Aug 11 15
On August 7, 2015, Tyco International Finance S.A. entered into an Amended and Restated Five-Year Senior Unsecured Credit Agreement among TIFSA, as the borrower, Tyco as Guarantor, each of the initial lenders named therein, Citibank, N.A. as administrative agent, and Citigroup Global Markets Inc., J.P. Morgan Securities LLC and Merrill Lynch Pierce, Fenner & Smith, as bookrunners and lead arrangers, providing for revolving credit commitments in the aggregate amount of $1,500,000,000 (the New Credit Agreement"). The New Credit Agreement amends and restates TIFSA's existing Five-Year Senior Unsecured Credit Agreement, dated June 22, 2012, which provided for revolving credit commitments in the aggregate amount of $1,000,000,000, and which was scheduled to expire in June 2017. The New Credit Agreement has a scheduled maturity date of August 7, 2020 and includes an option for TIFSA to extend, on the first and second anniversaries of the effective date, the term of the facility for successive one-year periods, subject to, among certain other terms and conditions, the consent of lenders holding greater than 50% of the commitments then outstanding under the agreement. The New Credit Agreement also includes an option for the borrower to request an increase in the aggregate principal amount of the commitments, subject to satisfying the conditions therefor, including obtaining increased commitments from the lenders or new commitments from third-party financial institutions. The commitments under the New Credit Agreement may be increased up to the amount of $1,750,000,000. Borrowings under the New Credit Agreement may be borrowed in U.S. dollars and used for general corporate purposes. The obligations under the Agreement are unconditionally and irrevocably guaranteed by Tyco and by Tyco Fire & Security Finance S.C.A., an indirect wholly owned subsidiary of Tyco. No proceeds from the New Credit Agreement were drawn down at closing. Borrowings under the New Credit Agreement will bear interest at a rate per annum equal to, at the option of the borrower, LIBOR plus an applicable margin based on the corporate credit ratings of TIFSA, or an alternate base rate equal to the high of Citibank, N.A.'s base rate, the federal funds effective rate plus 1/2 of 1% and one-month LIBOR plus 1%, in each case plus an applicable margin based on the corporate credit ratings of TIFSA. The New Credit Agreement also requires payment to the lenders of a facility fee on the amount of the lenders' commitments under the facility from time to time at rates based on the applicable corporate credit ratings of TIFSA. Voluntary prepayments on the loans and voluntary reductions of the unutilized portion of the commitments under the facility are permissible without penalty, subject to certain conditions pertaining to minimum notice and minimum reduction amounts.
