Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

On July 7, 2021, Transcat, Inc. (the “Company”) entered into the Second Amended and Restated Credit Facility Agreement (the “Second Agreement”) with Manufacturers and Traders Trust Company (“M&T”), that amended and restated in its entirety the Company’s Amended and Restated Credit Facility Agreement dated as of October 30, 2017, as amended by Amended and Restated Credit Facility Agreement Amendment 1 dated December 10, 2018 and Amended and Restated Credit Facility Agreement Amendment 2 dated May 18, 2020 (as amended, the “First Agreement”).

The Second Agreement increased the Revolving Credit Commitment from $40.0 million to $80.0 million, with a Letter of Credit subfacility increased from $2.0 million to $10.0 million, and extended the term of the Revolving Credit Commitment to June 2026. The Second Agreement amended the definition of Applicable Margin (formerly Applicable Rate under the First Agreement), which is based upon the Company’s then current Leverage Ratio and is used to determine interest charges on outstanding and unused borrowings under the Revolving Credit Facility; the amendments reduced the Applicable Margins payable at the two highest Leverage Ratio levels. The Second Agreement also amended the definition of Permitted Acquisitions, that is, Acquisitions which are permitted under, and may be financed with proceeds of, the Revolving Credit Facility, including increasing the aggregate purchase price for Acquisitions consummated in any fiscal year from $1.0 million to $65 million during the current fiscal year and $50 million during any subsequent fiscal year, and adding an aggregate purchase price of $40.0 million for Acquisitions consummated at any time during the term of the Second Agreement related to businesses with a principal place of business located in the United Kingdom or the European Union.

In addition, the Second Agreement provides that, assuming no event of default, Restricted Payments up to $25.0 million (increased from $10.0 million in the First Agreement) in the aggregate and $10.0 million (increased from $3.0 million in the First Agreement) in any single fiscal year may be used by the Company to repurchase its shares and pay dividends. The Second Agreement modified the Leverage Ratio and Fixed Charge Coverage Ratio covenants with which the Company is required to comply. The Second Agreement also reduced the LIBOR floor from 1% to 0.25% and included a mechanism for adoption of a different benchmark rate in the event LIBOR is discontinued. Pursuant to the Second Agreement, the fixed interest rate on Term Loan B was reduced from 4.14% to 3.90%.

Terms used herein and otherwise not defined have the meanings given them in the Second Agreement. The foregoing summary of the Second Agreement does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Second Agreement filed as Exhibit 10.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K.
