Item 1.01.  Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.  

 

On March 26, 2020, Mesa Air Group, Inc. (“Mesa” or the “Company”) and General Electric Company (“GE”), acting through its GE-Aviation business unit, entered into (a) Amended and Restated Letter Agreement No. 13-1 (“Letter Agreement No. 13-1”), which amends and restates Letter Agreement No. 13 entered into by the parties effective December 11, 2019, and (b) Amended and Restated Letter Agreement No. 12-1 (“Letter Agreement No. 12-1” and together with Letter Agreement No. 13-1, the “Amended and Restated Letter Agreements”), which amends and restates Letter Agreement No. 12 entered into by the parties effective October 22, 2019.  The Amended and Restated Letter Agreements each provide that they are effective March 20, 2020.

 

Under Letter Agreement No. 13-1, Mesa has agreed to purchase and take delivery of 20 new spare CF34-8C5 engines.  Delivery of the new spare engines will commence in April 2021, with the final spare engine being delivered in December 2021.  The parties had previously agreed to commence delivery of the new spare engines in August 2020.  The payment terms for the new spare engines were also amended, with payments to now be made in four (4) separate tranches commencing in October and December 2020 and February and March 2021.  

 

Under Letter Agreement No. 12-1, Mesa has agreed to purchase and take delivery of two (2) new spare CF34-8C5 engines by no later than March 31, 2020.  The parties agreed that progress payments previously made by Mesa constitute full payment for these engines.  The Company does not consider this Letter Agreement to be a material definitive agreement, as defined by the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission, but has elected to voluntarily file such Letter Agreement along with the filing of Letter Agreement No. 13-1.

 

The foregoing description of the Amended and Restated Letter Agreements does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Amended and Restated Letter Agreements, filed as exhibits to this Current Report on Form 8-K, subject to a request for confidential treatment with respect to certain portions of each such document.
