H.B. Fuller Approves Job Reductions

H.B. Fuller announced that it approved a termination and exit plan whereby it will lay off an undisclosed number of workers across all operating segments and take $3.7 million in after-tax charges, which will be spread across the next several quarters.

H.B. Fuller Company Enters Credit Agreement with JP Morgan Chase Bank, N.A., U.S. Bank National Association, Citibank, N.A., Morgan Stanley MUFG Loan Partners, LLC and Various Financial Institutions

On October 31, 2014, H.B. Fuller Company entered into a credit agreement with JP Morgan Chase Bank, N.A., as administrative agent, U.S. Bank National Association, Citibank, N.A. and Morgan Stanley MUFG Loan Partners, LLC, as co-syndication agents, and various financial institutions. The Credit Agreement establishes a $300 million multi-currency revolving credit facility and a $300 million term credit facility that the company can use to repay existing indebtedness, finance working capital needs, and for general corporate purposes of the company and its subsidiaries, including the acquisition of Tonsan Adhesive Inc. pursuant to an Equity Purchase Agreement dated June 24, 2014. The term credit facility may be drawn in not more than two tranches through the date that is 270 days after the effective date of the Credit Agreement. The credit facility replaces the company’s existing revolving credit facilities and expires on October 31, 2019, at which time the revolving credit loans mature. The company must repay the term loans on a quarterly basis (on the last day of each of March, June, September, and December), ending on June 30, 2019, in an aggregate amount equal to between 42.50% and 46.25% of the term loans, depending on the timing and amount of the Term Loan advances. The remaining amount of the term loans is due and payable on October 31, 2019. Subject to certain conditions, the company may prepay amounts due under the Credit Agreement. The Credit Agreement allows the company to borrow at interest rates that include, at the company’s option, (i) a spread over a floating rate equal to the great of the prime rate, the federal funds effective rate from time to time plus one-half of 1%, and the Adjusted LIBO Rate for a one month interest period plus 1%, or (ii) a spread over a fixed rate equal to the 1-, 2-, 3 or 6-month Adjusted LIBO Rate. The interest rate spread is determined by the rating of the company’s senior, unsecured, long-term debt.
