Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

The information set forth under Item 2.03, “Creation of a Direct Financial Obligation or an Obligation under an Off-Balance Sheet Arrangement of a Registrant” is incorporated herein by reference.

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

On April 18, 2012, Moody’s Corporation (the “Company”) and certain of its subsidiaries entered into a five-year senior, unsecured revolving credit facility (the “Facility”) with JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A., as Administrative Agent, Bank of America, N.A. and Citibank, N.A. as Co-Syndication Agents, and RBS Citizens, N.A. and The Bank of Tokyo-Mitsubishi UFJ, Ltd. as Co-Documentation Agents, and other lenders in an aggregate principal amount of $1 billion that expires in April 2017. The Facility replaces the $1 billion 5-year facility that was scheduled to expire in September 2012. The proceeds from the Facility will be used for general corporate purposes, including, without limitation, support for the Company’s $1 billion commercial paper program, share repurchases and acquisition financings. Interest on borrowings under the Facility is payable at rates that are based on the London InterBank Offered Rate (“LIBOR”) plus a premium that can range from 77.5 basis points to 120 basis points depending on the Company’s ratio of total indebtedness to earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (“Total Debt to EBITDA Ratio”), as set forth in the Facility agreement. The Company also pays quarterly facility fees, regardless of borrowing activity under the Facility. The quarterly fees for the Facility can range from 10 basis points of the Facility amount to 17.5 basis points, depending on the Company’s Total Debt to EBITDA Ratio.

The Facility contains covenants that, among other things, restrict the ability of the Company and its subsidiaries, without the approval of the lenders, to engage in mergers, consolidations, asset sales, transactions with affiliates and sale-leaseback transactions or to incur liens, as set forth in the Facility agreement. The Facility also contains a financial covenant that requires the Company to maintain a Total Debt to EBITDA Ratio of not more than 4 to 1 at the end of any fiscal quarter. Upon the occurrence of certain financial or economic events, significant corporate events or certain other events of default constituting an event of default under the Facility, all loans outstanding under the Facility (including accrued interest and fees payable thereunder) may be declared immediately due and payable and all commitments under the Facility may be terminated. In addition, certain other events of default under the Facility would automatically result in amounts due becoming immediately due and payable and all commitments being terminated.

A copy of the Facility agreement is included as Exhibit 4.1 to this Current Report.
