The Third Amended and Restated Credit Agreement, among other things, (1) refinances and replaces the existing term loan A and revolver with a new term loan A in an aggregate principal amount of $313 million that matures in five years, and a new five-year revolving credit facility with aggregate commitments of $2.0 billion, (2) utilizes the Company’s existing sustainability-linked metrics and commitments, that, if achieved, would reduce the overall cost, (3) removes the prior provisions that increased the leverage ratio maintenance covenant from 3.5:1 to 4.5:1 until July 1, 2021 and the related restrictions on dividends and other payments on equity, and (4) includes a financial maintenance covenant that will be tested quarterly and requires the Company to maintain total net leverage (as calculated in accordance with the Third Amended and Restated Credit Agreement) of less than 3.5:1 (or 4.0:1 for four full fiscal quarters following completion of material acquisitions).
The Company has no material relationships with any of the lenders under the Third Amended and Restated Credit Agreement, except that affiliates of certain lenders have acted as underwriters in connection with offerings by the Company.
The description of the Third Amended and Restated Credit Agreement contained herein is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Third Amended and Restated Credit Agreement, a copy of which is included as Exhibit 10.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and is incorporated herein by reference.
