TABLE OF CONTENTS
International Rectifier Corporation (the Company) previously reported entering into a certain Credit Agreement (the Revolver Agreement), dated as of November 6, 2006, among the Company, certain lenders and JPMorgan Chase Bank, National Association (JPMorgan), as Administrative Agent (such lenders and JPMorgan, together, the Revolver Banks), providing for, among other things, a revolving credit facility with total commitments in the principal amount of $150,000,000. On May 4, 2007, the Company and the Revolver Banks entered into an Amendment No. 1 to the Revolver Agreement (Revolver Amendment), providing for the Revolver Banks agreement that, in light of the ongoing previously disclosed investigation, conducted at the request of the Audit Committee of its Board of Directors by independent investigators hired by outside legal counsel, the Company will not be deemed in default in respect of certain representations, warranties and reporting requirements during a period ending not later than June 27, 2007 (Amendment Period). During such period, the Revolving Lenders will be entitled to assert that lending conditions under the Revolver Agreement have not been satisfied in respect of credit extensions with certain exceptions. A copy of such Revolver Amendment is attached as Exhibit 99.1 hereto.
Additionally, the Company previously reported that it had entered into a certain Continuing Guaranty, dated June 27, 2006 (Guaranty), in favor of Bank of America, N.A. (Bank of America), to guarantee the payment and performance of obligations by International Rectifier Southeast Asia Pte. Ltd., a subsidiary of the Company (IR Singapore), in connection with a Credit Agreement dated June 27, 2006 (the Credit Agreement), between IR Singapore and Bank of America as administrative agent and sole initial lender. The Company and the current lenders under the Credit Agreement entered into a certain Amendment No. 1 to the Guaranty (Guaranty Amendment), dated May 4, 2007, which provides that the Company will not be deemed in default in respect of the representations, warranties and reporting requirements which are incorporated by reference in the Guaranty from the Revolver Agreement during the Amendment Period. A copy of such Guaranty Amendment is attached as Exhibit 99.2 hereto.
At May 4, 2007, the Company had no borrowings and approximately $4.3 million in letters of credit outstanding under the Revolver Agreement. Additionally, at May 4, 2007, approximately $55 million was outstanding under the Credit Agreement. The Company believes it appropriate to have credit facilities available to meet working capital and other needs that may arise although it currently does not anticipate accessing those facilities over the near term other than within the limits set out in Revolver Amendment.
The foregoing descriptions are not complete and are qualified in their entirety by reference to the Revolver Amendment and the Guaranty Amendment which are filed as Exhibits 99.1 and 99.2 hereto and are incorporated herein by this reference.
