Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.
On February 27, 2017, Allied Healthcare Products, Inc. (the “Company”) entered into that certain Loan and Security Agreement (the “Credit Agreement”) with Summit Financial Resources, L.P. (“Summit”) pursuant to which the Company obtained a secured revolving credit facility (the “Credit Facility”). The Company’s obligations under the Credit Facility are secured by all of the Company’s personal property, both tangible and intangible, pursuant to the terms and subject to the conditions set forth in the Credit Agreement. Availability of funds under the Credit Agreement is based on the Company’s accounts receivable and inventory but will not exceed $2,000,000.00.
The Credit Facility will be available, subject to its terms, on a revolving basis until it expires on February 27, 2019, at which time all amounts outstanding under the Credit Facility will be due and payable. Advances will bear interest at a rate equal to 2.00% in excess of the prime rate as reported in the Wall Street Journal. Interest is computed based on the actual number of days elapsed over a year of 360 days.
Regardless of the amount borrowed under the Credit Facility, the Company will pay a minimum amount of .25% (25 basis points) per month on the maximum availability ($5,000 per month). In the event the Company prepays or terminates the Credit Facility, the Company will be obligated to pay an amount equal to twelve months of minimum monthly payments, minus the number of months elapsed since the effective date of the Credit Agreement.
Under the Credit Agreement, advances are generally subject to customary borrowing conditions and to Summit’s sole discretion to fund the advances. The Credit Agreement also contains covenants with which the Company must comply during the term of the Credit Facility. Among other things, such covenants require the Company to maintain insurance on the collateral, operate in the ordinary course and not engage in a change of control, dissolve or wind up the Company.
The Credit Agreement also contains certain events of default including, without limitation: the failure to make payments when due; the material breach of representations or warranties contained in the Credit Agreement or other loan documents; cross-default with other indebtedness of the Company; the entry of judgments or fines that may have a material adverse effect on the Company; failure to comply with the observance or performance of covenants contained in the Credit Agreement or other loan documents; insolvency of the Company, appointment of a receiver, commencement of bankruptcy or other insolvency proceedings; dissolution of the Company; the attachment of any state or federal tax lien; attachment or levy upon or seizure of the Company’s property; or any change in the Company’s condition that may have a material adverse effect. After an event of default, and upon the continuation thereof, the principal amount of all loans made under the Credit Facility would bear interest at a rate per annum equal to 20.00% above the otherwise applicable interest rate (provided, that the interest rate may not exceed the highest rate permissible under law), and Summit would have the option to accelerate maturity and payment of the Company’s obligations under the Credit Facility.
As of the date of this Current Report on Form 8-K, the Company has no borrowings outstanding under the Credit Facility.
The foregoing summary of the Credit Agreement is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Credit Agreement, a copy of which is filed herewith as Exhibit 99.1, and incorporated by reference herein.
