Item 1.01.     Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement

 

On September 5, 2019, JMP Holding LLC (the “Borrower”), a wholly owned subsidiary of JMP Group LLC (the “Company”), entered into an Amendment Number Six (the “Sixth Amendment”) to that certain Second Amended and Restated Credit Agreement dated April 30, 2014 among the Borrower, the lenders from time to time party thereto (the “Lenders”) and City National Bank, a national banking association (“CNB”), as administrative agent for the Lenders (as amended, the “Credit Agreement”).

 

The Sixth Amendment modified (a) the definition of “Debt” to provide that for purposes of calculating the Senior Leverage Ratio, the Liquidity to Debt Service Ratio and the ratio of Net Asset Value to Total Funded Debt (as such terms are defined in the Credit Agreement), the term “Debt” will not include the outstanding principal amount of any debt securities issued by the Company or any of its subsidiaries to the extent that any such debt securities have been discharged or irrevocably called for redemption and (b) the definition of “Fixed Charges” to provide that “Fixed Charges” will not include the interest expense accruing on any debt securities issued by the Company or any of its subsidiaries to the extent that any such debt securities have been discharged or irrevocably called for redemption.

 

The Sixth Amendment also modified the definition of “Refinancing Debt” (a) to clarify that in connection with a refinancing of Senior Notes issued by the Company or its wholly owned subsidiary, JMP Group Inc., only the principal portion of the debt resulting from the refinancing that exceeds the sum of (i) the principal amount of the Senior Notes being refinanced, plus (ii) accrued interest, premiums, underwriting discounts and any other transaction fees or expenses payable in connection with the refinancing, plus (iii) an additional amount as may be necessary to round the face amount of the debt resulting from the refinancing (if such debt consists of Senior Notes) upward to the nearest increment of $5 million (the sum of the amounts in (i), (ii) and (iii), the “Additional Amount”) will not constitute “Refinancing Debt” and (b) to provide that in connection with a refinancing of the 8.00% Senior Notes due 2023 issued by JMP Group Inc. (the “2013 Notes”), of which $25 million is currently outstanding, the Additional Amount may be increased by $6 million such that up to $36 million of debt incurred to refinance the 2013 Notes will constitute “Refinancing Debt”.

 

The descriptions of the Sixth Amendment contained in this Current Report on Form 8-K do not purport to be complete and are qualified in their entirety by reference to the underlying agreement, attached hereto as an exhibit and incorporated into this Current Report on Form 8-K by reference.

AMENDED AND RESTATED CREDIT AGREEMENT

 

This AMENDMENT NUMBER SIX TO SECOND AMENDED AND RESTATED CREDIT AGREEMENT (this “Amendment”), dated as of September 5, 2019, is entered into by and between JMP HOLDING LLC, formerly known as JMP Group LLC, a Delaware limited liability company (“Borrower”), the lenders from time to time party to the below-defined Credit Agreement (together with their respective successors and assigns, each a “Lender” and collectively, the “Lenders”) and CITY NATIONAL BANK, a national banking association (“CNB”), as the administrative agent for the Lenders, (in such capacity, together with its successors and assigns in such capacity, the “Agent”) , and in light of the following:

 

W I T N E S S E T H

 

WHEREAS, Borrower, Agent and the Lenders are party to that certain Second Amended and Restated Credit Agreement, dated as of April 30, 2014 (as amended and in effect immediately prior to the effectiveness of this Amendment, the “Existing Credit Agreement”; the Existing Credit Agreement, as amended by this Amendment, is referred to herein as the “Credit Agreement”);

 

WHEREAS, Borrower has requested that Agent and the Lenders make certain amendments to the Existing Credit Agreement; and

 

WHEREAS, upon the terms and conditions set forth herein, Agent and the Lenders are willing to accommodate Borrower’s requests.

 

NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the foregoing and the mutual covenants herein contained, and for other good and valuable consideration, the receipt and sufficiency of which are hereby acknowledged, the parties hereby agree as follows:

 

1.     DEFINITIONS. Capitalized terms used herein and not otherwise defined herein shall have the meanings ascribed to them in the Credit Agreement.

