Best Buy Co., Inc. to Pay $4.5 Million to Resolve Class Action

Best Buy Co., Inc. agreed to pay for $4.5 million in order to resolve allegations that it violated the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA). Best Buy automatically signed customers up for its rewards program without their knowledge. Best Buy then used the information in the rewards program database to contact consumers via telephone without their consent. The lawsuit claimed that as many 481,000 individuals were involved.

Best Buy Co., Inc. Enters into $1.25 Billion Five-Year Senior Unsecured Revolving Credit Facility Agreement

On June 30, 2014, Best Buy Co., Inc. entered into a $1.25 billion five-year senior unsecured revolving credit facility agreement with JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A. as administrative agent, and a syndicate of banks. The five-year facility agreement will replace the previous $1.5 billion senior unsecured revolving credit facility, with a syndicate of banks, including JPMorgan acting as administrative agent. The previous facility, which was originally scheduled to expire in October 2016, was terminated on June 30, 2014. The five-year facility agreement permits borrowings up to $1.25 billion and terminates in June 2019. No amounts are currently outstanding under the five-year facility agreement. The five-year facility agreement contains substantially the same terms as the previous facility. The company’s $500 million 364-day senior unsecured revolving credit facility agreement with JPMorgan, which was entered into on June 25, 2013, expired on June 25, 2014. The company deemed the credit available under the five-year facility sufficient given its current cash position and funds generated by operations. The interest rate under the five-year facility agreement is variable and is determined at the company's option as: the sum of JPMorgan's prime rate, the federal funds rate plus 0.5%, and the one-month London Interbank Offered Rate (LIBOR) plus 1%, and (b) a variable margin rate; or the LIBOR plus a variable margin rate. In addition, a facility fee is assessed on the commitment amount. The ABR Margin, LIBOR Margin and the facility fee are based upon the company's current senior unsecured debt rating. Under the five-year facility agreement, the ABR Margin ranges from 0.0% to 0.925%, the LIBOR Margin ranges from 1.000% to 1.925%, and the facility fee ranges from 0.125% to 0.325%. The five-year facility agreement is guaranteed by specified subsidiaries of the company and contains customary affirmative and negative covenants. Among other things, these covenants restrict the company's and certain of its subsidiaries' ability to incur certain types or amounts of indebtedness, incur liens on certain assets, make material changes in corporate structure or the nature of its business, dispose of material assets, engage in a change in control transaction, make certain foreign investments, enter into certain restrictive agreements, or engage in certain transactions with affiliates. The five-year facility agreement also contains covenants that require the company to maintain a maximum quarterly cash flow leverage ratio and a minimum quarterly interest coverage ratio. The five-year facility agreement contains customary default provisions including, but not limited to, failure to pay interest or principal when due and failure to comply with covenants.
