On July 19, 2019, Volt Funding II, LLC, a wholly-owned special purpose subsidiary of Volt Information Sciences, Inc. (the “Company”), entered into an amended and restated accounts receivable securitization program with certain lenders, letter of credit participants and letter of credit issuers and DZ Bank AG Deutsche Zentral-Genossenschaftsbank, Frankfurt Am Main, New York Branch (“DZ Bank”), as agent. The restated securitization program was described in the Current Report on Form 8-K filed by the Company with the Securities and Exchange Commission on July 24, 2019 (as amended from time to time, the “DZ Financing Program”).


On December 17, 2020, the Company and DZ Bank entered into Amendment No. 5 to the DZ Financing Program (the “Amendment”). The modifications to the agreement (i) extend the Amortization Date, as defined in the DZ Financing Program, from January 25, 2023 to January 25, 2024, and the Facility Maturity Date, as defined in the DZ Financing Program, from July 25, 2023 to July 25, 2024; (ii) revise an existing covenant to maintain positive net income in any fiscal year ending after 2020 to require the Company to maintain positive net income in any fiscal year ending after 2021; (iii) replace the existing Tangible Net Worth (“TNW”) covenant requirement, as defined in the DZ Financing Program, to a minimum TNW of $20.0 million through the Company’s fiscal quarter ending on or about July 31, 2021 and $25.0 million in each quarter thereafter; and (iv) revise the eligibility threshold for the receivables from one large customer of the Company’s North American Staffing segment from 5% of eligible receivables to 8%, which will increase overall availability under the DZ Financing Program by $1.0 - $3.0 million. All other terms and conditions of the DZ Financing Program remain substantially unchanged.


The foregoing description is summary in nature and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Amendment, a copy of which is attached hereto as Exhibit 10.1 and is incorporated herein by reference.
