Item 1.01. Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

Amendment to Credit Agreement

On December 18, 2019, Horizon Therapeutics USA, Inc. (the “Borrower”), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Horizon Therapeutics plc, a public limited company organized under the laws of Ireland (“Parent” or the “Company”), borrowed $418,026,000 aggregate principal amount of loans (the “Refinancing Loans”) pursuant to an amendment (the “Refinancing Amendment”) to the Credit Agreement, dated as of May 7, 2015 (as amended by Amendment No. 1, dated as of October 25, 2016, Amendment No. 2, dated as of March 29, 2017, Amendment No. 3, dated as of October 23, 2017, Amendment No. 4, dated as of October 19, 2018, Amendment No. 5, dated as of March 11, 2019 and Amendment No. 6 dated as of May 22, 2019), by and among the Borrower, the Company, certain subsidiaries of the Company party thereto as subsidiary guarantors, the lenders party thereto from time to time and Citibank, N.A., as administrative agent and collateral agent (as amended by the Refinancing Amendment, the “Credit Agreement”). The Refinancing Loans were incurred as a separate new class of term loans under the Credit Agreement with substantially the same terms as the previously outstanding senior secured term loans incurred on May 22, 2019 (the “Refinanced Loans”) to effectuate a repricing of the Refinanced Loans. The Borrower used the proceeds of the Refinancing Loans to repay the Refinanced Loans, which totaled $418,026,000. The Credit Agreement provides for (i) the Refinancing Loans, (ii) $200,000,000 aggregate principal amount of revolving commitments pursuant to an incremental facility which provides the Borrower with $200,000,000 of additional borrowing capacity, which includes a $50,000,000 letter of credit sub-facility, (iii) one or more uncommitted additional incremental loan facilities subject to the satisfaction of certain financial and other conditions, and (iv) one or more uncommitted refinancing loan facilities with respect to loans thereunder. The Credit Agreement allows for the Parent and certain other subsidiaries of the Parent to become borrowers under incremental or refinancing facilities.

The obligations under the Credit Agreement (including obligations in respect of the Refinancing Loans) and any swap obligations and cash management obligations owing to a lender (or an affiliate of a lender) are guaranteed by the Company and each of the Company’s existing and subsequently acquired or formed direct and indirect subsidiaries (other than certain immaterial subsidiaries, subsidiaries whose guarantee would result in material adverse tax consequences and subsidiaries whose guarantee is prohibited by applicable law). The obligations under the Credit Agreement (including obligations in respect of the Refinancing Loans) and any such swap and cash management obligations are secured, subject to customary permitted liens and other agreed upon exceptions, by a perfected security interest in (i) all tangible and intangible assets of the Borrower and the guarantors, except for certain customary excluded assets, and (ii) all of the capital stock owned by the Borrower and guarantors thereunder (limited, in the case of the stock of certain non-U.S. subsidiaries of the Borrower, to 65% of the capital stock of such subsidiaries). The Borrower and the guarantors under the Credit Agreement are individually and collectively referred to herein as a “Loan Party” and the “Loan Parties,” as applicable.

The Borrower is permitted to make voluntary prepayments of the loans under the Credit Agreement at any time without payment of a premium, except that with respect to the Refinancing Loans, a 1% premium will apply to a repayment of the Refinancing Loans in connection with a repricing of, or any amendment to the Credit Agreement in a repricing of, such loans effected on or prior to the date that is six months following December 18, 2019. The Borrower is required to make mandatory prepayments of loans under the Credit Agreement (without payment of a premium) with (a) net cash proceeds from certain non-ordinary course asset sales (subject to reinvestment rights and other exceptions), (b) casualty proceeds and condemnation awards (subject to reinvestment rights and other exceptions), (c) net cash proceeds from issuances of debt (other than certain permitted debt), and (d) 50% of the Company’s excess cash flow (subject to decrease to 25% or 0% if the Company’s first lien leverage ratio is less than 2.25:1 or 1.75:1, respectively). The principal amount of the Refinancing Loans are due and payable on May 22, 2026, the final maturity date of the Refinancing Loans.

The interest rate applicable to the Refinancing Loans is the London Inter-Bank Offered Rate (“LIBOR”), plus 2.25% (subject to a 0.00% LIBOR floor) with a step-down to LIBOR plus 2.00% at the time the Company’s leverage ratio is less than or equal to 2.00 to 1.00.

The Credit Agreement contains customary representations and warranties and customary affirmative and negative covenants, including, among other things, restrictions on indebtedness, liens, investments, mergers, dispositions, prepayment of other indebtedness and dividends and other distributions.

Events of default under the Credit Agreement include: (i) the failure by the Borrower to timely make payments due under the Credit Agreement; (ii) material misrepresentations or misstatements in any representation or warranty by any Loan Party when made; (iii) failure by any Loan Party to comply with the covenants under the Credit Agreement and other related agreements; (iv) certain defaults under a specified amount of other indebtedness of the Company or its subsidiaries; (v) insolvency or bankruptcy-related events with respect to the Company or any of its material subsidiaries; (vi) certain undischarged judgments against the Company or any of its restricted subsidiaries; (vii) certain ERISA-related events reasonably expected to have a material adverse effect on the Company and its restricted subsidiaries taken as a whole; (viii) certain security interests or liens under the loan documents ceasing to be, or being asserted by the Company or its restricted subsidiaries not to be, in full force and effect; (ix) any loan document or material provision thereof ceasing to be, or any challenge or assertion by any Loan Party that such loan document or material provision is not, in full force and effect; and (x) the occurrence of a change of control. If one or more events of default occurs and continues beyond any applicable cure period, the administrative agent may, with the consent of the lenders holding a majority of the loans and commitments under the facilities, or will, at the request of such lenders, terminate the commitments of the lenders to make further loans and declare all of the obligations of the Loan Parties under the Credit Agreement to be immediately due and payable.


The foregoing description of the Refinancing Amendment and the Refinancing Loans is not intended to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Refinancing Amendment, a copy of which is attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1, and the original Credit Agreement and prior amendments, copies of which have been previously filed by Parent with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.
