Item 1.01  Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

 

On August 25, 2017, HD Supply, Inc. (the “ Company ”) entered into the Second Supplemental Indenture (the “ Second Supplemental Indenture ”) by and among the Company, the subsidiary guarantors signatory thereto, and Wells Fargo Bank, National Association (the “ Trustee ”), which amends and supplements the Indenture, dated as of April 11, 2016, as amended and supplemented by the First Supplemental Indenture, dated as of April 11, 2016 (together, the “ Indenture ”), in each case, among the Company, the subsidiary guarantors signatory thereto, and the Trustee.

 

The Second Supplemental Indenture effects certain Proposed Amendments (as defined below) to the Indenture pertaining to the Company’s 5.75% Senior Notes due 2024 (CUSIP Nos. 40415R AR6 and U4047C AJ6) (the “ Notes ”). Holders of a majority in aggregate principal amount of the outstanding Notes consented to the Proposed Amendments.

 

The Proposed Amendments (a) amend the definition of “Permitted Payments” contained in the Indenture to permit an additional category of Permitted Payments permitting Restricted Payments (as defined in the Indenture) at any time in an aggregate amount not to exceed (x) $500,000,000 and (y) thereafter, upon full use of such capacity set forth in clause (x), an additional amount, if any, such that, after giving pro forma effect to such Restricted Payment, the Company’s Consolidated Leverage Ratio (as defined in the Second Supplemental Indenture) does not exceed 3.00 to 1.00; (b) increase the interest rate for the Notes to 7.00% per annum commencing April 15, 2019, to the extent the Notes remain outstanding after April 15, 2019; (c) amend the definition of “Net Available Cash” contained in the Indenture to provide that the net proceeds from the sale of the Waterworks business unit consummated on August 1, 2017 (other than proceeds to be applied to redeem the Company’s 2021 Notes (as defined in the Second Supplemental Indenture)) shall be excluded and accordingly, the Company will not be required to apply the remaining net proceeds in accordance with the provision of the “Sale of Assets” covenant of the Indenture and (d) amend the definition of “Consolidated EBITDA” contained in the Indenture to provide that while the Company may continue to include in the calculation thereof projected cost savings, it may only do so with respect to those realized as a result of actions taken or to be taken in connection with a purchase of assets from, or a sale of assets to, a third party (excluding the Waterworks Sale (as defined in the Second Supplemental Indenture)) (collectively, the “ Proposed Amendments ”).

 

The Second Supplemental Indenture is attached hereto as Exhibit 4.1. The foregoing description of the Second Supplemental Indenture is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Second Supplemental Indenture, which is incorporated herein by reference.
