Item 1.01

Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

On December 22, 2020, Apollo Investment Corporation (the “Company”) amended and restated its senior secured, multi-currency, revolving credit facility (the “Amended & Restated Facility”). Lender commitments under the Amended & Restated Facility will remain $1.81 billion through November 19, 2022 and will decrease to $1.705 billion thereafter. The Amended and Restated Facility among other things, (a) extended the expiration of the commitments from November 19, 2022 to December 22, 2024 (b) extended the stated maturity date from November 19, 2023 to December 22, 2025 and (c) amended the Minimum Shareholders’ Equity covenant to provide that the Company will not permit the Shareholders’ Equity to be less than the greater of (x) 30% of assets and (y) $705 million plus 25% of the net proceeds of sale of common equity interests after the effective date of the Amended & Restated Facility.

The terms and conditions of the Amended and Restated Facility are substantially the same as those in the prior facility. The pricing remains unchanged under the Amended & Restated Facility. The Amended & Restated Facility includes an “accordion” feature that allows the Company to increase the size of the Amended & Restated Facility to $2.715 billion. The Amended & Restated Facility includes updated provisions regarding the unavailability of LIBOR, including an updated fallback that would apply in the absence of LIBOR.

Under the Amended & Restated Facility, the Company has made certain representations and warranties and is still required to comply with various covenants, reporting requirements and other customary requirements for similar revolving credit facilities. The Amended & Restated Facility continues to include usual and customary events of default for senior secured revolving credit facilities of this type.

Borrowings under the Amended & Restated Facility (and the incurrence of certain other permitted debt) continue to be subject to compliance with a Borrowing Base that applies different advance rates to different types of assets in the Company’s portfolio. The advance rate applicable to any specific type of asset in the Company’s portfolio depends on the relevant asset coverage ratio as of the date of determination. Borrowings under the Amended & Restated Facility continue to be subject to the leverage restrictions contained in the Investment Company Act of 1940, as amended.

Terms used in the foregoing paragraphs have the meanings set forth in the Amended & Restated Facility. The description above is only a summary of the material provisions of the Amended & Restated Facility and does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the provisions in such Amended & Restated Facility, which is attached hereto as Exhibit 10.1.
