Section 1—Registrant’s Business and Operations

 

Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

On December 22, 2011, Avery Dennison Corporation, a Delaware corporation (the “Company”), entered into a $675 million Second Amended and Restated Credit Agreement (the “Credit Agreement”), with a syndicate of lenders party thereto, Bank of America, N.A., as administrative agent, Citibank, N.A., as syndication agent, and JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A., as documentation agent. The Credit Agreement amends and restates the Company’s First Amended and Restated Credit Agreement dated as of August 10, 2007.

Under the Credit Agreement, the Company may borrow up to an aggregate of $675 million in revolving loans (the “Loans”). The commitments under the Credit Agreement may be increased by up to $250 million in the aggregate upon the Company’s request at the discretion of the lenders and subject to certain customary requirements. The maturity date is December 22, 2016, however, the Company may request that the commitments be extended for one-year periods under certain circumstances as set forth in the Credit Agreement.

Loans outstanding under the Credit Agreement bear interest, at the Company’s option, at the base rate or the Eurocurrency rate, in each case plus an applicable per annum margin. The applicable per annum margin is determined based on the Company’s debt ratings in accordance with a pricing grid, with the per annum margin for base rate borrowings ranging from 0.00% to 0.650% and the per annum margin for Eurocurrency rate borrowings ranging from 0.875% to 1.650%. The terms “base rate” and “Eurocurrency rate” have meanings customary for financings of this type. Fees payable for the revolving commitments under the Credit Agreement, whether used or unused, are also determined based on the Company’s debt ratings in accordance with a pricing grid, with the per annum percentage ranging from 0.125% to 0.350%.

The Loans may, at the Company’s option, be prepaid in whole or in part without premium or penalty (subject to breakage costs for Eurocurrency rate loans) and the Company may reduce or terminate the commitments of the lenders to make the Loans.

The Credit Agreement contains customary affirmative and negative covenants, including limitations on mergers, asset sales, liens, investments, contingent obligations and subsidiary indebtedness. In addition, the Credit Agreement requires the Company to maintain a maximum leverage ratio (calculated as a ratio of consolidated debt to consolidated EBITDA) of not more than 3.50 to 1.00 and a minimum interest coverage ratio (calculated as a ratio of consolidated earnings before interest and taxes to consolidated interest expense) of not less than 3.00 to 1.00.

The summary of the Credit Agreement contained herein is qualified in its entirety by reference to the terms of the Credit Agreement, a copy of which is filed herewith as Exhibit 10.1 and incorporated herein by reference.
