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


As previously disclosed, Foot Locker, Inc. (the “Company”) and certain of its domestic subsidiaries are parties to a credit agreement (the “Credit Agreement”), dated as of May 19, 2016, with the lenders party thereto, and Wells Fargo Bank, National Association, as agent, letter of credit issuer, and swing line lender, which governs the Company’s secured $400 million asset-based revolving credit facility (the “Revolving Credit Facility”). During the term of the Credit Agreement, the Company may increase the commitments under the Credit Agreement by up to $200 million, subject to customary conditions, including the obtaining of agreements from lenders to provide such commitment increase. The Revolving Credit Facility matures on May 19, 2021. The material terms of the Revolving Credit Facility are described in (i) the “Capital Structure” section of the Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended February 2, 2019 filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) on April 2, 2019, and (ii) the Current Report on Form 8-K filed with the SEC on May 19, 2016, which descriptions are incorporated by reference herein.


On March 18, 2020, the Company provided notice to the lenders to borrow an aggregate principal amount of $330 million under the Revolving Credit Facility. Prior to such notice, there were no loan amounts outstanding under the Revolving Credit Facility, other than de minimis amounts used to support standby letters of credit.


The Company borrowed under the Revolving Credit Facility as a precautionary measure in order to increase its cash position and preserve financial flexibility in light of current uncertainty in the global markets resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic. In accordance with the terms of the Revolving Credit Facility, the proceeds from the Revolving Credit Facility borrowings may be used for working capital, general corporate purposes, or other purposes permitted under the Revolving Credit Facility.
