Item 1.03 Bankruptcy or Receivership.
On April 2, 2024, Waitr Holdings Inc. (the “Company”) and subsidiaries Waitr Intermediate Holdings, LLC (“WIH”), Dude Delivery, LLC (“Dude Delivery”), Cape Payments LLC (“Cape Payments”), BiteSquad.com, LLC (“BiteSquad”), ASAP Inc. (“ASAP”), Have Fun, LLC (“Have Fun”), DDIT, LLC (“DDIT”), CDMX Holdings, LLC (“CDMX”), Delivery Logistics, LLC (“Delivery Logistics”), Catering on Demand LLC (“Catering”) and KASA Delivery, LLC (“KASA” and together with Catering, Delivery Logistics, CDMX, DDIT, Have Fun, ASAP, BiteSquad, Cape Payments, Dude Delivery and WIH, the “Subsidiaries,” and each a “Subsidiary”), each filed a voluntary petition for relief under the provisions of Chapter 7 (“Chapter 7”) of Title 11 of the United States Code (the “Bankruptcy Code”) in the United States Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware (the “Bankruptcy Court”), (collectively, the “Bankruptcy Filings”). The Company and the Subsidiaries ceased substantially all of its operations on April 2, 2024 (although certain services ceased operating as disclosed in a Form 8-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on February 13, 2024 and April 1, 2024, respectively).
A Chapter 7 trustee will be appointed by the Office of the United States Trustee for the District of Delaware, and the trustee will assume control over the assets and liabilities of the Company and the Subsidiaries, effectively eliminating the authority and powers of the Board of Directors of the Company and each Subsidiary (or their respective governing equivalents) and their respective executive officers to act on their behalf. The assets of the Company and the Subsidiaries will be liquidated and claims paid in accordance with the Bankruptcy Code.
It is unlikely that holders of the Company’s common stock will receive any payment or other distribution on account of those shares following the bankruptcy proceedings.
Item 2.04. Triggering Events that Accelerate or Increase a Direct Financial Obligation or an Obligation under an Off-Balance Sheet Arrangement.
The commencement of the Chapter 7 cases described in Item 1.03 of this Current Report on Form 8-K constitutes an event of default under certain of the Company’s debt instruments (including (i) the credit agreement dated November 15, 2018, as amended, by and among the Company, various lenders and Luxor Capital Group, LP as administrative agent and (ii) the credit and guaranty agreement dated November 15, 2018, as amended, by and among various Subsidiaries, various lenders and Luxor Capital Group, LP as administrative agent), which results in acceleration of the Company’s and the Subsidiaries’ obligations under such debt instruments.
Item 5.02. Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers.
Concurrent with or prior to the Bankruptcy Filings, Carl A. Grimstad, the chief executive officer, Armen Yeghyazarians, the chief financial officer and chief accounting officer, Thomas C. Pritchard, general counsel, David Cronin, chief engagement officer, and Timothy Newton, chief technology officer were terminated as executive officers of the Company. As of April 2, 2024, neither the Company nor any of the Subsidiaries have officers or employees.
Concurrent with the Bankruptcy Filings, directors Carl A. Grimstad, Jonathan Green, Buford H. Ortale, and J. Daniel Schmidt tendered their resignations as members of the Company’s Board of Directors. The resignation of Messrs. Grimstad, Green, Ortale and Schmidt are not the result of any disagreements with the Company regarding the Company’s operations, policies, or practices. Each of the directors resigned due to the Company’s Bankruptcy Filing, which effectively eliminates the powers of the Company’s Board of Directors. Following the director resignations, the Company has no members serving on its Board of Directors.
Item 8.01 Other Events.
The audit of the Company’s financial statements for its fiscal year end dated December 31, 2023 was not completed and the Company will no longer have the capability to prepare and file with the Securities and Exchange Commission the Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2023 or any other periodic reports.
