Amendment to Credit Facilities
As previously disclosed, on April 29, 2008, Activision, acting on behalf of the Company, entered into a senior unsecured credit agreement with Vivendi, borrowings under which could not be effected until the closing of the Transactions. The credit agreement provides the Company with (a) a term loan credit facility in an aggregate amount of up to $400.0 million to be applied to fund that portion of the post-closing tender offer consideration, if any, in excess of $3.628 billion, (b) a term loan credit facility (the Tranche B Facility) in an aggregate amount of up to $150.0 million to be applied to repay certain indebtedness of Vivendi Games, and (c) a revolving credit facility in an aggregate amount at any time outstanding of up to $475.0 million to be used after the closing of the Transactions for general corporate purposes.
In connection with the closing of the Transactions, the Company and Vivendi entered into an amendment to the credit agreement, which, among other things, modifies the permitted uses for the Tranche B Facility. Pursuant to the amendment, the Company may draw on the Tranche B facility up to the lesser of (a) the principal amount of the Vivendi Games indebtedness and (b) the aggregate amount needed to pay for tendered shares after the use of all unrestricted cash on hand as part of the post-closing tender offer to be launched by the Company.
