Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

 

On February 3, 2020 (the “Closing Date”), iHeartCommunications, Inc. (“iHeartCommunications”), an indirect, wholly-owned subsidiary of iHeartMedia, Inc., iHeartMedia Capital I, LLC, the other subsidiary guarantors party thereto, Bank of America, N.A. as new administrative agent and new term lender, and Citibank, N.A. as existing administrative agent under that certain Credit Agreement, dated as of May 1, 2019 (as amended, the “Credit Agreement” and the term loan facility thereunder, the “Term Loan Facility”), entered into Amendment No. 1 to the Credit Agreement (“Amendment No. 1”). Amendment No. 1 provides for $2,101 million of replacement term loan commitments, which were funded on the Closing Date and used to refinance the existing term loans under the Credit Agreement and pay related fees and expenses. Amendment No. 1 also (i) reduces the interest rate on the replacement term loans to LIBOR plus a margin of 3.00% (from LIBOR plus a margin of 4.00%), or the Base Rate (as defined in the Credit Agreement) plus a margin of 2.00% (from Base Rate plus a margin of 3.00%), (ii) replaces Citibank, N.A. with Bank of America, N.A. as the administrative agent and collateral agent, and (iii) modifies certain covenants contained in the Credit Agreement.

 

The description of Amendment No. 1 contained in this Current Report on Form 8-K is qualified in its entirety by reference to the complete text of Amendment No. 1, a copy of which is filed as Exhibit 10.1 hereto, and is incorporated herein by reference.

 

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

 

The information set forth in Item 1.01 above is incorporated by reference into this Item 2.03.

 

Item 8.01. Other Events.

 

In connection with the entry into Amendment No. 1, iHeartCommunications also prepaid at par $150.0 million of borrowings outstanding under the Term Loan Facility with cash on hand. The prepayment and the 100 basis points reduction in interest rate under the Term Loan Facility described above, combined with the refinancing transactions iHeartCommunications completed in August and November 2019, are expected to result in an approximately $40 million reduction in annualized cash interest payments compared to the expected annualized cash interest payments indicated by the terms of the $5.8 billion of indebtedness issued upon iHeartCommunications’ emergence from Chapter 11 bankruptcy on May 1, 2019.
