Item 1.01. Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

On January 16, 2014, Coeur Mining, Inc. ("Coeur" or the "Company") and its subsidiaries, Coeur Alaska, Inc. and Coeur Rochester, Inc. (the "Borrowers"), entered into that certain Amendment No. 1 to Credit Agreement (the "Credit Agreement Amendment") to amend that certain Credit Agreement, dated as of August 1, 2012 (the "Credit Agreement"), by and among the Company, the Borrowers, the lenders party thereto and Wells Fargo Bank, N.A., as administrative agent. Pursuant to the Credit Agreement Amendment, among other things, the pricing of loans and undrawn commitments under the Credit Agreement was modified and certain modifications were made to the financial covenants and negative covenant provisions under the Credit Agreement.
Pursuant to the Credit Agreement Amendment, the range of interest rate margins applicable to any loans outstanding under the Credit Agreement was modified from a range of 2.25%-3.25% for LIBOR loans and 1.25%-2.25% for alternative base rate loans to a range of 2.25%-4.00% for LIBOR loans and 1.25%-3.00% for alternative base rate loans, in each case, with the margin determined by reference to the Company's ratio of consolidated debt to adjusted EBITDA, and the range of commitment fees payable in respect of the unused portion of the commitments under the Credit Agreement was modified from a range of 0.50%-0.75% to a range of 0.50%-1.00% of such unused portion, with the fee percentage determined by reference to the Company's ratio of consolidated debt to adjusted EBITDA. The financial covenants under the Credit Agreement were modified to require:
(i) the ratio of consolidated debt to adjusted EBITDA to be not greater than 3.25 to 1.00 as of December 31, 2013 or not greater than 4.75 to 1.00 in any fiscal period ending after October 1, 2015, (ii) the ratio of adjusted EBITDA to interest expense to be not less than 3.00 to 1.00 (subject to step-downs beginning with the fiscal quarter ending September 30, 2014), (iii) the tangible net worth to be not less than the greater of (x) $900 million and (y) 85% of the tangible net worth as of December 31 of the previous fiscal year plus 25% of net income, if positive, for the period after December 31 of such previous fiscal year to the date of measurement, or minus any net losses with limits of $50 million on any net losses in any fiscal year, (iv) minimum adjusted EBITDA to be at least $100 million for the most recently ended four fiscal quarter period with adjustments to such minimum beginning with the fiscal quarter ending December 31, 2014, (v) the ratio of consolidated secured debt to adjusted EBITDA, tested quarterly, to be not greater than 1.25 to 1.00, and (vi) the minimum cash balance, tested quarterly, to be not less than $50 million. The Credit Agreement Amendment also effects other changes to the negative covenants and related terms of the Credit Agreement, including changes affecting the ability of the Company to pay dividends and make share repurchases. The description of the Credit Agreement Amendment is a summary only and is qualified in its entirety by the terms of the Credit Agreement Amendment.

Item 2.02. Results of Operations and Financial Condition.

On January 16, 2014, the Company issued a press release announcing production results for the quarter and full year ended December 31, 2013 as well as an estimate of select financial results expected for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2013. As the Company has not completed its quarter-end fiscal close for its fourth quarter ended December 31, 2013, its analysis of the quarter, or its audit of the year ended December 31, 2013, the results presented in the press release are estimated and preliminary and, therefore, actual results may differ materially from these estimates.

Item 2.06. Material Impairments

In the course of preparing and reviewing the Company's 2013 financial statements, which includes an assessment of the recoverability of the Company's long-lived assets, the Company has concluded as of January 16, 2014 that generally accepted accounting principles require the Company to record a material impairment charge to the Company's mining properties at its Palmarejo and Kensington mines, primarily the result of sustained lower silver and gold prices.

The Company currently estimates the non-cash impairment charge will be approximately $770 million and expects that the impairment will result in no future cash expenditures.

Item 7.01. Regulation FD Disclosure.

On January 16, 2014, the Company issued a press release discussing guidance for its 2014 fiscal year. A copy of the Company's press release is attached as Exhibit 99.1 to this Current Report and is incorporated herein by reference. The press release shall be deemed furnished, not filed, for purposes of this Form 8-K.
