is this a life line or just more nails in the coffin
Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement
As previously disclosed, on July 2, 2023 (the “Petition Date”), Tattooed Chef, Inc. (the “Company”) and certain of its direct and indirect subsidiaries (collectively, the “Company Parties”) filed a voluntary petition (the “Chapter 11 Cases”) under Chapter 11 of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code (the “Bankruptcy Code”) in the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Central District of California (the “Bankruptcy Court”). The Company Parties’ Chapter 11 proceedings are jointly administered under the caption “In re: Ittella International, LLC, et al.”, Case Number 2:23-bk-14154-SK (the “Chapter 11 Cases”). The Company Parties continue to operate their business in the ordinary course and in accordance with the applicable provisions of the Bankruptcy Code and orders of the Bankruptcy Court.
On July 6, 2023, at a hearing before the Bankruptcy Court, the Bankruptcy Court entered an interim order (the “Interim DIP Order”) approving the DIP Facility (as defined below) on an interim basis, providing the Company Parties with additional capital to continue to operate during the pendency of the Chapter 11 Cases.
On July 11, 2023, the Company Parties and UMB entered into a Senior Secured Super-Priority Priming Debtor-In-Possession Loan and Security Agreement (the “DIP Credit Agreement”), which provides for a $6,000,000 senior secured super-priority debtor-in-possession credit facility (the “DIP Facility”) consisting of (i) new money revolving loans in an aggregate amount of up to $3,000,000, and (ii) roll-up loans (where prepetition secured obligations to UMB are converted into post-petition secured obligations under the DIP Facility) in an aggregate amount of $3,000,000 (collectively, the “DIP Loans”). UMB’s obligations to fund the DIP Loans are contingent upon the satisfaction of certain conditions set forth in the DIP Credit Agreement, including, without limitation, the entry of the Interim DIP order and final orders by the Bankruptcy Court approving the DIP Facility and its terms (the “DIP Orders”). The proceeds of all or a portion of the DIP Facility may be used by the Company Parties in accordance with the budget provided for therein, including, without limitation, to (i) pay the administrative costs of the Chapter 11 Cases and the DIP Facility and (ii) for general working capital purposes, in all cases on the terms, and subject to the conditions, set forth in the DIP Credit Agreement, the DIP Orders, and other applicable orders of the Bankruptcy Court.
Pursuant to the terms of the DIP Credit Agreement, interest will accrue on the principal balance of the DIP Loans at a rate per annum equal to the secured overnight financing rate as administered by the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, adjusted daily, plus 5%, provided that in no event will the interest rate be less than 5% per annum. The Company Parties are also obligated to pay UMB a $60,000 fee in consideration of the DIP Facility, which is payable in full on the Maturity Date (as defined below). The DIP Facility includes conditions precedent, representations and warranties, affirmative and negative covenants and events of default customary for financings of this type and size. The occurrence of any event of default will cause the principal balance of the DIP Loans to accrue interest at a rate per annum equal to 2% above the non-default interest rate. Unless accelerated as a result of an event of default, all obligations under the DIP Facility shall mature and be due and payable in full on September 30, 2023 (the “Maturity Date”).
Subject to entry of the DIP Orders, the Company Parties’ obligations under the DIP Credit Agreement will be (i) secured by, among other things, (a) first priority, priming security interests in substantially all of the Company Parties’ assets, subject only to certain carve outs and permitted exceptions, as set forth in the DIP Credit Agreement and DIP Orders, and (b) a Deed of Trust Assignment of Rents and Leases, Security Agreement and Fixture Filing among UMB and certain of the Company Parties covering the Company’s New Mexico facilities, and (ii) granted super-priority administrative claim status in the Chapter 11 Cases, subject only to certain carve outs, as set forth in the DIP Credit Agreement and DIP Orders. The foregoing description of the DIP Credit Agreement and DIP Facility does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the DIP Credit Agreement, a copy of which is attached hereto as Exhibit 10.1 and is incorporated herein by reference.

Tattooed Chef: A Winning Brand In A Rocketing Plant-Based Food Industry
Feb. 25, 2022 1:57 PM ET
Given its current outlook, I rate TTCF as a buy for the mid to long-term investing horizons. The company has a strong underlying strategy and is well on its way to creating a successful brand within a fast-growing industry. Investors should remain wary of the stock's extreme volatility and take this risk into full consideration before investing. For those willing to ride the stock for years to come, however, TTCF has the potential to provide solid returns if its brand continues to grow and management can keep OPEX manageable.
Tattooed Chef: Should Investors Buy the Stock Now?
"The upside is undoubtedly enticing, considering that Tattooed Chef's market cap is just $1 billion. Tattooed Chef seems to have enough potential that it's worth taking a position in, but it's a risky stock until it proves it can execute; in other words, it needs to grow revenue while showing a path to turning a profit.
The great news about a company like Tattooed Chef is that you don't need many shares to make a lot of money. A smaller position size would still work out if the stock becomes an eventual multi-bagger while limiting risk to your portfolio if the company never operates the way it needs to."
A good day today!
Very sad to see this continue to struggle week after week, month after month.
Sub $12 is a disgrace.
Sure glad I dumped the bulk of shares prior to Year-end and only have 50 shares left.
Holding remaining shares to see if this can ever get back to $30 and hold that level to consolidate, then move upwards in 2023 and into the future.
Time will tell if this flops or is successful in 2,3,5 and 10 years.
Don't get Bravo.
Up again today. So far.

(Nasdaq: TTCF) (“Tattooed Chef” or the “Company”), a leader in plant based foods, today announced that Gaspare (“Gasper”) Guarrasi has been named its new Chief Operating Officer, effective November 29, 2021.

The Company’s current Chief Operating Officer, Stephanie Dieckmann, will remain with the Company as Chief Financial Officer.
“I am very pleased to promote Gasper to Chief Operating Officer.

Tattooed Chef: Continuing Growth
Tattooed Chef's stock has been range-bound for about a year, and today is a period where the company's stock is in the lower end of the range. Therefore, because I believe that the company's financials are great, valuations low, and executions exceptional, I believe the recent fears surrounding Tattooed Chef are only creating opportunities for long-term investors.
It's looking like TTCF may have a good day.
Tattooed Chef, Inc. (NASDAQ: TTCF) CEO Sam Galletti: “Tattooed Chef Positioned to be Generational Brand in Plant-Based Foods”

If they only sold one meal a day at each of the 1200 locations that comes out over $2,000,000 a year in sales. If Publix wasn't sure that their sales would be much greater than 1 meal per store per day they would never put the produt product in their stores. And Publix is just one of several retailers the products are in.
