Item 1.01. Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement

The information described below under “Item 2.03. Creation of a Direct Financial Obligation or an Obligation under an Off-Balance Sheet Arrangement of a Registrant” is hereby incorporated by reference into this Item 1.01.

Item 2.03. Creation of a Direct Financial Obligation or an Obligation under an Off-Balance Sheet Arrangement of a Registrant

Revolving Credit Agreement. On October 14, 2016, we entered into an amended and restated revolving credit agreement (the “Revolving Credit Agreement”) for a five-year senior unsecured revolving credit facility in an aggregate principal amount of $4.5 billion with the lenders named in the Revolving Credit Agreement; J.P. Morgan Chase Bank, N.A., Citigroup Global Markets Inc., Credit Suisse Securities (USA) LLC, HSBC Securities (USA) LLC and Merrill Lynch, Pierce, Fenner & Smith Incorporated as joint lead arrangers and joint bookrunners; and JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A. as administrative agent. The Revolving Credit Agreement amended and restated our $4.5 billion five-year revolving credit agreement, dated as of October 11, 2013.

Under the Revolving Credit Agreement, we and certain of our subsidiaries that we may designate may borrow advances up to the aggregate amount of the unused commitments under the revolving facility on or after October 14, 2016 and before the termination of the Revolving Credit Agreement. Under the Revolving Credit Agreement, we guarantee the obligations of any subsidiary borrower. We may request the amount of the revolving facility be increased by up to $500 million in the aggregate with the agreement of the lenders providing the increased commitments. Unless extended, the Revolving Credit Agreement will terminate on October 14, 2021. The Revolving Credit Agreement provides that prior to each of the first two anniversaries of the effective date of the agreement, we may request that the lenders extend their commitments for an additional one-year period. We also have the right, upon certain conditions, to terminate in whole or reduce ratably in part the unused portions of the respective commitments of the lenders. All committed pro rata borrowings under the revolving facility will bear interest at a variable annual rate based on LIBOR or base rate, at our election, plus an applicable margin (as determined pursuant to the Revolving Credit Agreement). The applicable margin will be determined by reference to the rating of our long-term senior unsecured debt.

The Revolving Credit Agreement requires us to maintain a minimum shareholders’ equity of not less than $24.6 billion. The Revolving Credit Agreement’s definition of minimum shareholder equity excludes accumulated other comprehensive income or losses, the cumulative effects of any changes in accounting principles, and any income or losses recognized in connection with the ongoing application of any “mark-to-market” accounting adopted in respect of pension and other retirement plans. The Revolving Credit Agreement also contains customary representations, covenants and events of default.

We intend to use the Revolving Credit Agreement for general corporate purposes, including for working capital purposes, and to support our commercial paper issuances. Some of the lenders under the Revolving Credit Agreement and their affiliates have various relationships with us and our subsidiaries involving the provision of financial services, including cash management, investment banking and trust services. In addition, we and certain of our subsidiaries have entered into foreign exchange and other derivatives arrangements with certain of the lenders and their affiliates.

This description of the Revolving Credit Agreement is qualified in its entirety by reference to the complete terms and conditions of the Revolving Credit Agreement, which we will file with our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2016.


Term Loan Agreement. On October 14, 2016 (the “Effective Date”), Mondelez International Holdings Netherlands B.V. (“MIHNBV”), our wholly-owned Dutch subsidiary, entered into a term loan agreement (the “Term Loan Agreement”) pursuant to which MIHNBV may incur up to $750 million of term loans with a three-year term and $750 million of term loans with a five-year term with the lenders named in the Term Loan Agreement; J.P. Morgan Chase Bank, N.A., The Bank of Tokyo-Mitsubishi UFJ, Ltd., Credit Suisse Securities (USA) LLC, Goldman Sachs Bank USA, HSBC Securities (USA) LLC, Merrill Lynch, Pierce, Fenner & Smith Incorporated and Mizuho Bank, Ltd. as joint lead arrangers and joint bookrunners; and JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A. as administrative agent. We have executed the Term Loan Agreement as a guarantor of MIHNBV’s obligations thereunder.

Under the Agreement, MIHNBV may, on a single funding date within sixty days after the Effective Date, draw up to $750 million of term loans with a maturity three years after the funding date of such loans and may, on a single funding date within sixty days of the Effective Date, draw up to $750 million of term loans with a maturity five years after the funding date of such loans. Amounts borrowed and repaid under the Term Loan Agreement may not be reborrowed. We have the right, upon certain conditions, to prepay in whole or in part the term loans. All term loans under the term loan facility will bear interest at a variable annual rate based on LIBOR or base rate, at our election, plus an applicable margin (as determined pursuant to the Term Loan Agreement). The applicable margin will be determined by reference to the rating of our long-term senior unsecured debt.

The Term Loan Agreement requires us to maintain a minimum shareholders’ equity of not less than $24.6 billion. The Term Loan Agreement’s definition of minimum shareholder equity excludes accumulated other comprehensive income or losses, the cumulative effects of any changes in accounting principles, and any income or losses recognized in connection with the ongoing application of any “mark-to-market” accounting adopted in respect of pension and other retirement plans. The Term Loan Agreement also contains customary representations, covenants and events of default.

We intend to use the proceeds of term loans borrowed under the Term Loan Agreement for general corporate purposes, including for dividends, capital reduction, intercompany loans, and/or for the repayment of indebtedness. Some of the lenders under the Term Loan Agreement and their affiliates have various relationships with us and our subsidiaries involving the provision of financial services, including cash management, investment banking and trust services. In addition, we and certain of our subsidiaries have entered into foreign exchange and other derivatives arrangements with certain of the lenders and their affiliates.

This description of the Term Loan Agreement is qualified in its entirety by reference to the complete terms and conditions of the Term Loan Agreement, which we will file with our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2016.
