On February 22, 2022, Tetra Tech, Inc. (the “Company”) announced that it has entered into an Amendment No. 2 to Second Amended and Restated Credit Agreement, dated as of February 18, 2022, among the Company, Tetra Tech Canada Holding Corporation, Tetra Tech UK Holdings Limited (formerly known as Coffey UK Limited), Tetra Tech Coffey Pty., Ltd. (formerly known as Coffey Services Australia Pty. Ltd.), Bank of America, N.A., as Administrative Agent, the subsidiary guarantors and the lenders party thereto (the “Credit Agreement”). The Credit Agreement is a senior secured, five-year facility that provides for a $250 million term loan facility (the “Term Loan Facility”), a $500 million revolving credit facility (the “Revolving Credit Facility”), and the ability to increase the facility by an additional $300 million at the Company’s request (the “Incremental Commitment”).

 

The Credit Agreement allows the Company to, among other things, (i) refinance the indebtedness under the Company’s Credit Agreement dated as of July 30, 2018; (ii) finance certain permitted open market repurchases of the Company’s common stock, permitted acquisitions, and cash dividends and distributions; and (iii) utilize the proceeds for working capital, capital expenditures and other general corporate purposes. The Credit Agreement provides for a reduction in the interest rate grid for meeting certain sustainability targets related to the (i) reduction of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions through the Company’s projects and operational sustainability initiatives and (ii) improvement of people’s lives as a result of the Company’s projects that provide environmental, social and governance benefits.

 

The Credit Agreement contains certain affirmative and restrictive covenants, and customary events of default. The Company’s obligations under the Credit Agreement are guaranteed by certain of the Company’s subsidiaries and are secured by first priority liens. The Credit Agreement expires on February 18, 2027, or earlier at the Company’s discretion upon payment in full of loans and other obligations.

 

The description of the Credit Agreement contained herein is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the agreement, a copy of which is filed as Exhibit 10.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K. A copy of the press release is attached to this Current Report as Exhibit 99.1.
