Item 8.01  Other Information. 

Extension of Forbearance.    As previously disclosed, on June 27, 2017, Cherokee, Inc. (the “Company”) obtained a forbearance from Cerberus Business Finance, LLC (“Cerberus”) regarding the Company’s failure to comply with certain covenants set forth in the Company’s senior secured credit facility with Cerberus (the “Cerberus Credit Facility”). Pursuant to the forbearance, Cerberus agreed that it would not exercise its rights or remedies under the Cerberus Credit Facility solely with respect to these events of default through July 7, 2017, which was subsequently extended through July 14, 2017. On July 13, 2017, the Company obtained a further extension of the forbearance through July 28, 2017. The Company intends to seek a waiver of the events of default and/or amend certain terms of the Cerberus Credit Facility during the forbearance period, but such a waiver or amendment may not be obtained, or if obtained, may not be obtained in a timely manner, on terms favorable to the Company or at all. Any failure to obtain such a waiver or amendment within the forbearance period would subject the Company to significant risks, including Cerberus’s right to terminate its obligations under the Cerberus Credit Facility, declare all or any portion of the borrowed amounts then outstanding to be accelerated and due and payable, and/or exercise any other rights or remedies it may have under applicable law, including foreclosing on the Company’s and/or its subsidiaries assets that serve as collateral for the borrowed amounts.





Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.



Cherokee Inc.
