Build-A-Bear Workshop, Inc. (NYSE:BBW) Files An 8-K Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement
Item 1.01 of this Current Report on Form 8-K, U.S. Bank and the Company agreed to amend the Credit Agreement. There is currently a $1.0 million letter of credit issued under the Credit Agreement. The Company does not expect to otherwise access the Credit Agreement prior to its expiration on September 30, 2020 because (i) the Company anticipates that its cash balance in North America will be more than $5 million and (ii) given its trailing twelve-month financial results and anticipated operating losses in its second fiscal quarter due to ongoing store closures and normal seasonal fluctuations, the Company does not expect to meet the fixed charge coverage ratio that is required as a precondition to obtain additional borrowings under the amended Credit Agreement, and therefore would not meet the conditions described in items (i) and (ii) in the 9th bullet of Item 1.01 above. Nevertheless, the Company believes that its current cash balance, along with the actions taken as discussed in its Annual Report on Form 10-K, filed April 16, 2020, will provide it with sufficient liquidity for the next 12 months. The Company continues to explore other options to access alternative liquidity sources which may include other lenders, various government assistance programs and monetization of existing Company assets, including the Company-owned warehouse in Ohio and inventory, and will continue to consider other actions to improve the Company’s cash position, including but not limited to implementing further selling, general and administrative expense reductions, foregoing or delaying capital expenditures, and working with landlords to negotiate lease structure and payment terms.
