A copy of the press release is furnished as Exhibit 99.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K. The information furnished with this Item 2.02, including Exhibit 99.1, shall not be deemed “filed” for purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, or otherwise subject to the liabilities of that section, nor shall it be deemed incorporated by reference into any filing under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, except as expressly set forth by specific reference in such a filing.

Item 2.03

As previously disclosed, on December 9, 2016, certain subsidiaries of the Company entered into that certain credit agreement (as amended or supplemented to date, the “2016 Credit Agreement”) with Royal Bank of Canada, as administrative agent, RBC Capital Markets and TD Securities (USA) LLC, as joint lead arrangers and joint bookrunners, and certain other agents and lenders.  The 2016 Credit Agreement provides for a revolving credit facility (the “Revolving Credit Facility”) of up to $30.0 million. and a first lien term loan facility of $340.0 million.  The second lien term loan facility of $125.0 million also entered into on December 9, 2016, was paid off in connection with the closing of the business combination of Pivotal Acquisition Corp. with LD Topco, Inc. (“LD Topco”). The material terms of the 2016 Credit Agreement are described under “Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations—Liquidity and Capital Resources—2016 Credit Agreement” in the Company’s registration statement on Form S-1 filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on February 4, 2020 (the “S-1 Registration Statement”), which description is incorporated by reference herein. As of December 31, 2019, the Company had $29.1 million of availability under the Revolving Credit Facility. On March 25, 2020, Company provided notice to the lenders to borrow $29.0 million under the Revolving Credit Facility so that a total of $29.9 million is currently outstanding (including $0.9 million in letters of credit).
