Story continues below

On September 30, 2019 (the “Closing Date”), Medpace Holdings, Inc. (the “Company”) obtained a new unsecured credit facility in an aggregate principal amount up to $50 million (the “New Credit Facility”) through its wholly owned subsidiaries, Medpace, Inc., as borrower (the “Borrower”), and Medpace IntermediateCo, Inc., as guarantor (the “Guarantor”).

On the Closing Date, the Borrower and PNC Bank, National Association (the “New Lender”), entered into a Loan Agreement (the “New Loan Agreement”) providing for the New Credit Facility, and the Guarantor executed a Guaranty Agreement providing for its guarantee of the payment and performance of the obligations under the New Loan Agreement. The New Loan Agreement provides that outstanding balances under the New Credit Facility will bear interest at a rate of LIBOR plus 100 basis points (1.00%). The New Loan Agreement also provides that the New Credit Facility will expire in 364 days from the Closing Date. The Company expects that any proceeds borrowed under the New Credit Facility will be utilized to fund working capital and for other general corporate purposes.  

The New Loan Agreement contains other customary loan terms, representations and warranties, and affirmative and negative covenants, in each case, subject to customary limitations, exceptions and exclusions. The New Loan Agreement contains certain events of default, including, among others, non-payment of principal or interest, breach of the covenants, cross default and cross acceleration to certain other indebtedness, defaults on monetary judgment orders, and certain bankruptcy and insolvency events.

As of the Closing Date, there were no outstanding borrowings under the New Credit Facility and $0.2 million in letters of credit outstanding related to certain operating lease obligations, which are secured by the New Credit Facility.  

This summary of the New Loan Agreement does not purport to be a complete description and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the New Loan Agreement, which is filed as Exhibit 10.1 hereto and incorporated herein by reference.

Item 1.02.Termination of a Material Definitive Agreement.

In connection with entering into the New Credit Facility described in Item 1.01, on September 30, 2019 (the “Termination Date”), the Company terminated its Senior Secured Credit Agreement dated as of December 8, 2016 (the “Prior Credit Agreement”) among Medpace IntermediateCo, Inc., as borrower (the “Prior Borrower”), and Medpace Acquisition, Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company, as parent guarantor (the “Parent Guarantor”), and Wells Fargo Bank, National Association, as administrative agent, and the lenders who are parties to the Prior Credit Agreement.

The Prior Credit Agreement provided for a Senior Secured Term Loan Facility of $165.0 million (the “Prior Senior Secured Term Loan Facility”) and a Senior Secured Revolving Credit Facility of $150.0 million (the “Prior Senior Secured Revolving Credit Facility” and, together with the Senior Secured Term Loan Facility, the “Prior Senior Secured Credit Facilities”) which were set to expire in December 2021.

The Prior Senior Secured Credit Facilities were guaranteed by the Parent Guarantor and its material, direct or indirect wholly owned domestic subsidiaries, with certain exceptions. All of the obligations under the Prior Senior Secured Credit Facilities were secured, subject to certain permitted liens and other exceptions, by substantially all of the assets of the Borrower and each guarantor.

In relation to the termination of the Prior Credit Agreement, the Prior Borrower has repaid all of its outstanding obligations under the Prior Senior Secured Credit Facilities. As a result, no amounts remain outstanding under the Prior Senior Secured Credit Facilities.

As of September 30, 2019, no amounts were drawn under the Prior Senior Secured Credit Facilities and no fees or penalties were incurred as a result of the termination, other than the payment of accrued commitment fees of $0.1 million through the Termination Date.

The information provided in Item 1.01 of this Current Report on Form 8-K is incorporated by reference into this Item 2.03.
