Impinj, Inc. Enters into a First Amendment to Third Amended and Restated Loan and Security Agreement and Silicon Valley Bank

On March 5, 2018, Impinj, Inc., a Delaware corporation entered into a First Amendment to Third Amended and Restated Loan and Security Agreement, by and between the Company and Silicon Valley Bank. The Amendment amends certain provisions of the company's Third Amended and Restated Loan and Security Agreement, dated as of April 24, 2017, to, among other things, extend the maturity date of the revolving credit facility to March 5, 2020, and provide for a new $20.0 million term loan, the proceeds of which refinance $7.9 million outstanding under the existing term loan and $1.1 million of equipment loans outstanding under the Loan Agreement. The remaining term loan proceeds are available for general corporate purposes. The new term loan will amortize over 36 months, beginning on April 1, 2019, following an initial interest-only period, and mature on March 1, 2022. The Company retains the ability to prepay the term loan at any time, subject to a prepayment fee equal to 2.0% of the outstanding principal amount if prepaid on or before March 5, 2019, or 1.0% of the outstanding principal amount if prepaid after March 5, 2019, but on or before March 5, 2020. The Amendment also amends the financial covenants under the Loan Agreement such that if the Company's cash in accounts maintained with Lender, plus availability under the Loan Agreement's revolving credit facility, falls below $60.0 million for the period of time beginning on March 5, 2018 and ending on December 31, 2018, or $55.0 million for the period of time beginning on January 1, 2019 and at all times thereafter, the Company must comply with an amended covenant to not exceed maximum adjusted EBITDA loss thresholds that vary by period and the existing minimum liquidity ratio, each determined in accordance with the terms of the Loan Agreement.
