Item 1.01. Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

On May 10, 2012, CDW LLC (“CDW”), CDW Finance Corporation (“FinanceCo” and together with CDW, the “Issuers”), CDW Corporation (“Parent”), certain other wholly owned guarantors (the “Subsidiary Guarantors” and together with the Parent, the “Guarantors”) and U.S. Bank National Association, as trustee (the “Trustee”), entered into each of the Second Senior Secured Note Supplemental Indenture, the Third Senior Subordinated Note Supplemental Indenture and the Fourth Senior Note Supplemental Indenture (collectively, the “Supplemental Indentures”) The Supplemental Indentures amend the Issuers’ existing indentures to, among other things, eliminate the ability to release the Parent’s guarantee, such that Parent’s guarantees are “full and unconditional” in accordance with guidance from the staff of the Securities and Exchange Commission. These amendments were effected pursuant to a provision in each of the indentures which permits the Issuers, the Guarantors and the Trustee to amend each of the indentures without notice to or consent of any noteholder in order to make any change that does not adversely affect the noteholders’ legal rights under the applicable indenture, provided that such changes shall not adversely affect the noteholders’ interests in any material respect, as determined in good faith by CDW’s board of directors.

Each of the Second Senior Secured Note Supplemental Indenture, the Third Senior Subordinated Note Supplemental Indenture and the Fourth Senior Note Supplemental Indenture is respectively attached hereto as Exhibit 4.1, Exhibit 4.2 and Exhibit 4.3 and is incorporated by reference herein.
