The Amended and Restated Credit Agreement extends the maturity date of loans outstanding under its previous credit facility to the earlier of March 25, 2022 or the demand of Standard Chartered.

The Amended and Restated Credit Agreement is subject to customary events of default and covenants, including minimum consolidated EBITDA and Consolidated Interest Coverage Ratio covenants for the second, third and fourth quarters of 2021. Borrowings under the Amended and Restated Credit Agreement will incur interest at either the alternate base rate or London Interbank Offered Rate (“LIBOR”) plus 2.70% per annum.
The obligations under the Amended and Restated Credit Agreement are unconditionally guaranteed, on a joint and several basis, by certain wholly-owned, existing and subsequently acquired or formed direct and indirect domestic subsidiaries of the Company, subject to customary exceptions. The obligations under the Amended and Restated Credit Agreement are secured by substantially all assets of the Company and the Company’s wholly-owned subsidiaries.
In connection with the Amended and Restated Credit Agreement, the Company also entered into an amended and restated shareholder’s loan agreement originally executed on December 28, 2020, between the Company and Weichai America Corp. (“Weichai”), the Company’s majority stockholder (the “First Amended and Restated Shareholder’s Loan Agreement”). The First Amended and Restated Shareholder’s Loan Agreement provides the Company with a $130.0 million subordinated loan facility that expires on April 25, 2022. Under the First Amended and Restated Shareholder’s Loan Agreement, Weichai is obligated to advance funds solely for purposes of repaying outstanding borrowings under the Amended and Restated Credit Agreement if the Company is unable to pay such borrowings. Any potential borrowings under the First Amended and Restated Shareholder’s Loan Agreement will bear interest at an annual rate equal to LIBOR plus 4.50% per annum. The First Amended and Restated Shareholder’s Loan Agreement is subject to customary events of default and covenants. The Company has covenanted to secure any amounts borrowed under Amended and Restated Shareholder’s Loan Agreement upon payment in full of all amounts outstanding under the Amended and Restated Credit Agreement.
