Filed Under: Distribution

EveryWare Global, Inc. has entered into an amendment to extend the Company's Forbearance Agreement with the administrative agent and certain other lenders under the Company's Term Loan Agreement through July 29, 2014. In addition, EveryWare entered into a further amendment to the company's asset-backed loan ("ABL") agreement with the lenders under its ABL facility to extend the increased availability under that facility through July 29, 2014.

The Forbearance Agreement amendment provides that the parties to the Forbearance Agreement, constituting more than 50% of the lenders under the Term Loan Agreement, will continue to forbear from exercising their rights and remedies under the Term Loan Agreement with respect to the events of default that occurred as a result of the Company's failure to comply with the maximum consolidated leverage ratio covenant and the minimum interest coverage ratio covenant for the fiscal quarters ended March 31, 2014 and June 30, 2014. The period of forbearance is now set to expire at 5:00 p.m. (New York City time) on July 29, 2014, unless terminated earlier pursuant to the terms of the Forbearance Agreement.

In addition, the Company entered into an amendment to the Company's ABL agreement. Among other things, the ABL amendment extended the temporary increase in the Company's available liquidity from July 22, 2014 to the earlier of (i) July 29, 2014 and (ii) the date on which the Forbearance Agreement terminates in accordance with its terms. If the Forbearance Agreement terminates prior to July 29, 2014, it will result in an event of default under the ABL agreement.
