Item 1.01 Entry into Material Definitive Agreement.
On November 3, 2021, GameStop Corp. (the “Company”) entered into a Credit Agreement by and among the Company, certain subsidiaries of the Company (the “Borrowers”), certain other subsidiaries of the Company (the “Guarantors”), the other borrowers and guarantors from time to time party thereto, the lenders and issuers from time to time party thereto (the “Lenders”), Wells Fargo Bank, National Association, as Administrative Agent, Collateral Agent and Australian Security Trustee (the “Agent”), Wells Fargo Bank, National Association, JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A., Regions Bank, and Fifth Third Bank, National Association, as Co-Syndication Agents, Wells Fargo Bank, National Association, BofA Securities Inc., JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A., Regions Bank, and Fifth Third Bank, National Association, as Joint Lead Arrangers and Joint Bookrunners (the “Credit Agreement”). The Credit Agreement provides for an asset-based secured revolving credit facility with a borrowing capacity of $500 million and a maturity date of November 3, 2026, and includes a $50 million swing loan revolving sub-facility, a $50 million Canadian revolving sub-facility, and a $250 million letter of credit sublimit. The Credit Agreement also includes the ability to add a $25 million Australian revolving sub-facility, subject to the completion of certain conditions.
The Credit Agreement replaces the Second Amended and Restated Credit Agreement, dated as of March 25, 2014, by and among the Company, certain subsidiaries of the Company, Bank of America, N.A. and the other lending institutions listed therein, Bank of America, N.A., as Issuing Bank, Bank of America, N.A., as Agent, JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A., as Syndication Agent, Wells Fargo Bank, National Association, U.S. Bank National Association and Regions Bank as Co-Documentation Agents and JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A. and Merrill Lynch, Pierce, Fenner & Smith Incorporated, as Joint Lead Arrangers and Joint Bookrunners (as amended, the “Prior Facility”). The Prior Facility was due to expire on November 20, 2022.
Borrowings under the Credit Agreement accrue interest at the election of the Company at an adjusted LIBOR rate plus an applicable margin (ranging from 1.25% to 1.50%) or an adjusted prime rate plus an applicable margin (ranging from 0.25% to 0.50%). The applicable margin is determined quarterly as a function of the Company’s average historical excess availability under the facility and is set at 0.50% for prime rate loans and 1.50% for LIBOR rate loans until the first day of the calendar quarter of the Company commencing on April 1, 2022. In addition, the Company is required to pay a commitment fee of 0.25% for any unused portion of the total commitment under the Credit Agreement. The obligations of the Borrowers under the Credit Agreement are guaranteed by the Company and certain of its subsidiaries, subject to exceptions that, among other things, limit the ability of the Company’s foreign subsidiaries to guarantee obligations owing by the Company and its domestic subsidiaries. The obligations of the Company and each subsidiary of the Company that is a Borrower and/or a Guarantor under the Credit Agreement are secured by substantially all of the assets of the Company and each such subsidiary, subject to customary exceptions.
The Credit Agreement places certain restrictions on the Company and its subsidiaries, including, but not limited to, limitations on additional liens, investments, acquisitions, loans, guarantees, the incurrence of additional indebtedness, certain fundamental changes, certain dispositions, certain dividends and distributions, and certain related party transactions. The Credit Agreement also provides for customary events of default, including, but not limited to, payment defaults, breaches of covenants and certain events of bankruptcy, insolvency and reorganization. In addition, the Credit Agreement provides for a fixed charge coverage ratio covenant if availability under the Credit Agreement is below a certain amount.
The foregoing description of the Credit Agreement does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Credit Agreement, which is filed as Exhibit 10.1 hereto, and is incorporated herein by reference.
Item 1.02 Termination of a Material Definitive Agreement.
