Willis Securities, Inc. entered into a Revolving Note and Cash Subordination Agreement with SunTrust Bank PLC, as administrative agent, BMO Harris Bank, N.A., as syndication agent, Lloyds Bank PLC, as documentation agent, and the lenders party thereto.  Pursuant to the Credit Agreement, the lenders named therein provided Willis Securities with $300 million revolving note facility, which will be available for drawing from March 3, 2014 through March 3, 2015. The aggregated unpaid principal amount of all advances must be repaid on or before March 4, 2016, one year after the end of the Credit Period. Proceeds under the Credit Facility will be used for regulatory capital purposes related to securities underwriting only, which will allow Willis Securities to meet or exceed capital requirements of regulatory agencies, self-regulatory agencies, exchanges and their clearinghouses, including the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority.  Accordingly, the Credit Agreement is on terms consistent with the subordination requirements and in compliance with the regulations imposed by the relevant Regulatory Authorities in order to be included as regulatory capital. Advances under the Credit Facility shall bear interest at a rate equal to (a) for Eurocurrency Rate Loans, LIBOR plus 1.50% to 2.25%, and (b) for Base Rate Loans, the of the Federal Funds Rate plus 1/2 of 1%, the “prime rate” as announced by SunTrust Bank, and LIBOR plus 1.00%, plus 0.50% to 1.25%, in each case, based upon Willis Group Holdings Public Limited Company’s guaranteed senior-unsecured long term debt rating.  In addition, Willis Securities will also pay a commitment fee equal to 0.25% to 0.40% of the committed amount of the Credit Facility that has not been borrowed. Conditions to borrowing under the Credit Facility include the accuracy and completeness in all material respects of all representations and warranties in the loan documentation and that no default under the Credit Facility shall exist, or would result from such borrowing or the application of the proceeds thereof.  Each advance under the Credit Facility is due for repayment one year after the making of such advance, and payments under the Credit Facility are subordinated to the claims of any un-subordinated creditors of Willis Securities.