 

2.     AMENDMENTS TO EXISTING CREDIT AGREEMENT. On the terms and subject to the conditions of this Amendment:

 

(a)      The definition of “Debt” in Section 1.1 of the Credit Agreement is hereby amended to add the following sentence to the end thereof:

 

“Notwithstanding the foregoing, for purposes of calculating the Senior Leverage Ratio, the Liquidity to Debt Service Ratio and the ratio of Net Asset Value to Total Funded Debt as of any date, the term “Debt” shall not include the outstanding principal amount of any debt securities issued by Ultimate Parent or any of its Subsidiaries to the extent that, no later than seven Business Days after such date (i) the obligations of the issuer of such debt securities (and any guarantor thereof) under the indenture governing such debt securities shall have been discharged in accordance with the terms of such indenture, (ii) the issuer of such debt securities shall have delivered (or the indenture trustee under the applicable indenture shall have delivered on such issuer’s behalf) to the holders of such debt securities an irrevocable notice of redemption with respect to all of such debt securities for redemption on a date within 35 days of such notice of redemption and such debt securities are actually redeemed within such 35 day period or (iii) funds have been delivered to the trustee of the related indenture or deposited into an escrow account for the purposes of redeeming or discharging such debt securities.”

 

1

 

 

(b)     The definition of “Fixed Charges” in Section 1.1 of the Credit Agreement is hereby amended to add the following sentence to the end thereof:

 

“Notwithstanding the foregoing, the term “Fixed Charges” shall not include Interest Expense accruing on any debt securities from and after the date that (i) the obligations of the issuer of such debt securities (and any guarantor thereof) under the indenture governing such debt securities shall have been discharged in accordance with the terms of such indenture, (ii) the issuer of such debt securities shall have delivered (or the indenture trustee under the applicable indenture shall have delivered on such issuer’s behalf) to the holders of such debt securities an irrevocable notice of redemption with respect to all of such debt securities for redemption on a date within 35 days of such notice of redemption and such debt securities are actually redeemed within such 35 day period or (iii) funds have been delivered to the trustee of the related indenture or deposited into an escrow account for the purposes of redeeming or discharging such debt securities.”

 

(c)     The definition of “Refinancing Debt” in Section 1.1 of the Credit Agreement is hereby amended and restated to read as follows:

 

““Refinancing Debt” means refinancings, renewals, or extensions of Debt to the extent that: (a) the terms and conditions of such refinancings, renewals, or extensions do not materially impair the prospects of repayment of the Obligations by Borrower or materially impair Borrower’s creditworthiness, (b) such refinancings, renewals, or extensions do not result in an increase in the principal amount of the Debt so refinanced, renewed, or extended (except by an amount (such amount with respect to any refinancing, renewal or extension, the “Additional Amount”) equal to the sum of (x) the amount of any accrued interest, premiums, underwriting discounts and any other transaction fees or expenses payable in connection with such refinancing, renewal or extension, plus, (y) with respect a refinancing of the JMP Notes only, such additional amount as may be necessary to round the face amount of such Debt upward to the nearest increment of $5,000,000, plus (z) with respect to a refinancing of the 2013 Notes only, so long as Ultimate Parent is the issuer of Debt with respect to such refinancing of the 2013 Notes, an additional amount not to exceed $6,000,000), (c) such refinancings, renewals, or extensions do not result in an increase in the interest rate with respect to the Debt so refinanced, renewed, or extended above the then-prevailing market rate with respect to similar Debt issued under similar circumstances by similarly situated companies, (d) such refinancings, renewals, or extensions do not result in a shortening of the average weighted maturity of the Debt so refinanced, renewed, or extended, nor are they on terms or conditions that, taken as a whole, are materially more burdensome or restrictive to Borrower, (e) if the Debt that is refinanced, renewed, or extended was subordinated in right of payment to the Obligations, then the terms and conditions of the refinancing, renewal, or extension must include subordination terms and conditions that are at least as favorable to Agent as those that were applicable to the refinanced, renewed, or extended Debt, and (f) the Debt that is refinanced, renewed, or extended is not recourse to any Person that is liable on account of the Obligations other than (x) those Persons which were obligated with respect to the Debt that was refinanced, renewed, or extended and (y) Ultimate Parent. If any refinancing, renewal or extension of Debt satisfies all of the requirements for Refinancing Debt other than the requirement that the amount of such refinancing, renewal or extension does not result in an increase in the principal amount of the Debt so refinanced, renewed, or extended by more than the Additional Amount, then (1) the amount of Debt incurred in connection with such refinancing, renewal or extension of Debt equal to the sum of (x) the principal amount of the Debt so refinanced, renewed, or extended plus (y) the Additional Amount shall constitute Refinancing Debt and (2) the amount of Debt incurred in connection with such refinancing, renewal or extension of Debt in excess of the sum of (x) the principal amount of the Debt so refinanced, renewed, or extended plus (y) the Additional Amount shall not constitute Refinancing Debt.”
