Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement
On August 8, 2007, Kraft Foods Inc. (the “Company” or “Kraft”) entered into a Terms Agreement (the “Terms Agreement”) with Citigroup Global Markets Inc., Deutsche Bank Securities Inc., Goldman, Sachs & Co. and J.P. Morgan Securities Inc., as representatives of the several underwriters named therein (the “Underwriters”), pursuant to which the Company agreed to issue and sell to the Underwriters $250,000,000 aggregate principal amount of its 5.625% Notes due in 2010 (the “2010 Notes”), $750,000,000 aggregate principal amount of its 6.000% Notes due in 2013 (the “2013 Notes”), $1,500,000,000 aggregate principal amount of its 6.500% Notes due in 2017 (the “2017 Notes”), $750,000,000 aggregate principal amount of its 7.000% Notes due in 2037 (the “2037 Notes”) and $250,000,000 aggregate principal amount of its Floating Rate Notes due in 2010 (the “Floating Rate Notes” and collectively with the 2010 Notes, the 2013 Notes, the 2017 Notes and the 2037 Notes, the “Notes”). The provisions of an Amended and Restated Underwriting Agreement dated as of August 8, 2007 (the “Underwriting Agreement”) are incorporated by reference in the Terms Agreement. Copies of the Underwriting Agreement and the Terms Agreement are filed as Exhibits 1.1 and 1.2 to this report, respectively.
The Notes will be issued pursuant to an Indenture (the “Indenture”) dated as of October 17, 2001, by and between the Company and The Bank of New York (as successor trustee to The Chase Manhattan Bank), as trustee, as supplemented by an Officer’s Certificate, dated August 8, 2007 (the “Officer’s Certificate”).
The Company has filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “Commission”) a Prospectus dated May 7, 2004 and a Prospectus Supplement (the “Prospectus Supplement”) dated August 8, 2007 (Registration No. 333-113620) in connection with the public offering of the Notes.
The Notes are subject to certain customary covenants, including limitations on the Company’s ability, with significant exceptions, to incur debt secured by liens and engage in sale/leaseback transactions. In addition, upon the occurrence of both (i) a change of control of the Company and (ii) a downgrade of the Notes below an investment grade rating by each of Moody’s Investors Service, Inc., Standard & Poor’s Ratings Services and Fitch Ratings within a specified period, the Company will be required to make an offer to purchase the Notes of each series at a price equal to 101% of the aggregate principal amount of such series, plus accrued and unpaid interest to the date of repurchase as and to the extent set forth in the Prospectus Supplement. The Company may redeem all, but not part, of the Notes of each series upon the occurrence of specified tax events as described in the Prospectus Supplement.
Interest on the 2010 Notes, 2013 Notes, 2017 Notes and the 2037 Notes is payable semiannually, in arrears on February 11 and August 11, commencing February 11, 2008, to holders of record on the preceding January 27 or July 27, as the case may be. Interest on the 2010 Notes, the 2013 Notes, the 2017 Notes and the 2037 Notes will be computed on the basis of a 360-day year consisting of twelve 30-day months.
Interest on the Floating Rate Notes is payable quarterly on February 11, May 11, August 11 and November 11 of each year, commencing on November 13, 2007. The Floating Rate Notes will bear interest at a rate per annum of LIBOR (determined as set forth in the Prospectus Supplement) plus 50 basis points and will be reset quarterly on February 11, May 11, August 11 and November 11. Interest on the Floating Rate Notes will be computed and paid on the basis of a 360-day year and the actual number of days in each interest payment period.
The 2010 Notes will mature on August 11, 2010, the 2013 Notes on February 11, 2013, the 2017 Notes on August 11, 2017, the 2037 Notes on August 11, 2037 and the Floating Rate Notes on August 11, 2010.
The Notes will be the Company’s senior unsecured obligations and will rank equally in right of payment with all of the Company’s existing and future senior unsecured indebtedness.
