Item 1.01.Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

 

The information set forth below under Item 1.03 of this Current Report on Form 8-K regarding the Term Sheet (as defined below) is incorporated herein by reference.

 

Item 1.03.Bankruptcy or Receivership.

 

As previously disclosed, on May 27, 2020 (the “Petition Date”), Tuesday Morning Corporation (the “Company”) and certain of its direct and indirect subsidiaries (collectively with the Company, the “Debtors”) filed voluntary petitions (the “Chapter 11 Cases”) under Chapter 11 of the United States Bankruptcy Code (the “Bankruptcy Code”) in the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Northern District of Texas, Dallas Division (the “Bankruptcy Court”). The Chapter 11 Cases are being administered jointly under the caption “In re: Tuesday Morning Corporation, et. al., Case No. 20-31476-HDH-11.” The Debtors will continue to operate their businesses as “debtors-in-possession” under the jurisdiction of the Bankruptcy Court and in accordance with the applicable provisions of the Bankruptcy Code and orders of the Bankruptcy Court.

 

On June 3, 2020, the Debtors entered into a term sheet (the “Term Sheet”) with BRF Finance Co., LLC (“BRF Finance”), pursuant to which, and subject to the satisfaction of certain customary conditions, including the approval of the Bankruptcy Court, BRF Finance would agree to provide a debtor-in-possession delayed draw term loan facility in an amount not to exceed $25 million (the “DIP Term Facility”) secured by the owned real estate of the Debtors (the “Real Estate Assets”). Under the terms of the Term Sheet, the closing and initial extension of credit under the DIP Term Facility (which initial extension of credit is not to exceed $10 million) will be subject to satisfaction of certain conditions precedent, including execution and delivery of definitive loan documentation, entry of an interim order of the Bankruptcy Court authorizing the DIP Term Facility, receipt by BRF Finance of certain financial and tax information with respect to the Debtors, including a cash flow budget (the “Budget”), and receipt by BRF Finance of certain real estate appraisals and title reports with respect to the Real Estate Assets. Thereafter and so long as a final order of the Bankruptcy Court authorizing the DIP Term Facility has been entered and is in full force and effect, the Debtors would be entitled to make additional borrowings under the DIP Term Facility in minimum increments of $2.5 million subject to the satisfaction of certain additional conditions, including absence of defaults under the DIP Term Facility, delivery of notices of borrowing and the accuracy of the representations and warranties of the Debtor, in the definitive loan documentation for the DIP Term Facility.

 

Pursuant to the Term Sheet, proceeds of borrowings under the DIP Term Facility would be used by the Debtors to: (1) repay obligations of the Debtors under (a) the Senior Secured Super Priority Debtor-in-Possession Credit Agreement (the “DIP ABL Credit Agreement”) among the Debtors, JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A., as administrative agent, for itself and the other lenders party thereto, and (b) the Credit Agreement, dated August 18, 2015 and as previously amended, among the Debtors, JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A., in its capacity as administrative agent, swingline lender and issuing bank, and the lenders party thereto; (2) fund general working capital; and (3) fund operational expenses and restructuring expenses of the Debtors, in each case, to the extent permitted by the applicable orders of the Bankruptcy Court, the Budget and the definitive loan documents for the DIP Term Facility.

 

The DIP Term Facility is expected to include conditions precedent, representations and warranties, affirmative and negative covenants, and events of default customary for financings of this type and size, but in all events consistent with the terms of the DIP ABL Credit Agreement. The Debtors will be obligated to prepay amounts outstanding under the DIP Term Facility upon certain asset sales and casualty or condemnation events with respect to the Real Estate Assets.

 

2

 

 

Under the terms of the DIP ABL Credit Agreement and the Term Sheet, the lenders under the DIP ABL Credit Agreement will have a lien on the Real Estate Assets ranking junior to the rights of the lenders under the DIP Term Facility, with the lien priorities and enforcement rights with respect to the Real Estate Assets and the application of proceeds thereof to be governed by the terms of an intercreditor agreement.

 

The proposed DIP Term Facility would mature on the earliest of (1) the date that is 180 days after the Petition Date, (2) the date of consummation of a sale of all or substantially all assets of the Debtors, (3) the effective date of a plan of reorganization, or (4) the date the obligations of the Debtors under the DIP Term Facility are accelerated as a result of an event of default.

 

The foregoing summary of the proposed Real Estate DIP Facility is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Real Estate DIP Term Sheet, a copy of which is attached hereto as Exhibit 10.1 and incorporated by reference herein, and the terms of which are subject to Bankruptcy Court approval.

 

Item 2.03.Creation of a Direct Financial Obligation or an Obligation under an Off-Balance Sheet Arrangement of a Registrant.

 

The information set forth above under Item 1.03 of this Current Report on Form 8-K regarding the Term Sheet is incorporated herein by reference.

