Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement, Financial Statements and Exhibi


Item 1.01 Entry Into a Material Definitive Agreement
As previously disclosed, on August 30, 2012, the Company entered into a secured bank credit facility (the "Credit Agreement") with Bank of America, N.A. as the Administrative Agent with $125 million available under a revolving credit facility (after giving effect to amendments to the Credit Agreement) and $130 million available as part of a term loan facility.
On April 14, 2014, the Company entered into a fifth amendment to the Credit Agreement (the "Fifth Amendment"), which provides for an increase in the revolving credit commitments to $200 million from $125 million and new funding under our term loan facility so that $125 million will be outstanding upon effectiveness of the Fifth Amendment. The Fifth Amendment will become effective upon consummation of that certain Asset Sale Agreement, dated March 3, 2014, by and among Carriage Services of Louisiana, Inc. and Carriage Funeral Holdings, Inc., each direct or indirect wholly-owned subsidiaries of the Company, and SCI Louisiana Funeral Services, Inc., S.E. Funeral Homes of Louisiana, LLC and S.E. Funeral Homes of Virginia, LLC, which was previously disclosed in our Current Report filed on March 5, 2014 (the "Asset Sale Agreement").
Under the Credit Agreement, outstanding borrowings bear interest at either a prime rate or a LIBOR rate, plus an applicable margin based upon the Company's senior secured leverage ratio, ranging from 2.0% to 3.5% for LIBOR borrowings and 1.0% to 2.5% for prime rate borrowings. Following effectiveness of the Fifth Amendment, obligations under the Credit Agreement will mature March 31, 2019. Borrowings under the term loan facility are subject to amortization payments of 7.5% of the principal amount in the first two years following the Fifth Amendment effective date, 10.0% for the third and fourth years following the Fifth Amendment effective date and 12.5% per year thereafter.
The Fifth Amendment also modifies the financial covenants so that the Company must maintain 3.75 to 1.00 senior secured leverage ratio as of the end of each fiscal quarter through March 30, 2015, and a 3.50 to 1.00 senior secured leverage ratio as of the end of each fiscal quarter thereafter. The foregoing description is a summary of the material terms of the Firth Amendment and is not complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Fifth Amendment, a copy of which is filed as Exhibit 10.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and is incorporated herein by reference. Item 7.01 Regulation FD
On April 15, 2014, the Company issued a Press Release announcing that the Company entered into the Fifth Agreement. A copy of the Press Release is furnished as Exhibit 99.1 to this Form 8-K.
In accordance with General Instruction B.2 of Form 8-K, the information presented herein under Item 7.01 and set forth in the attached Exhibit 99.1 is deemed to be "furnished" solely pursuant to Item 7.01 of this report and shall not be deemed "filed" for purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the "Exchange Act"), or otherwise subject to the liabilities of that section, nor shall such information or the exhibit be deemed incorporated by reference into any filing under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or the Exchange Act.
