The amendments to the Facility include the following changes:

This ratio is to be no more than 10% for 2020 Q2 and 2020 Q3 and no more than 15% in 2020 Q4 and 2021 Q1. TNW is defined as shareholders' equity plus subordinated debt less investments in or amounts owed by any related party which does not constitute subordinated debt;

  • Advances under the Facility will bear interest at the financial institution's prime rate plus 1.75% to 3.25% or bankers' acceptance rate plus 3.00% to 4.25% with interest payable monthly, depending upon the consolidated funded debt to consolidated EBITDA ratio; and
