Senior Unsecured Revolving Credit Facility

Senior Unsecured Revolving Credit Facility

On February 20, 2019, the Company terminated its senior unsecured revolving credit facility scheduled to expire on January 15, 2020, under which the Company was able to draw up to $700 million. Upon termination, the Company and its subsidiary Seagate HDD Cayman entered into a new credit agreement (the “2019 Revolving Credit Facility”) which provided the Company with a $1.3 billion senior unsecured revolving credit facility. The term of the 2019 Revolving Credit Facility is through February 20, 2024. The loans made under the 2019 Revolving Credit Facility will bear interest at a rate of LIBOR plus a variable margin that will be determined based on the corporate credit rating of the Company. The Company and certain other material subsidiaries of the Company fully and unconditionally guarantee the revolving credit facility. On May 28, 2019, the Company increased the 2019 Revolving Credit Facility from $1.3 billion to $1.5 billion primarily through the addition of two lenders under the facility. The 2019 Revolving Credit Facility also allows the Company to increase the facility by an additional $100 million, provided that (i) there has been, and will be after giving effect to such increase, no default, (ii) the increase is at least $25 million, and (iii) the existing commitments under the facility receive 0.50% most favored nation protection. An aggregate amount of up to $75 million of the facility is available for the issuance of letters of credit, and an aggregate amount of up to $50 million of the facility is also available for swing line loans.

The 2019 Revolving Credit Facility 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 June 28, 2019 and expects to be in compliance for the next 12 months.

As of October 4, 2019, no borrowings were drawn and no letters of credit or swing line loans had been utilized under the 2019 Revolving Credit Facility.

  • All 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 (40 basis points in the case of the 2027 Notes). Accrued and unpaid interest, if any, will be paid to, but excluding, the redemption date.
  • Minor calculation variances are due to rounding.
