Item 1.01 Amendment of a Material Definitive Agreement.


The Company has a revolving credit facility with Silicon Valley Bank (the “Bank”) dated October 31, 2013.  Under this revolving credit facility, the Company has the ability to borrow up to $10.0 million on a revolving basis during its two year term. The Company’s ability to borrow under this line of credit is limited to 80% of the then current amount of qualified accounts receivable. The Company’s financial results for the quarter ended June 30, 2014 caused the Company not to meet the Minimum Adjusted Net Income covenant, which covenant was waived by the Bank. The Company was in compliance with all other covenants related to the credit facility.


The Company and the Bank have entered into a Waiver and First Amendment Agreement dated August 1, 2014, which waived compliance with the Minimum Adjusted Net Income covenant for the trailing six month period ended June 30, 2014 and adjusted this covenant for the periods remaining in the facility term.  All other terms of the Loan and Security Agreement remain in effect.
