Item 1.01
Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.
On November 24, 2020, Aegion Corporation (the “Company”) executed a fifth amendment (the “Fifth Amendment”) to its current credit agreement, dated October 30, 2015, as previously amended (the “Credit Facility”). The Fifth Amendment modifies the Credit Facility’s applicable financial covenant requirements to reflect the following:
 The maximum consolidated financial leverage ratio (comparing consolidated funded indebtedness to amended Credit Facility defined consolidated EBITDA) is not to exceed 3.50 to 1.00 at December 31, 2020, 3.25 to 1.00 at March 31, 2021, and not more than 3.00 to 1.00 beginning with the quarter ending June 30, 2021; and
 The minimum permitted consolidated fixed charge coverage ratio (comparing amended Credit Facility defined consolidated EBITDA to amended Credit Facility defined fixed charges) is not less than 1.15 to 1.00 at December 31, 2020 and will increase to 1.20 to 1.00 at March 31, 2021 and 1.25 to 1.00 beginning with the quarter ending June 30, 2021.
The Fifth Amendment also, among other things, (a) reduces certain interest rates applicable to revolving loans, the initial term loan, swing line loans, letters of credit and the commitment fee; (b) modifies the calculation of consolidated EBITDA; (c) modifies the conditions under which permitted acquisitions may be made; (d) modifies the terms on which the credit agreement will transition to a successor to the LIBOR rate; (e) modifies the terms on which restricted payments may be made; and (f) implements certain technical and other amendments.
The Company paid approximately $201,250 for arranging fees, up-front lending fees and other expenses associated with the Fifth Amendment.
The foregoing description of the Fifth Amendment is not intended to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Fifth Amendment, a copy of which is attached as Exhibit 10.1, and is incorporated herein by reference.
