AMENDED AND RESTATED REVOLVING CREDIT LOAN AGREEMENT
THIS AMENDED AND RESTATED REVOLVING CREDIT LOAN AGREEMENT (this “Loan Agreement”) is made and entered into as of September 5, 2023 by and between CUMBERLAND PHARMACEUTICALS INC., a Tennessee corporation (the “Borrower”), and PINNACLE BANK, a Tennessee banking corporation (the “Lender”).
A.Borrower and Lender are party to the Prior Loan Agreement, as defined herein.
B.Borrower and Lender desire to amend and restate the Prior Loan Agreement as set forth herein.
NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the premises and for other good and valuable consideration, the receipt and adequacy of which is hereby acknowledged, the Borrower and the Lender agree as follows:
(a)Loan. Subject to the Conditions Precedent and the other terms and conditions contained in this Agreement and in the other Loan Documents, and in reliance upon the representations, warranties and covenants in this Agreement and the other Loan Documents, Lender agrees to make Advances to Borrower on a revolving credit basis up to $20,000,000.00 from time to time until the Maturity Date, as evidenced by and pursuant to the Note.
(b)Advances. The Borrower shall comply with the terms of Section 1.3 herein and this Agreement concerning the procedure to follow when requesting an Advance under the Note.
I.2Interest. Interest shall accrue on all amounts advanced under the Note at the Applicable Rate, as described within the Note, except that interest shall accrue at the Default Rate following the occurrence of an Event of Default (regardless of whether notice thereof has been given to Borrower).
I.3Borrowing Procedures for the Loan. The Borrower shall give the Lender written notice requesting an Advance (or telephonic notice promptly confirmed in writing), substantially in the form and substance acceptable to Lender (a “Notice of Revolving Borrowing”), prior to 11:00 a.m. (Nashville Time) on the requested date of each Advance. Each Notice of Revolving Borrowing shall be irrevocable and shall specify (i) the aggregate principal amount of such Advance, and (ii) the date of such Advance (which shall be a Business Day). If such request is received prior to 11:00 a.m. (Nashville Time), Lender shall use its best efforts to fund an Advance on the same day. Borrower acknowledges that Lender may be delayed in funding an Advance because of the need to confirm the dollar-for-dollar collateralization requirements.
I.4Use of Proceeds. Proceeds of the Note shall be used for working capital and general corporate purposes.
I.5Payments to Lender’s Office; Right of Offset. Each payment under the Note shall be made to Lender at Lender’s office for the account of Lender in United States currency on the date such payment is due. Lender may, but shall not be obligated to, debit the amount of any such payment that is not made by such time to any ordinary deposit account of Borrower with Lender (excluding any accounts held in Borrower’s name as a trustee or fiduciary). Lender shall promptly notify Borrower of any such setoff, but Lender’s failure to give such notice shall not affect the validity thereof.
(a)Commitment Fee. The Borrower shall pay to the Lender a commitment fee related to the loan evidenced by the Note in the amount equal to $20,000.00.
(b)Non-Use Fee. On each March 31st, June 30th, September 30th, and December 31st until and including the Maturity Date, the Borrower shall pay to Lender a fee equal to twenty-five (25) basis points of the average unused availability under the Note during the preceding calendar quarter, such fee to be prorated for any partial quarter; provided that if the principal amount of the Note is increased, then the twenty-five (25) basis points non-use fee shall be calculated to include the unused portion of the increased principal amount. The non-use fee shall be calculated within fifteen (15) days of each quarter end and shall be immediately paid by Borrower upon notice of such amount.
I.7Increase of Availability Under Note. The Borrower, from time to time, may request in writing that the Lender increase the principal amount available under the Note by an aggregate principal amount of up to an additional $5,000,000.00; provided that the Lender in the exercise of its sole and absolute discretion shall determine whether it will or will not fund any requested increase. In connection with any request by the Borrower for an increase, the following shall apply:
(a)each approved increase must be in a minimum amount of not less than $1,000,000.00;
(b)no request for an increase shall be delivered to Lender less than ninety (90) days prior to the Maturity Date;
(c)the Borrower’s request to the Lender for an increase shall be made in writing at least thirty (30) Business Days prior to the date the Borrower desires the requested increase to be funded and in connection with any such written request the Borrower shall submit:
(i)the purpose for the increase,
(ii)Borrower’s calculations, including pro-forma calculations, establishing to Lender’s satisfaction that none of the financial covenants set forth in this Agreement have been violated, nor will such be violated immediately after any approved funding, and
(iii)Borrower’s certification that all representations and warranties contained in the Loan Documents are true and correct as of the date of the request, and that no Default or Events of Default exists or is threatened.
In the event the Lender elects to fund any requested increase, Borrower shall:
(w)cause the Lender to receive, at Borrower’s expense, satisfactory evidence that the lien and security interest against the Collateral remains a first-priority perfected security interest in favor of Lender, subject to no encumbrance objectionable to Lender;
(x)cause the Lender to receive all loan documentation required by Lender to evidence the increase;
(y)pay to Lender all costs and expenses incurred by Lender in connection with the increase, including, without limitation, indebtedness tax, UCC filing costs, and reasonable attorney fees; and
(z)pay to Lender a commitment fee in an amount determined by Lender at the time of said increase.
