Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

On August 27, 2018, Gulf Island Fabrication, Inc. (the “Company”) and the subsidiary guarantors named therein entered into a Third Amendment (the “Third Amendment”) to that certain Credit Agreement with Whitney Bank, as lender, dated June 9, 2017 (the “Credit Agreement”). The Third Amendment lowers the base tangible net worth requirement from $185.0 million to $180.0 million in the minimum tangible net worth covenant. In addition, the Third Amendment revises the calculation for the minimum tangible net worth covenant to remove (i) the inclusion of 50% of Consolidated Net Income (as defined in the Credit Agreement) for each fiscal quarter and (ii) the inclusion of 50% of the gain on the sale of assets of Gulf Marine Fabricators, L.P. The Third Amendment also extends the termination date of the Credit Agreement by one year to June 9, 2020.

The foregoing summary is only a summary of certain provisions of the Third Amendment and is qualified in its entirety by the full text of the Third Amendment, which will be filed as an exhibit to the Company’s quarterly report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended September 30, 2018.



Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
