Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

The following is to report on Form 8-K the event previously disclosed in a press release issued on August 1, 2018, a copy of which is furnished as Exhibit 99.1 to this report.

On June 29, 2018, Black Box Corporation (the “Company”) and certain direct and indirect wholly-owned subsidiaries of the Company (collectively, the “Guarantors” and together with the Company, the “Loan Parties”) entered into a Second Amendment (the “Second Amendment”) with PNC Bank, National Association, as administrative agent (the “Agent”), and certain other lenders party thereto (together with the Agent, the “Lenders”) to amend the Credit Agreement entered into among the Loan Parties, the Agent and the Lenders on May 9, 2016 (as amended by the Amendment and Joinder Agreement, dated August 9, 2017, the “Credit Agreement,” and as further amended by the Second Amendment, the “Amended Credit Agreement”).

As the Company disclosed in the Form 8-K, filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on July 2, 2018, the Company has agreed under the Amended Credit Agreement to pursue the sale (the “Sale Transaction”) of its federal government IT services business (the “Federal Business”). Under the Amended Credit Agreement, the Company must meet certain milestone dates leading to the consummation of the Sale Transaction, including the delivery of an executed purchase agreement in respect of the Sale Transaction on or before July 31, 2018 (the “First Sale Milestone Date”). The Company and the Agent have agreed to an extension regarding the timing of the First Sale Milestone Date.

There can be no assurance that the pursuit of the Sale Transaction will result in any transaction being announced or consummated. Additional discussion regarding the effects of a default under the Amended Credit Agreement can be found in the Company’s Form 10-K, filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on July 16, 2018.

The foregoing description is qualified in its entirety by the full text of the Second Amendment, including the Amended Credit Agreement, filed as Exhibit 10.1 to the Company’s Form 8-K, filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on July 2, 2018, which is incorporated by reference herein.
