Spirit AeroSystems, Inc. Enters into Amendment No. 5 to its Senior Secured Credit Agreement
Mar 24 15
On March 18, 2015, Spirit AeroSystems Holdings, Inc. entered into amendment no. 5 to its senior secured credit agreement, dated as of April 18, 2012, among Spirit AeroSystems, Inc., as borrower, the company, as parent guarantor, the subsidiary guarantors party thereto, the lenders party thereto, Bank of America, N.A., as administrative agent and collateral agent, and the other agents named therein. The amendment provides for a new $535 million senior secured term loan A (the new term loan) with a maturity date of March 18, 2020, which replaces the term loan B with an amount outstanding of approximately $534.9 million (the term loan B) that was scheduled to mature on September 15, 2020. The new term loan bears interest, at Spirit's option, at either LIBOR plus 1.75% or a defined base rate plus 0.75%, subject to adjustment to amounts between and including LIBOR plus 1.75% and LIBOR plus 2.50% (or amounts between and including base rate plus 0.75% and base rate plus 1.50%, as applicable) based on changes to Spirit's debt-to-EBITDA ratio. The principal obligations under the new term loan are to be repaid in equal quarterly installments of $6,687,500, with the balance due at maturity of the new term loan. The credit agreement maintains substantially the same prepayment requirements and covenant structure, and provides the company with some additional flexibility with respect to certain activities. Spirit used the proceeds of the new term loan to pay off the term loan B and to pay a portion of the fees and expenses payable in connection with the amendment.

Judge Dismisses Age Discrimination Suit Against Boeing Co. and Spirit AeroSystems
Jan 8 15
A federal judge dismissed the remaining age-discrimination claims against Boeing Co. and Spirit AeroSystems that were part of a lawsuit that has stretched out over nine years. U.S. District Judge Eric Melgren dismissed the claims of the remaining 26 plaintiffs in the case, as a sanction for their refusal to obey a court order directing them to provide their tax returns to the companies. Ninety former Boeing employees had claimed in the suit that they lost their jobs due to their ages when Boeing sold its Wichita-based commercial aircraft operations to the parent company of Spirit AeroSystems in 2005.
