HORACE MANN EDUCATORS CORPORATION (NYSE:HMN) Files An 8-K Creation of a Direct Financial Obligation or an Obligation under an Off-Balance Sheet Arrangement of a Registrant
As previously disclosed, on June 24, 2019, Horace Mann Educators Corporation (Company), as borrower, replaced its current line of credit with a new five-year Credit Agreement (Credit Agreement). The new Credit Agreement increased the amount available on this senior revolving credit facility to $225 million from $150 million. PNC Capital Markets, LLC and JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A. served as joint leads on the new agreement, with The Northern Trust Company, U.S. Bank National Association, KeyBank National Association, Comerica Bank and Illinois National Bank participating in the syndicate. Terms and conditions of the new Credit Agreement are substantially consistent with the prior agreement, with an interest rate based on LIBOR plus 115 basis points. The Company utilized the senior revolving credit facility to partially fund the acquisition of National Teachers Associates Life Insurance Company (NTA). Moving forward, the Company will use the senior revolving credit facility for ongoing working capital, capital expenditures and general corporate expenditures.
As described in Item 8.01 below, on July 1, 2019, the Company completed its acquisition of NTA. To fund a portion of the purchase price, the Company utilized $180 million from its senior revolving credit facility as of July 3, 2019. The Company expects to reduce the amount outstanding under the senior revolving credit facility in the coming days as NTA and its subsidiaries are expected to make an approved distribution to the Company. By year-end 2019, the Company expects to have $135 million outstanding under the senior revolving credit facility, with a debt-to-capital ratio below 25% and RBC ratios at each of its insurance subsidiaries at 425% or greater.
The Company issued a news release announcing on July 1, 2019, that it completed the acquisition of all the equity interests in NTA to a Purchase Agreement (Agreement) dated as of December 10, 2018, by and among the Company and Ellard Family Holdings, Inc., Brian M. Ellard and The JCE Exempt Trust. The stated purchase price of the transaction was $405 million plus an additional $20 million (approximately) representing NTA’s share of “adjusted earnings” (as determined in accordance with the terms of the Agreement) from July 1, 2018 to July 1, 2019. As a result of the acquisition, NTA became a wholly owned subsidiary of the Company. A copy of the news release is filed as Exhibit 99.2 to this report.
The information set forth in Item 2.03 is incorporated herein by reference.
