Item 1.01.                Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.


Forbearance and Limited Waiver to Credit Agreement


On June 14, 2019, Monitronics International, Inc., a Texas corporation (“Monitronics” or the “Company”), entered into a Forbearance and Limited Waiver to Credit Agreement (the “Forbearance Agreement”) with Bank of America N.A., as administrative agent (the “Administrative Agent”) under that certain Credit Agreement dated as of March 23, 2012, by and among the Company, the Administrative Agent, and the lenders from time to time party thereto (as amended, the “Credit Agreement”), and other specified loan parties to the Credit Agreement  (collectively, the “Forbearance Parties”). Pursuant to the Forbearance Agreement, the Forbearance Parties agree to (i) refrain from exercising their rights and remedies under the Credit Agreement and related loan documents with respect to the Specified Defaults (as defined below) and (ii) waive certain conditions precedent to credit extensions under the Credit Agreement (solely to the extent that such condition would not be satisfied due to the occurrence and continuance of a Specified Default) until the earlier of (a) July 3, 2019, or (b) the occurrence of a Forbearance and Limited Waiver Termination Event (as defined below).


A “Specified Default” means (i) any default or event of default under the Credit Agreement arising due to the failure of the Company to satisfy the requirement of Section 6.01(a) of the Credit Agreement that the report and opinion of an independent certified public accountant delivered with respect to the financial statements of the Company as at the end of the fiscal year ended December 31, 2018, not include an explanatory paragraph expressing substantial doubt about the ability of the Company or other loan parties to continue as a going concern or any qualification or exception as to the scope of such audit, (ii) any default or event of default under Section 8.01(b) of the Credit Agreement, resulting from the Consolidated Senior Secured Eligible RMR Leverage Ratio (as defined in the Credit Agreement) exceeding the limit specified in Section 7.11(c) of the Credit Agreement as of the fiscal quarter ended March 31, 2019, and (iii) any default or event of default under Section 8.01(e) of the Credit Agreement, resulting from the Company’s failure to make the interest payment due on April 1, 2019, under its 9.125% Senior Notes due 2020 (the “Senior Notes”).


A “Forbearance and Limited Waiver Termination Event” means: (i) the occurrence of any default or event of default under the Credit Agreement other than the Specified Defaults; (ii) the failure of the Company to comply with any of the terms and requirements of the Forbearance Agreement; (iii) the acceleration of the Senior Notes, (iv) any action by the trustee under the Senior Notes and/or any holder of the Senior Notes to exercise rights or remedies pursuant to the indenture governing the Senior Notes after an event of default under such indenture; (v) any direction by the Required Lenders (as defined in the Credit Agreement) that the Administrative Agent exercise any rights or remedies pursuant to Section 8.02 of the Credit Agreement; (vi) any action by any loan party, or any of their officers, directors, shareholders or affiliates of the Company to assert any claim against the Administrative Agent or the lenders under the Credit Agreement; (vii) the termination of that certain Restructuring Support Agreement dated as of May 20, 2019 (the “RSA”), for any reason; or (viii) any modification to the RSA that materially and adversely impacts the proposed treatment of the Revolving Credit Lenders (as defined in the Credit Agreement) or the legal or equitable rights of the Revolving Credit Lenders.


The above description of the terms of the Forbearance Agreement does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by the full text of the Forbearance Agreement, which is attached as an exhibit hereto and incorporated herein by reference.
