Item 1.01    Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

On September 20, 2021, a subsidiary (the “Subsidiary”) of Angel Oak Mortgage, Inc. (the “Company”) entered into a $400.0 million repurchase facility with Barclays Bank PLC (“Barclays”) through the execution of a Master Repurchase Agreement (the “Master Repurchase Agreement”) between the Subsidiary and Barclays. Pursuant to the Master Repurchase Agreement, the Subsidiary may sell certain securities to Barclays representing whole loan assets and later repurchase such securities from Barclays. The Master Repurchase Agreement expires on September 20, 2022, unless terminated earlier pursuant to the terms of the Master Repurchase Agreement.
The amount expected to be advanced by Barclays is generally in line with other similar agreements that the Company or one of its subsidiaries has entered into, which is a percentage of the unpaid principal balance or market value of the asset depending on the type of underlying asset. Similarly, the interest rate on any outstanding balance under the Master Repurchase Agreement that the Subsidiary is required to pay Barclays is generally in line with other similar agreements that the Company or one of its subsidiaries has entered into, where the interest rate is equal to the sum of (1) a spread ranging from 1.70% to 3.50%, determined based on the type of underlying asset, and (2) one-month or three-month LIBOR. Additionally, Barclays is under no obligation to purchase the securities we offer to sell to them.
The obligations of the Subsidiary under the Master Repurchase Agreement are guaranteed by the Company pursuant to a Guaranty (the “Guaranty”) executed contemporaneously with the Master Repurchase Agreement. In addition, and similar to other repurchase agreements that the Company has entered into, the Company is subject to various financial and other covenants, including those relating to (1) declines in tangible net worth; (2) a maximum ratio of indebtedness to tangible net worth; and (3) minimum liquidity.
In addition, the Master Repurchase Agreement and Guaranty contain events of default (subject to certain materiality thresholds and grace periods), including payment defaults, breaches of covenants and/or certain representations and warranties, cross-defaults, insolvency and other events of default customary for this type of transaction. The remedies for such events of default are also customary for this type of transaction and include the acceleration of the amounts outstanding under the Master Repurchase Agreement and Barclays’ right to liquidate the purchased securities then subject to the Master Repurchase Agreement.
The Subsidiary is also required to pay certain customary fees to Barclays and to reimburse Barclays for certain costs and expenses incurred in connection with Barclays’s management and ongoing administration of the Master Repurchase Agreement.
A copy of the Master Repurchase Agreement is attached hereto as Exhibit 10.1 and incorporated herein by reference. A copy of the Guaranty is attached hereto as Exhibit 10.2 and incorporated herein by reference.

Item 2.03    Creation of a Direct Financial Obligation or an Obligation under an Off-Balance Sheet Arrangement of a Registrant.
