Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.
Effective January 15, 2010, we executed a third amendment (the Third Amendment) to our current banking
facilities in the United States that, among other things, extended all maturity dates to March 26, 2010, amended
certain covenants, deferred payment of certain fees and expenses and waived prior defaults.
As previously reported in our Current Report on Form 8-K dated December 10, 2009, we have a $7.0 million revolving
credit facility secured by substantially all of our U.S. assets (the Credit Facility) and an $800,000 term loan
secured by two hybrid transit vehicles (the Term Loan) from our U.S. lender (the Bank). We also have a letter of
credit issued by the Bank in the amount of approximately $4.2 million, which is secured by cash on deposit with the
Bank in the amount of approximately $4.2 million. As of the date of this report, the total principal amount of
indebtedness outstanding under the Credit Facility and the Term Loan was approximately $4.2 million. Pursuant to the
Third Amendment, we have agreed to reduce this amount to $3.8 million on or before January 29, 2010.
As previously reported in our Current Report on Form 8-K dated December 10, 2009, we have two additional letters
of credit issued by the Bank in the amounts of approximately $500,000 and $447,000, respectively. As of the date of
this report, two new letters of credit for these amounts have been issued as replacements by two other banks.
The Credit Facility, as amended, continues to bear a floating interest rate based on the 30-day LIBOR rate plus a
margin of 7.0% per annum. The Term Loan, as amended, also continues to bear a fixed rate of interest of 8.0% per annum.
All amounts borrowed under the U.S. banking facilities and reimbursement obligations in respect of the Letters of
Credit remain secured and cross-collateralized by general security interests on substantially all of our U.S. assets.
The Third Amendment contains customary representations and warranties for amendments of this type and modifies or adds
certain affirmative and negative covenants and events of default, including certain reporting and notice requirements;
and certain additional capital requirements to reduce the principal balance of the Facilities.
We intend to repay the U.S. banking facilities in full by means of a replacement facility, although we can offer
no assurances in that regard. Our failure to comply with our U.S. banking facilities or to repay or refinance them when
they become due could have a material adverse effect on our business, results of operations and financial condition.
