Item 1.01. Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement

On April 10, 2024, Ameresco, Inc. (“Ameresco” or the “Company”) entered into an amendment (the “Amendment”) to its term loans and revolving credit facility with the lenders party thereto, BOFA Securities, Inc., Fifth Third Securities, Inc. and KeyBanc Capital Markets, Inc., as joint lead arrangers and bookrunners, Webster Bank N.A. as Co-Documentation Agent, and Bank of America, N.A., as Administrative Agent (“Credit Facility”). The Amendment extends the maturity date of the remaining $35 million principal amount of the original $220 million delayed draw term loan A, such that $5.0 million was paid in connection with the execution of the amendment and $7.5 million is due on each of May 15, 2024, June 15, 2024, July, 2024, and August 15, 2024. The covenant requiring Ameresco to use commercially reasonable efforts assuming normal market conditions to raise and close on a minimum of $100 million equity or subordinated debt financing was extended from April 15, 2024 to May 15, 2024.
