Senior Unsecured Revolving Credit Facility

Credit Agreement

The Company’s subsidiary, Seagate HDD Cayman, has a credit agreement, which was most recently amended on August 18, 2022 (the “Credit Agreement”).

Prior to the August 18, 2022 amendment, the Credit Agreement provided a term loan facility in an aggregate principal amount of $1.2 billion that was extended in two tranches of $600 million each for Term Loans A1 and A2 and a $1.75 billion senior unsecured revolving credit facility (“Revolving Credit Facility”). Term Loans A1 and A2 were drawn in full on October 14, 2021. 

On August 18, 2022, Seagate Technology Holdings plc and Seagate HDD Cayman (the “Borrower”) entered into an amendment to the Credit Agreement (the “Sixth Amendment”), which provides for a new term loan facility in the aggregate principal amount of $600 million (“Term Loan A3”). Term Loan A3 was borrowed in full at the closing of the Sixth Amendment. Term Loan A3 bears interest at a rate of SOFR plus a variable margin of 1.25% to 2.5%, in each case with such margin being determined based on the corporate credit rating of the Borrower or one of its parent entities. Term Loan A3 is repayable in quarterly installments beginning on December 31, 2022 and is scheduled to mature on July 30, 2027. 

The Sixth Amendment to the Credit Agreement also replaced the LIBOR interest rates plus variable margin for the Term Loans A1 and A2 with the SOFR interest rates plus a variable margin that will be determined based on the corporate credit rating of the Borrower or one of its parent entities. The Sixth Amendment also permits the Borrower to increase the revolving loan commitments or obtain new term loans of up to $100 million in aggregate, subject to the satisfaction of certain terms and conditions.

STX and certain of its material subsidiaries, including STUC, fully and unconditionally guarantee both the Revolving Credit Facility and the Term Loans A1, A2 and A3 (the “Term Loans”). 

The Credit Agreement includes three financial covenants: (1) interest coverage ratio, (2) total leverage ratio and (3) a minimum liquidity amount. The Company was in compliance with the covenants as of September 30, 2022. 

As of September 30, 2022, no borrowings (including swingline loans) were outstanding and no commitments were utilized for letters of credit issued under the Revolving Credit Facility.

  • All 2023 and 2025 bonds are callable at a "make-whole" redemption price at anytime, which would be equal to the greater of (1) 100% of the principal amount of the notes to be redeemed, or (2) the sum of the present values of the remaining scheduled payments of principal and interest on the Notes being redeemed, discounted to the redemption date on a semi-annual basis at a rate equal to the sum of the applicable comparable Treasury rate plus 50 basis points. Accrued and unpaid interest, if any, will be paid to, but excluding, the redemption date.

    All July 2029 bonds are callable at a “make-whole” redemption price at any time on or before January 15, 2024, which would be equal to (1) 100% of the principal amount of the Notes redeemed, plus (2) the greater of (a) 1.0% of the principal amount of such Notes and (b) the excess, if any, of (i) the present value at such redemption date of (x) the applicable redemption price of such Notes that would apply if such Notes were redeemed on January 15, 2024, plus (y) all remaining scheduled payments of interest due on such Notes to and including January 15, 2024, computed using a discount rate equal to the Treasury Rate as of such redemption date plus 50 basis points; over (ii) the sum of accrued and unpaid interest, if any, to but excluding the redemption date, plus the principal amount of such Notes, plus (3) accrued and unpaid interest, if any, to but excluding the redemption date. At any time on or after January 15, 2024, the July 2029 bonds are callable at the prices specified in the Indenture, plus accrued and unpaid interest thereon, if any, to, but excluding, the redemption date. In addition, prior to January 15, 2024, up to 40% of the July 2029 bonds are redeemable with the net cash proceeds from one or more equity offerings at a redemption price of 103.125%, plus accrued and unpaid interest to, but excluding, the redemption date.

    All July 2031 bonds are callable at a “make-whole” redemption price at any time before January 15, 2026, which would be equal to (1) 100% of the principal amount of the Notes redeemed, plus (2) the greater of (a) 1.0% of the principal amount of such Notes and (b) the excess, if any, of (i) the present value at such redemption date of (x) the applicable redemption price of such Notes that would apply if such Notes were redeemed on January 15, 2026, plus (y) all remaining scheduled payments of interest due on such Notes to and including January 15, 2026, computed using a discount rate equal to the Treasury Rate (as defined in the Indenture) as of such redemption date plus 50 basis points; over (ii) the sum of accrued and unpaid interest, if any, to but excluding the redemption date, plus the principal amount of such Notes, plus (3) accrued and unpaid interest, if any, to but excluding the redemption date. At any time on or after January 15, 2026, the July 2031 bonds are callable at the prices specified in the Indenture, plus accrued and unpaid interest thereon, if any, to, but excluding, the redemption date.

    All other bonds are callable at a “make-whole” redemption price dependent upon the date of redemption. At any time on or after the relevant par call date (as set forth in the relevant indenture), the redemption price would equal 100% of the principal amount of the Notes being redeemed, plus accrued and unpaid interest thereon, if any, to, but excluding, the redemption date. At any time before the relevant par call date, the redemption price would equal (1) 100% of the principal amount of the Notes being redeemed, plus (2) the excess, if any, of (x) the sum of the present values of the remaining scheduled payments of principal and interest on the Notes being redeemed, discounted to the redemption date on a semi-annual basis (assuming a 360-day year of twelve 30-day months) at a rate equal to the sum of the Treasury Rate plus 50 basis points (45 basis points in the case of the 2024 Notes and 40 basis points in the case of the 2027 Notes), minus accrued and unpaid interest, if any, on the Notes being redeemed to, but excluding, the redemption date over (y) the principal amount of the Notes being redeemed, plus (3) accrued and unpaid interest, if any, on the Notes being redeemed to, but excluding, the redemption date.
