Form 8-K for ZAIS FINANCIAL CORP.


4-Jun-2013

Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement, Creation of a Direct Financial O


Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement

On May 30, 2013, ZFC Trust ("ZFCT"), an indirect subsidiary of ZAIS Financial Corp. (the "Company"), entered into a master repurchase agreement with Citibank, N.A. ("Citi"), pursuant to which ZFCT may sell, and later repurchase, a trust certificate representing interests in residential mortgage loans (the "Trust Certificate") in an aggregate principal amount of up to $250 million, $150 million of which is committed (the "Loan Repo Facility"). The Loan Repo Facility will be used to fund purchases of the Company's target assets and the Company has utilized a portion of the Loan Repo Facility to fund a portion of the purchase price of a portfolio of residential mortgage loans with an unpaid principal balance of approximately $136.6 million. The Loan Repo Facility is committed for a period of 364 days and the obligations of ZFCT are fully guaranteed by the Company.

The principal amount paid by Citi for the Trust Certificate is based on a percentage of the lesser of the market value or the unpaid principal balance of such mortgage loans backing the Trust Certificate. Upon ZFCT's repurchase of a Trust Certificate sold to Citi under the Loan Repo Facility, ZFCT is required to repay Citi a repurchase amount based on the purchase price plus accrued interest. ZFCT is also required to pay Citi a commitment fee for the Loan Repo Facility, as well as certain other administrative costs and expenses in connection with Citi's structuring, management and ongoing administration of the Loan Repo Facility.

The Loan Repo Facility contains margin call provisions that provide Citi with certain rights in the event of a decline in the market value of the mortgage loans backing the purchased Trust Certificate, subject to a floor amount. Under these provisions, Citi may require ZFCT to transfer cash sufficient to eliminate any margin deficit resulting from such a decline.

The Loan Repo Facility requires the Company to maintain various financial and other covenants, which include (i) maintaining liquidity of not less than 3% of the Company's tangible net worth (the "Liquidity Baseline"), provided that no more than 25% of the Company's Liquidity Baseline may be comprised of unencumbered agency securities, (ii) avoiding declines in tangible net worth of more than 35% in any calendar year or more than 25% during any calendar quarter,
(iii) maintaining a maximum ratio of total liabilities to tangible net worth of 7:1, and (iv) achieving profitability for at least one of the previous two consecutive fiscal quarters, as of the end of each fiscal quarter.

In addition, the Loan Repo Facility contains events of default (subject to certain materiality thresholds and, in certain cases, grace periods), including payment defaults, breaches of covenants and/or certain representations and warranties, cross-defaults, guarantor defaults, material adverse changes, bankruptcy or insolvency proceedings and other events of default customary for this type of transaction. The remedies for such events of default are also customary for this type of transaction and include the acceleration of the principal amount outstanding under the Loan Repo Facility and the liquidation by Citi of the Trust Certificate and the related mortgage loans then subject to the Loan Repo Facility.

The foregoing description of the Loan Repo Facility and the related guaranty by the Company do not purport to be complete and are qualified in their entirety by reference to the full text of the master repurchase agreement and related guaranty, which have been filed with this Current Report on Form 8-K as Exhibits 10.1 and 10.2, respectively.
