|Item 1.01.||Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.|
On July 27, 2021, Shepherd’s Finance, LLC (the “Company”) entered into Amendment No. 2 (the “Amendment”) to the Indenture (the “Indenture”) with U.S. Bank National Association (“U.S. Bank”), as trustee. Pursuant to the Amendment, the Company added additional redemption options in the Indenture for holders of a fixed rate subordinated note (a “Note”).
Unless the subordination provisions in the Indenture restrict the Company’s ability to make the redemption, Note holders may require the Company to redeem all or a portion of their Note, regardless of amount, for a redemption price equal to the principal amount plus an amount equal to the unpaid interest thereon for such Note at the stated rate to the redemption date, upon one business day’s advance notice to the Company, but only if the holder immediately upon redemption invests the entirety of the proceeds from such redemption in another Note or another security then-offered by the Company, if any. In such event, the Note holder will not be subject to a holding period requirement or an interest penalty. These redemption options are in addition to the other redemption options described in the Indenture.
The foregoing description of the Amendment is subject to, and qualified in its entirety by, the full text of the Amendment, which is incorporated herein by reference as Exhibit 4.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K.
