Booz Allen Hamilton Inc. Closes Third Amendment to Credit Agreement
MCLEAN, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
Booz Allen Hamilton Holding Corporation (NYSE: BAH) today announced that
on July 13, 2016, its wholly owned subsidiary, Booz Allen Hamilton Inc.
(the "Company") successfully closed the third amendment to its credit
agreement dated as of July 31, 2012. With no increase in net borrowing
and a reduction in overall interest costs, the amendment extended the
maturity of all of the outstanding $1,583 million of the Company's
borrowings under the credit agreement. Under the credit agreement, as
amended, the Company's Revolving Credit Facility and Term Loan A (TLA)
matures on June 30, 2021 and Term Loan B (TLB) matures on June 30, 2023.
In connection with the amendment, an additional $441 million of the
Company's TLA was borrowed with the proceeds used to reduce a portion of
TLB. The credit agreement, as amended, consists of a $500 million
Revolving Credit Facility, $1,183 million TLA and $400 million TLB.
Following the amendment, the interest rate for the outstanding
indebtedness of approximately $1,183 million under TLA is LIBOR + 2.00%
(subject to adjustment based on the existing leveraged based pricing
grid) and the interest rate for the outstanding indebtedness of $400
million under TLB is LIBOR + 2.75% with no LIBOR floor.
The amendment also increased the Company's ability to incur additional
secured debt under incremental credit facilities by $300 million to $400
million. The Company also amended its financial maintenance covenants by
increasing the maximum consolidated net total leverage ratio test to (i)
4.50:1.00 through December 31, 2016 (from 4.00:1.00) and (ii) 4.00:1.00
thereafter. Mandatory prepayments of TLA are reduced to 5.00% per annum
and remain at 1.00% per annum for TLB. Certain other covenants under the
credit agreement were amended to provide for greater operational and
financial flexibility to the Company.
