The Second Amendment increases (i)the aggregate principal amount
of the term loan A facility (the Term A Loan) by
$300million to $1,030million and (ii)the aggregate principal
amount of commitments under the revolving credit facility
(theRevolving Credit Facility) by $100million to
$500million. The Second Amendment also reduces the pricing
applicable to the loans under the Term A Loan and Revolving
Credit Facility by 25 basis points and reduces the unused
commitment fee applicable to the Revolving Credit Facility by 5
basis points. The loans under the repriced Term A Loan and
Revolving Credit Facility bear interest at rates based upon, at
the option of BKIS, either (i)the base rate plus a margin of
between 25 and 100basis points depending on the total leverage
ratio of Black Knight Financial Services, LLC, a Delaware limited
liability company and the direct parent company of BKIS
(Holdings), and its restricted subsidiaries on a
consolidated basis (theConsolidated Leverage Ratio) and
(ii)the Eurodollar rate plus a margin of between 125 and 200basis
points depending on the Consolidated Leverage Ratio, subject to a
Eurodollar rate floor of zero basis points. Until the delivery of

margin of 175 basis points. In addition, BKIS will pay an unused

commitments under the Revolving Credit Facility, also depending
on the Consolidated Leverage Ratio. The Second Amendment extends
the maturity date applicable to the loans under the Term A Loan
and the commitment and loans under the Revolving Credit Facility
by approximately two years such that the repriced loans under the
Term A Loan and the Revolving Credit Facility now mature on
February25, 2022. The proceeds of the increased Term A Loan and
Revolving Credit Facility were used to complete the redemption of
the 5.75% Senior Notes due 2023 issued by BKIS and Black Knight
