CenturyLink, Inc. Wins New DHS EINSTEIN 3 Accelerated Task Order

CenturyLink, Inc. recently was awarded a task order from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security's Office of Cybersecurity and Communications to provide Intrusion Prevention Security Services, known as EINSTEIN 3 Accelerated (E3A) protections, to U.S. federal civilian agencies. The one-year task order was issued under a four-year indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity contract for EINSTEIN cybersecurity services that was previously awarded to CenturyLink in March 2013. DHS's EINSTEIN program uses network traffic patterns indicating known or suspected malicious cyber activity to help participating federal agencies protect their IT systems. The new task order includes additional managed security services and cybersecurity capabilities that will be integrated into the current CenturyLink E3A service, which is the first E3A intrusion prevention capability to achieve initial operating capability from DHS. The CenturyLink E3A service is also the first fully operational E3A system that is actively providing cybersecurity services to federal civilian agencies' end-users. The EINSTEIN program provides advanced email filtering and web Domain Name System spoofing protections, as well as signature-based intrusion detection, prevention and mitigation services to participating federal agencies under the guidance and oversight of DHS. EINSTEIN capabilities are provided through a combination of commercial off-the-shelf hardware and software, government-developed software, and commercially available managed security services that are enhanced by DHS-provided information. By supplying E3A cybersecurity services over its carrier-class network, CenturyLink is able to provide federal government agencies with the information security and reliability they need to carry out their missions.

CenturyLink, Inc. Enters into the First Amendment to its Amended and Restated Revolving Credit Facility

On December 3, 2014, CenturyLink, Inc. (CenturyLink) entered into the First Amendment to its amended and restated revolving credit facility among CenturyLink, Wells Fargo Bank, National Association, as administrative agent, and the other agents and lenders named therein. The Amendment amends CenturyLink's Amended and Restated Credit Agreement, dated as of April 6, 2012 (the Credit Facility), to, among other things, (i) extend the maturity date of the facility from April 6, 2017 to December 3, 2019 (unless terminated sooner upon the occurrence of certain events), (ii) modestly reduce certain specified interest rates on borrowings and commitment fees payable by CenturyLink and (iii) provide additional flexibility to CenturyLink under certain of the facility's covenants. Under the Amendment, interest will be assessed on future borrowings using either the London Interbank Offered Rate (LIBOR) or the base rate (as defined in the Credit Facility) plus an applicable margin between 1.00% to 2.25% per annum for LIBOR-based loans and 0.00% to 1.25% per annum for base rate loans depending on CenturyLink's then current senior unsecured long-term debt rating. Upon giving effect to the Amendment, the Credit Facility had 16 lenders, with commitments ranging from $3.5 million to $198.5 million.
