Item 1.01. Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

On June 23, 2021 (the “Effective Date”), Grosvenor Capital Management Holdings, LLLP (the “Borrower”), Grosvenor Holdings, L.L.C. (“Holdings”), Grosvenor Holdings II, L.L.C., GCM Grosvenor Management, LLC, GCM Grosvenor Holdings, LLC, GCM, L.L.C., the guarantors and GP Entities (as defined therein) party thereto, the lenders party thereto, and Morgan Stanley Senior Funding, Inc., as administrative agent, collateral agent and swingline lender, entered into a sixth amendment (the “Amendment”) to the Borrower’s credit agreement, dated as of January 2, 2014 (as amended, amended and restated, modified or supplemented from time to time, the “Credit Agreement”).

Pursuant to the Amendment, the Borrower borrowed $110.0 million in aggregate principal amount of incremental term loans (the “Incremental Term Loans”), which constitute the same class of term loans under the Credit Agreement as those initially borrowed in February 2021 (the “Existing Term Loans” and, together with the Incremental Term Loans, the “Term Loans”). The interest rate applicable to the Incremental Term Loans is the same as the Existing Term Loans.

The Credit Agreement requires the Borrower to repay 1.0% of the original aggregate principal amount of the Term Loans per annum in equal quarterly amounts, with the remaining balance due at maturity. The Term Loans may be prepaid in whole or in part at any time without penalty, except that any prepayment in connection with a repricing transaction within six months of the Effective Date will be subject to a 1.0% prepayment premium. The other material terms of the Credit Agreement remain unchanged by the Amendment.

The proceeds of the Incremental Term Loans will be used (i) to fund the previously announced repurchase of certain fund investments and rights to future carry associated with Mosaic Acquisitions 2020, L.P. from an investor affiliated with the Canada Pension Plan Investment Board, and (ii) to pay transaction fees and expenses.

The foregoing description of the Amendment is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Amendment, a copy of which is filed as Exhibit 10.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and is incorporated herein by reference.

Item 2.03.  Creation of a Direct Financial Obligation or an Obligation under an Off-Balance Sheet Arrangement of a Registrant.

The information set forth under Item 1.01 above is incorporated by reference into this Item 2.03.
