AMENDMENT NO. 1 TO
AMENDED AND RESTATED REVOLVING CREDIT AND SECURITY AGREEMENT

This AMENDMENT NO. 1 TO AMENDED AND RESTATED REVOLVING CREDIT AND SECURITY AGREEMENT (this “Amendment”) is made and entered into effective as of April 12, 2017, by and among TECHNICAL CONSUMER PRODUCTS, INC., a Delaware corporation (“TCP”), TECHNICAL CONSUMER PRODUCTS CANADA, INC., an Ontario corporation (“TCP Canada” and, together with TCP, the “Borrowers” and each a “Borrower”), BOWMAN LAMPS, LLC, an Ohio limited liability company (the “Subsidiary Guarantor,” and together with the Borrowers, the “Loan Parties”), the financial institutions which are a party to the Credit Agreement referred to below (collectively, the “Lenders” and each, individually a “Lender”) and PNC BANK, NATIONAL ASSOCIATION, a national banking association, as agent for Lenders (in such capacity, the “Agent”).

PRELIMINARY STATEMENTS
WHEREAS, the Borrowers, the Subsidiary Guarantor, the Lenders and the Agent are parties to that certain Amended and Restated Revolving Credit and Security Agreement, dated as of September 29, 2016 (the “Credit Agreement”). Capitalized terms used but not otherwise defined in this Amendment shall have the meanings respectively ascribed to them in the Credit Agreement;
WHEREAS, an Event of Default has occurred and is continuing under the Credit Agreement as a result of Borrowers’ failure to comply with Section 9.7 of the Credit Agreement (Annual Financial Statements) for the fiscal year ending December 31, 2015 (the “Specified Events of Default”);
WHEREAS, the Loan Parties have requested and Agent and Lenders have agreed to waive the Specified Events of Default and amend certain provisions of the Credit Agreement; and
WHEREAS, the Loan Parties signatory hereto are entering into this Amendment with the understanding and agreement that, except as expressly provided herein, none of Agent’s or any Lender’s rights or remedies as set forth in the Credit Agreement or any Other Document is being waived or modified by the terms of this Amendment.

NOW THEREFORE, in consideration of the foregoing and the mutual covenants herein contained, and for other good and valuable consideration, the receipt and sufficiency of which are hereby acknowledged, the parties, intending to be legally bound, agree as follows:
ARTICLE I
WAIVER OF THE SPECIFIED EVENTS OF DEFAULT

1.Upon execution of this Amendment by all parties hereto, Agent and Lenders hereby waive the Specified Events of Default; provided, however that such waiver shall in no way constitute a waiver of any other Default or Event of Default which may have occurred but which is not specifically referenced as the Specified Events of Default, nor shall such waiver obligate Agent or Lenders to provide any further waiver of any other Default or Event of Default (whether similar or dissimilar), including any further Default or Event of Default resulting from a failure to comply with the terms of the Credit Agreement. Other than in respect of the Specified Events of Default, the waiver herein shall not preclude the future exercise of any right, power, or privilege available to Agent or Lenders whether under the Credit Agreement, the Other Documents or otherwise. Agent and Lenders have not been advised by the Loan Parties of the existence of any Default or Events of Default other than the Specified Events of Default. Agent and Lenders have no actual knowledge, as of the date of this Amendment, of the existence of any Default or Events of Default other than the Specified Events of Default.

ARTICLE II
AMENDMENTS

1.Amendments to Section 1.2.
a.Section 1.2 of the Credit Agreement is hereby amended by adding the following definitions in their respective proper alphabetical order:






Applicable Margin” for Revolving Advances shall mean, as of the February 1, 2017, the applicable percentage specified below:
FIXED CHARGE COVERAGE RATIO
APPLICABLE MARGIN FOR DOMESTIC RATE LOANS
APPLICABLE MARGIN FOR EURODOLLAR RATE LOANS
Less than 1.25 to 1.00
4.50%
5.50%
Greater than or equal to 1.25 to 1.00 but less than 1.50 to 1.00
4.25%
5.25%
Greater than or equal to 1.50 to 1.00 but less than 1.75 to 1.00
4.00%
5.00%
Greater than or equal to 1.75 to 1.00
3.75%
4.75%

