Unique Fabricating, Inc. Announces Waiver and Amendment of its Credit Agreement

Company Exits Forbearance

AUBURN HILLS, MI / ACCESSWIRE / November 7, 2022 / Unique Fabricating, Inc. (NYSE American:UFAB), a leader in engineering and manufacturing multi-material foam, rubber, and plastic components utilized in noise, vibration, and harshness management and air/water sealing applications for the transportation, appliance, medical, and consumer/off-road markets, today announced that it has entered into the Waiver and Ninth Amendment (the "Ninth Amendment") to the Credit Agreement and Loan Documents, dated November 8, 2018, as amended, with the financial institutions signatory there to (the "Lenders") and Citizens Bank, National Association, a national banking association, as Administrative Agent for the Lenders.

As previously reported, as of December 31, 2020, and March 31, 2021, the Company was in violation of certain of its financial covenants (the "Specified Defaults"), as defined in the Company's Credit Agreement. As of September 30, 2021, the Company was also in violation of the required Minimum Consolidated EBITDA covenant, as amended by the Second Amendment to the Forbearance Agreement dated September 21, 2021 (the "Specified Forbearance Termination Event"). The Lenders entered into a Forbearance Agreement initially in April 2021, which subsequently has been extended, most recently through November 7, 2022, pursuant to which the Lenders agreed to forbear on a limited basis from exercising their rights because of the Specified Defaults and the Specified Forbearance Termination Event. The Lenders in the Ninth Amendment, among other things, agreed to grant a permanent waiver of the Specified Defaults and the Specified Forbearance Termination Event that have occurred prior to the effectiveness of the Ninth Amendment and of any right the Lenders may have to exercise any of their rights against the Company as a result. As a result of the new credit agreement amendment, the Company is no longer in forbearance. This represents the second step of a more comprehensive recapitalization, a process that has previously been disclosed. The Ninth Amendment requires that the Company take certain steps by specified dates to accomplish a refinancing of the debt to the lenders and to repay the debt altogether by February 2023.

Terms and details of the amendment and waiver will be filed in a Form 8-K with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
