1. Definitions. Capitalized terms used in this First Amendment are as defined in the Credit Agreement, as amended hereby, unless otherwise stated.

2. Amendments to Credit Agreement. Subject to and in accordance with the terms and conditions set forth herein, the parties hereto agree that as of the First Amendment Date:

“First Amendment” shall mean that certain First Amendment to Revolving Credit, Term Loan and Security Agreement and Consent dated as of the First Amendment Date by and among the Loan Parties, Administrative Agent and Lenders.

“First Amendment Date” shall mean April 25, 2017.


B. Amended Definitions. The definition of “Change of Control” contained in Section 1.2 of the Credit Agreement shall be amended as follows:

Clause (b)(ii) of the definition of “Change of Control” is hereby replaced with “with respect to the aggregate amount of Equity Interests owned by the Permitted Holders collectively, A.S.V. Holdings owning less than approximately 49% thereof;”

C. Amended and Restated Definitions. The definitions of “Net Cash Proceeds” and “Qualified IPO” contained in Section 1.2 of the Credit Agreement shall be amended and restated in their entirety as follows:

“Net Cash Proceeds” shall mean gross proceeds of any applicable sale, transfer, disposition or initial offering of Equity Interests less the reasonable direct costs, expenses (including legal fees and consultant fees), taxes, and assessments incurred in connection with such sales, transfers, other dispositions or initial offering of Equity Interests.

“Qualified IPO” means the initial offering of Equity Interests by Borrower in an underwritten primary public offering (other than a public offering pursuant to a registration statement on Form S-8) pursuant to an effective registration statement filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission in accordance with the Securities Act (whether alone or in connection with a secondary public offering) that generates (x) gross cash proceeds of not less than $25,000,000, and (y) Net Cash Proceeds actually received by Borrowers of not less than $7,500,000.”

D. Amendment to Credit Agreement. Clause (d) set forth in Section 2.20 of the Credit Agreement is hereby amended and restated in its entirety to read as follows:

(d) In the event of any initial offering of Equity Interests by Loan Parties or any Subsidiary in connection with a Qualified IPO, the Loan Parties shall, no later than three (3) Business Days after the receipt by such Loan Party or any Subsidiary of its portion of the Net Cash Proceeds of such Qualified IPO, repay the Advances in an amount equal to forty percent (40%) of such Net Cash Proceeds, such repayments will be applied first, to the outstanding principal installments of the Term Loan A in the inverse order of the maturities thereof (including the final installment thereof) until paid in full in cash, second to the outstanding principal installments of the Term Loan B in the inverse order of the maturities thereof (including the final installment thereof) until paid in full in cash, and third to the remaining Advances (including cash collateralization of all Obligations relating to any outstanding Letters of Credit in accordance with the provisions of Section 3.2(b); provided however that if no Default or Event of Default has occurred and is continuing, such repayments of the remaining Advances shall be applied to cash collateralize any Obligations related to outstanding Letters of Credit last) in such order as Administrative Agent may determine, subject to Borrowers’ ability to re-borrow Revolving Advances in accordance with the terms hereof.

E. Perfection of Security Interests. The last sentence of Section 4.2 of the Credit Agreement shall be amended and restated in its entirety as follows:

“Each Loan Party shall cause its Parent to pledge 100% of the issued and outstanding Equity Interests of such Loan Party; subsequent to a Qualified IPO, with

 

2


respect to ASV, the Permitted Holders shall only be required to pledge the Equity Interests retained by such Permitted Holders after consummation of the Qualified IPO, which pledges, in each case, shall at all times constitute a first priority, perfected Lien pursuant to the terms and conditions of this Agreement and the Other Documents or other security documents as any Agent shall reasonably request.

3. Release of Lien; Return of Pledge Equity Interest. In connection with the consummation of a Qualified IPO and the conversion of ASV from a Minnesota limited liability company to a Delaware corporation, upon request by each of the Permitted Holders: (i) Administrative Agent shall release its Lien in the Equity Interests of ASV pledged by the Permitted Holders pursuant to Collateral Pledge Agreements executed by each of the Permitted Holders in favor of Administrative Agent dated as of the Closing Date to the extent such Equity Interests are sold by the Permitted Holders in connection with such Qualified IPO (such Equity Interests, the “IPO Equity Interests”) and Administrative Agent shall deliver any release or termination documents reasonably requested by Borrowers to evidence such release, and (ii) Administrative Agent shall return to Borrowing Agent all certificates representing the Equity Interests of ASV as a limited liability company. For the avoidance of doubt, the Pledge Agreement, and the Liens granted therein, shall remain in full force and effect with respect to all Equity Interests pledged thereto other than the IPO Equity Interests. To the extent that (x) ASV issues to the Permitted Holders new or replacement certificates evidencing the Equity Interests retained by the Permitted Holders subsequent to the IPO, the Permitted Holders shall deliver such certificates to Administrative Agent together with duly endorsed assignments in blank, or (y) ASV’s Equity Interests are not evidenced by physical certificates or are held by a securities intermediary, ASV and the Permitted Holders shall take such actions as requested by Agents to ensure the pledge of the Equity Interests is perfected and is a first priority Lien under Applicable Law, including without limitation, delivery by the Permitted Holders of a securities account control agreement executed by any applicable securities intermediary, which actions described in clauses (x) and (y) above shall be completed to Agents’ reasonable satisfaction (1) within five (5) Business Days following the initial offering of the Qualified IPO with respect to no less than 51% of the issued and outstanding Equity Interests of ASV (the “Initial Pledge”), and (2) within fifteen (15) days following the end of the Greenshoe Option Period with respect to any and all remaining issued and outstanding Equity Interests of ASV that are not sold to the public in connection with the Qualified IPO (the “Subsequent Pledge”). As used herein, the term “Greenshoe Option Period” shall mean a forty-five (45) day period commencing promptly after the initial offering of the Qualified IPO, during which underwriters of the Qualified IPO may purchase additional Equity Interests of ASV. For the avoidance of doubt, the Lenders and the Agents agree that so long as no Change of Control would result (1) the Permitted Holders shall be permitted to sell, from time to time, some or all of the Equity Interests pledged to the Administrative Agent in connection with the Subsequent Pledge and (2) in preparation for the sale of such Equity Interests, within five (5) Business Days following a request from the Permitted Holders, the Administrative Agent shall return to Borrowing Agent the certificates evidencing the Equity Interests delivered to the Administrative Agent in connection with the Subsequent Pledge.
