Capitalized terms not otherwise defined in this Amendment shall have the meanings assigned to them in the Loan Agreement.
B. Borrower has requested that Lender amend and modify certain terms and provisions of the Loan Agreement.
C. Lender has agreed to so amend the Loan Agreement upon the terms and subject to the conditions set forth in this Amendment.

Thereafter, the margins shall be subject to increase or decrease by Lender on the first day of the calendar month following each Fiscal Quarter end based on average daily Availability for the immediately preceding Fiscal Quarter. If Lender is unable to calculate average daily Availability for a Fiscal Quarter due to Borrower’s failure to deliver any Borrowing Base Certificate when required hereunder, then, at the option of Lender, margins shall be determined as if Level II were applicable until the first day of the calendar month following Lender’s receipt of such Borrowing Base Certificate.
Borrowing Base Certificate: a certificate substantially in the form of Exhibit A (or such other form acceptable to Lender) and satisfactory to Lender in all respects, by which Borrower certifies the Borrowing Base; provided, however, that so long as an Ineligible Inventory Trigger Period is not in effect, ineligible Inventory shall be reported on a quarterly basis and not a monthly basis, beginning with the Borrowing Base Certificate delivered with respect to the Fiscal Quarter ending December 31, 2020.

FCCR Trigger Period: the period (a) commencing on any day that (i) an Event of Default occurs, or (ii) Availability is less than $2,000,000 or 12.50% of the Revolver Commitment; and (b) continuing until, during each of the preceding 30 consecutive days, no Event of Default has existed and Availability has been more than $2,000,000 and 12.50% of the Revolver Commitment.

