ITEM 1.01.  ENTRY INTO A MATERIAL DEFINITIVE AGREEMENT.
 
On March 27, 2020, Dick’s Sporting Goods, Inc. (the “Company”), Dick’s Merchandising & Supply Chain, Inc., and certain other subsidiaries of the Company entered into an amendment to the Company’s senior secured revolving credit facility with Wells Fargo Bank, National Association, as Administrative Agent and Collateral Agent, and the other lenders party thereto.

The senior secured credit facility allows the Company, upon satisfaction of certain conditions, to request an increase to the aggregate commitments under the facility from $1.6 billion to $2.1 billion, subject to existing or new lenders agreeing to provide additional revolving commitments. The amendment increased the aggregate commitments under the senior secured credit facility by approximately $255 million, to approximately $1.855 billion. The availability of the commitments is subject to conditions and borrowing base limitations, which may fluctuate. The amendment also increased the applicable margins on base rate loans and LIBOR rate loans to the highest level under the existing pricing grid, 0.375% and 1.375%, respectively, until the Company elects to lower the aggregate commitments under the senior secured credit facility so that they no longer exceed $1.6 billion, and made other modifications, including introducing a LIBOR “floor” of 0.75% for purposes of calculating the interest rate on LIBOR based loans and modifying the borrowing base definition so that certain junior liens do not automatically disqualify eligible receivables and inventory from inclusion in the borrowing base. After giving effect to the amendment, the senior secured credit facility allows the Company, upon the satisfaction of certain conditions, to request an increase of up to approximately $245 million in additional borrowing availability, subject to existing or new lenders agreeing to provide additional revolving commitments.

The foregoing description of the amendment and the senior secured credit facility is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full and complete terms of the amendment which is included as Exhibit 10.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and incorporated herein by reference and to the full and complete terms of the senior secured credit facility and its prior amendments, all of which were included as exhibits to the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K filed on March 20, 2020.

Upon receipt of such notice, the Borrower may revoke any pending request for a Borrowing of, conversion to or continuation of LIBO Rate Loans or, failing that, will be deemed to have converted such request into a request for a Committed Borrowing of Base Rate Loans in the amount specified therein.

(b) Effect of Benchmark Transition Event.

(A) Benchmark Replacement. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein or in any other Loan Document, upon the occurrence of a Benchmark Transition Event or an Early Opt-in Election, as applicable, the Agent and the Borrower may amend this Agreement to replace the LIBO Rate with a Benchmark Replacement. Any such amendment with respect to a Benchmark Transition Event will become effective at 5:00 p.m. on the fifth (5th) Business Day after the Agent has posted such proposed amendment to all Lenders and the



Borrower so long as the Agent has not received, by such time, written notice from Lenders comprising the Required Lenders that such Required Lenders (A) in the case of an amendment to replace the LIBO Rate with a SOFR-Based Rate, object to the Benchmark Replacement Adjustment; or (B) in the case of an amendment to replace the LIBO Rate with a Benchmark Replacement that is not a SOFR-Based Rate, object to such amendment; provided that for the avoidance of doubt, in the case of clause (A), the Required Lenders shall not be entitled to object to any SOFR-Based Rate contained in any such amendment. Any such amendment with respect to an Early Opt-in Election will become effective on the date that Lenders comprising the Required Lenders have delivered to the Agent written notice that such Required Lenders accept such amendment. No replacement of the LIBO Rate with a Benchmark Replacement pursuant to this Section 3.03(b) will occur prior to the applicable Benchmark Transition Start Date.

(B) Benchmark Replacement Conforming Changes. In connection with the implementation of a Benchmark Replacement, the Agent will have the right to make Benchmark Replacement Conforming Changes from time to time and, notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein or in any other Loan Document, any amendments implementing such Benchmark Replacement Conforming Changes will become effective without any further action or consent of any other party to this Agreement.

