Item 1.01.

Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

Second Supplemental Indenture and Notes

On July 1, 2021, the Company issued $750 million aggregate principal amount of 2.500% senior notes due 2031 (the “Notes”) under an Indenture dated as of May 8, 2009 (the “Base Indenture”), between the Company and The Bank of New York Mellon Trust Company, N.A., as trustee (the “Trustee”), as amended and supplemented by the Second Supplemental Indenture thereto, dated as of July 1, 2021 (the “Second Supplemental Indenture” and, together with the Base Indenture, the “Indenture”), between the Company and the Trustee.

Interest on the Notes is payable on January 1 and July 1 of each year, beginning on January 1, 2022, at a rate of 2.500% per year, and the Notes mature on July 1, 2031. None of our existing or future subsidiaries guarantee the Notes.

Ranking

The Notes are senior unsecured obligations of the Company and rank equally in right of payment to all existing and any future unsubordinated indebtedness of the Company. The Notes are effectively subordinated to all future secured indebtedness and other secured obligations of the Company to the extent of the value of the assets securing such indebtedness or other obligations.

Optional Redemption

At any time prior to April 1, 2031, the Company may redeem the Notes, in whole or in part, from time to time, at a redemption price equal to the greater of (a) 100% of the aggregate principal amount of the Notes redeemed; and (b) the sum of the present values of the remaining scheduled payments of principal and interest (excluding interest accrued to the redemption date) on the Notes to be redeemed from the redemption date to April 1, 2031, discounted to the redemption date on a semi-annual basis (assuming a 360-day year consisting of twelve 30-day months) at the Treasury Rate plus 20 basis points.

At any time on or after April 1, 2031, the Company may redeem the Notes, in whole or in part, at a redemption price equal to 100% of the principal amount of the Notes being redeemed, plus accrued and unpaid interest, if any, on the principal amount of the Notes being redeemed to, but excluding, the applicable redemption date.

Change of Control

If the Company experiences certain events that constitute a change of control triggering event, the Company must offer to repurchase the Notes at a repurchase price equal to 101% of the principal amount of the Notes repurchased, plus accrued and unpaid interest, if any, to, but excluding, the date of purchase.

Covenants

The Second Supplemental Indenture contains certain covenants that, among other things, impose restrictions on the business of the Company and its majority-owned subsidiaries. The restrictions that these covenants place on the Company and its majority-owned subsidiaries include limitations on their ability to:

 

   

create liens;

 

   

enter into sale/leaseback transactions; and

 

   

merge or consolidate with or convey, transfer of lease all or substantially all of the properties and assets of the Company.


Events of Default

The Second Supplemental Indenture also provides for certain events of default which, if any of them occurs, would permit or require the principal of and accrued interest on the Notes to become or to be declared due and payable.

The terms of the Notes, the Base Indenture and the Second Supplemental Indenture are further described in the Prospectus Supplement dated June 17, 2021 relating to the Notes, filed with the Commission on June 21, 2021 (the “Prospectus Supplement”), under the caption “Description of the notes,” and the accompanying Prospectus dated November 6, 2018, under the captions “Description of debt securities” and “Description of guarantees of certain debt securities.” The descriptions do not purport to be complete and are qualified by reference to the Base Indenture, the Second Supplemental Indenture and the form of Notes, which are filed as Exhibits 4.1, 4.2 and 4.3, respectively, to this Current Report and are incorporated herein by reference.

Credit Agreement

On July 1, 2021, the Company entered into an unsecured revolving credit facility agreement with the lenders identified therein and JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A., as the administrative agent, issuing bank and swingline lender thereunder (the “Credit Agreement”). Also on July 1, 2021, and in connection with the issuance of the Notes and the entry into the Credit Agreement, the Company will pay in full and terminate each of its (a) Third Amended and Restated Credit Agreement, dated as of October 30, 2014 (as amended, restated, amended and restated, modified or supplemented) and (b) Credit Agreement, dated as of December 20, 2019 (as amended, restated, amended and restated, modified or supplemented) (collectively, the ”Refinancing”).

The Credit Agreement, which matures on July 1, 2026, provides the Company with revolving commitments in an aggregate principal amount of up to $750 million, with a letter of credit sub-facility of $40 million and with a swingline loan sub-facility of $25 million. The Credit Agreement also provides the Company with an uncommitted incremental facility in an aggregate principal amount of up to $375 million. The proceeds of the Loans (under and as defined in the Credit Agreement) will be used only to finance the working capital needs, and for general corporate purposes, of the Borrower and its Subsidiaries including, without limitation, to finance working capital needs, to refinance indebtedness (including the Refinancing) and to finance acquisitions and similar investments.

Interest

The Company may elect that the Loans comprising each borrowing bear interest at a rate per annum equal to either a base rate or LIBOR rate, in each case, plus an Applicable Rate based on the Company’s senior unsecured long-term debt rating. The Credit Agreement also contains customary LIBOR replacement language.

Covenants

The Credit Agreement contains certain covenants that, among other things, impose restrictions on the business of the Company and certain Subsidiaries, in each case, with certain exceptions, thresholds or caps that are permitted. The restrictions that these covenants place on the Company include, but are not limited to, limitations on their ability to:

 

   

effectuate a Change of Control (as defined in the Credit Agreement);

 

   

consolidate or merge with or into any other Person;

 

   

sell, transfer, lease or otherwise dispose of all or substantially all of the assets of the Company and its Consolidated Subsidiaries;


   

create liens; and

 

   

permit Consolidated Subsidiaries (as defined in the Credit Agreement) to incur Debt (as defined in the Credit Agreement).
