Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.


On August 30, 2019, WesBanco, Inc. (“WesBanco”) entered into an Amended and Restated Committed Line of Credit Note and Letter Agreement (the “Facility”) with PNC Bank, N.A. (“PNC”) providing for a line of credit for general corporate purposes up to $30.0 million with an expiration date of August 29, 2020.  This Note amends and restates, and is in substitution for, that certain Committed Line of Credit Note in the original principal amount of $25.0 million and dated September 5, 2014.


The Facility provides for revolving advances and a one-time election to convert all or a portion of the outstanding principal into a term loan (the “Conversion Amount”) which may be repaid in consecutive monthly installments over two years following the conversion date, based on a four year amortization with a balloon payment on the second anniversary of the conversion election.  The principal amount available to be borrowed under the Line of Credit will be permanently reduced by the Conversion Amount and as principal is repaid on the term loan it cannot be re-borrowed, and at no time can the amount outstanding on the Note exceed $30 million in aggregate.


Under the Facility, outstanding advances and any term loan bear interest generally at an adjusted rate, determined based upon a spread above LIBOR or PNC’s Base Rate (as therein defined) and require the payment of consecutive quarterly installments of interest.  Should LIBOR be unavailable to use, PNC will convert the rate to the Base Rate.  


The foregoing description of the terms and conditions of the Facility is not complete and is qualified in all respects by the actual provisions of the Facility, a copy of which has been filed as an exhibit 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.
