SAN JOSE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Quantum Corporation (NASDAQ: QMCO) (“Quantum or the “Company”) today filed a Form 8-K detailing amendments to the Company’s term loan and revolving credit agreements. These amendments, among other things, waived the covenant requirements related to financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP for the fiscal quarter ended December 31, 2023. The amendments also waived financial covenants related to the Company’s total net leverage ratio for the same fiscal period. Additionally, the agreements established informational updates and coordination on business initiatives with the Company’s Lenders. Per the revised agreements, the Company has through May 15, 2024 to resume financial compliance.

Commenting on the announcement, Jamie Lerner, Quantum's Chairman and CEO, stated, "These amended agreements reflect the strong partnership we have with our Lenders in support of the Company’s path forward, as we work to complete the SSP re-evaluation process, resume timely filings of the Company’s financial statements and drive the business toward our long-term model. In addition, we are pursuing tangible strategic opportunities to pay-down debt as well as improve the Company’s operational and business outlook.”
