Merrimack, N.H. – October 13, 2010. Brookstone Company, Inc. announced that it has executed a Supplemental Indenture amending the Indenture that governs its 12% Second Lien Senior Secured Notes due 2012 to eliminate all the covenants other than those requiring payment of principal and interest on the 2012 Notes when it is due, to eliminate all the Events of Default other than those relating to failure to pay principal and interest on the 2012 Notes when it is due, to release the collateral for the 2012 Notes, and to change the title of the 2012 Notes to “12% Unsecured Notes due 2012.”
These amendments will become operative when Brookstone pays for the 2012 Notes that are tendered in response to its offer to acquire 2012 Notes for cash (subject to proration) or in exchange for new 13% Second Lien Senior Secured Notes due 2014, which is expected to occur on or about October 25, 2010.
