Senior Unsecured Revolving Credit Facility

Credit Agreement

On February 20, 2019, the Company and its subsidiary Seagate HDD Cayman entered into a new credit agreement (the “Credit Agreement”), which was most recently amended on September 16, 2019. The Credit Agreement provides with a term loan facility in an aggregate principal amount of $500 million (“Term Loan”) and, subject to compliance with certain requirements under the Company’s control, an up to $1.5 billion senior unsecured revolving credit facility (“Revolving Credit Facility”). The Revolving Credit Facility has a final maturity of February 20, 2024 and the Term Loan has a final maturity date of September 16, 2025. The loans made under the Revolving Credit Facility and the Term Loan will bear interest at a rate of the London Interbank Offered Rate (“LIBOR”) plus a variable margin for each facility 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 both the Revolving Credit Facility and the Term Loan. The Revolving Credit Facility also allows such facility to increase 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 Revolving Credit Facility is available for the issuance of letters of credit, and an aggregate amount of up to $50 million of such facility is also available for swing line loans.

On September 17, 2019, Seagate HDD Cayman borrowed the $500 million principal amount under the Term Loan and the proceeds were used to repurchase a portion of its outstanding senior notes. The Term Loan is repayable in quarterly installments of 1.25% of the original principal amount beginning on December 31, 2020, with the remaining balance payable upon maturity.

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 April 3, 2020 and expects to be in compliance for the next 12 months.

As of April 3, 2020, no borrowings were drawn and no letters of credit or swing line loans had been utilized under the 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.
