On February 28, 2019, Recro Pharma, Inc.

Pursuant to the Second Amendment, (i) the total commitments of the term loan credit facility governed by the Company’s Credit Agreement dated November 17, 2017 by and among the Company, the Guarantors, the Lenders and Athyrium, as previously amended by that certain First Amendment to Credit Agreement and Investment Documents, dated as of December 28, 2018 (collectively, the “Existing Credit Agreement”), was increased from $100 million to $125 million, (ii) the $15 million term B-2 loan and $15 million term C loan provided for under the Existing Credit Agreement were restructured into a $55 million term B-2 loan which was funded on the date of execution of the Second Amendment and (iii) the maturity date was extended to March 31, 2023 (the “Maturity Date”).

Beginning on March 31, 2021, the Company must repay the outstanding principal amount of the $60 million Term-A loan (the “Term A Loan”), $10 million Term B-1 loan (the “Term B-1 Loan”) and the $55 million Term B-2 loan (the “Term B-2 Loan” and collectively with the Term A Loan and the Term B-1 Loan, the “Loans”)) in quarterly installments of $3,000,000 with the outstanding principal balance due on the Maturity Date. To the extent the Company prepays, or is required to prepay, the Loans, in addition to such amount being prepaid, (i) with respect to the Term A Loan, the Company must pay a premium equal to: (a) 7.5% of the principal amount of any prepayment paid or required to be paid on or prior to March 31, 2020 plus all interest that would have accrued on the Term A Loan to and including March 31, 2020, (b) 5.00% of the principal amount of any prepayment paid or required to be paid after March 31, 2020 but on or prior to March 31, 2021, (c) 2.5% of the principal amount of any prepayment paid or required to be paid after March 31, 2021 but on or prior to March 31, 2022, and (d) 0.00% with respect to any prepayment paid or required to be paid thereafter, and (ii) with respect to the Term B-1 Loan or the Term B-2 Loan, the Company must pay a premium equal to: (a) 7.5% of the principal amount of any prepayment paid or required to be paid on or prior to March 31, 2021 plus all interest that would have accrued on the Term B-1 Loan and B-2 Loan to and including March 31, 2021, (b) 5.0% of the principal amount of any prepayment paid or required to be paid after March 31, 2021 but on or prior to March 31, 2022, and (c) 2.5% of the principal amount of any prepayment paid or required to be paid thereafter.

In addition, pursuant to the Second Amendment, the minimum liquidity covenant was increased to $12 million and the Consolidated Debt to Revenues Ratio covenant under the Existing Credit Agreement was replaced with a Consolidated Leverage Ratio covenant based on EBITDA of the Company’s CDMO segment. Such leverage ratio covenant must be no greater than 4.5 to 1.00 as of the end of any fiscal quarter of the Company.

In connection with the execution of the Second Amendment, the Company paid Athyrium (i) a $2,500,000 amendment fee, (ii) a $436,000 closing fee, (iii) an original issue discount of $11,400,000 and (iv) certain other fees and expenses, including the fees and expenses of Athyrium’s legal counsel.
