ITEM 1.01   ENTRY INTO A MATERIAL DEFINITIVE AGREEMENT.
 
Credit Agreement
 
On March 26, 2010, Select Comfort Corporation (the “Company”) entered into a Credit Agreement (the “Credit Agreement”) with Wells Fargo Bank, National Association, as Administrative Agent and Letter of Credit Issuer.  The Company also entered into various ancillary agreements related to the Credit Agreement.  The Credit Agreement provides for a $20 million secured revolving credit facility for working capital and general corporate purposes.  Up to $10 million of the new revolving credit facility is available for issuances of letters of credit.  The credit facility under the Credit Agreement matures on July 1, 2012.
 
Under the Credit Agreement, the Company will pay commitment fees equal to 0.50% per year on the unused portion of the revolving credit facility.  In addition, for each outstanding standby letter of credit under the Credit Agreement, the Company will pay a letter of credit fee at a per annum rate equal to 2.50% on the undrawn amount of each outstanding letter of credit.
 
The borrowings under the credit facility will, at the Company’s request, be classified as either LIBOR Loans or ABR Loans (both as defined in the Credit Agreement).  The rate of interest payable by the Company in respect of loans outstanding under the revolving credit facility is (i) with respect to LIBOR Loans, the Adjusted LIBO Rate (as defined in the Credit Agreement) for the interest period then in effect plus 3.00%, or (ii) with respect to ABR Loans, the Adjusted Base Rate (as defined in the Credit Agreement) then in effect plus 0.50%.
 
The Credit Agreement requires the Company to comply with, among other things, minimum fixed charge coverage ratios, maximum capital expenditure limits, minimum net worth requirements, and maintenance of an aggregate principal balance of zero under the revolving credit facility for a period of not less than 30 consecutive days in each fiscal year of the Company.  Events of default under the Credit Agreement include, among other things, payment defaults, breaches of representations, warranties or covenants, defaults under material indebtedness, certain events of bankruptcy or insolvency, judgment defaults, certain defaults or events relating to employee benefit plans or a change in control of the Company.  The events of default would permit the lenders to terminate commitments and accelerate the maturity of borrowings under the credit facility and cash collateralize any letters of credit if not cured within applicable grace periods.
 
The new revolving credit facility under the Credit Agreement is secured by a first priority security interest in the Company’s personal property assets and those of its domestic subsidiaries.
 
Please refer to Item 1.02 of this Current Report on Form 8-K for a discussion of the prior commercial financial relationship between the Company and a syndicate of lenders, including Wells Fargo Bank, National Association.
 
The foregoing description of the Credit Agreement is qualified in its entirety by reference to the complete terms of the Credit Agreement, a copy of which is filed as Exhibit 10.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and incorporated herein by reference.
