On November 15, 2016, Huntsman International LLC entered into the Sixteenth Amendment to Credit Agreement with JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A., as administrative agent, and the other financial institutions party thereto. Among other things, the amendment provides for a new term loan facility in an aggregate principal amount of $350 million (the 2021 Term B Loans) and a new term loan facility in an aggregate principal amount of $1,375 million (the 2023 Term B Loans), the proceeds of which were, in each case used, together with cash on hand, to repay in full HI’s 2014-1 Additional Term Loans due 2021 and HI’s 2016 Term B Loans due 2023. The 2021 Term B Loans have a stated maturity date of October 1, 2021 and the 2023 Term B Loans have a stated maturity date of April 1, 2023, in each case, with a springing maturity date in the event that certain earlier-maturing senior notes issued by HI are not repaid or refinanced prior to their maturity date and HI does not have sufficient cash or available lines of credit at such time. The 2021 Term B Loans and the 2023 Term B Loans bear interest at a rate per annum equal to an applicable margin plus, at the HI’s option, either LIBOR (which is subject to a 0.75% floor) or base rate (which is subject to a 1.75% floor). The margin for borrowings under the 2021 Term B Loan Facility are 2.75% for LIBOR and 1.75% for base rate. The margin for borrowings under the 2023 Term B Loan Facility are 3.00% for LIBOR and 2.00% for base rate. The 2021 Term B Loans and the 2023 Term B Loans will amortize in an amount equal to 1% of the principal amount of the 2021 Term B Loans or 2023 Term B Loans, respectively, payable quarterly commencing on December 31, 2016.
