Item 1.01. Entry Into a Material Definitive Agreement.

On July 2, 2020, TechTarget, Inc. (the “Company”) entered into a Loan and Security Modification Agreement (“Modification Agreement”) with Western Alliance Bank (“Western Alliance”) pursuant to which the Company and Western Alliance agreed to amend the Loan and Security Agreement, dated December 24, 2018, (“Loan Agreement”) between the Company and Western Alliance. The Modification Agreement, among other things, adds or amends certain definitions in the Loan Agreement, adds a financial covenant requiring the Company to maintain an Asset Coverage Ratio (as defined in the Loan Agreement) of no less than 1.0 to 1.0 tested as of the end of each quarter, and provides the Company with a new revolving line of credit facility of $20,000,000 (“Line of Credit”). The Line of Credit allows the Company to request non-formula advances in an aggregate principal amount not to exceed the Line of Credit and to use the proceeds of such advances until the facility matures on July 2, 2022. Advances under the Line of Credit bear interest at a floating rate equal to one-quarter percent (0.25%) above the Prime Rate (as published in the Money Rates section of the Western Edition of The Wall Street Journal, or such other rate of interest publicly announced from time to time by Western Alliance as its Prime Rate); provided that at no time shall the interest rate on such advances be less than three and one half percent (3.50%). The Modification Agreement also establishes a process by which the Company and Western Alliance will determine an alternative interest rate for the Company’s existing Term Loan under the Loan Agreement in the event that Western Alliance determines that LIBOR ceases to exist or is no longer available. In addition, the Company will be required to pay customary fees and expenses, including an annual facility fee with respect to the Line of Credit.

The Loan Agreement and Line of Credit have been guaranteed by the Company and are secured by substantially all assets of the Company and its subsidiaries.

The description above is qualified in its entirety by the Modification Agreement, which is included as Exhibit 10.2 and is incorporated by reference herein.

Item 2.03. Creation of a Direct Financing Obligation or an Obligation under an Off-Balance Sheet Arrangement of a Registrant.

Please see the discussion set forth under Item 1.01, “Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement,” of this Form 8-K, which discussion is incorporated herein by reference in its entirety.

(14)

The Loan and Security Agreement is hereby amended by adding Exhibit C attached hereto to the Loan and Security Agreement immediately following Exhibit B attached thereto.

3.CONSISTENT CHANGES.  The Existing Documents are each hereby amended wherever necessary to reflect the changes described above.

4.NO DEFENSES OF BORROWER/GENERAL RELEASE.  Borrower agrees that, as of this date, is has no defenses against the obligations to pay any amounts under the Indebtedness.  Each Borrower and its affiliates (each, a “Releasing Party”) acknowledges that Bank would not enter into this Loan and Security Modification Agreement without Releasing Party’s assurance that it has no claims against Bank or any of Bank’s officers, directors, employees or agents.  Except for the obligations arising hereafter under this Loan and Security Modification Agreement, each Releasing Party releases Bank and each of Bank’s officers, directors and employees from any known or unknown claims that Releasing Party now has against Bank of any nature, including any claims that Releasing Party, its successors, counsel, and advisors may in the future discover they would have now had if they had known facts not now known to them, whether founded in contract, in tort or pursuant to any other theory of liability, including but not limited to any claims arising out of or related to the Loan and Security Agreement or the transactions contemplated thereby.  Releasing Party waives the provisions of California Civil Code section 1542, which states:

A GENERAL RELEASE DOES NOT EXTEND TO CLAIMS THAT THE CREDITOR OR RELEASING PARTY DOES NOT KNOW OR SUSPECT TO EXIST IN HIS OR HER FAVOR AT THE TIME OF EXECUTING THE RELEASE AND THAT, IF KNOWN BY HIM OR HER, WOULD HAVE MATERIALLY AFFECTED HIS OR HER SETTLEMENT WITH THE DEBTOR OR RELEASED PARTY.

The provisions, waivers and releases set forth in this section are binding upon each Releasing Party and its shareholders, agents, employees, assigns and successors in interest.  The provisions, waivers and releases of this section shall inure to the benefit of Bank and its agents, employees, officers, directors, assigns and successors in interest.  The provisions of this section shall survive payment in full of the Obligations, full performance of all the terms of this Loan and Security Modification Agreement and the other Loan Documents, and/or Bank’s actions to exercise any remedy available under the Loan Documents or otherwise.

5.CONTINUING VALIDITY.  Borrower understands and agrees that in modifying the existing Indebtedness, Bank is relying upon Borrower’s representations, warranties, and agreements, as set forth in the Existing Documents.  Borrower represents and warrants that the representations and warranties contained in the Loan and Security Agreement are true and correct as of the date of this Loan and Security Modification Agreement, and that no Event of Default has occurred and is continuing.  Except as expressly modified pursuant to this Loan and Security Modification Agreement, the terms of the Existing Documents remain unchanged and in full force and effect.  Bank’s agreement to modifications to the existing Indebtedness pursuant to this Loan and Security Modification Agreement in no way shall obligate Bank to make any future modifications to the Indebtedness.  Nothing in this Loan and Security Modification Agreement shall constitute a satisfaction of the Indebtedness.  It is the intention of Bank and Borrower to retain as liable parties all makers and endorsers of Existing Documents, unless the party is expressly released by Bank in writing.  No maker, endorser, or guarantor will be released by virtue of this Loan and Security Modification Agreement.  The terms of this paragraph apply not only to this Loan and Security Modification Agreement, but also to any subsequent Loan and Security modification agreements.

6.CHOICE OF LAW AND VENUE; JURY TRIAL WAIVER; REFERENCE PROVISION.  This Loan and Security Modification Agreement constitutes a “Loan Document” as defined and set forth in the Loan and Security Agreement, and is subject to Sections 11 and 12 of the Loan and Security Agreement, which are incorporated by reference herein.