Term SOFR: the forward-looking term rate for any period that is approximately (as determined by Lender) as long as any interest period option set forth in the definition of “Interest Period” and that is based on SOFR and has been selected or recommended by the Relevant Governmental Body, in each case as published on an information service selected by Lender from time to time in its discretion.
3. Inability to Determine Rates. Section 3.6 of the Loan Agreement is hereby deleted in its entirety and replaced with the following:
3.6.1 Inability to Determine Rates. If Lender notifies Borrower in connection with a Borrowing, conversion or continuation of, a LIBOR Loan that for any reason (a) Dollar deposits are not being offered to banks in the London interbank Eurodollar market for the applicable Loan amount or Interest Period, (b) adequate and reasonable means do not exist for determining LIBOR for the applicable Interest Period, or (c) LIBOR for the applicable Interest Period does not adequately and fairly reflect the cost to Lender of funding the Loan, then Lender's obligation to make or maintain LIBOR Loans shall be suspended to the extent of the affected LIBOR Loan or Interest Period until Lender revokes the notice. Upon receipt of the notice, Borrower may revoke any pending request for a Borrowing, conversion or continuation of a LIBOR Loan or, failing that, will be deemed to have submitted a request for a Base Rate Loan. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Lender may propose an alternative interest rate for the applicable Loan, which Borrower may elect to apply to the Loan.
3.6.2 Replacement of LIBOR. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in any Loan Document, if Lender determines (which determination shall be conclusive absent manifest error), or Borrower notifies Lender that Borrower has determined, that:
(a) adequate and reasonable means do not exist for ascertaining LIBOR for any Interest Period hereunder or any other tenors of LIBOR, including because the LIBOR Screen Rate is not available or published on a current basis, and such circumstances are unlikely to be temporary; or
(b) the administrator of the LIBOR Screen Rate or a Governmental Authority having jurisdiction over Lender or such administrator has made a public statement identifying a specific date after which LIBOR or the LIBOR Screen Rate shall no longer be made available or used for determining the interest rate of loans, provided that, at the time of such statement, there is no successor administrator satisfactory to Lender that will continue to provide LIBOR after such specific date (such specific date, “Scheduled Unavailability Date”); or
(c) the administrator of the LIBOR Screen Rate or a Governmental Authority having jurisdiction over such administrator has made a public statement announcing that all Interest Periods and other tenors of LIBOR are no longer representative; or
(d) commercial loans currently being executed, or that include language similar to that contained in this Section, are being executed or amended (as applicable) to incorporate or adopt a new benchmark interest rate to replace LIBOR;
then, in the case of clauses (a) through (c) above, on a date and time determined by Lender (any such date, “LIBOR Replacement Date”), which date shall be at the end of an Interest Period or on the relevant interest payment date, as applicable, for interest calculated and shall occur reasonably promptly upon the occurrence of any of the events or circumstances under clauses (a), (b) or (c) above and, solely with respect to clause (b) above, no later than the Scheduled Unavailability Date, LIBOR will be replaced hereunder and under the other Loan Documents with, subject to the proviso below, the first available alternative set forth in the order below for any payment period for interest calculated that can be determined by Lender, in each case, without any amendment to, or further action or consent of any other party to, this Agreement or any other Loan Document (“LIBOR Successor Rate”; and any such rate before giving effect to the Related Adjustment, “Pre-Adjustment Successor Rate”):
(x) Term SOFR plus the Related Adjustment; and
(y) SOFR plus the Related Adjustment;
and in the case of clause (d) above, Lender may amend this Agreement solely for the purpose of replacing LIBOR under this Agreement and the other Loan Documents in accordance with the definition of “LIBOR Successor Rate” and such amendment will become effective at 5:00 p.m. on the fifth Business Day after Lender has notified Borrower of the occurrence of the circumstances described in clause (d) above; provided that if Lender determines that Term SOFR has become available, is administratively feasible for Lender and would have been identified as the Pre-Adjustment Successor Rate in accordance with the foregoing if it had been so available at the time that the LIBOR Successor Rate then in effect was so identified, and notifies Borrower of such availability, then from and after the beginning of the Interest Period, relevant interest payment date or payment period for interest calculated, in each case, commencing no less than 30 days after the date of such notice, the Pre-Adjustment Successor Rate shall be Term SOFR and the LIBOR Successor Rate shall be Term SOFR plus the relevant Related Adjustment.
Lender will promptly (in one or more notices) notify Borrower of (x) any occurrence of any events, periods or circumstances under clauses (a) through (c) above, (y) a LIBOR Replacement Date, and (z) the LIBOR Successor Rate. Any LIBOR Successor Rate shall be applied in a manner consistent with market practice; provided that to the extent such market practice is not administratively feasible for Lender, such LIBOR Successor Rate shall be applied in a manner as otherwise reasonably determined by Lender. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in any Loan Document, if at any time any LIBOR Successor Rate as so determined would otherwise be less than 0.00%, the LIBOR Successor Rate will be deemed to be 0.00% for the purposes of this Agreement and the other Loan Documents.
