Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement

Amendment No. 7 to Third Amended and Restated Credit Agreement

On March 10, 2021, Harsco Corporation (the “Company”) entered into Amendment No. 7 to Third Amended and Restated Credit Agreement (“Amendment No. 7”) which amends the Company’s Third Amended and Restated Credit Agreement, dated as of November 2, 2016 (as the same has been amended, supplemented or otherwise modified prior to March 10, 2021, and as further amended by Amendment No. 7, the “Senior Secured Credit Facility”), with Citibank, N.A., as administrative agent and as collateral agent, the lenders party thereto, and the other parties thereto.

Amendment No. 7 amended the Company’s existing $700 million revolving credit facility under the Senior Secured Credit Facility (the “Revolving Credit Facility”; and the loans thereunder, the “Revolving Credit Loans”) to extend the maturity date of the Revolving Credit Facility to March 10, 2026, and to increase certain levels set forth in the total net leverage ratio covenant. The interest rate applicable to the Revolving Credit Loans bears interest at a rate, depending on total net leverage, ranging from 50 to 150 basis points over base rate or 150 to 250 basis points over LIBOR, subject to a zero floor. Under the Revolving Credit Facility, the Company’s total net leverage is capped at 5.75x of consolidated adjusted EBITDA through the end of 2021; the maximum total net leverage ratio is reduced quarterly thereafter, reaching 4.0x for the first quarter in 2023.

In addition, Amendment No. 7 establishes a new term loan facility under the Senior Secured Credit Facility (the “New Term Loan Facility”; the loan thereunder, the “New Term Loan”) in an aggregate principal amount of $500 million. The New Term Loan is established as an additional tranche of term loan under the Senior Secured Credit Facility and, other than certain terms described below and in the Senior Secured Credit Facility, is subject to the same terms as are applicable to the other tranches of loans under the Senior Secured Credit Facility. The New Term Loan bears interest at a rate per annum of 1.25% over base rate, subject to a zero floor, and 2.25% over LIBOR, subject to a 0.50% floor. The New Term Loan is subject to quarterly amortization of principal of 0.25% (beginning on September 30, 2021). The proceeds of the New Term Loan Facility were used (a) to repay in full the outstanding term loan A and term loan B under the Senior Secured Credit Facility, which were due on June 28, 2024 and December 8, 2024, respectively. The New Term Loan matures on March 10, 2028, or earlier, on the date that is 91 days prior to the maturity date of the Company’s 5.75% Senior Notes due 2027 if such Senior Notes are outstanding or have not been refinanced at such time. The New Term Loan is not subject to financial maintenance covenants, including the total net leverage ratio covenant described above.

The foregoing description of Amendment No. 7 is qualified in its entirety by reference to the actual terms of the agreement. A copy of Amendment No. 7 is attached as Exhibit 10.1 hereto, and is incorporated by reference herein.

Certain of the agents and lenders providing funding or other services under the Senior Secured Credit Facility, as well as certain of their affiliates, have, from time to time, provided various financial advisory, commercial and investment banking services to the Company and/or its affiliates for which they have received customary fees and commissions.

Item 2.03 Creation of a Direct Financial Obligation or an Obligation Under an Off-Balance Sheet Arrangement of a Registrant.

The disclosure above under Item 1.01 of this Current Report on Form 8-K is also responsive to Item 2.03 of this Current Report on Form 8-K and is hereby incorporated by reference into this Item 2.03.
