XPO LOGISTICS,INC. (NYSE:XPO) Files An 8-K Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement
Item 1.01. Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement
The disclosure contained in the second paragraph of Item 8.01 is incorporated into this Item 1.01 by reference.
Item 8.01. Other Events
XPO Logistics,Inc. (the “Company”) intends to incur new incremental term loans under its existing term loan credit agreement, subject to market conditions and certain customary conditions. The terms of the new term loans (the “Incremental Term Loan Facility”) are expected to be substantially similar to those relating to the loans outstanding under the Company’s existing term loan credit agreement, except with respect to issue price, the interest rate applicable to the Company’s borrowings under the Incremental Term Loan Facility, prepayment premiums in connection with certain voluntary prepayments thereof, and certain other provisions. Proceeds from borrowings under the Incremental Term Loan Facility are expected to be used for general corporate purposes, including to fund purchases of the Company’s common stock to its previously announced share repurchase plan.
In connection with the foregoing, on March7, 2019, the Company entered into Amendment No.4 to Credit Agreement (the “Amendment”), with certain of its subsidiaries party thereto, certain lenders party thereto, and Morgan Stanley Senior Funding,Inc., as administrative agent and collateral agent. The Amendment permits the Company to incur up to $500 million of incremental term loans under the existing credit agreement on or prior to June5, 2019 without adjusting the interest rate margin applicable to existing loans outstanding thereunder, unless the yield on such incremental term loans exceeds the yield on such existing loans by more than 0.75% per annum (in which case the margin applicable to such existing loans will be increased by the amount of such excess). The foregoing description of the Amendment is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Amendment, a copy of which will be filed with the Company’s quarterly report on Form10-Q for the period ending March31, 2019.