(C) Notices; Standards for Decisions and Determinations. The Agent will promptly notify the Borrower and the Lenders of (1) any occurrence of a Benchmark Transition Event or an Early Opt-in Election, as applicable, and its related Benchmark Replacement Date and Benchmark Transition Start Date, (2) the implementation of any Benchmark Replacement, (3) the effectiveness of any Benchmark Replacement Conforming Changes and (4) the commencement or conclusion of any Benchmark Unavailability Period. Any determination, decision or election that may be made by the Agent or Lenders pursuant to this Section 3.03(b) including any determination with respect to a tenor, rate or adjustment or of the occurrence or non-occurrence of an event, circumstance or date and any decision to take or refrain from taking any action, will be conclusive and binding absent manifest error and may be made in its or their sole discretion and without consent from any other party hereto, except, in each case, as expressly required pursuant to this Section 3.03(b).

(D) Benchmark Unavailability Period. Upon Borrower’s receipt of notice of the commencement of a Benchmark Unavailability Period, the Borrower may revoke any request for a LIBO Borrowing of, conversion to or continuation of LIBO Rate Loans to be made, converted or continued during any Benchmark Unavailability Period and, failing that, the Borrower will be deemed to have converted any such request into a request for a Borrowing of or conversion to Base Rate Loans. During any Benchmark Unavailability Period, the component of Base Rate based upon the LIBO Rate will not be used in any determination of the Base Rate.”



n.Section 6.02 of the Credit Agreement is hereby amended by deleting the two last provisos in clause (b) of such Section and substituting the following in their stead:

“; provided that (x) prior to the Commitment Reduction Date and (y) at any time that a Monthly Borrowing Base Delivery Event has occurred and is continuing, such Borrowing Base Certificate (which prior to the Commitment Reduction Date shall include a report on the aggregate amount of cash on hand) shall be delivered on the 15th day of each Fiscal Month (or, if such day is not a Business Day, on the next succeeding Business Day), in each case, as of the close of business as of the last day of the immediately preceding Fiscal Month; provided further that at any time that a Weekly Borrowing Base Delivery Event has occurred and is continuing, such Borrowing Base Certificate (which prior to the Commitment Reduction Date shall include a report on the aggregate amount of cash on hand) shall be delivered on Tuesday of each week (or, if Tuesday is not a Business Day, on the next succeeding Business Day), in each case, as of the close of business on the immediately preceding Saturday;”

o.Section 10.01(b) of the Credit Agreement is hereby amended by (i) deleting the conjunction “and” before clause (y) and (ii) adding the following new clause (z) at the end of such paragraph:

“, and (z) any amendment contemplated by Section 3.03(b) of this Agreement in connection with a Benchmark Transition Event or an Early Opt-in Election shall be effective as contemplated by such Section 3.03(b) hereof.”

p.Schedules and Exhibits to Credit Agreement. Schedules 2.01 (Commitments and Applicable Percentages) and 10.02 (Agent’s Office; Certain Addresses for Notices to the Credit Agreement) and Exhibit F (Form of Borrowing Base Certificate) are hereby deleted in their entirety and new Schedules 2.01 and 10.02 and a new Exhibit F attached to Annex A hereto are substituted respectively in their stead.

2.Commitment Increase.

From and after the Fifth Amendment Effective Date, each reference in the Credit Agreement to any existing Lender’s Commitments shall mean such



Lender’s Commitment as set forth opposite its name on Schedule 2.01 to this Amendment under the heading “Commitment”.

b.The Agent and the Increasing Lenders hereby agree that this Amendment shall constitute the giving of the notice required by Section 2.15(a) of the Credit Agreement with respect to the Commitment Increase, and that each Increasing Lender’s delivery of its executed signature page to this Amendment shall constitute its agreement to increase its Commitment to the extent set forth in Schedule 2.01 to this Amendment notwithstanding any provision of Section 2.15(b) of the Credit Agreement to the contrary.

3.Ratification of Loan Documents. Except as specifically amended by this Amendment and the other documents executed and delivered in connection herewith, all of the terms and conditions of the Credit Agreement, the Security Agreement and of the other Loan Documents shall remain in full force and effect as in effect prior to the date hereof. The Loan Parties hereby ratify, confirm, and reaffirm that all representations and warranties of such Loan Parties contained in the Credit Agreement, the Security Agreement and each other Loan Document are true and correct in all material respects on and as of the date hereof (except (i) to the extent that such representations and warranties are qualified by materiality, in which case they are true and correct in all respects, and (ii) to the extent that such representations and warranties specifically refer to an earlier date, in which case they are true and correct in all material respects (or in all respects, as applicable) as of such earlier date).
