Item 1.01 Entry Into a Material Definitive Agreement.

As previously reported, on September 27, 2018, ShotSpotter, Inc. (the “Company”) entered into a Credit Agreement with Umpqua Bank (the “Credit Agreement”), which allows the Company to borrow up to $10.0 million under a revolving loan facility.

On May 21, 2019, the Company and Umpqua entered into a First Amendment to Credit Agreement (the “Amendment”) in connection with the Company’s Board of Directors’ authorization of a stock repurchase program of up to $15 million of the Company’s common stock, which was announced on May 23, 2019 (see Item 8.01 below).  In particular, the Amendment revised the negative covenant restricting the Company’s ability to repurchase its equity interests to increase the size of the existing basket.  In addition, the Amendment revised the financial covenant relating to the amount of unrestricted cash and cash equivalents that the Company is required to maintain at all times and the minimum profitability covenant. There are no amounts outstanding under the Umpqua Credit Agreement as of the date of this Current Report.  

The foregoing description of the Amendment is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Amendment, which is filed as Exhibit 10.1 hereto and incorporated by reference herein.

Item 8.01 Other Events.


On May 23, 2019, the Company announced that its Board of Directors had approved a stock repurchase program for up to $15 million of its common stock. The shares may be repurchased from time to time in open market transactions, in privately negotiated transactions or by other methods in accordance with federal securities laws. The actual timing, number and value of shares repurchased under the program will be determined by management in its discretion and will depend on a number of factors, including the market price of the Company’s common stock, general market and economic conditions and applicable legal requirements. The stock repurchase program does not obligate the Company to purchase any particular amount of common stock and may be suspended or discontinued at any time.
