Item 1.01. Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.
On February 19, 2010, WESCO Distribution, Inc. (WESCO Distribution), a wholly owned subsidiary of WESCO International, Inc., together along with certain of WESCO Distributions subsidiaries and WESCO International, Inc., entered into a Limited Consent and Amendment No. 4 to Third Amended and Restated Revolving Credit Agreement (the Amendment), dated November 1, 2006, as amended (as amended, the Agreement).
The Amendment provides approval for certain legal entity restructuring actions to be completed by WESCO Distribution and its direct and indirect domestic and international subsidiaries, including (i) the establishment of three new legal entities; (ii) an amendment to certain Canadian dollar denominated intercompany notes; (iii) a contribution to capital of certain Canadian dollar denominated intercompany notes; and (iv) the sale of the Companys Mexican subsidiaries to its existing Netherlands based limited liability company.
In addition, the Amendment provides for certain changes to enhance the Companys risk management and hedging capacities, including (i) providing for an increase in surety bond capacity of up to $75 million; (ii) providing for an increase in permitted hedging activities to a maximum of $45 million; (iii) providing for an increase in permitted investments in foreign subsidiaries of up to $10 million; (iv) providing for the ability for certain Canadian subsidiaries to loan money to U.S. operating companies; and (v) raising the limit on Canadian letters of credit to $20 million.
Pursuant to the terms of the Amendment, WESCO Distribution has agreed to modify the Applicable Margins (as defined in the Agreement) paid to the Lenders (as defined in the Agreement) on borrowings and letters of credit. Depending upon the amount of excess borrowing availability under the Agreement, interest will be calculated at LIBOR plus a margin that ranges between 2.25% and 2.875% or at the Index Rate (prime rate published by the Wall Street Journal) plus a margin that ranges between 1.00% and 1.625%. This change represents a 1.125% to 1.25% adjustment in borrowing margin over the previous rates. The unused fee associated with the Agreement will not change and will range between 0.25% and 0.375%.
All other material terms and conditions of the Agreement remain unchanged.
The foregoing is a summary of the material terms and conditions of the Amendment and not a complete discussion of the Amendment. Accordingly, the foregoing is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Amendment attached to this Current Report as Exhibit 10.1, which is incorporated herein by reference.
