Item 2.04 Triggering Events That Accelerate or Increase a Direct Financial Obligation or an Obligation under an Off-Balance Sheet Arrangement.
On January 10, 2005 Shopsmith, Inc. (the Company) determined that it was not in compliance with the Debt Service Coverage financial covenant as set forth in the Loan Agreement dated December 31, 2002 between the Company and The Provident Bank (the Lender), as amended (the Loan Agreement).
The Loan Agreement provides, among other terms, that the Company shall:
|Maintain the following financial covenants: ... From October 1, 2004 through June 30, 2005 of Borrowers fiscal year, a Debt Service Coverage Ratio of 1.10 to 1.00 shall be maintained by Borrower, tested quarterly. Debt Service Coverage is defined as EBITDA cash taxes, dividends, or Sub-S distributions divided by cash interest expense + quarterly CMLTD. EBITDA means Earnings [B]efore [I]nterest, [T]axes, [D]epreciation and [A]mortization. CMLTD means Current Maturities of Long Term Debt.|
For the quarter ended January 1, 2005, the Debt Service Coverage Ratio was 0.82 to 1.00. As a result of this default, the Lender may, among other actions, declare all or any part of the borrowings by the Company under the Loan Agreement immediately due and payable. As of January 10, 2005, principal and interest in the amount of $536,573 was outstanding under the Loan Agreement.
The Company has notified the Lender of the default and intends to seek a waiver. Failure to obtain the waiver could materially affect the Companys financial position, liquidity, and operations.
See FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS appearing below in this Report.

This Report contains certain forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 21E of the Securities Act of 1934, as amended, including, without limitation, statements containing the words may, intends to, could, and words of similar import. Because forward-looking statements are based on a number of beliefs, estimates and assumptions that could ultimately prove inaccurate, there is no assurance that forward-looking statements will prove to be accurate.
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities and Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned thereunto duly authorized.
