Item 1.01. Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.
On December 29, 2009, Champion Home Builders Co. (“Champion Homes”), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Champion Enterprises, Inc. (the “Company”), the Company and certain additional subsidiaries of the Company received confirmation that it had received the necessary signatures to enforce a First Amendment to the Debtor-in-Possession Credit Agreement (the “First Amendment to the DIP Credit Agreement”) with Credit Suisse AG, Cayman Islands Branch (“Credit Suisse”), as Administrative Agent and Collateral Agent, and the lenders party thereto (the “Lenders”). The First Amendment to the DIP Credit Agreement is effective as of December 18, 2009, and permits the Debtors to draw an additional $5 million in New Money Loans, extends the date of the Sale Motion Milestone to January 8, 2010, and amends certain provisions relating to the Debtors’ reporting of financial information, among other things. The total amount of the DIP Credit Agreement remains unchanged.
On December 18, 2009, the Bankruptcy Court entered a Second Interim Order (modifying the November 17, 2009 First Interim Order that had permitted the Debtors to, among other things, draw $30.335 million of New Money Loans under the $40 million DIP Credit Agreement). The Second Interim Order, consistent with the First Amended DIP Credit Agreement provides, among other things, that the Debtors may draw (on an interim basis) an additional $5 million in New Money Loans and reschedules the hearing to approve the DIP Credit Agreement to January 6, 2010.
The foregoing description of the First Amendment to the DIP Credit Agreement is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the First Amendment to the DIP Credit Agreement, which is filed as Exhibit 10.1 hereto and is incorporated herein by reference.
