Item 1.01

Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement


On March 7, 2018, Contrail Aviation Support, LLC (“CAS”), a partially-owned subsidiary of Air T, Inc. (the “Company”), entered into a new Business Loan Agreement (the “Loan Agreement”) with Old National Bank (“ONB”). The Loan Agreement and related Promissory Note replace that certain Business Loan Agreement and Promissory Note with ONB dated May 5, 2017. The new Loan Agreement provides for revolving credit borrowings by CAS in an amount up to $20,000,000 with a maturity date of May 5, 2019. Borrowings under the Loan Agreement will bear interest at a variable rate equal to the 1-month LIBOR plus 300 basis points.


The obligations of CAS under the Loan Agreement are secured by a first-priority security interest in all of the assets of CAS and are also guaranteed by the Company; provided, however, that the total dollar amount of borrowings guaranteed by the Company to ONB is limited to a maximum of $1,600,000, plus costs of collection.


The Loan Agreement contains affirmative and negative covenants, including covenants that restrict CAS’ ability to make acquisitions or investments, make certain changes to its capital structure, and engage in any business substantially different than it presently conducts as well as financial covenants relating to, among other things, quarterly cash flow coverage, tangible net worth and a required pay down period.


The Loan Agreement contains Events of Default, as defined therein, including, without limitation, nonpayment of principal, interest or other obligations, violation of covenants, bankruptcy and other insolvency events, false statements made in a warranty or representation, death or incompetency of any guarantor or material adverse changes in the borrower’s financial condition.


The foregoing summary of the terms of the Loan Agreement and Promissory Note does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Loan Agreement and Promissory Note, which are filed as Exhibit 10.1 hereto and is incorporated by reference herein.
