Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement, Termination of a Material


Item 1.01. Entry Into a Material Definitive Agreement

On July 12, 2013, Krispy Kreme Doughnut Corporation ("KKDC"), the principal operating subsidiary of Krispy Kreme Doughnuts, Inc. ("KKDI" and, together with KKDC and its other subsidiaries, the "Company") entered into a $40 million secured credit agreement (the "Credit Agreement") by and among KKDC, KKDI, the subsidiary guarantors party thereto (the "Subsidiary Guarantors"), the lenders named therein, and Wells Fargo Bank, National Association as administrative agent (the "Agent"), comprised of a $40 million revolving credit facility, which will include a $12.5 million sublimit for the issuance of letters of credit and a sublimit for swingline loans. The Company may request, at any time and from time to time, that the revolving credit facility be increased by an amount not to exceed $50 million.

The revolving credit facility is intended to be used to support outstanding letters of credit, which currently total approximately $9 million, with the balance available for working capital and other general corporate needs, if any.

At the Company's option, loans under the Credit Agreement shall bear interest at
(i) the Applicable Percentage (as defined below) plus the LIBOR Rate (as defined in the Credit Agreement) or (ii) the Applicable Percentage plus the Base Rate (as defined below). All swingline loans will bear interest at a rate equal to the Applicable Percentage plus the Base Rate. The LIBOR Rate is equal to the rate per annum calculated from the British Bankers Association LIBOR rate, as published by Reuters, for dollar deposits for interest periods of one, two, three or six months, as selected by the Company and as quoted by the Agent. The Base Rate equals to the higher of (a) the federal funds rate plus 0.50%, (b) the prime rate of the Agent, or (c) the LIBOR Rate plus 1.0%. The Applicable Percentage for LIBOR Rate loans ranges from 1.25% per annum to 2.15% per annum. The Applicable Percentage for Base Rate loans ranges from 0.25% per annum to 1.15% per annum. Interest for LIBOR Rate loans shall be payable at the end of each applicable interest period or at three-month intervals, if such interest period is six months or longer. Interest for Base Rate loans shall be payable quarterly in arrears. The Company will pay an undrawn commitment fee, an arrangement fee, an upfront fee, and a quarterly fee for any letters of credit issued under the agreement.

In connection with the Credit Agreement, KKDC, KKDI, the Subsidiary Guarantors and the Agent entered into a pledge and security agreement, dated as of July 12, 2013 (the "Security Agreement") and guaranty agreement, dated July 12, 2013 (the "Guaranty Agreement" and, together with the Credit Agreement and the Security Agreement, the "Credit Documents"). Pursuant to the Guaranty Agreement, KKDI and the Subsidiary Guarantors guaranteed the obligations of KKDC under the Credit Agreement. Pursuant to the Security Agreement, KKDI, KKDC and the Subsidiary Guarantors pledged their interests in all of their respective direct subsidiaries (including KKDC) and granted security interests in all of their personal property interests.

Under the Credit Agreement, the Company's accessible borrowing availability is subject to compliance with certain customary covenants, including financial covenants, among others, requiring a maximum consolidated leverage ratio (2.25 to 1.00) and a minimum fixed charge coverage ratio (1.30 to 1.00), as well as certain other covenants.

The Credit Agreement contains customary events of default that include, among others, non-payment of principal, interest or fees, violation of covenants, inaccuracy of representations and warranties, bankruptcy and insolvency events, material judgments, cross-defaults to material indebtedness and events constituting a change of control. The occurrence of an event of default will increase the applicable rate of interest by 2.0% and could result in the acceleration of KKDC's obligations under the credit facility and an obligation of KKDI and the Subsidiary Guarantors to pay the full amount of KKDC's obligations thereunder.


On July 15, 2013, KKDI issued a press release announcing the consummation of the Credit Facility and related transactions, which is attached as Exhibit 99.1 and is incorporated herein by reference.

The foregoing description of the Credit Documents and related transactions does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the complete text of the Credit Agreement, Security Agreement and Guaranty Agreement, which are attached hereto as Exhibits 10.1, 10.2 and 10.3, respectively, and which are incorporated herein by reference.

The Credit Documents have been included to provide shareholders with information regarding the terms of such documents.

The pledge and security agreement and the guaranty agreement related to the Prior Credit Agreement were terminated also. Upon termination of the Prior Credit Agreement, which included a $25 million revolving credit facility, the Company paid off the outstanding term loan balance of approximately $22 million, and commenced replacement of the $9 million of letters of credit issued under the Prior Credit Agreement with letters of credit issued under the Credit Agreement. All security interests granted and guarantees provided to secure the Prior Credit Agreement were released simultaneously with the termination of the Prior Credit Agreement.

Information contained in this Current Report on Form 8-K, other than historical information, should be considered forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995.

These statements are not statements of historical fact. Forward-looking statements involve risks and uncertainties that may cause our actual results, performance or financial condition to differ materially from the expectations of future results, performance or financial condition we express or imply in any forward-looking statements. The words "believe," 'forecast," "may," "could," "will," "should," "would," "anticipate," "estimate," "expect," "intend," "objective," "seek," "strive" or similar words, or the negative of these words, identify forward-looking statements. Factors that could contribute to these differences include, but are not limited to: the quality of Company and franchise store operations; our ability, and our dependence on the ability of our franchisees, to execute on our and their business plans; our relationships with our franchisees; our ability to implement our international growth strategy; our ability to implement our domestic small shop operating model; political, economic, currency and other risks associated with our international operations; the price and availability of raw materials needed to produce doughnut mixes and other ingredients, and the price of motor fuel; our relationships with wholesale customers; our ability to protect our trademarks and trade secrets; changes in customer preferences and perceptions; risks associated with competition; risks related to the food service industry, including food safety and protection of personal information; compliance with government regulations relating to food products and franchising; increased costs or other effects of new government regulations relating to healthcare benefits; and risks associated with implementation of new technology platforms.

New factors emerge from time to time, and it is not possible for management to predict all such factors or to assess the impact of each such factor on the Company. Any forward-looking statement speaks only as of the date on which such statement is made, and the Company does not undertake any obligation to update any forward-looking statement to reflect events or circumstances after the date on which such statement is made.
