Mistras Group, Inc. (NYSE:MG) Files An 8-K Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement
Item 1.01. Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement

On March 9, 2020, Mistras Group, Inc. (the “Company,” “we” or “us”) entered into the Second Amendment (the “Amendment”), dated March 9, 2020, to the Fifth Amended and Restated Credit Agreement (the “Credit Agreement”), dated December 13, 2018, with Bank of America, N.A., as agent for the lenders and a lender, and the other lenders under the Credit Agreement.
The Credit Agreement originally contained financial covenants requiring that we maintain a Funded Debt Leverage Ratio not exceeding 4.25- to-1 through December 31, 2018, reducing to a maximum permitted ratio of 3.50-to-1 as of March 31, 2020 and all quarterly periods thereafter, and a Fixed Charge Coverage Ratio of at least 1.25-to-1. The Amendment provides that the maximum Funded Debt Leverage Ratio is now 4.0 to 1 for the quarters ended December 31, 2019 through June 30, 2020; 3.75 to 1 for the quarter ending September 30, 2020; and 3.5 to 1 for the quarter ending December 31, 2020 and each quarterly period thereafter, and increased the maximum LIBOR margin from 2.0% to 2.25% if the Funded Debt Leverage Ratio exceeds 3.75 to 1.
The Amendment also provides that for acquisitions completed prior to April 1, 2021, (a) the aggregate consideration for all acquisitions made on or after March 9, 2020 and prior to April 1, 2021 shall not exceed $5,000,000, and (b) prior to the first of any such acquisition, the Company shall have demonstrated a Funded Debt Leverage Ratio of not greater than 3.0 to 1.0 for two consecutive fiscal quarters immediately prior to such acquisition. In addition, the Credit Agreement provides that beginning in 2020, the Company can elect to increase the maximum Funded Debt Leverage Ratio to 4.0 to 1 for four fiscal quarters immediately following the fiscal quarter in which the Company acquires another business, with the maximum permitted ratio reducing back to 3.5 to 1 in the fifth fiscal quarter following such acquisition. The Company can make this election twice during the term of the Credit Agreement. The Amendment requires that prior to the first time the Company makes such an election to increase the Funded Debt Leverage Ratio in connection with an acquisition, the Company must obtain the consent of lenders (in their sole discretion) holding at least 66-2/3% of the credit exposure under the Credit Agreement.
The foregoing is a summary of the Amendment and not a complete description of its terms and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Amendment, which is filed as Exhibit 10.1 to this Report and is incorporated herein by reference.
