Revolving Credit Facility Renewal
On October 22, 2021, the Company renewed the credit agreement governing its $1.0 billion revolving credit facility and term loan B, extending the end of the commitment period of the revolving credit facility from May 2023 to October 2026. This renewal terminated the Relief Period established by the July 15, 2020 Credit Agreement Amendment. The renewal stipulates a first lien leverage ratio financial covenant not to exceed 4.75 to 1.0 commencing with the December 31, 2021 period through June 30, 2022, after which time it will return to 4.25 to 1.0, the level in existence prior to the effective date of the Credit Agreement Amendment. The renewal also increased the interest coverage ratio (as defined in the Credit Agreement) to 2.5 to 1.0, the level existing prior to the effective date of the Credit Agreement Amendment, and eliminated restrictions regarding share repurchases, dividends, acquisitions, and the Relief Period minimum liquidity covenant.

The renewal reestablishes the annual interest rate in existence prior to the Credit Agreement Amendment which is equal to, at the Company’s option, either a base rate plus a margin ranging from 0.75% to 1.25% or LIBOR plus a margin ranging from 1.75% to 2.25%, in either case based upon the Company’s first lien leverage ratio.
