Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.
On June 9, 2021, Dominion Energy, Inc. (Dominion Energy) and its wholly-owned subsidiaries, Virginia Electric and Power Company (Virginia Power), Questar Gas Company (Questar Gas) and Dominion Energy South Carolina, Inc. (DESC), entered into a $6,000,000,000 Fifth Amended and Restated Revolving Credit Agreement (the Core Credit Facility) with JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A., as Administrative Agent, Mizuho Bank, Ltd. (Mizuho), Bank of America, N.A., The Bank of Nova Scotia and Wells Fargo Bank, N.A., as Syndication Agents, J.P. Morgan Securities LLC and Mizuho, as Co-Sustainability Structuring Agent, and the other lenders named therein.
The primary purpose of the Core Credit Facility, which amends and restates its predecessor agreement (the Prior Facility) in its entirety, is to link a discount in pricing of certain fees to be paid and amounts borrowed by Dominion Energy under the Core Credit Facility to Dominion Energy’s achievement of annual renewable electric generation and diversity and inclusion objectives. The changes introduced in the Core Credit Facility otherwise do not affect the economic terms under the Prior Facility. The Core Credit Facility also incorporates certain administrative and related changes, including with respect to the anticipated transition from the London Inter-Bank Offered Rate to an alternative benchmark rate.
Dominion Energy and the co-borrowers can use the Core Credit Facility to support bank borrowings and the issuance of commercial paper, as well as to support the issuance of letters of credit. The changes reflected in the Core Credit Facility are not expected to have any material impact on the annual cost or availability of funds to Dominion Energy. The full amount of the Core Credit Facility is available to Dominion Energy less any amounts outstanding to co-borrowers Virginia Power, Questar Gas and DESC and subject to any sub-limits for Dominion Energy agreed to among Dominion Energy and the co-borrowers from time to time. The Core Credit Facility matures in June 2026, unless extended.
Also on June 9, 2021, Dominion Energy entered into a $900,000,000 Sustainability Revolving Credit Agreement (the Supplemental Credit Facility, and, together with the Core Credit Facility, the Credit Facilities) with Sumitomo Mitsui Banking Corporation (SMBC), as Administrative Agent and Sustainability Coordinator, SMBC, The Bank of Nova Scotia and The Toronto-Dominion Bank, New York Branch, as Joint Lead Arrangers and Joint Bookrunners, and the other lenders named therein.
The Supplemental Credit Facility offers a reduced interest rate margin with respect to borrowed amounts allocated to certain environmental sustainability or social justice initiatives. Proceeds of the Supplemental Credit Facility also may be used for general corporate purposes, but such proceeds will not be eligible for a reduced interest rate margin. Dominion Energy intends to use proceeds of the Supplemental Credit Facility to support green and social investment initiatives and for general corporate purposes. The Supplemental Credit Facility matures in June 2024.
The foregoing description of the Credit Facilities does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the complete text of such agreements, copies of which are filed as Exhibit 10.1 and Exhibit 10.2 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and are incorporated by reference herein.
