Item 1.01 Entry Into a Material Definitive Agreement.
On May 19, 2010, Regal Cinemas Corporation (Regal Cinemas), a wholly owned subsidiary of Regal Entertainment Group (REG), entered into a sixth amended and restated credit agreement (the Amended Senior Credit Facility), with Credit Suisse AG, Cayman Islands Branch, as Administrative Agent (Credit Suisse) and the lenders party thereto (the Lenders), which consists of a term loan facility (the Existing Term Facility) with a final maturity date in November 2016. All terms used but not otherwise defined shall have the meaning ascribed to them in the Amended Senior Credit Facility.
On February 23, 2011 Regal Cinemas entered into a permitted secured refinancing agreement (the Refinancing Agreement) with Regal Entertainment Holdings, Inc., REG, the Guarantors, Credit Suisse, and the Lenders, which amends and refinances the Existing Term Facility under the Amended Senior Credit Facility. Pursuant to the Refinancing Agreement, Regal Cinemas consummated a permitted secured refinancing of the Existing Term Facility in the amount of $1,006.0 million, and in accordance therewith the Lenders advanced term loans in an aggregate principal amount of $1,006.0 million with a final maturity date in August 2017(the New Term Loans). Together with other amounts provided by Regal Cinemas, proceeds of the New Term Loans were applied to repay all of the outstanding principal and accrued and unpaid interest on the Existing Term Facility under the Amended Senior Credit Facility in effect immediately prior to the making of the New Term Loans.
In addition to extending the maturity date of the New Term Loans, the Refinancing Agreement also amends the Amended Senior Credit Facility by reducing the interest rate on the New Term Loans, by providing, at Regal Cinemas option, either a base rate or an adjusted LIBOR rate plus, in each case, an applicable margin that is determined according to the consolidated leverage ratio of Regal Cinemas and its subsidiaries. Such applicable margin will be either 2.00% or 2.25% in the case of base rate loans and either 3.00% or 3.25% in the case of LIBOR rate loans. The Refinancing Agreement also amends the Second Amended and Restated Guaranty and Collateral Agreement, dated May 19, 2010, to exclude Margin Stock from the grant of the security interest in the Collateral used to secure the obligations under the Amended Senior Credit Facility.
The Refinancing Agreement is filed as Exhibit 4.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and is incorporated herein by reference. The foregoing summary of the Refinancing Agreement is qualified in its entirety by reference to such Exhibit to this Current Report on Form 8-K.
The description of the Refinancing Agreement in Item 1.01 is incorporated herein by reference.
