On January 30, 2006, Casual Male Retail Group, Inc. (the Company) entered into a sale-leaseback transaction with Spirit Finance Corporation (Spirit). In connection with the transaction, the Company entered into (i) a Contribution Agreement with Spirit and Spirit SPE Canton, LLC, a wholly- owned subsidiary of the Company (SPE), and (ii) a Membership Interest Purchase Agreement with Spirit. Pursuant to these agreements, the transaction was structured whereby the Company contributed, for nominal consideration, to SPE, all of the Companys rights, title and interest in its headquarters and distribution center property and then immediately sold its interest in SPE to Spirit for $57.0 million. The property consists of a 725,835 gross square foot building located on approximately 27.3 acres in Canton, MA. The transaction funded and closed on February 1, 2006.
At the closing, the Company entered into a Lease Agreement with SPE (the Lease Agreement) whereby the Company agreed to lease the property back for an annual rent of $4.56 million, payable monthly and in advance. The initial period of the Lease Agreement is for 20 years and will expire January 31, 2026 unless an option period is exercised. At that time, the Company will have the opportunity to extend the Lease Agreement for six additional successive periods of five years. In addition, on February 1, 2011, the fifth anniversary of the Lease Agreement, and for every fifth anniversary thereafter, the base rent will be subject to a rent increase not to exceed the lesser of 7% or a percentage based on changes in the Consumer Price Index.
On January 31, 2006, the Company amended its credit facility with Bank of America Retail Group, Inc. by executing the Third Amendment to the Fourth Amended and Restated Loan and Security Agreement (the Third Amendment), which amended the Fourth Amended and Restated Loan and Security Agreement dated October 29, 2004, as amended by the First Amendment to the Fourth Amended and Restated Loan and Security Agreement dated March 16, 2005, and the Second Amendment to the Fourth Amended and Restated Loan and Security Agreement dated December 15, 2005 (as amended, the Credit Facility).
The Third Amendment amended the Credit Facility to (i) permit the Company to enter into the sale/leaseback transaction described above, (ii) permit the Company to prepay its Tranche B Loan without penalty or premium and (iii) permit the Company to prepay its Convertible Notes so long as the Companys Excess Availability, as defined in the Credit Facility, remains greater than $30 million immediately after such prepayment and is expected to remain above $30 million for the succeeding six months.
A copy of the Contribution Agreement, Membership Interest Purchase Agreement, Lease Agreement and Third Amendment are filed as Exhibits 10.1, 10.2, 10.3 and 10.4 hereto, respectively, and are incorporated herein by reference.
