Item 1.01.

Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

On December 22, 2022, Mesa Air Group, Inc. (the “Company”) and its wholly owned subsidiaries, Mesa Airlines, Inc. (“Mesa”) and Mesa Air Group Airline Inventory Management, L.L.C., entered into a Modification and Waiver Agreement (the “Modification Agreement”) with the United States Department of the Treasury (the “Treasury”) and The Bank of New York Mellon, as Administrative Agent and Collateral Agent (the “Bank of New York”). The Modification Agreement provides for the amendment of the Loan and Guarantee Agreement, dated as of October 30, 2020 (as theretofore amended, the “Loan Agreement”), among Mesa, as Borrower, the Company, as a Guarantor, the Guarantors party thereto from time to time, the Treasury, and the Bank of New York. The amended terms include, among others, the following: (i) a modification of the Collateral Coverage Ratio covenant with respect to amounts on deposit in the Eligible Receivables Account and the Collateral Coverage Ratio covenant, effective through the maturity date of the Loan Agreement; and (ii) a waiver of the Collateral Coverage Ratio covenant requirement with respect to the release of liens on Collateral. The Modification Agreement also imposes certain obligations on the Company in connection with its sale of Collateral subject to the Loan Agreement and certain lien release obligations on the Treasury with respect to such sales. Capitalized terms used herein but not otherwise defined have the meanings assigned to such terms in the Loan Agreement.

The foregoing description of the Modification Agreement and the transactions contemplated thereby does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of such agreement, which we expect to file as an exhibit to our Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarterly period ending December 31, 2022.


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.
