Item 2.03Creation of a Direct Financial Obligation or an Obligation under an Off-Balance Sheet Arrangement of a Registrant.

On April 24, 2020, Town Sports International, LLC (“TSI LLC”), a wholly-owned operating subsidiary of Town Sports International Holdings, Inc. (the “Company”) received funding in connection with “Small Business Loans” under the federal Paycheck Protection Program provided in Section 7(a) of the Small Business Act of 1953, as amended by the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security Act, as amended from time to time (the “PPP”). Pursuant to the terms of the Business Loan Agreement and Promissory Note dated as of April 20, 2020, by TSI LLC in favor of BankUnited, N.A., a national banking association, TSI LLC borrowed $2,742,200 original principal amount, which was funded on April 24, 2020 (the “PPP Loan”). The PPP Loan bears interest at 1% per annum and matures in two years from the date of disbursement of funds under the PPP Loan. Interest and principal payments under the PPP Loan will be deferred for a period of six months. Under certain circumstances, all or a portion of the PPP Loan may be forgiven, however, there can be no assurance that any portion of the PPP Loan will be forgiven and that TSI LLC would not be required to repay the PPP Loan in full.

The PPP Loan contains certain covenants which, among other things, restrict the borrower’s use of the proceeds of the PPP Loan to the payment of payroll costs, interest on mortgage obligations, rent obligations and utility expenses, require compliance with all other loans or other agreements with any creditor of the borrower, to the extent that a default under any loan or other agreement would materially affect the borrower’s ability to repay the PPP Loan and limit the ability of the borrower to make certain changes to its ownership structure.

If TSI LLC defaults on the PPP Loan (i) an event of default will occur under the Company’s $370 million senior secured credit facility pursuant to a credit agreement among Town Sports International, LLC, TSI Holdings II, LLC, as a guarantor, the lenders party thereto, Deutsche Bank AG, as administrative agent, and Keybank National Association, as syndication agent and (ii) TSI LLC may be required to immediately repay the PPP Loan.
