Third Lien Credit Agreement

On December 11, 2020, Vince entered into a $20 million subordinated credit facility (the “Third Lien Credit Facility”) to a credit agreement (the “Third Lien Credit Agreement”), dated December 11, 2020, by and among Vince, as the borrower, SK Financial Services, LLC (“SK Financial”), as agent, and other lenders from time to time party thereto.  The Third Lien Credit Facility matures on the earlier of (a) February 21, 2024, (b) the date that is 360 days after the “Maturity Date” under the Revolving Credit Facility so long as the loans under the Term Loan Facility remain outstanding and (c) 180 days after the “Maturity Date” under the Term Loan Facility and the Revolving Credit Facility.

SK Financial is an affiliate of Sun Capital Partners, Inc. (“Sun Capital”), whose affiliates own approximately 72% of the Company’s common stock.  The Third Lien Credit Facility was reviewed and approved by the Special Committee of the

Company’s Board of Directors, consisting solely of directors not affiliated with Sun Capital, which was represented by independent legal advisors.

Interest on loans under the Third Lien Credit Facility is payable in kind at a rate equal to the LIBOR rate (subject to a floor of 1.0%) plus applicable margins subject to a pricing grid based on minimum Consolidated EBITDA (as defined in the Third Lien Credit Agreement).  During the continuance of certain specified events of default, interest may accrue on the loans under the Third Lien Credit Facility at a rate of 2.0% in excess of the rate otherwise applicable to such amount.  The Third Lien Credit Facility contains representations, covenants and conditions that are substantially similar to those under the Term Loan Facility, except the Third Lien Credit Facility does not contain any financial covenant.  A closing fee of $0.4 million is payable in kind under the Third Lien Credit Facility.  All obligations under the Third Lien Credit Facility are guaranteed by the Company, Vince Intermediate Holding, LLC and the Company’s existing material domestic restricted subsidiaries as well as any future material domestic restricted subsidiaries and are secured on a junior basis relative to the Revolving Credit Facility and the Term Loan Facility by a lien on substantially all of the assets of the Company, Vince Intermediate Holding, LLC, Vince and the Company’s existing material domestic restricted subsidiaries as well as any future material domestic restricted subsidiaries.
