Item 1.01 Entry into a Material
On November 29, 2012, Electro Rent Corporation
(“Electro Rent”) entered into a sixth amendment to commercial credit agreement (“Credit Agreement Amendment”)
with Union Bank, N.A. (“Union Bank”). The Credit Agreement Amendment amends the commercial credit agreement
between Electro Rent and Union Bank dated September 29, 2008 (the “Commercial Credit Agreement”), pursuant to
which Union Bank provides a revolving line of credit to Electro Rent.
The Credit Agreement Amendment amends the
Commercial Credit Agreement by:
|·||increasing the permitted maximum aggregate outstanding principal amount under the Commercial Credit
Agreement from $25,000,000 to $50,000,000;|
|·||extending the term and maturity date of the Commercial Credit Agreement from October 1, 2015 to
November 30, 2015;|
|·||deleting the quick ratio financial covenant;|
|·||amending the amounts and payment dates of the annual commitment fees such that Electro Rent agrees
to pay (i) a $25,000 commitment fee on November 30, 2012, (ii) a $50,000 commitment fee on November 20, 2013 and (iii) a $50,000
commitment fee on November 30, 2014;|
|·||amending the minimum tangible net worth financial covenant in the Commercial Credit Agreement such
that Electro Rent covenants that our tangible net worth will not be less than (i) $195 million at the close of the fiscal quarter
ending August 31, 2012, (ii) as of the close of the fiscal quarter (and fiscal year) ending May 31, 2013, an amount equal to the
sum of (x) $195 million plus (y) twenty-five percent (25%) of our consolidated net profit after taxes for such previous fiscal
year plus (z) one hundred percent (100%) of any net equity proceeds we raised after November 30 of such fiscal year and (iii) as
of the close of each fiscal quarter ending during each fiscal year thereafter, an amount equal to the sum of (x) the minimum tangible
net worth required with respect to the prior fiscal year plus (y) twenty-five percent (25%) of our consolidated net profit after
taxes for such previous fiscal year plus (z) one hundred percent (100%) of any net equity proceeds we raised during such fiscal
|·||replacing the positive net earnings financial covenant with an EBITDA financial covenant such that
Electro Rent covenants that Electro Rent will achieve EBITDA of not less than $70 million to be measured as of the close of each
fiscal quarter for the twelve month fiscal period immediately preceding the date of the calculation. For purposes of this financial
covenant, EBITDA means (a) the consolidated net profits after taxes of Electro Rent and its subsidiaries for each fiscal quarter,
plus (b) interest expense of Electro Rent and its subsidiaries for such fiscal quarter, plus (c) the aggregate amount of federal
and state tax expense of Electro Rent and its subsidiaries for such fiscal quarter, plus (d) depreciation, amortization and all
other non-cash expenses of Electro Rent and its subsidiaries for such fiscal quarter.|

Commercial Credit Agreement shortly prior to the payment of the dividends discussed below under Item 8.01 to partially fund the
dividends, which will cost approximately $29 million. The balance of the cost of the dividends will be paid from cash on hand.
