On December 27, 2016, Las Vegas Sands, LLC (“LVS” or the “Borrower”), a direct, wholly-owned subsidiary of Las Vegas Sands Corp. (“LVSC”) and certain of the Borrower’s other domestic subsidiaries (the “Guarantors”) entered into a Third Amendment (the “Amendment Agreement”) to the Existing Credit Agreement (as defined below) with certain of the Lenders party thereto and The Bank of Nova Scotia (“Scotiabank”), as Administrative Agent and Collateral Agent. The Amendment Agreement amends the Second Amended and Restated Credit and Guaranty Agreement dated as of December 19, 2013 (as amended previously, the “Existing Credit Agreement” and, as amended by the Amendment Agreement, the “Amended Credit Agreement”), among LVS, as Borrower, the Guarantors, various Lenders, Scotiabank, as Administrative Agent and Collateral Agent, and the other parties thereto. Capitalized terms used herein and not defined herein are defined in the Amended Credit Agreement.
Pursuant to the Amendment Agreement, term loan lenders will provide refinancing term loans (by way of continuing or replacing existing term loans) in an aggregate amount of $2,188,125,000 for the purpose of effecting a repricing of term loans. The term loans bear interest, at the Borrower’s option, (i) at an adjusted Eurodollar rate plus an “applicable margin” credit spread or (ii) at an alternative base rate plus an “applicable margin” credit spread. The Amendment Agreement lowers the “applicable margin” credit spread for adjusted Eurodollar rate term loans from 2.50% to 2.25% per annum and lowers the “applicable margin” credit spread for alternative base rate term loans from 1.50% to 1.25% per annum. Additionally, the Amendment Agreement lowers the adjusted Eurodollar rate “floor” from 0.75% to 0.00% per annum (and thereby effectively lowers the alternative base rate “floor” from 1.75% per annum to 1.00% per annum).
Other than the items indicated above, the terms and conditions of the Existing Credit Agreement are unchanged.
Some of the lenders, agents and arrangers under the Amendment Agreement and Amended Credit Agreement and their respective affiliates have provided, and may provide in the future, investment banking, commercial banking and other financial services for LVSC and its subsidiaries in the ordinary course of business, for which they have received and will receive customary compensation.
The information set forth above in Item 1.01 is incorporated herein by reference.
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report on Form 8-K to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned, thereunto duly authorized.
Dated: December 27, 2016
