Item 1.01. Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

 

On March 9, 2021, Daseke, Inc. (the “Company”), Daseke Companies, Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company (the “Borrower”), and the Company’s other domestic subsidiaries party thereto entered into the Refinancing Amendment (Amendment No. 3 to Term Loan Agreement), dated as of March 9, 2021 (“Amendment No. 3”), with the financial institutions party thereto as lenders, Credit Suisse AG, Cayman Islands Branch, as predecessor administrative agent and collateral agent (the “Predecessor Agent”), and JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A., as successor administrative agent and collateral agent. Amendment No. 3 amended certain terms of the Term Loan Agreement, dated as of February 27, 2017 (as amended, supplemented or otherwise modified from time to time prior to Amendment No. 3, the “Term Loan Agreement”), among the Company, the Borrower, the lenders from time to time party thereto and the Predecessor Agent.

 

Pursuant to Amendment No. 3, the Company prepaid, refinanced and replaced all of the issued and outstanding term loans, which had an aggregate principal amount of $484 million (the “Prior Term Loans”), under the Term Loan Agreement with $84 million in cash on hand and new replacement terms loans in an aggregate principal amount of $400 million (the “Replacement Term Loans”). The Replacement Term Loans have a scheduled maturity date of March 9, 2028 and an interest rate of LIBOR plus 4.00 percent (with a 0.75 percent LIBOR floor). The Prior Term Loans had a maturity date of February 27, 2024 and an interest rate of LIBOR plus 5.00 percent (with a 1.00 percent LIBOR floor). In addition, Amendment No. 3, among other things, (a) removed the Borrower’s total leverage financial covenant, which had been tested on a quarterly basis, (b) provided additional covenant flexibility in the form of increased debt, lien, investment, disposition and restricted payment baskets, and (c) replaced the Predecessor Agent with JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A. as the successor administrative agent and collateral agent.

 

The foregoing description of Amendment No. 3 is not complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to Amendment No. 3, a copy of which is filed herewith as Exhibit 10.1 and is incorporated herein by reference.
