Brunswick Corporation Enters into an Amended and Restated Credit Agreement

On June 26, 2014, Brunswick Corporation entered into an amended and restated credit agreement with the subsidiaries of the company party thereto, the lenders party thereto and JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A., as administrative agent. The credit agreement amends and restates the company's existing credit agreement, dated as of March 21, 2011. The credit agreement provides for a $300,000,000 facility with capacity to add $100,000,000 of additional commitments, and contains terms that differ from the prior credit agreement, including, among other things: providing for a maturity date of June 26, 2019; removing the minimum fixed charge coverage ratio and adding a minimum interest coverage ratio of 3.50 to 1.00 and a maximum leverage ratio of, initially, 3.00 to 1.00, subject to increases in certain circumstances; converting the credit agreement from a secured asset-based facility to a secured cash flow-based facility and removing the borrowing base limitations on the company's capacity to borrow; replacing the commitment fee payable on unused commitments with a facility fee payable on the total amount of the commitments. The facility fee will be, initially, 0.25% per year. After the first delivery of financial statements, the rate will be determined by reference to a grid based on the company's leverage ratio, with a range of 0.20% to 0.35%, until the occurrence of the investment grade release date, on and after which the rate will be determined by reference to a grid based on certain of the company's credit ratings by S&P and Moody's with a range of 0.125% to 0.35%. The investment grade release date will occur when the company achieves certain ratings at a time when its leverage ratio at the end of each of the prior two fiscal quarters shall have been less than or equal to 2.25 to 1.00; amending the interest rates on loans to apply in addition to the facility fee and to be, initially, either a LIBOR rate plus a margin of 1.50%, or a base rate plus a margin of 0.50%. After the first delivery of financial statements, the margins will be determined by reference to a grid based on the company's leverage ratio, with a range of 1.30% to 1.90% for LIBOR rate loans, and a range of 0.30% to 0.90% for base rate loans (provided that the rate will not be lower than the initial rate until December 26, 2014), until the occurrence of the investment grade release date, on and after which the rate will be determined by reference to a grid based on the company's credit ratings, with a range of 1.00% to 1.90% for LIBOR rate loans, and a range of 0% to 0.90% for base rate loans. The amended and restated facility will, initially, continue to be secured by a security agreement between the company and the subsidiary guarantors and JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A. as administrative agent, pursuant to which the obligations of the company and the guarantees of the subsidiaries under the credit agreement are secured by a first priority security interest in most of the company's and the subsidiary guarantors' existing and future accounts receivable, inventory, equipment, intellectual property, other personal property and equity interests in substantially all their present and future directly held domestic subsidiaries. The amended and restated facility includes a collateral release provision under which all the collateral will be released if at any time on or after December 26, 2014 the company achieves certain ratings at a time when its leverage ratio at the end of each of the prior two fiscal quarters shall have been less than or equal to 2.25 to 1.00. These conditions have been satisfied as of this date. Failure at any subsequent time prior to the investment grade release date to maintain such ratings shall result in a requirement to reinstate the collateral (provided that the collateral cannot be reinstated at any point once the investment grade release date occurs).
