On May 25, 2023, we closed on the sale to a related party the economic interests in the leases at our Greenville, South Carolina radio transmitter site for $3.5

Because the availability of our ABL Facility was less than $4.5 million during the quarter, we were required to test against the fixed charge coverage ratio covenant. The fixed charge coverage ratio was below the required 1.0 to 1.0 level during the quarter and therefore, we were not in compliance with that covenant. On August 7, 2023 we signed a forbearance whereby the bank agreed not to exercise remedies on the default during the month of August. Additionally, the notional amount of the revolver was reduced from $30.0 million to $25.0 million with a minimum availability of $1.0 million. Finally, the interest rate on the ABL Facility was increased by
percentage points effective July 1, 2023 through the date of the forbearance amendment.

%. We used a portion of the proceeds of this borrowing to redeem the remaining $36.5
% Senior Secured Notes due 2024 (“2024 Notes”). The redemption of the 2024 Notes closed on March 27, 2023.
On January 19, 2023, we repurchased $2.5 million of the 2024 Notes at 97.25% of face value recognizing a gain of $39,000 after adjusting for debt issue costs.
