Story continues below

On February 21, 2018, Ebix entered into an agreement expanding its existing credit facility from $450 million to $650 million, to assist in funding its growth. The $200 million increase in the bank line was the result of many members of the existing bank group expanding their share of the credit facility and the addition of BBVA Compass and Bank Of The West to the Banking Syndicate, which further diversifies Ebix’s lending group under the credit facility to ten participants. The syndicated bank group now comprises ten leading financial institutions that include Regions Bank, PNC Bank, BMO Harris Bank, BBVA Compass, Fifth Third Bank, KeyBank, Bank Of The West, Silicon Valley Bank, Cadence Bank and Trustmark National Bank. Regions Bank continued to lead the banking group while serving as the administrative and collateral agent. PNC Bank and BMO Harris Bank were added as co syndication agents, BBVA Compass and Fifth Third Bank as co documentation agent, while Regions Capital Markets, PNC Capital Markets and BMO Capital Markets acted as joint lead arrangers and joint bookrunners. The new credit facility has the following key components is a 5-year term loan for $250 million and a 5-year revolving credit facility for $400 million. The new credit facility also allows for up to $150 million of incremental facilities. As of closing, the facility interest rates will be based on a leveraged-based pricing grid.

On February 27, 2018, the Company issued a press release announcing the details of this expansion of the Credit Agreement. A copy of this press release is being filed as Exhibit 99.1 to this Form 8-K and is incorporated herein by reference in its entirety.
