IES Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ:IESC) Files An 8-K Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement


Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

On April10, 2017, IES Holdings, Inc., a Delaware corporation (IES
or the Company), entered into the Second Amended and Restated
Credit and Security Agreement (the Amended Credit Agreement), by
and among the Company, each of the other borrowers and guarantors
named therein and Wells Fargo Bank, National Association.

to the Amended Credit Agreement, the Companys maximum revolver
amount increased from $70million to $100million, and the maturity
date of the revolving credit facility was extended from August9,
2019 to August9, 2021. The Amended Credit Agreement also modified
the Companys financial covenants by, among other items,
implementing a new covenant that requires the Company to maintain
a minimum EBITDA (as defined in the Amended Credit Agreement)
that will be tested quarterly on a trailing twelve month basis;
increasing the minimum liquidity requirement applicable to the
Company from 12.5% to 30% of the maximum revolver amount; raising
the Companys required fixed charge coverage ratio (the FCCR) to
1.1:1.0 from 1.0:1.0; and requiring that the FCCR be tested
quarterly regardless of the Companys liquidity levels. In
addition, the Amended Credit Agreement modified the amount
available under the revolving credit facility by increasing the
availability related to progress-billed receivables that may be
included in the Companys borrowing base from $25million to
$40million, while reducing the credit on these receivables from
80% to 75%.

The Amended Credit Agreement also eliminated provisions related
to the structured overadvance amount and early termination
premium, increased the aggregate cap on Company investments in
certain securities from $10million to $20million, and permitted
the Company to invest up to $10million of that amount in
non-marketable securities, provided for the inclusion of certain
real estate in the borrowing base, and allowed for a one time
increase in restricted payments to permit the Company to make
stock repurchases in connection with satisfaction of employee tax
withholding obligations on performance-based phantom stock due to
vest in 2018. The Amended Credit Agreement continues to contain
other customary affirmative, negative and financial covenants as
well as events of default.

The representations and warranties of the borrowers party to the
Amended Credit Agreement were made only for purposes of that
agreement and as of specific dates therein and were solely for
the benefit of the lender party thereto. The Amended Credit
Agreement is a contractual document that establishes and governs
the legal relations among the parties thereto and is not intended
to be a source of factual, business, or operational information

warranties made by the borrowers party to the Amended Credit
Agreement may be subject to standards of materiality applicable
to the contracting parties that differ from those applicable to
investors. Accordingly, investors and security holders should not
rely on such representations and warranties as characterizations
of the actual state of facts or circumstances.

not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by
reference to the Amended Credit Agreement, which is attached
hereto as Exhibit 10.1 and incorporated herein by reference.
