Item 8.01.

Other Items.

On September 30, 2020, Party City Holdings Inc. (“PCHI”), a wholly owned subsidiary of Party City Holdco Inc. (the “Company”), prepaid approximately $17.5 million of the term loans outstanding under the Term Loan Credit Agreement, dated as of August 19, 2015, as amended, restated, amended and restated, supplemented or otherwise modified from time to time (the “Term Loan Credit Agreement”), by and among PCHI, Party City Corporation, PC Intermediate Holdings, Inc., the subsidiaries from time to time party thereto, the lenders party thereto from time to time, and Deutsche Bank AG New York Branch, as administrative agent and collateral agent for the lenders party thereto. PCHI was required to make such prepayment in accordance with the terms of the Term Loan Credit Agreement in connection with the Company’s sale of its Canadian-based Party City stores in October 2019. The sale of Canadian-based Party City stores generated net cash proceeds of approximately $129.5 million (total cash proceeds generated were approximately $131.6 million). Consistent with the terms of Term Loan Credit Agreement, PCHI reinvested such proceeds in assets used or useful in the business of PCHI and its subsidiaries and entered into binding commitments to reinvest a certain portion of such proceeds by March 30, 2021, such that the total amount of the sale proceeds so reinvested or committed to be reinvested is approximately $97.0 million (of which approximately $84.8 million was invested or is committed to be reinvested towards capital expenditures and $12.2 million was invested or is committed to be reinvested towards permitted acquisitions). Under the Term Loan Credit Agreement, PCHI was permitted to deduct $15 million on account of a single asset sale transaction prior to prepaying any term loans from net cash proceeds of an asset sale. As of September 30, 2020, approximately $697.3 million remains outstanding under the Term Loan Credit Agreement.