 

Item 3.01.Notice of Delisting or Failure to Satisfy a Continued Listing Rule or Standard; Transfer of Listing.

 

As previously disclosed, on May 27, 2020, the Company received a letter from the Listing Qualifications Department staff of The Nasdaq Stock Market (“Nasdaq”) notifying it that, as a result of the Chapter 11 Cases the Company’s common stock would be delisted from Nasdaq. On June 8, 2020, trading of the Company’s common stock on Nasdaq was suspended, and the delisting will be effective 10 days after Nasdaq files a Form 25 with the SEC.

 

On June 8, 2020, the Company’s common stock began trading on the OTC Pink marketplace under the symbol “TUESQ”. The Company can provide no assurance that the Company’s common stock will continue to trade on this market, whether broker-dealers will continue to provide public quotes of the Company’s common stock on this market, whether the trading volume of the Company’s common stock will be sufficient to provide for an efficient trading market or whether quotes for the Company’s common stock will continue on this market in the future.

 

The transition to over-the-counter markets will not affect the Company’s business operations or its SEC reporting requirements.

 

Item 7.01Regulation FD Disclosure.

 

The Company cautions that trading in the Company’s common stock during the pendency of the Chapter 11 Cases is highly speculative and poses substantial risks. Trading prices for the Company’s common stock may bear little or no relationship to the actual recovery, if any, by holders of the Company’s common stock in the Chapter 11 Cases.

Conditions Precedent to Closing, Loan Documentation and Other Information:  

The loan shall be evidenced by final definitive loan documentation consisting of, among other things, a loan agreement (the “DIP Term Loan Agreement”), mortgage(s), guaranty(ies), the Intercreditor Agreement and other documents, instruments and agreements as shall be required by the Term Agent and its counsel in their sole discretion (collectively, the “DIP Term Loan Documents”). The DIP Term Loan Documents will contain definitions, additional terms, conditions, covenants, representations and warranties, and events of default customary to the Term Agent’s agreements for similar debtor in possession credit facilities, but in all events consistent with the DIP ABL Facility documentation (provided, however, the DIP Term Loan Documents shall give regard to the different collateral securing the DIP Term Facility compared to the DIP ABL Facility), and all such loan documentation shall be in form and substance satisfactory to the Term Agent in its sole discretion and, to the extent required under the terms of the DIP ABL Facility, in the sole and absolute discretion of the ABL Agent. A condition to making the proposed loan will be receipt by the Term Agent and the Lenders of such information and documentation as shall be reasonably required by the Term Agent and the Lenders, including, without limitation, articles of incorporation, corporate resolutions, partnership agreements, operating agreements, surveys (to the extent currently in Debtors’ possession), UCC searches, property insurance, and, solely to the extent applicable, flood insurance. The form and substance of such information and documentation must be satisfactory to the Term Agent. In addition to the above, conditions precedent to closing and the initial draw of loans under the DIP Term Facility will include the following (the date of satisfaction of all such conditions precedent being referred to herein as the “Closing Date”):

 

(i)           At least three (3) business days prior to the hearing on the proposed Interim Order, the Term Agent shall have received a title report or other evidence reasonably satisfactory to the Term Agent evidencing that title to the Real Estate Assets is vested in the Debtors subject only to liens and encumbrances satisfactory to the Term Agent in its sole discretion.

 

(ii)         Term Agent’s receipt of the last three (3) years of annual financial statements and tax returns of the Debtors.

 

(iii)        Term Agent’s receipt of current interim financial statements of the Debtors.

(viii)      Payment of all reasonable and documented fees and out-of-pocket expenses that are due and payable on or prior to the Closing Date in connection with the transactions contemplated hereby.

 

(ix)         Entry of customary second day orders, which orders and all related pleadings shall be in form and substance satisfactory to the Term Agent.

 

Additionally, prior to funds under the DIP Term Facility being available to the DIP Borrower, the Bankruptcy Court shall have entered an order approving and authorizing the DIP Term Facility on an interim basis, all provisions thereof and the priorities and liens granted under Bankruptcy Code section 364(c) and (d), as applicable, in form and substance acceptable to the Term Agent (the “Interim Order”). For purposes hereof, the “Final Order” shall mean the final order of the Bankruptcy Court, in form and substance acceptable to the Term Agent, authorizing and approving the DIP Term Facility on a final basis.

 

Governing Law:   The Loan Documents and the interpretation, construction and enforcement of the terms thereof, shall be governed by the laws of the State of New York (or, with respect to the mortgage, Texas) and (to the extent applicable) the Bankruptcy Code.
Counterparts and Electronic Transmission:   This Term Sheet may be executed in any number of counterparts and by different parties hereto on separate counterparts, each of which when so executed and delivered, shall be deemed an original, and all of which, when taken together, shall constitute one and the same instrument.
