Item 1.01  Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.


                On February 6, 2008 our Astrotech subsidiary consummated a financing facility with a commercial bank. This facility provides for a $4.0 million term loan, payable in monthly installments of principal and interest based upon a 15 year amortization and a $2.0 million revolving credit facility. The interest rate on the credit facility is prime plus 1.75% (9.0% as of December 31, 2007). The unused revolving credit facility balance is subject to a charge of 0.5%. Funds available under the revolving credit facility are limited to 80% of eligible accounts receivable, and we are subject to various financial and other covenants based upon our Astrotech subsidiary, including a minimum tangible net worth covenant, a liability to tangible net worth covenant, and a debt service coverage covenant. The three-year term loan is secured by the assets of our Astrotech subsidiary and the one-year revolving credit facility is also secured by Astrotech’s accounts receivable.
