Secured Loan Agreement


On November 13, 2020, Mesa Air Group, Inc. (the “Company”) completed a second closing (the “Second Closing”) and borrowed an additional $152.0 million under its previously disclosed Loan and Guarantee Agreement (the “Loan Agreement”), dated October 30, 2020 (the “Initial Closing”), by and among the Company, its subsidiaries named therein, the United States Department of the Treasury (“Treasury”), and the Bank of New York Mellon as Administrative and Collateral Agent under the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (“CARES Act”).


As previously disclosed, the Loan Agreement provided a secured term loan facility of up to $200.0 million. The Company had previously borrowed $43.0 million on the Initial Closing. The proceeds may be used for general corporate purposes and operating expenses, to the extent permitted by the CARES Act.



In connection with the additional borrowings on the Second Closing, the Company issued additional warrants (each, a “Warrant” and collectively, the “Warrants”) to Treasury to purchase 3,819,095 shares of the Company’s common stock, no par value. The Warrants have a five year term from the issuance date, were issued pursuant to the Warrant Agreement entered into by the Company and Treasury, and have substantially identical terms to the warrants issued on the Initial Closing.


The Warrants are being issued pursuant to Section 4(a)(2) of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”). Any issuance of Common Stock upon exercise of the Warrants will be exempt as an exchange by the Company exclusively with its security holders eligible for exemption under Section 3(a)(9) of the Securities Act.






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

Dated: November 16, 2020
