ITEM 1.01     Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement
On July 17, 2023, Red Robin Gourmet Burgers, Inc. (“Holdings”) and its wholly-owned subsidiary, Red Robin International, Inc. (together with Holdings and its subsidiaries, the “Company”), entered into Amendment No. 1 (the “Amendment”) to its Credit Agreement, dated as of March 4, 2022 (the “Existing Credit Agreement”), with the lenders party thereto and Fortress Credit Corp., as administrative agent and collateral agent. The Amendment amended the Existing Credit Agreement to remove the previously included $50.0 million aggregate cap (the “Prior Cap”) on sale-leasebacks of Company-owned real property. Pursuant to the Amendment, it also was agreed that (i) the Company may reinvest in the business within 360 days of receipt the net proceeds of sale-leasebacks to the extent that such proceeds are equal to or less than the amount of the Prior Cap and (ii) the Company shall make a mandatory prepayment with the net proceeds of sale-leasebacks to the extent that such proceeds exceed the amount of the Prior Cap. Additionally, the prepayment premium associated with any mandatory prepayments derived from the net proceeds of sale-leasebacks that exceed the Prior Cap is reduced by the Amendment to a premium equal to 50% of the prepayment premium otherwise applicable. The Amendment also made certain other conforming changes to the Existing Credit Agreement to effect the foregoing.
The foregoing summary of the Amendment is qualified in its entirety by reference to the text of the Amendment, a copy of which is filed as Exhibit 10.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and is incorporated herein by reference.
