Item 1.01. Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

On May 4, 2007, Bucyrus International, Inc. (“Bucyrus”) entered into new $1.225 billion credit facilities to finance the acquisition of DBT GmbH (“DBT”) and refinance certain existing indebtedness at both Bucyrus and DBT. The credit facilities include a secured revolving credit facility of $400.0 million which matures on May 4, 2012 and an $825.0 million term loan facility with a maturity of May 4, 2014. In addition, the credit facilities will also provide Bucyrus with the ability to increase the borrowing capacity by entering into a €50 million unsecured German revolving facility. Bucyrus is the borrower under both the secured revolving credit facility and the term loan facility. The credit facilities replaced Bucyrus’ existing $200.0 million revolving credit facility. The secured revolving facility includes a sub-limit for multicurrency revolving borrowings of up to $125.0 million and swing-line borrowings of up to $25.0 million. The entire secured revolving credit facility may be used for letters of credit. As of May 4, 2007, Bucyrus borrowed $23.7 million under its new revolving credit facility to partially fund the acquisition of DBT and refinance certain of Bucyrus’ existing indebtedness without taking into account any closing adjustments in connection with the acquisition of DBT. Immediately after the financing and closing of the acquisition of DBT, Bucyrus expects to have approximately $201.3 million available for borrowings under its revolving credit facility (taking into account $175.0 million of issued letters of credit).

Borrowings under the secured revolving credit facility bear interest, payable no less frequently than quarterly, at (a) LIBOR plus 1.75%, for U.S. dollar-denominated LIBOR loans, subject to positive or negative adjustment based on final syndication of the facilities, (b) a base rate determined by reference to the greater of the U.S. prime lending rate and the federal funds rate plus 0.50%, in each case plus 0.75%, for U.S. dollar-denominated base rate loans and (c) EURIBOR plus 1.75% for Euro-denominated loans. Borrowings under the term loan facility bear interest, payable no less frequently than quarterly, at (1) LIBOR plus 1.75%, for U.S. dollar-denominated LIBOR loans, (2) the base rate plus 0.75%, for U.S. dollar-denominated base rate loans and (3) EURIBOR plus 1.75% for Euro-denominated loans under the secured revolving credit facility, subject to change based on Bucyrus’ total leverage ratio. Under the revolving credit facility, Bucyrus has agreed to pay a commitment fee based on the unused portion of such facilities, payable quarterly, at rates ranging from 0.25% to 0.50% depending on Bucyrus’ total leverage ratio, and when applicable, customary letter of credit fees.

Bucyrus’ obligations under the credit facilities are guaranteed, on a joint and several basis, by certain of its domestic subsidiaries. In addition, Bucyrus’ obligations under the secured revolving credit facility and the term loan facility are secured by a security interest in substantially all of the tangible and intangible domestic assets of Bucyrus and its domestic subsidiaries (subject to certain exceptions), as well as 100% of the outstanding capital stock of its domestic subsidiaries and 65% of the voting stock and 100% of the non-voting stock of certain of its first-tier foreign subsidiaries.

The credit facilities contain operating and financial covenants that, among other things, could limit Bucyrus’ ability to obtain additional sources of capital. The financial covenant requires that Bucyrus maintain a total leverage ratio, calculated on a trailing four-quarter basis, of not more than 4.00 to 1.00 through the end of the fiscal quarter ending December 31, 2008 and not more than 3.50 to 1.00 for each measurement period thereafter. The total leverage ratio is calculated as the ratio of consolidated indebtedness (which is net of cash) to consolidated operating profit (which excludes, among other things, certain non-cash charges, as discussed more fully in the credit agreement).

Bucyrus’ credit facilities require it to prepay outstanding loans with 100% of the net proceeds of the incurrence of certain debt and the making of certain asset sales and 50% (subject to step-downs based on our total leverage ratio) of its excess cash flow.

The description of the credit facilities set forth above is qualified by reference to the Credit Agreement filed herewith as Exhibit 4.1 and incorporated herein by reference.

Lehman Brothers, Inc. acted as financial advisor to Bucyrus in connection with Bucyrus’ acquisition of DBT and will receive customary fees and expense reimbursement for such services. Lehman Brothers, Inc. is also acting as sole book-running manager, and J.P. Morgan Securities Inc. is acting as lead manager, for Bucyrus’ offering of its common stock pursuant to an underwritten public offering expected to raise approximately $300.0 million in gross proceeds, and each will receive customary fees and expense reimbursement for such services.

 

Item 2.01. Completion of Acquisition or Disposition of Assets.

On May 4, 2007, Bucyrus, through its acquisition subsidiary DBT Holdings GmbH, acquired DBT from RAG Coal International AG. Bucyrus paid RAG Coal $710 million in cash, subject to certain closing adjustments and issued 471,476 shares of Bucyrus common stock with a market value of $21 million at the time of announcement of the acquisition of DBT. Bucyrus owns 100% of the voting shares of DBT Holdings, representing 49.9% of its registered share capital, and HMS Hamburg Trust GmbH, a private German special purpose, financial intermediary, owns 100% of the non-voting shares of DBT Holdings, representing 50.1% of its registered share capital. Bucyrus is entitled to 100% of the dividends and cash flow of DBT. Pursuant to a Forward Purchase Agreement with the Hamburg Trust, Bucyrus will acquire all of the shares of DBT Holdings held by the Hamburg Trust by no later than December 31, 2009 for €8.0 million, €4.0 million of which will be paid by RAG Coal.

Based on the provisions of FASB Interpretation 46(R), DBT constitutes a variable interest entity. As Bucyrus is the only party with the risks and rewards of ownership, Bucyrus is the primary beneficiary of this variable interest entity and, therefore, Bucyrus will consolidate DBT in its financial statements.
