Item 7.01 Regulation FD Disclosure.
On March 10, 2023, the California Department of Financial Protection and Innovation took possession of Silicon Valley Bank, N.A. (“SVB”) and the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation was appointed as receiver. Progress Software Corporation (the “Company”) currently does not maintain any cash deposits or operating accounts with SVB. While SVB is one of the lenders under the Company’s Third Amended and Restated Credit Agreement, SVB has no outstanding funding obligations to the Company. In addition, although the Company has previously purchased certain fixed-income securities through SVB, such securities are held by U.S. Bank as custodian. Therefore, the Company currently believes that the liquidity concerns at SVB will not cause any disruption to our business, operations, access to capital or liquidity, or lead to any material loss exposure.
On March 12, 2023, the New York Department of Financial Services took possession of Signature Bridge Bank, N.A. and the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation was appointed as receiver. The Company currently does not have any relationships with Signature Bridge Bank, N.A.
