11. SUBSEQUENT EVENT
On April 16, 2008, the Company entered into a Second Amended and Restated Credit Agreement (the Credit Agreement) among the Company, Protective Life Insurance Company (PLICO), the Several Lenders from time to time party thereto, and Regions Bank, as Administrative Agent, to increase the commitment to a maximum principal amount of $500 million (the New Credit Facility). The Company and PLICO have the right in certain circumstances to request that the commitment under the New Credit Facility be increased up to a maximum principal amount of $600 million. Balances outstanding under the New Credit Facility will accrue interest at a rate equal to (i) either the prime rate or the London Interbank Offered Rate (LIBOR), plus (ii) a spread based on the ratings of the Companys senior unsecured long-term debt. The Credit Agreement provides that the Company is liable for the full amount of any obligations for borrowings or letters of credit, including those of PLICO, under the New Credit Facility. The maturity date on the New Credit Facility is April 16, 2013. On March 31, 2008, the Company had $20 million outstanding under its existing $200 million revolving line of credit due July 30, 2009 (the Existing Credit Facility). The Company paid the outstanding balance under the Existing Credit Facility in full on April 16, 2008. There is currently no balance outstanding under the New Credit Facility. In addition, the Company was in compliance with all financial debt covenants as of March 31, 2008.
