Item 1.01Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.


On November 12, 2020, Clarus Corporation (the “Company”) and certain of its direct and indirect domestic subsidiaries (each, a “Borrower” and, collectively, the “Borrowers”) entered into Amendment No. 2 (the “Amendment No. 2”) to that certain Credit Agreement, dated May 3, 2019 and as amended by Amendment No. 1 dated May 28, 2019 (the “Amendment No. 1”), with JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A., as administrative agent, and the lenders from time to time party thereto (collectively, the “Credit Agreement”). Amendment No.1 contained modifications to the Credit Agreement that were not material to the Company.


The Credit Agreement as amended by Amendment No. 2, increased the maximum consolidated total leverage ratio permitted under the Credit Agreement to 4.00:1.00 from 3.00:1.00. In addition, Amendment No. 2 permits, among other things, the issuance by the Company of debt securities, that may be convertible into equity interests of the Company, in an aggregate principal amount of up to $125,000,000 (the “Notes”), and eliminates the requirement that the proceeds therefrom be used to prepay any revolving loans or term loans under the Credit Agreement. Amendment No. 2 allows for the regular payment of interest under the Notes and for cash settlement of fractional shares upon any conversion of the Notes. Amendment No. 2 does not, however, otherwise change the Company’s restrictions on making payments in respect of Company’s debt and equity. The Credit Agreement, as amended by Amendment No. 2, does not permit the Company to repay the Notes upon a fundamental change or event of default.


The foregoing summary of Amendment No. 2 does not purport to be complete and is subject to and qualified in its entirety by the full text of Amendment No. 2 which is included as Exhibit 10.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and incorporated herein by reference. Attached as Exhibit A to Amendment No. 2 and incorporated herein by reference, is a composite version of the Credit Agreement which has been conformed through Amendment No.1 and marked to reflect the revisions made to the Credit Agreement by Amendment No. 2.
