ITEM 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.
On November 3, 2011, Affiliated Managers Group, Inc. (the Company) entered into a senior unsecured credit facility totaling $1.0 billion (the Credit Facility), consisting of a $750 million revolving facility (the Revolver), which amends and restates the Companys previous senior unsecured revolving credit facility dated January 12, 2011 and amended on July 5, 2011 (the Previous Facility), and a new $250 million term loan facility (the Term Loan), each with Bank of America, N.A., as administrative agent, and the several lenders from time to time party thereto. The Term Loan and $720 million of the Revolver have a five-year maturity (maturing November 3, 2016); the remaining $30 million of the Revolver matures January 12, 2015. Subject to certain conditions, the Company may increase the Revolver and the Term Loan by up to $150 million and $250 million, respectively.
Beginning on the last business day of December 2014, the Company is required to make scheduled quarterly payments under the Term Loan, each equal to 6.25% of the original principal amount of the Term Loan made on the closing date plus the aggregate amount of incremental term loans made thereafter.
The Credit Facility contains financial covenants with respect to leverage and interest coverage, as well as customary affirmative and negative covenants, including limitations on priority indebtedness, liens, cash dividends, asset dispositions, and fundamental corporate changes, and certain customary events of default, in each case, similar to those contained in the Previous Facility.
This description is a summary and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the credit agreements for the Revolver and the Term Loan, which are attached to this Current Report on Form 8-K as Exhibit 10.1 and Exhibit 10.2, respectively.
