On November 4, 2016, EVERTEC Group, LLC (EVERTEC, LLC or the Borrower), the main operating subsidiary of EVERTEC, Inc. (EVERTEC or the Company), together with certain other direct and indirect subsidiaries of the Company, entered into a third amendment (the Amendment) to the Credit Agreement, dated as of April 17, 2013 (as amended and restated pursuant to the Amendment, the Credit Agreement), by and among EVERTEC, LLC, EVERTEC INTERMEDIATE HOLDINGS, LLC, the lenders from time to time party thereto and JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A. (the Agent), as administrative agent and collateral agent, swingline lender and L/C issuer.
Among other things, the Amendment to the Credit Agreement extends the maturity of (a) approximately $219 million of the Borrowers existing approximately $250 million of term loan A facility to January 17, 2020 and (b) $65 million of the Borrowers existing $100 million of revolving credit facility to January 17, 2020. The remaining approximately $30 million of term loan A facility and the $35 million of revolving credit facility that were not extended will remain in place and mature as originally scheduled on April 17, 2018.
As a result of the Amendment, the Credit Agreement now provides for an approximately $30 million term loan A facility due April 17, 2018 (the 2018 Term A Loan), an approximately $219 million term loan A facility due January 17, 2020 (the 2020 Term A Loan), $35 million revolving credit facility due April 17, 2018 (the 2018 Revolving Facility Loan), a $65 million revolving credit facility due January 17, 2020 (the 2020 Revolving Facility Loan and, together with the 2018 Revolving Facility Loan, the Revolving Facility Loan). The term loan B facility, which had approximately $387 million in borrowings outstanding as of September 30, 2016, will remain in place and mature as originally scheduled on April 17, 2020 (the Term B Loan).
The material terms of the Amendment and the Credit Agreement are as follows:

The 2018 Term A Loan amortizes on a basis of 1.875% during each of the next three quarters including from the quarter ending December 31, 2016 and 2.50% during each of the final three quarters, with the balance payable on the final maturity date.
The 2020 Term A Loan amortizes on a basis of 1.50% during each of the first six quarters starting from the quarter ending December 31, 2016, 1.875% during each of the four subsequent quarters and 2.50% during each of the final three quarters, with the balance payable on the final maturity date.
The Term B Loan provides for quarterly amortization payments totaling 1.00% per annum of the original principal amount of the Term B Loan of $400 million, with the balance payable on the final maturity date.
Voluntary Prepayments and Reduction and Termination of Commitments
The terms of the senior secured credit facilities allow the Borrower to prepay loans and permanently reduce the loan commitments under the senior secured credit facilities at any time, subject to the payment of customary LIBOR breakage costs.
The interest rates with respect to loans to the Borrower under the Credit Agreement are based on, at the Borrowers option, (a) with respect to any 2018 Term A Loan, adjusted LIBOR plus an interest margin of 2.50% or the greatest of the (i) Agents prime rate in effect, (ii) federal funds effective rate from time to time plus 0.50% and (iii) LIBOR for a one month interest period on such day plus 1.00% (ABR) plus an interest margin of 1.50%, (b) with respect to any 2020 Term A Loan, adjusted LIBOR plus an interest margin of 2.50% or ABR plus an interest margin of 1.50%, and (c) with respect to any Revolving Facility Loan, adjusted LIBOR plus an interest margin of 2.50% or ABR plus an interest margin of 1.50%. The interest rate margins for the Term B Loan remain based on, at the Borrowers option, adjusted LIBOR (subject to a minimum rate of 0.75%) plus an interest margin of 2.75% or ABR plus an interest margin of 1.75%. The interest margins for the 2018 Term A Loan and the Term B Loan under the Credit Agreement continue to be subject to reduction based on achievement of specified first lien secured leverage ratios.