I.8Usury. The parties to this Agreement intend to conform strictly to applicable usury laws as presently in effect. Accordingly, if the transactions contemplated hereby would be usurious under applicable law (including the laws of the United States of America and the State of Tennessee), then, in that event, notwithstanding anything to the contrary in any Loan Document, Borrower and Lender agree as follows: (a) the aggregate of all consideration that constitutes interest under applicable law which is contracted for, charged or received under any of the Loan Documents or otherwise in connection with the Indebtedness, shall under no circumstance exceed the amount collectible at the maximum lawful rate of interest permitted by applicable law, and any excess shall be credited on the Indebtedness by the holder thereof (or, if the Indebtedness shall have been paid in full, refunded to Borrower); and (b) if the maturity of the Indebtedness is accelerated by reason of an election of the holder resulting from any Event of Default or otherwise, or in the event of any required or permitted prepayment, then such consideration that constitutes interest may never include more than the maximum amount of interest permitted by applicable law, and excess interest, if any, for which this Agreement provides, or otherwise, shall be canceled automatically as of the date of such acceleration or prepayment and, if previously paid, shall be credited against the Indebtedness (or, if the Indebtedness shall have been paid in full, refunded to Borrower).
I.9General Interest Provisions.
(a) Interest Computation. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein or in any other Loan Document, all interest under the Note shall be computed on the basis of a year of 360 days, and in each case shall be payable for the actual number of days elapsed (including the first day but excluding the last day). All interest under the Note shall be computed on a daily basis based upon the outstanding principal amount of the Note as of the applicable date of determination. The Benchmark shall be determined by the Lender, and such determination shall be conclusive absent manifest error.
(b)Term SOFR Conforming Changes. In connection with the use or administration of Term SOFR, the Lender will have the right to make Conforming Changes from time to time and, notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, any amendments implementing such Conforming Changes will become effective without any further action or consent of any other party. The Lender will promptly notify the Borrower of the effectiveness of any Conforming Changes in connection with the use or administration of Term SOFR.
I.10Benchmark Replacement Settings.
(a) Benchmark Replacement. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein or in any other Loan Document, upon the occurrence of a Benchmark Transition Event, the Note shall be deemed amended to replace the then-current Benchmark with the Benchmark Replacement. Any such amendment with respect to a Benchmark Transition Event will become effective at 5:00 p.m. (New York City time) on the fifth (5th) Business Day after the Lender notifies the Borrower of such Benchmark Replacement; provided, however, that no replacement of a Benchmark with a Benchmark Replacement pursuant to this item (a) will occur prior to the applicable Benchmark Transition Start Date.
(b) Benchmark Replacement Conforming Changes. In connection with the use, administration, adoption or implementation of a Benchmark Replacement, the Lender will have the right to make Conforming Changes from time to time and, notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein or in any other Loan Document, any amendments implementing such Conforming Changes will become effective without any further action or consent of any other party.
(c) Notices; Standards for Decisions and Determinations. The Lender will promptly notify the Borrower of (i) the implementation of any Benchmark Replacement and (ii) the effectiveness of any Conforming Changes in connection with the use, administration, adoption or implementation of a Benchmark Replacement. The Lender will promptly notify the Borrower of the removal or reinstatement of any tenor of a Benchmark pursuant to item (d) below. Any determination, decision or election that may be made by the Lender pursuant to this section, including any determination with respect to a tenor, rate or adjustment or of the occurrence or
non-occurrence of an event, circumstance or date and any decision to take or refrain from taking any action or any selection, will be conclusive and binding absent manifest error and may be made in its sole discretion and without consent from any other party, except, in each case, as expressly required herein or in another Loan Document.
(d) Unavailability of Tenor of Benchmark. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein or in any other Loan Document, at any time (including in connection with the implementation of a Benchmark Replacement), (i) if the then-current Benchmark is a term rate (including the Term SOFR Reference Rate) and either (A) any tenor for such Benchmark is not displayed on a screen or other information service that publishes such rate from time to time as selected by the Lender in its reasonable discretion or (B) the administrator of such Benchmark or the regulatory supervisor for the administrator of such Benchmark has provided a public statement or publication of information announcing that any tenor for such Benchmark is not or will not be representative or in compliance with or aligned with the International Organization of Securities Commissions (IOSCO) Principles for Financial Benchmarks, then the Lender may modify any concept or definition of “interest period” (or any similar or analogous definition) for any Benchmark settings at or after such time to remove such unavailable, non-representative, non-compliant or non-aligned tenor and (ii) if a tenor that was removed pursuant to clause (i) above either (A) is subsequently displayed on a screen or information service for a Benchmark (including a Benchmark Replacement) or (B) is not, or is no longer, subject to an announcement that it is not or will not be representative or in compliance with or aligned with the International Organization of Securities Commissions (IOSCO) Principles for Financial Benchmarks for a Benchmark (including a Benchmark Replacement), then the Lender may modify the definition of “Applicable Rate” and/or any concept or definition of “interest period” (or any similar or analogous definition) for all Benchmark settings at or after such time to reinstate such previously removed tenor.
