Swift Transportation Company to Replace Existing Senior Secured Credit Facility with an Amended and Restated Senior Secured Credit Facility

Swift Transportation Company initiated the process to replace its existing senior secured credit facility with an amended and restated senior secured credit facility. The Amended and Restated Credit Facility is expected to include a $450 million revolving credit facility maturing in 2019, a $450 million delayed-draw first lien term loan A tranche maturing in 2019 and a $450 million first lien term loan B tranche maturing in 2019. The purpose of the Amended and Restated Credit Facility is to reduce interest rates and improve certain other terms in a manner consistent with Swift's improved credit profile, as well as to extend the maturities of the Existing Credit Facility. Proceeds from the first lien term loan B tranche under the Amended and Restated Credit Facility will be used to repay the company's existing the first lien term loan B-1 and B-2 tranches under its Existing Credit Facility. The first lien term loan A tranche is expected to remain undrawn at the close while the company anticipates utilizing the delayed-draw feature to redeem its existing 10.0% Senior Secured Second Lien Notes on or before December 31, 2014. The Amended and Restated Facility is expected to close on June 9, 2014, subject to customary closing conditions. There can be no assurance that the company will be able to affect the foregoing credit facility changes, and the final terms may differ from current expectations.
