PLBY Group Amends Credit Agreement to Enhance Covenant Flexibility
LOS ANGELES, Dec. 07, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- PLBY Group, Inc. (NASDAQ: PLBY) (the “Company”), a leading pleasure and leisure lifestyle company and owner of Playboy, one of the most recognizable and iconic brands in the world, announced today that it successfully amended its senior secured credit agreement to, among other things, give the Company the ability to waive applicable net leverage ratio covenants up through the second quarter of 2024 in connection with certain prepayments of the term loan under the credit agreement.
“We believe the anticipated paydown of our debt from cash on hand and expected proceeds from the rights offering we announced earlier today will reduce the cash burden of our debt and provide us with the flexibility to continue to improve our capital structure,” said the Company’s Chief Executive Officer Ben Kohn. “It also allows us to remain focused on our long-term strategy and invest in the continued growth of Playboy and Honey Birdette.”
Additional details regarding the credit agreement amendment will be timely filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission by the Company on a Current Report on Form 8-K.
