Item 1.01  Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement

 

3CI Complete Compliance Corporation (the “Company”) entered into the Second Amended and Restated Secured Promissory Note, dated as of September 30, 2004, by and between the Company and Waste Systems, Inc. (“WSI”), which amends and restates the Amended and Restated Secured Promissory Note, dated as of October 1, 1998, as amended, previously executed by the Company in favor of WSI.  As of the date hereof, WSI is the record owner of 5,645,734 shares of the Company’s Common Stock, which represents approximately 58.0% of the issued and outstanding shares of Common Stock, and 7,750,000 shares of the Company’s Preferred Stock, which represents all of the issued and outstanding shares of Preferred Stock.

 

The Company’s borrowed indebtedness currently consists only of amounts owed to WSI under the Amended Note.  The Amended Note is payable in monthly payments of $25,000, due on the fifth business day of each month, which are applied to principal and accrued interest calculated at the prime lending rate (4.75% as of September 30, 2004), as such may change from time to time, published under “Money Rates” in The Wall Street Journal (Southwestern Edition), not to exceed 13%.  As of September 30, 2004, the aggregate principal amount of the Amended Note is $1,302,826.48.  The Amended Note also includes a revolving credit agreement under which the Company can borrow up to and including $100,000; the Company has no borrowings outstanding under the revolving credit agreement.  Borrowings under the Amended Note may be prepaid at any time without penalty.  The Amended Note matures on April 3, 2006.

 

The Amended Note is subordinated to all security interests under the Settlement Agreement and Release of All Claims dated January 10, 1996, between the Company, WSI and certain former affiliates and James H. Shepherd, James Michael Shepherd and Richard T. McElhannon, the interests of which were acquired by Stericycle, Inc., WSI’s sole stockholder, on May 1, 2002, but otherwise is secured by substantially all of the Company’s assets.  Pursuant to the Amended Note, the Company is required to achieve each fiscal quarter a minimum level of $500,000 of EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization) for the then trailing six-month period, excluding certain expenses incurred by the Company.  If the Company fails to meet this EBITDA requirement with respect to any six-month period ending on each of the Company’s fiscal quarters from and after September 30, 2004 until the Amended Note’s maturity date, the Company must pay to WSI a fee equal to one-fourth of the product of (a) the outstanding principal amount of the Amended Note on the last day of the applicable fiscal quarter, and (b) 0.03.

 

The Amended Note is attached hereto as Exhibit 10.12, and is incorporated herein by reference.
