TABLE OF CONTENTS
Item 1.01 Entry Into a Material Definitive Agreement
Item 2.03 Creation of Direct Financial Obligation or an Obligation Under an Off-Balance Sheet Arrangement of Registrant
On November 3, 2005, Matrixx Initiatives, Inc. (Matrixx) and its wholly-owned subsidiary, Zicam, LLC (Zicam, and together with Matrixx, the Company), entered into an Amended and Restated Credit Agreement (the Credit Agreement) with Comerica Bank for the provision by Comerica Bank to the Company of a new credit facility. This credit facility replaces a prior credit facility that the Company held with Comerica Bank. The Credit Agreement, a related Amended and Restated Secured Promissory Note (the Note) and associated security agreements are dated as of September 27, 2005. However, Comerica Bank did not execute and deliver the documents until November 3, 2005.
The Credit Agreement and Note provide for a $4,000,000 revolving credit facility that matures on July 2, 2007. Interest on outstanding balances will accrue at 0.25% above Comerica Banks base rate (or prime rate) as determined from time to time. This interest rate represents a reduction from the 0.75% above prime rate that the Company was required to pay under its prior credit facility with Comerica Bank. The Company may repay all outstanding amounts under the Credit Agreement and Note at any time before maturity without penalty or premium. Amounts repaid during the credit facilitys term may be re-borrowed by the Company prior to maturity. The Companys payment obligations under the Credit Agreement and Note are secured by continuing liens by Comerica Bank over the Companys assets, including Matrixxs equity interest in Zicam and the Companys intellectual property.
The Credit Agreement contains standard provisions relating to default and acceleration of the Companys payment obligations, including the following enumerated events of default by the Company: failure to pay principal, interest, fees or expenses when due; failure to observe or perform covenants and agreements under the Credit Agreement; the making of any materially misleading or untrue representation, warranty or certification; failure to pay other debt (excluding trade payables and certain other current liabilities) when due, or acceleration of (or events triggering a third partys right to accelerate) such other debt; commencement of bankruptcy or other insolvency proceedings by or against the Company; entry of one or more judgments against the Company that exceed applicable insurance coverage by $250,000 or more; a judgment creditor of the Company obtaining possession of Company assets having an aggregate value of more than $50,000; the entry of any order, judgment or decree for the dissolution of Matrixx, Zicam or any guarantor of their Credit Agreement obligations; a notice of lien, levy or assessment being filed by a governmental authority against Company assets or tax amounts due becoming a lien on Company assets, and the amounts due in respect thereof not being paid when due; and a change of control of the Company without Comerica Banks prior written consent.
Copies of the Credit Agreement, the Note and associated security agreements are attached as Exhibits 10.1 through 10.6 to this Report on Form 8-K and are incorporated herein by reference.
