Item 1.01                                           Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

 

On September 21, 2016, Smart & Final Stores LLC (the “Borrower”), a California limited liability company and an indirect wholly owned subsidiary of Smart & Final Stores, Inc. (the “Company”), entered into a Fourth Amendment (the “Fourth Amendment”) to its First Lien Term Loan Credit Agreement, dated November 15, 2012 (as amended through the date hereof, the “Credit Agreement”).  Pursuant to the Fourth Amendment, the Borrower (i) increased the aggregate term facility commitments under the Credit Agreement (the “Term Facility”) by $30.1 million (the “Increased Capacity”) from $594.9 million to $625.0 million and (ii) extended the maturity of the Term Facility from November 15, 2019 to November 15, 2022.

 

In addition, the applicable margin rates under the Term Facility were increased by 0.25%.  As of September 21, 2016, after giving effect to the Fourth Amendment, the applicable margin rates are (i) 3.50% with respect to loans for which the Borrower has elected to have the adjusted LIBO rate apply and (ii) 2.50% with respect to loans for which the Borrower has elected to have the base rate apply.

 

The Company expects to utilize the Increased Capacity, net of fees and expenses attributable to the Fourth Amendment, to reduce the amounts due under its Revolving Credit Agreement, amended as of July 19, 2016, and for general corporate purposes.
