indebtedness under the credit facility of approximately $143 million compared to $66.6 million outstanding at the end of fiscal 2019. Following this drawdown, the Company’s current cash position totals approximately $67 million.

 

Item 7.01
