|Item 1.01||Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.|
On June 11, 2020, LKQ Corporation ("LKQ" or the "Company") and certain other subsidiaries of LKQ (collectively, the "Borrowers") entered into Amendment No. 4 to the Fourth Amended and Restated Credit Agreement dated January 29, 2016 (the "Credit Agreement") with the several lenders from time to time party thereto; Wells Fargo Bank, National Association, as administrative agent; Bank of America, N.A. and MUFG Bank, Ltd. ("MUFG") as syndication agents; Citizens Bank, N.A., Truist Bank, BBVA Compass, PNC Bank, National Association; HSBC Bank USA, National Association; TD Bank, N.A.; and Capital One, National Association, as documentation agents; and Wells Fargo Securities, LLC, Merrill Lynch, Pierce, Fenner & Smith Incorporated, and MUFG, as joint bookrunners and joint lead arrangers.
Amendment No. 4 to the Credit Agreement modifies the maximum permitted net leverage ratio through the quarter ending September 30, 2021. Net leverage ratio is defined in the Credit Agreement as the ratio at the end of each fiscal quarter of (a) Consolidated Net Indebtedness to (b) Consolidated EBITDA (as such terms are defined in the Credit Agreement) for the four consecutive fiscal quarters ending with the fiscal quarter being measured. Prior to the amendment, the maximum permitted net leverage ratio was 4.00:1.00. After the amendment, the maximum permitted net leverage ratio is (i) 5.00:1.00 for the quarters ending June 30, 2020, September 30, 2020, December 31, 2020 and March 31, 2021, (ii) 4.50:1.00 for the quarter ending June 30, 2021, and (iii) 4.25:1.00 for the quarter ending September 30, 2021. Beginning with the quarter ending December 31, 2021, the maximum permitted net leverage ratio reverts to the terms in effect prior to the amendment. In the event that the net leverage ratio is greater than 4.00:1.00, the Company would be restricted from repurchasing its shares. The Company can at any time elect to cancel the modifications to the maximum permitted net leverage ratio and revert to the terms in effect prior to the amendment subject to compliance with the 4.00:1.00 ratio. Amendment No. 4 to the Credit Agreement also made certain other immaterial modifications.
The LIBOR market rate spread and commitment fee by net leverage ratio under the amendment are as follows:
