Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

Expanded Credit Agreement with Squadron Medical Finance Solutions LLC

On March 7, 2019, Alphatec Holdings, Inc. (the “Company”), on its behalf and on behalf of its wholly-owned subsidiaries, entered into a firm letter of commitment for an Expanded Credit Facility with Squadron Medical Finance Solutions LLC (“Squadron”) for up to $30 million in additional secured financing from Squadron.  This additional financing will be made available under the Company’s existing credit facility with Squadron, subject to customary closing conditions.  Draws on the facility will bear interest at LIBOR plus 8% (currently 10.5%), subject to a 10% floor and a 13% ceiling.  Interest-only payments on any draws under the facility are due monthly for the first 30 months.  The additional borrowings under the credit facility will mature concurrent with the current secured financing from Squadron.

In connection with this expanded availability, the Company will issue a warrant to Squadron to purchase 4.8 million shares of the Company’s common stock at an exercise price of $2.17, should the Company draw under the expanded credit facility.  The additional financing and warrant are further subject to the execution of definitive documentation.

The Company expects definitive documentation to be completed before the end of March 2019.
