Item 1.01. Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

On June 30, 2016, Dent-A-Med Inc. (“DAMI”), a wholly owned indirect subsidiary of Aaron’s, Inc. (the “Company”), and HC Recovery, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of DAMI, entered into the twelfth amendment (the “Twelfth Amendment”) to the 2011 loan and security agreement assumed by the Company in the October 2015 acquisition of DAMI (the “DAMI Credit Facility”). The Twelfth Amendment amends the DAMI Credit Facility to, among other things, (i) remove the financial covenant that requires DAMI to maintain a certain EBITDA ratio, (ii) include a financial covenant that requires DAMI to meet certain trailing twelve month and fiscal quarter EBITDA thresholds, (iii) include a minimum tangible net worth requirement for DAMI, and (iv) include a financial covenant that DAMI shall maintain a monthly Cash Collection Percentage (as defined in the DAMI Credit Facility) of greater than or equal to 5.0%. The Twelfth Amendment also amends the definition of “Permitted Indebtedness” in the DAMI Credit Facility to include non-interest bearing debt owing to the Company and certain of its affiliates under certain circumstances.

As amended, borrowings under the DAMI Credit Facility bear interest at 4.375% plus one-month LIBOR, provided that the applicable margin will increase by 0.25% if Monthly Excess Availability (as defined in the DAMI Credit Facility) is less than twenty percent.

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


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