Item 1.01.  Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.
 
Effective as of March 23, 2015, we entered into an Amendment Number Three to Credit Agreement (the “ Third Amendment ”) with Wells Fargo Bank, National Association, amending the terms of the Credit Agreement dated effective as of March 20, 2014, as previously amended by that certain Amendment Number One to Credit Agreement dated as of August 8, 2014 and that certain Amendment Number Two to Credit Agreement dated as of September 24, 2014 (as amended, the “ Credit Agreement ”).

The Third Amendment authorizes us to optionally prepay, subject to specified conditions, the Subordinated Promissory Note dated August 8, 2014 in the original principal amount of $753,929.26 in favor of Roomtag, LLC.  The Roomtag note, which we issued in connection with our acquisition of substantially all of the assets of Roomtag, LLC in August 2014, bears interest at 0.36% per annum and is due on October 31, 2016.

8.   Counterparts .  This Amendment may be executed in any number of counterparts and by different parties and separate counterparts, each of which when so executed and delivered, shall be deemed an original, and all of which, when taken together, shall constitute one and the same instrument.  Delivery of an executed counterpart of a signature page to this Amendment by telefacsimile or other electronic method of transmission shall be effective as delivery of a manually executed counterpart of this Amendment.
 
9.   Reference to and Effect on the Loan Documents .
 
(a)   Upon and after the effectiveness of this Amendment, each reference in the Credit Agreement to “this Agreement”, “hereunder”, “hereof” or words of like import referring to the Credit Agreement, and each reference in the other Loan Documents to “the Credit Agreement”, “thereof” or words of like import referring to the Credit Agreement, shall mean and be a reference to the Credit Agreement as modified and amended hereby.

(b)   Except as specifically amended above, the Credit Agreement and all other Loan Documents, are and shall continue to be in full force and effect and are hereby in all respects ratified and confirmed and shall constitute the legal, valid, binding and enforceable obligations of Borrower without defense, offset, claim or contribution.
 
(c)   The execution, delivery and effectiveness of this Amendment shall not, except as expressly provided herein, operate as a waiver of any right, power or remedy of Agent under any of the Loan Documents, nor constitute a waiver of any provision of any of the Loan Documents.
 
(d)   To the extent that any terms and conditions in any of the Loan Documents shall contradict or be in conflict with any terms or conditions of the Credit Agreement, after giving effect to this Amendment, such terms and conditions are hereby deemed modified or amended accordingly to reflect the terms and conditions of the Credit Agreement as modified or amended hereby.
 
10.   Ratification .  Borrower hereby restates, ratifies and reaffirms each and every term and condition set forth in the Credit Agreement, as amended hereby, and the Loan Documents effective as of the date hereof.
 
11.   Estoppel .  To induce Agent to enter into this Amendment and to continue to make advances to Borrower under the Credit Agreement, Borrower hereby acknowledges and agrees that, immediately before and after giving effect to this Amendment, as of the date hereof, there exists no Default or Event of Default and no right of offset, defense, counterclaim or objection in favor of Borrower or any Guarantor as against Agent or any Lender with respect to the Obligations.
