ITEM 1.01             ENTRY INTO A MATERIAL DEFINITIVE AGREEMENT.

 

Agreement with Dunham Capital Management Regarding Two Leased Restaurants.

 

On August 31, 2010, we reached an agreement with Dunham Capital Management L.L.C. (“DCM”), the landlord at our South Bend, Indiana and Indianapolis, Indiana restaurant locations, and its lender, First Midwest Bank (“First Midwest”), to acquire ownership of improvements leased by DCM to our company at these leased locations.  The total amount of DCM debt on these improvements approximated $1.8 million.  We agreed to acquire ownership of such improvements by assuming $1.35 million of DCM’s debt to First Midwest and paying $438,000 of DCM’s remaining obligation to First Midwest.  The total purchase price we will pay is based upon a 20-year amortization, with a balloon payment due January 1, 2018.  This debt requires the payment of interest at 5% per year until July 1, 2015, at which time the interest rate adjusts to the then market rate, but not to exceed 7% per year.  Because the terms of this debt are more favorable than our prior lease arrangements, we estimate annual cash flow savings of approximately $180,000 per year following the transaction at the current interest rate.  Our obligations to First Midwest, our payment to DCM and our acquisition of the improvements are subject to a number of conditions including, but not limited to, entering into amended ground leases and other agreements with the owners of the shopping centers in which the leased restaurants are located and other customary conditions.

 

DCM has been the developer and lessor of a majority of our restaurant locations.  DCM is controlled by Donald A. Dunham, Jr., who is a member of our board of directors and the beneficial owner of approximately 64.3% of our common stock, including the shares held by DHW Leasing L.L.C.  The above-described transaction was approved by our board of directors and audit committee in accordance with our policy for the review and approval of related person transactions.
