Item 1.01
Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

Tiptree Inc. (“Tiptree”) and Tiptree Operating Company, LLC (“Borrower”), the subsidiary through which Tiptree conducts its operations, entered into a Credit Agreement, dated as of February 21, 2020 with the lenders party thereto from time to time and Fortress Credit Corp. (“Fortress”), as administrative agent, collateral agent and lead arranger (the “Credit Agreement”).

Borrower borrowed $125 million under the Credit Agreement to, among other things, refinance the Borrower’s Old Credit Facility (as defined in Item 1.02 below) and to fund working capital and general corporate purposes. The principal of, and all accrued and unpaid interest on, all loans under the Credit Agreement will mature on the fifth anniversary of the closing date of the Credit Agreement. Loans under the Credit Agreement bear interest at a variable rate per annum equal to the LIBOR rate (with a minimum LIBOR rate of 1.00%), plus a margin of 6.75% per annum. The principal amounts of the loans are to be repaid in consecutive quarterly installments.

The obligations under the Credit Agreement and other documents executed in connection therewith are guaranteed by Borrower (other than with respect to its own obligations), Tiptree, Tiptree Insurance Holdings, LLC, Caroline Holdings LLC, Reliance Holdings, LLC, Tiptree Asset Management Company, LLC, Tiptree Marine LLC, Tiptree Direct Holdings LLC, Tiptree Warranty Holdings, LLC and (x) each of the Borrower’s subsequently acquired or organized direct wholly-owned first tier domestic subsidiaries that is a holding company for investments, assets, operations or business lines and any other subsidiary of the Borrower that guarantees the payment of any other material indebtedness of the Borrower or any Guarantor and (y) such other persons as required pursuant to terms of the Credit Documents (collectively, the “Guarantors”). The obligations under the Credit Agreement and other documents executed in connection therewith are secured by first priority liens on substantially all of the assets (whether now owned or hereafter acquired) of Borrower and each other Guarantor (subject to certain customary exceptions).

The Credit Agreement contains various customary affirmative and negative covenants of Tiptree, the Borrower and the other Guarantors (subject to customary exceptions), including, but not limited to, limitations on indebtedness, liens, investments and acquisitions, negative pledges, junior payments, conduct of business, transactions with affiliates, dispositions of assets, prepayment of certain indebtedness and limits on guarantees by subsidiaries of Borrower’s and the Guarantors’ indebtedness. The Credit Agreement also contains a financial covenant which provides that Tiptree will not permit its Corporate Leverage Ratio (as defined in the Credit Agreement) as of the last day of any fiscal quarter to be greater than 4.5:1.00 in 2020 and 2021, 4.25:1:00 after March 31, 2022, 4:00:1:00 after March 31, 2023 and 3.75:1:00 after March 31, 2024.
The Credit Agreement also requires customary mandatory repayment provisions (subject to customary exceptions) and requires that net cash proceeds from the sale by Tiptree and certain of its subsidiaries of capital stock of Invesque Inc. be applied to prepay the loans until the outstanding principal amount of loans is $62.5 million, with remaining proceeds subject to reinvestment rights. Prepayments, whether mandatory or voluntary, reduce future scheduled amortization payments in the order they come due. The Credit Agreement also requires the payment of a prepayment fee upon the occurrence of, among other things, certain optional prepayments of the loans and certain mandatory prepayment of the loans.

The Credit Agreement contains events of default customary for similar financings with corresponding grace periods, including failure to pay any principal or interest when due, failure to perform or observe covenants, breaches of representations and warranties, certain cross defaults, certain bankruptcy related events, monetary judgment defaults and a change of control. Upon the occurrence of an event of default, the outstanding obligations under the Credit Agreement may be accelerated and become immediately due and payable.

The foregoing description of the Credit Agreement, does not purport to be complete, and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Credit Agreement, which is attached to this Current Report on Form 8-K as Exhibit 10.1 and is incorporated herein by reference.
