On October 30, 2018, Ascent Capital and Brinks Home Security entered into the Amended and Restated Support Agreement. Under the agreement, Brinks Home Security will commence an Exchange Offer for its Senior Notes (the "Exchange Offer") and commence a consent solicitation for certain proposed amendments to its Credit Facility (the "Bank Amendments"), both described in the Amended and Restated Support Agreement. Ascent Capital will contribute $75 million in cash to Brinks Home Security under the terms of the Amended and Restated Support Agreement.

Pursuant to the Bank Amendments, the interest rate per annum payable in respect of the Credit Facility term loan shall be increased by 100 basis points and the interest rate per annum payable in respect of the Credit Facility revolver shall be increased by 75 basis points. In addition, Brinks Home Security would seek to amend certain restrictive covenants in the Credit Facility as described in the Amended and Restated Support Agreement, including the ability for Brinks Home Security to issue second lien notes. Additionally, the total availability under the Credit Facility revolver would be permanently decreased from $295 million to $250 million.

Pursuant to the Exchange Offer, Brinks Home Security would make an offer to eligible holders of its Senior Notes to exchange them for new Second Lien Notes due 2023 (the "Second Lien Notes") and solicit the consent of such holders to eliminate or waive all or substantially all restrictive covenants and events of default in the indenture governing the Senior Notes. The interest payable in respect of the new Second Lien Notes will be paid 5.5% per annum in cash and 6.5% per annum in kind.

If the Bank Amendments are not completed by a certain date, Brinks Home Security will commence an alternative exchange offer of new unsecured notes and cash in exchange for the existing Senior Notes.

Ascent Capital, Brinks Home Security, the Consenting Noteholders and the Credit Facility Lenders all have certain termination rights as defined in the Amended and Restated Support Agreement.
