Monsanto Company Enters into $3 Billion Five-Year Revolving Credit Agreement

On March 27, 2015, Monsanto Company entered into a $3 billion, five-year revolving credit agreement (the Five-Year Credit Agreement) with certain lender parties thereto, JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A., as administrative agent, Citibank, N.A., Bank of America, N.A. and Morgan Stanley Senior Funding Inc., as co-syndication agents, Barclays Bank plc, Goldman Sachs Bank USA, The Bank of Tokyo-Mitsubishi UFJ Ltd. and Wells Fargo Bank, National Association, as co-documentation agents, and J.P.

Under the terms of the Five-Year Credit Agreement, the company may obtain and utilize from time to time up to $3 billion, the amount of the aggregate commitments of the lenders, in revolving credit loans and competitive bid advances for general corporate purposes.

Additionally, up to $200 million of the total credit facility is available to the company for swing line loans in US Dollars, available on a same-day basis. The Five-Year Credit Agreement expires on March 27, 2020. Under circumstances specified in the Five-Year Credit Agreement, the company may request up to two one-year extensions of such termination date. The company has the right, subject to certain conditions set in the Five-Year Credit Agreement, to designate foreign subsidiaries of the company as borrowers under the Five-Year Credit Agreement.
