On May 12, 2015, 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 Third Amendment (the “Third Amendment”) to its First Lien Term Loan Agreement, dated November 15, 2012.  Pursuant to the Third Amendment, the Borrower’s term loan bears interest at a rate per annum equal to, (a) to the extent the Borrower has elected to have the adjusted London Interbank Offered (“LIBO”) rate apply to the term loan, the applicable adjusted LIBO rate (defined as the greater of (x) the LIBO rate for the interest period selected by the Borrower, as adjusted for statutory reserves, and (y) 0.75%) plus the applicable margin of 3.25%, or, (b) to the extent the Borrower has elected to have the base rate apply to the term loan, the applicable base rate (defined as the greatest of (x) the federal funds rate plus 0.50%, (y) the “prime rate” announced by the Wall Street Journal and (z) the adjusted LIBO rate for an interest period of one month plus 1.00%) plus the applicable margin of 2.25%.

 

In connection with the Third Amendment, on May 13, 2015, the Borrower entered into an amendment to its outstanding interest rate swap agreement to change the fixed LIBO rate component thereunder to 1.47675% and the floor rate thereunder to 0.75%, effective June 30, 2015.
