Item 1.01Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

On April 28, 2020, International Paper Company (the “Company”) entered into an amendment (the “Amendment”) to its Second Amended and Restated Credit and Security Agreement (the “Credit Agreement”) by and among Red Bird Receivables, LLC, as borrower, the Company, as servicer, the lenders and co-agents from time to time party thereto, and Mizuho Bank, Ltd., as administrative agent (the “Administrative Agent”).

The Amendment reduces the amount available for borrowing from $600 million to $550 million, extends the maturity date for two years to April 27, 2022, and changes the facility from uncommitted to committed. The Amendment also requires repayment of any outstanding loans under the Credit Agreement or replacement of the Administrative Agent and its lender group if the Company is unable to extend the commitments under the Credit Agreement, dated as of December 12, 2016, among the Company, the lenders party thereto from time to time party and J.P. Morgan Chase Bank N.A., as administrative agent (as amended, supplemented or otherwise modified from time to time, the “Revolving Credit Facility”) prior to the currently scheduled termination date thereof, or the commitments under the Revolving Credit Facility are otherwise terminated by the Company.

The foregoing description of the Amendment does not purport to be complete, and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Amendment, a copy of which will be filed as an exhibit to an amendment to this Current Report on Form 8-K.
