Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.
On July 1, 2009, iParty Corp. (the “Company”) and its wholly-owned subsidiary, iParty Retail Stores Corp., as borrowers (together, the “Borrowers”), and Wells Fargo Retail Finance, LLC, as Administrative Agent, Collateral Agent, Swing Line Lender and Lender (“Wells Fargo”), entered into a Second Amended and Restated Credit Agreement (the “Agreement”).
The Agreement amends and restates the previous revolving credit facility with Wells Fargo, continues the revolving line of credit in the amount of up to $12,500,000 and extends the maturity date of the revolving line of credit for three years to July 2, 2012. In addition, the Agreement includes an option whereby the Borrowers may increase the revolving line of credit up to a maximum level of $15,000,000. The amount of credit that is available from time to time under the Agreement is determined as a percentage of the value of eligible inventory plus a percentage of the value of eligible credit card receivables, as reduced by certain reserve amounts that may be required by Wells Fargo.
Borrowings under the Agreement will generally accrue interest at a margin ranging from 3.00% to 3.50% (determined according to the average daily excess availability during the fiscal quarter immediately preceding the adjustment date) over, at the Borrowers’ election, either the London Interbank Offered Rate (“LIBOR”) or a base rate determined by Wells Fargo from time to time. The credit facility also provides for letters of credit and includes an unused line fee on the unused portion of the revolving credit line.
Subject to conditions set forth in the Agreement which the Company expects to meet, the Agreement continues to allow proceeds from the revolving line of credit to be used to repay the Company’s $2.5 million loan from Highbridge International LLC when it becomes due on September 15, 2009.
The obligations of the Borrowers under the Agreement and the other loan documents are secured by a lien on substantially all of the personal property of the Company and its direct and indirect wholly-owned domestic subsidiaries.
The full text of the Agreement is attached as Exhibit 10.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and is incorporated herein by reference.
