The Amendment amends the 2018 Credit Agreement to provide an additional exception to the limitation on the Company’s ability to make Restricted Payments (as defined in the 2018 Credit Agreement), which new exception permits the Company to repurchase shares of its common stock as long as the Company is not in default before and after giving effect to such repurchases and the aggregate amount of payments made by the Company for all such repurchases during any fiscal year does not exceed $10.0 million. The Amendment also adds to the Credit Agreement customary language related to the QFC stay rules. The Amendment does not otherwise modify the 2018 Credit Agreement. A copy of the Amendment is attached hereto as Exhibit 10.1 and is incorporated herein by reference. The foregoing description of the Amendment is qualified in its entirety by the express language set forth in the Amendment as attached hereto.

The Company held its Annual Meeting of Shareholders on March 12, 2020. The shareholders:

Repurchases under the program may be made in the open market or through privately-negotiated transactions from time to time through March 11, 2022, subject to applicable laws and regulations.
