Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

On July 29, 2022 (the “Closing Date”), Eos Energy Enterprises, Inc., a Delaware corporation (the “Company”), entered into a Senior Secured Term Loan Credit Agreement (the “Credit Agreement”) with ACP Post Oak Credit I LLC, as lender, administrative agent and collateral agent (“Atlas”), and the lenders from time to time party thereto (collectively with Atlas, the “Lenders”). The Credit Agreement provides for an $85.1 million term loan (the “Term Loan”), the entirety of which was funded on the Closing Date. The Credit Agreement also permits the Company to make a one-time request for an additional commitment of up to $14.9 million, with funding of such commitment in the sole discretion of the Lenders, under certain circumstances and under the same terms as the Term Loan. On the Closing Date, the Company also entered into that certain Guarantee and Collateral Agreement, dated as of July 29, 2022, by and among the Company, the other grantors named therein and Atlas (the “Guarantee and Collateral Agreement”).

On the Closing Date, pursuant to the Credit Agreement, $9.6 million of the Term Loan proceeds were deposited into an escrow account (the “Interest Escrow Account”) in the name of, and controlled by, Atlas that will be used towards, among other things, the first four interest payments due following the third anniversary of the Closing Date. Any amounts remaining in the Interest Escrow Account following the Company’s repayment in full of the Term Loan will be returned to the Company. In addition, pursuant to the Credit Agreement, a collateral protection insurance policy (the “Insurance Wrap”) was issued to the Lenders, and the Company paid a $10.6 million cash premium on the Closing Date to the insurance provider thereunder. In the event that the Company’s obligations under the Credit Agreement remain outstanding on the first, second and third anniversaries of the Closing Date, the Company will be required to make additional cash premium payments on the Insurance Wrap as follows: (i) on the first anniversary of the Closing Date, a payment equal to 3.0% of the loans then outstanding under the Credit Agreement, (ii) on the second anniversary of the Closing Date, a payment equal to 3.0% of the loans then outstanding under the Credit Agreement and (iii) on the third anniversary of the Closing Date, a payment equal to 2.0% of the loans then outstanding under the Credit Agreement.

The Company agreed to use the remaining proceeds from the Term Loan to (i) fund growth investments and for general corporate purposes in accordance with the Credit Agreement, including corporate-level research and development investments, (ii) expand the manufacturing facility of the Company’s wholly owned subsidiary, Hi-Power, LLC (“Hi-Power”), in the Turtle Creek, Pittsburgh area in Pennsylvania, (iii) redeem in full the Company’s existing indebtedness to Holtec Power, Inc. and (iv) pay certain fees and expenses incurred in connection with the Credit Agreement.

The outstanding principal balance of the Term Loan bears interest at the applicable margin plus, at the Company’s election, either (i) the benchmark secured overnight financing rate (“SOFR”), which is a per annum rate equal to the greater of (y) the Term SOFR (as defined in the Credit Agreement) plus 0.2616% and (z) 1.0%, or (ii) the alternate base rate (“ABR”), which is a per annum rate equal to the greatest of (x) the Prime Rate (as defined in the Credit Agreement), (y) the NYFRB Rate (as defined in the Credit Agreement) plus 0.5% and (z) the SOFR. The applicable margin under the Credit Agreement is 8.50% per annum with respect to SOFR loans, and 7.50% per annum with respect to ABR loans.

Subject to certain exceptions as set forth in the Credit Agreement, interest on the Term Loan is payable quarterly in arrears on the last business day of each fiscal quarter. The Term Loan is set to mature on the earlier of (i) July 29, 2026 and (ii) 91 days prior to the then-current maturity date of the convertible notes issued in July 2021 in favor of Spring Creek Capital, LLC, as subsequently assigned to Wood River Capital, LLC, a wholly owned, indirect subsidiary of Koch Industries, Inc. (the “Koch Note”), which is currently June 30, 2026, after giving effect to any extension, refinancing or replacement thereof (the “Maturity Date”). The Credit Agreement provides for no scheduled principal amortization prior to the Maturity Date.

The Term Loan is secured by substantially all of the assets of the Company and its subsidiaries other than the assets of Hi-Power and is guaranteed by the Company's subsidiaries other than Hi-Power. As set forth in more detail in the Credit Agreement, the Company is required to make mandatory prepayments on the Term Loan in the event of certain specified events, including in the event of certain capital raises by the Company and its subsidiaries. The Company may also prepay amounts under the Term Loan, subject to certain costs and conditions specified in the Credit Agreement.

The Credit Agreement also contains customary representations, warranties and events of default for a facility of this nature and affirmative and negative covenants. In particular, the Credit Agreement requires the Company to have liquidity of at least $9.6 million as of the last day of each fiscal quarter, subject to certain adjustments set forth in the Credit Agreement. In addition, the Credit Agreement limits the Company’s and its subsidiaries’ ability to incur indebtedness, make restricted payments, including cash dividends on its common stock, make certain investments, loans and advances, enter into mergers and acquisitions, sell, assign transfer or otherwise dispose of its assets, enter into transactions with its affiliates and engage in sale and leaseback transactions, among other restrictions.

Furthermore, the limitation on the Company’s ability to incur indebtedness also (i) limits the amount of pre-advance loans that the Company may have outstanding at any time to $15.0 million under that certain common stock standby equity purchase agreement (the “SEPA”) dated April 28, 2022, by and between the Company and an affiliate of Yorkville Advisors

(“Yorkville”), as amended, and (ii) requires the payment of any principal and interest in kind on each of the SEPA and the Koch Note. Following the closing of the Term Loan, a substantial majority interest in the Term Loan was assigned to Ledgewood Credit Partners I, LLC.