In connection with the implementation of a LIBOR Successor Rate, Lender will have the right to make LIBOR Successor Rate Conforming Changes from time to time and, notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein or in any other Loan Document, any amendments implementing such LIBOR Successor Rate Conforming Changes will become effective without any further action or consent of any other party to this Agreement; provided that, with respect to any such amendment effected, Lender shall deliver each amendment implementing such LIBOR Successor Rate Conforming Changes to Borrower reasonably promptly after such amendment becomes effective.
If events or circumstances of the type described in clauses (a) through (c) above occur with respect to any LIBOR Successor Rate then in effect, the successor rate thereto shall be determined in accordance with the definition of “LIBOR Successor Rate.”
3.6.3 Alternate Benchmark Rate. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, (a) after any such determination by Lender or receipt by Lender of any such notice described in Section 3.6.2(a) through (c), as applicable, if Lender determines that none of the LIBOR Successor Rates is available on or prior to the LIBOR Replacement Date, (ii) if the events or circumstances described in Section 3.6.2(d) have occurred but none of the LIBOR Successor Rates is available, or (iii) if the events or circumstances of the type described in Section 3.6.2(a) through (c) have occurred with respect to the LIBOR Successor Rate then in effect and Lender determines that none of the LIBOR Successor Rates is available, then in each case, Lender may amend this Agreement solely for the purpose of replacing LIBOR or any then current LIBOR Successor Rate in accordance with this Section at the end of any Interest Period, relevant interest payment date or payment period for interest calculated, as applicable, with another alternate benchmark rate giving due consideration to any evolving or then existing convention for similar U.S. dollar denominated commercial credit facilities for such alternative benchmarks and, in each case, including any Related Adjustments and any other mathematical or other adjustments to such benchmark giving due consideration to any evolving or then existing convention for similar U.S. dollar denominated commercial credit facilities for such benchmarks, which adjustment or method for calculating such adjustment shall be published on an information service as selected by Lender from time to time in its discretion and may be periodically updated. For the avoidance of doubt, any such proposed rate and adjustments shall constitute a LIBOR Successor Rate.
3.6.4 No Successor Rate. If, at the end of any Interest Period, relevant interest payment date or payment period for interest calculated, no LIBOR Successor Rate has been determined in accordance with Section 3.6.2 or 3.6.3 and the circumstances under Section 3.6.2(a) or (c) exist or the Scheduled Unavailability Date has occurred (as applicable), Lender will promptly so notify Borrower. Thereafter, (a) the obligation of Lender to make or maintain LIBOR Loans shall be suspended (to the extent of the affected LIBOR Loans, Interest Periods, interest payment dates or payment periods), and (b) the LIBOR component shall no longer be utilized in determining Base Rate, until the LIBOR Successor Rate has been determined in accordance with Section 3.6.2 or 3.6.3. Upon receipt of such notice, Borrowers may revoke any pending request for a Borrowing of, conversion to or continuation of LIBOR Loans (to the extent of the affected Loans, Interest Periods, interest payment dates or payment periods) or, failing that, will be deemed to have converted such request into a request for Base Rate Loans (subject to clause (b) above).
4. Dominion Account. Section 5.7.1 of the Loan Agreement is hereby deleted in its entirety and replaced with the following:
5.7.1 Dominion Account. During any Dominion Account Trigger Period, the ledger balance in the main Dominion Account as of the end of a Business Day shall be applied to the Obligations at the beginning of the next Business Day. If, a credit balance results from such application, it shall not accrue interest in favor of Borrower and shall be made available to Borrower as long as no Default or Event of Default exists. Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, monies and collateral proceeds obtained from an Obligor shall not be applied to repayment of its Excluded Swap Obligations. For purposes of calculating interest only, Lender will be deemed to have applied funds deposited to the Dominion Account or otherwise received by Lender to pay down the Obligations on the first Business Day following the Business Day of deposit to the Dominion Account or receipt by Lender.
5. Fixed Charge Coverage Ratio. Section 9.3.1 of the Loan Agreement is hereby deleted in its entirety and replaced with the following:
9.3.1 Fixed Charge Coverage Ratio. Maintain a Fixed Charge Coverage Ratio for each 12 month period of at least 1.0 to 1.0 while a FCCR Trigger Period is in effect, measured for the most recent period for which financial statements were delivered hereunder prior to a FCCR Trigger Period and each period ending thereafter until the FCCR Trigger Period is no longer in effect.

Borrower shall also provide to Lender, on or before the 20th day of each month, a detailed aged trial balance of all Accounts as of the end of the preceding month, specifying each Account’s Account Debtor name and address, amount, invoice date and due date, showing any discount, allowance, credit, authorized return or dispute, and including such proof of delivery, copies of invoices and invoice registers, copies of related documents, repayment histories, status reports and other information as Lender may reasonably request.

Borrower shall conduct quarterly (and on a more frequent basis if requested by Lender when an Event of Default exists) cycle counts of inventory consistent with historical practices, and shall provide to Lender a report based on each such inventory count promptly upon completion thereof but no later than 20 days following the end of such calendar quarter, together with such supporting information as Lender may reasonably request.