Thereafter, if there exists no Default or Event of Default, effective as of the first Business Day of the month following receipt by Agent of the final annual financial statements of Borrowers for the fiscal years ending December 31, 2015 and December 31, 2016 required under Section 9.7, and thereafter upon receipt of the financial statements of Borrowers required under Section 9.8 for any fiscal quarter end (each day of such delivery, an “Adjustment Date”), the Applicable Margin for each type of Advance shall be adjusted, if necessary, to the applicable percent per annum set forth in the pricing table set for below corresponding to the Fixed Charge Coverage Ratio for the trailing twelve month period ending on the last day of the most recently completed fiscal quarter prior to the applicable Adjustment Date (each such period, a “Calculation Period”); provided, however, to the extent any such adjustment would result in a reduction in the then Applicable Margin, such adjustment shall be made only if the requisite level in the table below has been met for at least two consecutive fiscal quarters:
FIXED CHARGE COVERAGE RATIO
APPLICABLE MARGIN FOR DOMESTIC RATE LOANS
APPLICABLE MARGIN FOR EURODOLLAR RATE LOANS
Less than 1.25 to 1.00
2.50%
3.50%
Greater than or equal to 1.25 to 1.00 but less than 1.50 to 1.00
2.25%
3.25%
Greater than or equal to 1.50 to 1.00 but less than 1.75 to 1.00
2.00%
3.00%
Greater than or equal to 1.75 to 1.00
1.75%
2.75%


If any Borrower shall fail to deliver the financial statements, certificates and/or other information required under Sections 9.7 or 9.8 by the dates required pursuant to such sections, each Applicable Margin shall be conclusively presumed to equal the highest Applicable Margin specified in the pricing table set forth above until the date of delivery of such financial statements, certificates and/or other information, at which time the rate will be adjusted based upon the Fixed Charge Coverage Ratio reflected in such statements.

If, as a result of any restatement of, or other adjustment to, the financial statements of any Borrower or for any other reason, the Agent determines that (a) the Fixed Charge Coverage Ratio as previously calculated as of any applicable date was inaccurate, and (b) a proper calculation of the Fixed Charge Coverage Ratio would have resulted in different pricing for any period, then (i) if the proper calculation of the Fixed Charge Coverage Ratio would have resulted in higher pricing for such period, the Borrowers shall automatically and retroactively be obligated to pay to the Agent, promptly upon demand by the Agent, an amount equal to the excess of the amount of interest that should have been paid for such period over the amount of interest actually paid for such period; and (ii) if the proper calculation of the Fixed Charge Coverage Ratio would have resulted in lower pricing for such period, Lenders shall have no obligation to repay interest to the Borrowers; provided, that, if as a result of any restatement or other event a proper calculation of the Fixed Charge Coverage Ratio would have resulted in higher pricing for one or more periods and lower pricing for one or more other periods (due to the shifting of income or expenses from one period to another period or any similar reason), then the amount payable by





the Borrowers pursuant to clause (i) above shall be based upon the excess, if any, of the amount of interest that should have been paid for all applicable periods over the amounts of interest actually paid for such periods.

Change of Control” shall mean (a) any person or group of persons (within the meaning of Section 13(d) or 14(a) of the Exchange Act) shall have acquired beneficial ownership (within the meaning of Rule 13d-3 promulgated by the SEC under the Exchange Act) of 50% or more of the voting Equity Interests of Holdings; (b) during any period of twelve (12) consecutive months, a majority of the members of the board of directors of Holdings cease to be composed of individuals (i) who were members of that board or equivalent governing body on the first day of such period, (ii) whose election or nomination to that board was approved by individuals referred to in clause (i) above constituting at the time of such election or nomination at least a majority of that board or (iii) whose election or nomination to that board was approved by individuals referred to in clauses (i) and (ii) above constituting at the time of such election or nomination at least a majority of that board; (c) any merger or consolidation of or with a Borrower or sale of all or substantially all of the property or assets of a Borrower; or (d) any change in the Chief Executive Officer, Chief Financial Officer, President, or individual exercising similar functions and duties of Holdings or a Borrower without express approval from Agent in Agent’s sole discretion.

2.Amendment to Section 9.7.

a.Section 9.7 of the Credit Agreement is hereby amended and restated as follows:

9.7.    Annual Financial Statements. Furnish Agent within one hundred twenty (120) days after the end of each fiscal year of Borrowers and Holdings, final financial statements of each Borrower on a consolidated basis including but not limited to, statements of income and stockholders’ equity and cash flow from the beginning of the current fiscal year to the end of such fiscal year and the balance sheet as at the end of such fiscal year, all prepared in accordance with GAAP applied on a basis consistent with prior practices, and in reasonable detail, and reported upon without qualification (as to Holdings or Borrowers, as the case may be) by an independent certified public accounting firm selected by Borrowers or Holdings, as the case may be, and satisfactory to Agent (the “Accountants”); provided, however, that with respect to the fiscal years ending December 31, 2015 and December 31, 2016, such financial statements shall be furnished to Agent no later than October 31, 2017. The report of the Accountants shall be accompanied by a statement of the Accountants certifying that, in connection with their audit, either no information came to their attention which to their knowledge caused them to believe that any Borrower had failed to comply with any of the terms, covenants, provisions, or conditions of any of Sections 6.5, 7.4, 7.5, 7.6, 7.7, 7.8 and 7.11 or, if such information came to their attention, specifying such information.
